Team Singularity Team Singularity Inactive have decided to part ways with the entirety of their Russian roster, a squad they have maintained since October of last year when they signed FishkaVTom FishkaVTom Inactive .
The current core was formed in March when the team replaced Nikita "trexx" Cherednichenko with the more experienced Dmitriy "Dimaoneshot" Bandurka. The roster had to quickly enter into matches, narrowly qualifying to their Regional Masters in Stage 1 over Vladyslav "arch" Svistov's Deja Vu Deja Vu Europe Rank #98 . In the Masters event they started out strong with a sweep over CrowСrowd CrowСrowd Inactive but, after being stomped by Gambit Esports Gambit Esports Europe Rank #1 , they couldn't provide a repeat result against the Crows which ended their run in groups.
This started their run of many smaller regional tournaments, which led up to the 3rd Stage of VCT, where they quickly made it through into the Challengers 1 Main Event.
With Aleksey "slk" Lynksov joining as coach, the Russians began their Main Event journey but quickly found themselves in the lower bracket, after Gambit swept the roster, and after an extremely close series against GMT eSports GMT eSports Europe Rank #21 they fell to forZe forZe Europe Rank #10 , leaving Singularity to regroup for Challengers 2.
The only way for the roster to get to the EMEA Playoffs was to win the next event, and so they opted for a change in leadership, with Aleksandr "hvoya" Eremin coming in and taking Denis "Gray" Daniljuk's slot. They started the second Challengers in great form, beating tyeasy tyeasy Europe Rank #0 before sweeping One Breath Gaming One Breath Gaming Inactive . However, a loss to forZe in the upper final forced them into the lower bracket, where they were swept by One Breath Gaming 0-3 in the repeat encounter.
With this result, the squad haven't been able to accumulate enough circuit points to qualify for the EMEA LCQ, leading Singularity to part with the roster.
Dimaoneshot revealed on Twitter that the project will be sticking together and are open to organizational inquiries.
