Less than 24 hours after announcing the signing of Rugratz, Moscow Five has had to part ways with the roster due to Erik "penny" Penny being unable to sign a contract with the organization after not receiving parental consent.
Regarding Moscow Five:— erik (@pennycsgo) November 18, 2019
In his TwitLonger, penny states that he originally went behind his parents backs to sign the contract, but once they realized what the contract entailed they refused to give their consent, reasoning that it would interfere with his studies. Interestingly, penny was seemingly able to play under Divine with no problems, although it is unknown if he was under contract like the rest of the roster.
This sudden revelation comes as a big blow for both parties as Rugratz have been looking to find a new organization since parting ways with Divine, while Moscow Five looked to return to the game for the first time since 2015.
Rugratz are once more:
- Joshua "Hunter" Madore
- Alex "zander" Diaz
- Erik "penny" Penny
- Daniel "roca" Gustaferri
- Nathan "leaf" Orf
- Corey "flashstep" Parks (Coach)
Unfortunate what happened with bul and moscowfive but ultimately it's his parents decision and I'm glad he'll be at least able to play at lan and the next season— Nathan (@leaf_cs) November 18, 2019
