GODSENT target emi as potential replacement for kRYSTAL
The German in-game leader's days in the team appear to be numbered as they are currently looking for other options.
Kevin "?kRYSTAL?" Amend could be on his way out of GODSENT, HLTV.org has learned. The international team have already started looking for options to replace the German player, with former c0ntact member Luka "?emi?" Vukovi? being tested at the moment.
kRYSTAL has been a part of GODSENT for exactly a year following the Swedish organisation's signing of SMASH's roster in November 2019. He has received heavy criticism for his performances this year, in which he is yet to finish a tournament with above-average numbers.
emi has been without a team since August, when he stepped down from c0ntact in order to make way for Marco "?Snappi?" Pfeiffer. Two months later, he announced that he had been released from his contract with the North American organisation and that he was looking to take up a leadership role in a new team.
The past few weeks have been filled with stories about GODSENT and what could happen with their CS:GO team. DBLTAP first reported that GODSENT were looking to transfer their entire roster, with HLTV.org then revealing that the Swedish organisation was already in advanced talks with FunPlus Phoenix.
Last week, another DBLTAP report suggested that ENCE were looking at Jesse "?zehN?" Linjala to replace Jani "?Aerial?" Jussila. However, the Finnish organisation's interest in the GODSENT rifler appears to have cooled following the signing of Joonas "?doto?" Forss from HAVU.
GODSENT were eliminated from LOOT.BET Season 8 on Wednesday by Espada and will return to action in three weeks' time, in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, from November 24 to 29. Later in the month, they will also compete in DreamHack Masters Winter, which will run between November 30 and December 6.
kRYSTAL declined to comment on this report when contacted by HLTV.org.
