SINNERS announced Zero’s decision to leave the active roster, bringing an end to his seven-month stay with the team. He will be replaced in the upcoming open qualifier for ESL Challenger Melbourne by SINNERS Academy’s outex.
In July, Zero transferred from GamerLegion to SINNERS in order to fill the gap created by NEOFRAG’s departure for OG. In order to complete their roster, the group looked into AJTT and manguss, but ultimately had to choose the 24-year-old owing to the “incomprehensible pricing of the other parties”.
The 24-year-old contributed to the Czech team’s success in a few regional competitions, including the Sazka eCUP Autumn 2022 and the Tipsport Czech Championship 2022, but the group underperformed in international competitions. In their final weeks with the team, the rifler finished 17th to 20th in the European Development Championship 7 and narrowly missed qualifying for the IEM Rio 2023 closed qualifier after finishing 3rd to 4th behind HONORIS, VOYVODA, and 9INE.
Outex, dreez, FABULOUSSS, B0R0, and fino all joined the SINNERS Academy project in August. Since their signing, the Czech-Slovak combination has been steadily moving up the ESEA ladder; they are presently ranked 24th in the ESEA Main Central Division, however they have yet to have a game recorded for HLTV.
In other developments, the BLUEJAYS North Macedonian team has disbanded due to conflicts between the group and the company. In addition, the players will go their separate ways rather than remaining together as a result of their poor performances in the first two months of 2023.
[CSGO] Today, we bid farewell to our beloved CSGO team. We want to express our sincerest gratitude for all the hard work, dedication, and passion they have poured into representing our organization over the years. We wish them all the best in their future! #feelblue #CSGO pic.twitter.com/ZOtP8cXgol

After a year on the verge of cracking the top 30 and losing in-game captain Kyxsan to Apeks, the team folded. Late in 2022, when veteran “NENO” and rookie “xicoz” joined, stYleEeZ was also fired. However, the club was unable to recapture their prior form.
Prior to the departure of stYleEeZ and the loss of kyxsan, BLUEJAYS won the minor IeSF 2023 World Championship on LAN by defeating IHC in the championship game. Nonetheless, they frequently failed at the very last hurdle, such as when they finished second at the 42nd season of the ESL Challenger League or lost in the online event playoffs after winning the IEM Road to Rio 2022 Europe RMR Replacement Play-In. The club eventually disbanded as a result of the losses that began to pile up with the new roster at the turn of the year and during the group stages.
Top player CacaNito, who was on ENCE’s shortlist to replace Spinx when he left in 2022, will be seen competing in the ESL Pro League’s Group D. The aforementioned ENCE, who will make their new signing NertZ debut at the event in Malta, will be his North American team’s first opponent. Meanwhile, for the first time since 2021, Coach Cr0n0s, who has been on the journey with his team from the start, will also test the free agent waters.
