PENTA Sports has released their roster, the organization announced Wednesday.

"This time last year we ended up having half a team and not being able to compete properly for months, disappointing our fans and ourselves," the organization said in a statement. "This year, after losing suNny and HS, we have to face the same situation yet again, and to prevent last year’s situation we decided to mutually terminate the contracts of our remaining CS:GO players."

PENTA's roster consisted of Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend, Jesse "zehN" Linjala and Pawel "innocent" Mocek at the time of disbandment. Miikka "suNny" Kemppi and Kevin "HS" Tarn were on the roster during the PGL Major Kraków 2017, but left the team in August to join mousesports and OpTic Gaming respectively.

The team currently holds a spot in the offline qualifier for the next Major, which will remain with the three released players if they stay together. If the players finalize their roster, however, PENTA are open to negotiations. According to a tweet from kRYSTAL, the trio will continue to play together under the name Seed.
