Team Spirit accused forZe of trying to poach players

Team Spirit has made an official statement accusing the forZe’s management of poaching players. According to the press release, forZe’s representatives made an offer to unnamed members of Team Spirit to join their club without informing the organization of the latter.

In the past few hours, some members of our CS:GO team have received offers to join ForZe. Regretfully ForZe, who publicly stated their commitment to principles of ethics and honesty in relations between esports clubs, allowed their staff to directly contact players and coaches of other team, without informing their management.

By giving publicity to today's incidents, we very much hope to hold our colleagues to their commitments, especially since it was impossible to do so privately.

It should be reminded that the current Team Spirit roster features Viktor "somedieyoung" Orudzhev, Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov, Nikolay "mir" Bityukov, Boris "magixx" Vorobiev and Abdul "degster" Gasanov. The team is coached by Nikolay "Certus" Poluyanov.

Let us add that following the results of the recent RMR tournament IEM Fall 2021 CIS, Team Spirit earned the required number of RMR-points to book a PGL Major Stockholm 2021 slot.
