GODSENT Shuffles Lineup: Draken Benched, Rusty Leaves Team

The recent roster update leaves GODSENT with only two available players 

GODSENT shakes up their roster once again, as William “draken” Sundin is moved to the bench and Alfred “RuStY” Karlsson departs from the team. These alterations come shortly after Joel “joel” Holmlund's benching, resulting in a depleted lineup with only two active players and coach/stand-in Maikil “Golden” Selim remaining on the roster.

Over the course of the past four months, draken emerged as one of the standout performers for the team, sharing the title of the joint-highest-rated player with joel, both averaging an impressive 1.11 rating. RuStY, on the other hand, maintained a solid performance with an average rating of 1.01 during the same period.

The team's tenure with the organization since January has been marked by a relatively lackluster performance. Their most noteworthy results include a third-place finish in Thunderpick Bitcoin Series 2 and a respectable top-four placement in BetBoom Playlist Urbanistic 2023. They secured victories over prominent opponents such as BIG, Sprout, and HEET before succumbing to Cloud9 in the subsequent stage.

The roster fell short in their attempts to qualify for LAN events, missing out on every opportunity. Their most recent setback was their failure to qualify for ESL Challenger Katowice, adding to their previous disappointment of not making it through the open qualifiers for the BLAST.tv Paris Major Europe RMR.

“Due to a few circumstances I feel like this project never really had a chance to succeed,” RuStY wrote on Twitter after GODSENT broke the news. “With that said I'm looking for new opportunities, if you need a player or a stand-in, don't hesitate to contact me.”

Draken took to Twitter to express a similar sentiment.

“Different views/vision on this Counter-Strike project, but this is best for all parts [sic]. I wish the team and staff good luck! Contact me or [my agency] if interested, still want to play and prove myself.”
