Could koosta be taking his rifling and vaping talents elsewhere?

Kenneth "koosta" Suen took to Twitter late last night to announce that he is now a free agent.

A follow-up tweet in response to Pujan "FNS" Mehta further clarified that the player is "no longer legally bound to a contract." When contacted by, koosta said his "contract expired, I don’t want to go into more detail at this time." It is not known if he is in ongoing talks with the Ghost organization at this time.

WARDELL re-signs with Ghost on a multi-year deal

The time of the communication raises further questions, as it comes almost exactly a year after koosta, Josh "steel" Nissan and coach James "JamezIRL" Macaulay joined the organization. It is not currently known if the two are in a similar situation to koosta. Sniper Matthew "WARDELL" Yu was inked to a three-year deal by the organization back in November of last year.

Over the past year, the trio have been integral to a reversal of fortunes for the organization, having qualified for several international LANs. Most recently, the team fell just short of reaching the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals. Notably, the team did not participate in Majors or ECS during this period, due to steel's matchfixing ban.

Ghost confirm Torqued core addition

UPDATE: Both steel and JamezIRL have confirmed to that their initial contracts with Ghost have expired, and they have not yet been offered new ones. As JamezIRL elegantly put it:

Our contracts are done as of today and there just hasn’t been a definitive answer as to what’s going to happen. Put simply, since i haven’t been offered a new contract, I’m technically a free agent. Not that we’ve been let go—yet.

As of now, the following players are currently tied to Ghost:

  • ca Matthew "WARDELL" Yu
  • us Jason "neptune" Tran
  • us Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir

The team are not currently slated for any upcoming events.
