Pajkatt departs from OG
Carry player Per Anders "Pajkatt" Olsson Lille has parted ways with OG, the organization announced on Thursday.
Pajkatt joined OG just over a month ago in the wake of Anathan "ana" Pham's decision to take a break from competitive Dota 2. OG cited chemistry issues as the reason for Pajkatt's quick turnaround.
“Pajkatt is a great player, and I feel blessed that I got the chance to learn from him," said Johan "n0tail" Sundstein in a statement, "but when a team with recent success brings in a new player, it is a difficult position to be in for anyone."
OG announced that they will be unveiling Pajkatt's replacement tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 4).
Flash Gaming disbands, owner alleges cheating scandals in Chinese CS:GO
This translation has not been independently verified by theScore esports.
The announcement arrives days after Flash loaned YuLun “Summer” Cai and YuanZhang “AttackeR” Sheng to TyLoo, resulting in KunHua “LOVEYY” Bai, Yangyang “ayaya” Zheng, and QiFang “Karsa” Su becoming free agents.
Enndy's post explained why the team arrived at the decision to disband, while also shedding details on certain cheating scandals throughout the Chinese CS:GO scene.
Such scandals supposedly include match-fixing, in-client cheats, problems with player safety, paid GOTV IP (real-time match streaming) acquisition during matches and tampering with internet cables while playing on LAN.
The founder also alleged that thousands of dollars worth of Chinese Yen was used to access GOTV demos, permitting participants to identify player positions.
