x6tence and the Danish players that plied their trade for the Spanish organization in the second half of last year have parted ways following the conclusion of the OneTap League 2020 Finals, where they lost to Movistar Riders in the grand final.
The Danish squad’s future had been in doubt since the beginning of the month, as it had been cut down to just three players, Jesper “TENZKI” Plougmann, Daniel “mertz” Mertz and Jonas “Queenix” Dideriksen after Marcus “maNkz” Kjeldsen and Magnus “Nodios” Olsen returned to Copenhagen Flames, the team they had been bought out from last year.
The Spanish organization has now revealed it plans on taking a step back from the international stage and will instead work on developing local talent after fielding Argentine and Danish squads in 2020.
x6tence’s original Danish roster, signed in June of 2020, peaked at No. 36 last September and competed at cs_summit 6 Europe, where they finished in 13-16th place, but after benching Hector “HECTOz” Jensen and losing Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen and Ismail “refrezh” Ali to MAD Lions, the squad wasn’t able to reach the same heights, falling short in several DreamHack Open Europe qualifiers and competing uneventfully in a handful of Nine to Five cups.
“This decision is part of x6tence’s objective to reinforce community values and closeness with its fans, as well as with the detection of national talent that our organization, a historical reference in Valve’s shooter, has always shown,” the Spanish organization stated, “which leads us to recover our essence and to bet on the latent talent at the base of our country.”
The remaining members on x6tence‘s former squad were:
Morten “zEVES” Vollan (coach)
