American esportsman Owen oBo Sklatter explained why he left the CS: GO roster of Complexity Gaming. In an interview with the HLTV.org portal, Sklatter said that the team stopped in Europe and did not intend to leave there, despite the fact that he himself did not feel safe there.
“I have lived in various hotels in Denmark, Serbia and the UK. During travel, there were often conditions that were not intended for play. This is no one’s fault, it is a logical consequence of the fact that the team from Dallas had to move to another continent with zero infrastructure.
The teammates showed no interest in returning to America and I don’t blame them. They feel comfortable at home with their families during this difficult time. Over the course of the year, it became more and more evident that this is a permanent life situation rather than a temporary one. I had no reason to believe that everything would change anytime soon.
I have never signed up for permanent residence in Europe. I did my best and stayed as long as possible, but you cannot expect me to stay there forever. Sure, I missed home, but I didn’t leave because I was homesick or something. I didn’t feel safe. “
OBo left Complexity Gaming on September 22nd. He has played for the team since June 2019 and won several #HomeSweetHome championships with it, as well as the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 European final.
