FunPlus Phoenix sniper Casper cadiaN Möller commented on the team’s technical defeat at FLASHPOINT Season 1 on CS: GO. Möller did not disclose the details of the situation, but stated that his teammates had already managed to warm up before the match, when they were told that they could not play.
“I am completely devastated. We sacrificed time with family and friends in order to succeed in a video game, but in the end we did not get the opportunity to even play it. I think this is the biggest injustice in my life.
In the situation with es3tag and Astralis, there is no room for grievances. We as a whole team support Patrick’s decision – he remains one of my favorite teammates in my entire career. But we are players, we want to play. Warm up in the studio, and then hear that we will not be able to perform … We are disappointed. That’s all I can say. It’s not very nice to make us ride around the world in an epidemic, preventing us from playing a match. All this is very sad. ”
The team was supposed to hold the relegation match against the Orgless squad on March 22 at 20:00 Moscow time, but a few minutes before the start of the meeting, the organizers reported a technical defeat for FPP. The announcement stated that the decision was made due to “replacements that occurred as part of the club.”
Astralis previously announced the signing of FPP player Patrick es3tag Hansen. He will join the team in the summer of 2020 when his contract is completed. The Dane noted that before leaving he would continue to be faithful to the FPM teammates. Why the team was not allowed to the match, despite the presence of all five players of the starting lineup, is not reported.
The composition of es3tag and cadiaN signed with FunPlus Phoenix on March 15th. He previously performed under the Heroic tag. On March 21, HLTV announced that the organization may abandon the roster due to rumors about the possible withdrawal of es3tag. At the time of publication of the news, FPP did not comment on the situation.
