Arbalet Leaves UNiTED

EASTERN EUROPE – The tournament organization has dropped the Eastern European mix team after disappointing results.

Murat "Arbalet" Zhumashevich - the proprietor of one of the upcoming eSports tournament circuits in the Arbalet Cup Series - has decided to pull out of the Eastern European mix team UNiTED, made of 3 Russians, one Kazakh and one Ukrainian, due to their poor placings in the recent tournaments.

The team was a strong favorite in the area, taking most tournaments in the scene if not a favorite to win them, but their recent international rankings leave much to be desired, leaving group stage in ESWC and Arbalet Cup Europe’s second group stage.

Murat "Arbalet" Zhumashevich told gameinside.ua:

"The last two tournaments would be decisive to determine their future and the question of their support, Zhumashevich is quoted as saying at gameinside.ua.  At ESWC it all ended in the first group stage due to the fact there was no training at all - they rested for a month."

"For Arbalet Cup Dallas, they did not have enough time to solve all visa issues and arrange an interview at the embassy because of their disorder, so they will not take part in the tournament.  The team showed good results only in CIS, but the task was far more ambitious and, as we have seen with Na´Vi, completely doable.  Therefore, the team remain without a sponsor, and their future will not only depend on themselves."

Dmitri "hooch" Bogdanov told HLTV.org that:

"We were disappointed but still it was expected because we failed to live up to hopes of Murat Zhumashevich," Bogdanov told HLTV.org.  "This man gave us everything a pro player needs to be number 1 but we could not make it and we feel sorry for that.

"We had problems with getting visas and we could not prepare properly for ESWC, but still we could have made it to the 2nd group stage at least.  We were late with visas to the USA because in Russia it really takes a lot of time to fix get visas to get into the US, the closest meeting was on July 30th.  Me and all players from my team are very thankful to Murat Zhumashevich, for all good things he did for us."
UNiTED is:
