On Monday, Polish organization Anonymo Esports revealed that their CS:GO team would be disbanded after failing to qualify for the BLAST.tv Paris Major Europe RMR.
“We would like to inform you that our CS:GO team has decided to end playing together in Anonymo,” the translation of the tweet read.
“Thus, each player can look for new options, and we will keep our fingers crossed for the next steps in their careers. Gentlemen, thank you for writing an emotional story.”
After the organization officially announced the disbandment, Paweł “innocent” Mocek and Grzegorz “SZPERO” Dziamałek provided fans with more insight into the decision in TwitLongers.
According to Łukasz “mwlky” Pachucki and other players, failing to qualify for the BLAST.tv Paris Major Europe RMR was the major reason for the organization’s decision. In his follow-up tweet after the announcement, innocent revealed that the entire period drained him, and he wanted time away to rest.
“I really need some time to cool off. This period of time really drained a lot of my mental health, but with [the] correct opportunity I will just shake it off and get back to the server,” innocent wrote.
In his TwitLonger, SZPERO disclosed that he did not join the team at the best time but was aware of what he was getting into. He also said several factors led to their poor performance at the RMR, including the absence of a coaching staff.
“I joined the team at a very difficult time, but I knew what I was signing up for. The goal was to improve our game and be ready for [the] RMR and then decide what to do next. We played this tournament better than everything else, but we were not satisfied with our performance in any way,” SZPERO wrote.
“[Other than] that, there were other factors, such as the departure of the coaching staff. The only thing I can write is that despite not the best results – playing with the boys gave me fun, which I didn’t experience recently. I could fully trust them all and they are just super homies.”
The team also included Patryk “Demho” Tomaszewski, Arek “Vegi” Nawojski, and Adrian “imd” Pieper as head coach.
Prior to the disbandment, Anonymo’s core had been together for more than one year. Innocent had the longest stint with the organization, joining Anonymo a little over two years ago.
SZPERO was the most recent addition to the team and was signed at the start of January. He played with Anonymo in a number of European Development Championship events before their attempt to qualify for the BLAST.tv Paris Major Europe RMR.
Within the time the squad was together, it competed in several online events and three major offline tournaments. Anonymo earned a championship title at the Gdansk Games 2021 and missed out on qualifying for the PGL Major Antwerp through the Europe RMR by a slim margin.
The BLAST.tv Paris Major Europe RMR saw Anonymo struggle through the open qualifiers before they were eliminated in the closed qualifier. They ended their run with a 1-3 record which featured close losses.
