ImPerium announced last night that they are parting ways with their MDL roster.
We have some news to share regarding our CSGO team.— ImPerium (@ImP_GG) November 3, 2020
Unfortunately, we will be parting ways with this roster. We thank them for their time and wish them the best of luck moving forward!
The news doesn't come as much of a surprise, as team founder and CEO Anton "Shadow" Chan left the team's ESEA roster the previous day.
ImPerium struggled in their rookie season in the division, only securing three wins, and with many of their losses being one-sided affairs where they failed to reach double digit rounds.
When contacted by Dust2.us, Carter "CarterJ" Richardson said that the team "have no clue about future plans until after the [MDL] Relegation tournament."
ex-ImPerium are now:
- Carter "CarterJ" Richardson
- Reece "Wilky" Wilkerson
- James "EllisoN" Ellison
- Ian "heretic" Carfora
- Toryn "cuze" Cartier
MDL Relegation will run from December 7-9th, and feature ex-ImPerium, ex-Recon 5, Vireo.pro, and Kinship. They will be joined by at least three teams from Advanced playoffs, which are set to begin tomorrow. It is speculated that the final spot will be granted to paiN.
