WinOut Loses CS Team
WINOUT - WinOut has confirmed that they have lost their CS team, citing lack of professionalism as the main reason for their removal.
Anyone who has kept up with the North American scene knows the former WinOut team. They dominated the ETS LAN in Montreal, Canada and performed incredibly at KODE5 before that. With their recent addition of Mehler from x3o, they looked like they would dominate the scene.
However, the team has now lost its sponsorship by the WinOut organization.
Doug Jacobson, owner of WinOut said that "the team was aboslutely incredible in-game, but professional gaming requires a lot more than the ability to win matches. You need a certain marketability to obtain sponsorship and a fan base for the long term. Sadly, this team just doesn't have the skills or the professionalism required to do so."
He added that he "thinks it's a waste of talent."
It is unconfirmed where the team will end up next - they are currently playing under their own name, "The Delta Elite Force" - but there have been rumors of them moving to a new organization. The team was not under a formal contract at WinOut.
The team was not available for comment.
We will update as reports come in.
