BIG replace Chaos at IEM Global Challenge 2020
Chaos refused to participate in the IEM Global Challenge 2020 due to the illness of the players and officially left the professional scene in CS:GO. The North American team will be replaced by BIG, invited on the basis of the ESL rankings.
If there was any path we could have taken to have a different outcome god knows we would have.— Chaos EC? (@ChaosEC) December 7, 2020
Their amazing performance and progress especially over the past few months makes this even harder.
If any org is interested in this team please reach out to our GM @pandaeg0
The departure of Chaos from the professional CS:GO is dictated by the desire of the investors of the organization, who do not see prospects in the discipline and want to focus on supporting content creators. At this point, it is not known whether the current line-up will continue to playtogether.
Recall that Chaos has won regional tournaments IEM Beijing 2020 and DreamHack Masters Winter 2020 in the last month. At present, Anthony "vanity" of Malaspina's team stands in eighteenth place in the ranking of HLTV.org.
