Following the final tournament of the 2023/24 Counter-Strike season, organisations and their players have begun their month-long break from professional competition.

With the break officially starting after the BLAST Premier Spring Final, the window for teams to transfer players and make roster changes is now open.

On the first day of the player break, Team Liquid and G2 Esports wasted no time in announcing changes to their CS2 rosters.

Rumours had been circling around Team Liquid and their roster with the possibility of Casper “cadiaN” Moller leaving the European organisation, after a turbulent six months with the team since he joined from Heroic in December of last year.

Although he was named the in-game leader and was far from the worst player on the roster, it doesn’t come as a surprise to hear of his benching and wish to join another team, as cadiaN and the rest of the roster struggle to gel and perform at the level expected of them during their time together.

Before their seventh-eighth-place finish at IEM Dallas, the rumours gathered more traction about the potential roster change, with cadiaN’s name being thrown into the conversation more than anyone else.

Meanwhile, it is being reported that Liquid is in negotiations with FURIA to send Felipe “skullz” Medeiros to the Brazilian organisation, with talks being labelled as “positive” due to both parties wanting to reach an agreement.

If skullz is transferred to FURIA, it will leave Liquid with two spots to be filled on their Counter-Strike roster before they take their place in the BLAST Premier Fall Groups on July 29, with the in-game leader and AWP role needed to complete the roster.

Earlier in the day, G2 Esports announced that Nemanja “nexa” Isakovic will be removed from the starting line-up and will seek a move to a new team during the player break.

Nexa joined G2 from OG in November of last year and was able to win IEM Dallas with the team; however, with stars such as Nikola “NiKo” Kovac, Ilya “M0NESY” Osipov, and Nemanja “huNter-“ Kovac surrounding him on this roster, nexa was always going to be the first player to be moved on, in an attempt to improve the squad.

Outside of the team’s in-game leader, Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen, nexa recorded the worst rating in the last three months at 0.98 out of 2.

G2 confirmed that they will help nexa find his next team, with the rifler saying that he is open to offers in any role.
