Another North American organization is looking to make their exit as Chaos Esports look to move away from Counter-Strike. This comes from a report by DBLTAP which states the organization is looking transfer their current players to other teams.
Should this come to fruition, Chaos would join a growing list of organizations that have stepped away from the North American scene since the recent changes to ESL Pro League, the introduction of FLASHPOINT, and the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Joshua “steel” Nissan, former in-game leader for Chaos recently departed the team to pursue a career in VALORANT where he’s been signed to 100 Thieves. During his time with the team they found their peak in terms of results as they made the semifinals at ESL One: Cologne 2020 North America as well as DreamHack Open Summer 2020 North America.
Since the addition of Edgar “MarKE” Maldonado things haven’t gone as smoothly with the team failing to qualift for IEM New York North America and finishing 5th in ESL Pro League Season 12.
The report states that this move wouldn’t be an indication of the organization as a whole leaving esports or shutting down.
