The European esports organization Team Secret announced the benching of Rigon “rigoN” Gashi today due to the player having “busy educational schedule”.
Gashi who is currently 20-years-old has announced via a Tweet that he needs some time off Counter-Strike as he needs to focus on finishing his studies. He also went on to mention that in his absence Team Secret is trying out a replacement, with more update on the situation being announced in the near future.
Team Secret made a comeback to Counter-Strike last year after signing a less experienced rookie side. Since then the team has gone on to participate in a few qualifiers without attaining a huge success.
Their recent outing at DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020: European Qualifier saw them make their way past the Open Qualifiers before being defeated in the opening match of the Closed Qualifier against Heroic. They did give a good fight before going down, but it was clear as day that the team really needs to put in more work before they can attain something substantial.
Let’s see who Secret pick up as a replacement for Rigon, do they go for another lesser-known player or do they pick up some with good experience to help lift the team to a better position.
