Ptr parts ways with NRG’s CS:GO team

Peter “ptr” Gurney wrote Thursday on Twitter he will part ways with NRG‘s Counter-Strike team to become a free agent.

Ptr has been a part of NRG since January 2016 and a CS:GO pro since 2014. He was the longest tenured member of NRG and the lone holdover from the ex-Method team that was purchased by NRG ahead of qualifiers for last year’s MLG Columbus Major.

NRG has seen uneven results with its Counter-Strike team. NRG reached the playoffs of the ESL Pro League and won a couple of upset matches before being eliminated in the group stage. The team attended DreamHack Valencia and DreamHack Atlanta this month but finished 7th-8th in both.

As ptr leaves, it’s unsure where he will be headed, and who NRG will choose to fill the hole that ptr leaves behind, as the roster will now only feature four players instead of a full five-man roster needed to run a CS:GO team.

NRG’s most recent move was signing Allan “AnJ” Jensen to replace Derrick “LILMAN” Boyne. The rest of the roster includes Jacob “FugLy” Medina, Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte and Damian “DAPS” Steele.
