Team Envy Place CS:GO Roster On The Transfer Market

According to reports, Team Envy's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) roster has collapsed and will all be placed on the transfer list as the org look to remove themselves from the scene. 

After participating in just one tournament in four months, the roster that holds Noah "⁠Nifty⁠" Francis as the epicentre will all go their separate ways. Their 7th-8th placed finish at Flashpoint Season 2 awarded them $15,000 in prize money, their only income of the year through events. Envy as a whole has not won a single event since 2017 at DreamHack Atlanta, despite one being one of the best teams in the world. 

The decision to purge the roster comes just days after Mike "Hastr0" Rufail, Co-Owner of the Dallas-based organisation, took to Twitter to brandish the side as nothing but a burning hole in his wallet. In a heated exchange with renowned journalist Jared "DeKay" Lewis, Hasr0 stated "operating almost any CS team is lighting money on fire right now. There are no underlying assets that support the spend where top player salaries are. I’m sure you could run a fantastic team if you had unlimited cash, but what happens when you can’t cover your cost?"

The answer is to seemingly pull your side out and leave the scene entirely.

Hastr0 and Envy were put under pressure from DeKay who suggested that whilst the current roster may have been too expensive, other players such as free agents Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, Timothy “autimatic” Ta, and Miikka "suNny" Kemppi, who are all looking to form a team together on a budget salary.

The organisation previously stated that "we have reserved a larger budget than the previous 3 years for our CS:GO team at Envy in 2021. We have a lot of faith that our current roster is going to do well". The message that dates back just three months has now taken a full 180 spin.

However, this may not be the end for Envy in CS:GO. Hastr0 himself added a final message just 72 hours ago, tweeting "All of us at Envy love CS, and we have a legacy there. We only want to be part of the solution".

Should they return soon, let's hope that there will be more positivity since Envy's untimely downfall.
