The Ukrainian CS:GO team HellRaisers have announced the departure of long time player AdreN.


Earlier today, HellRaisers hinted on their Twitter page that someone would be removed from their CS:GO team. They have now confirmed that rumor, announcing via their Facebook page that their CS:GO player Dauren "AdreN" Kistaubayev will be leaving the team. AdreN has been with the team since it's formation in July 2013. 

The organization states that the reason for his departure was due to recent unsatisfactory results, noticeably at ESL Cologne and SLTV StarSeries Season X. Even before that, HellRaisers had suffered from disappointing results at Dreamhack Valencia and EMS One Katowice, dropping out in the semi-finals and group stages respectively.

Kistaubayev has yet to announce his next team, but he has announced that he will still continue to play "after a short break". He had this to say in his official statement:

"It is not a secret, that our last results were unsatisfactory, to say the least. It was necessary to change something and all this went on that way. At the same time, I am glad and upset. I am glad because from now on, I will be able to fully reveal my potential; and I am upset because I will not play together with my friends from HellRaisers. I wish all the guys good luck and more victories. I really want them to start winning. Thanks to the team, its management and all the staff of HellRaisers. Thanks to all, who supported us. I ask all to cheer for HellRaisers and not to stop believing in team. The team will show itself anyway and I hope in a nearest time. I will not leave the gaming scene and will continue to play, but after a little break. Therefore, do not forget to cheer for me! Bye all, bye HellRaisers!"

The team is currently at the bottom of the FACEIT League with 0 wins and two losses. They will also be playing in the upcoming Game Show League. 

The organization has still yet to find a new player, but says that they will keep the public "up to date on the situation"

HellRaisers now has the following roster:

Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov
Ukraine Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Ukraine Emil "kucher" Akhundov
