The Russian organization takes a break in competitive CS:GO due to the founder's personal troubles.
The organisation's founder, Alexey “Hard Play” Baranov, says Hard Legion aims to return to the competitive Counter-Strike scene as soon as possible.
After nearly a year and a half of holding their CS:GO roster, Hard Legion is temporarily leaving the competitive scene. The main reason behind the temporary leave of absence is family-related. Baranov's child is currently ill, and so stepping away to make his role as a parent a priority is understandable.
Baranov also mentioned in his statement, that it was his first experience with an esports’ organization and it was not perfect.
Still, Baranov declares that Hard Legion will come back with a new CS:GO roster as soon as his child recovers.
We hope Hard Play, Baranov and his family stay strong during this difficult time. As well as a speedy recovery to his child.
