MVP Project, one of the few (but relatively well-known) professional Counter-Strike teams in South Korea, has disbanded, leaving parent company MVP with one remaining team.
Team MVP announced Sunday via Facebook it would disband MVP Project, citing some problems within the team.
“Although MVP Project has shown consistent performances despite a number of roster changes, there were many issues within the team,” the announcement reads. “The team has tried many potential solutions and worked hard to solve this issue, but there weren’t any visible effects of that effort, and after spending a long time talking with the players to gather their opinions on the matter, the team has decided to disband.”
MVP Project was perhaps one of the most successful Korean CS:GO teams and was active in the meager CS:GO scene in Asia. The team qualified for StarLadder Kiev in April, going up against more well-known teams such as Virtus.pro, Immortals, and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
The team has transitioned its support to MVP PK, which was formerly a professional Counter-Strike 1.6 org under the name project_kr that turned to CS:GO after the roster was acquired by MVP in June 2016. The coach for MVP Project, Ronald “Rambo” Kim, has also been transitioned to MVP PK, according to the announcement. MVP also recently disbanded one of its Overwatch teams, MVP Infinity.
The roster for MVP PK consists of Pyeon “termi” Seon-ho, Kang “solo” Keun-chul, Kim “glow” Min-soo, Jung “peri” Bum-gi, and Park “zeff” Min-seok.
