GamerLegion has released it’s in-game leader and CS:GO veteran Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans. In his statement, he noted “internal differences,” with individual players wanting a different direction.
"Big hard blow because as you can imagine, I put so much energy to first create the team from zero and then setting up the foundations in-game/out of the game," Ex6TenZ wrote. "But it is how it is!”
