Farewell: The Greek roster that shook the Boston Major has disbanded

posted by Malystryx.GDS,
Today on social media news broke that the Greek roster of gr Ad Finem has disbanded and as a result will no longer represent the organisation.

The roster will be forever remembered for THAT game
The Greek line-up made a name for their themselves playing as Ad Finem at the Boston Major at the end of 2016, finishing runners-up behind OG in the Grand Finals. In that very Grand Finals they were involved in one of the greatest games of the 2016, when they managed to fashion a victory out of what looked like certain defeat in game 3. The Greeks went on to lose the Grand Finals 3-1 but that did not matter, they won the crowd over by showing incredible resilience to still fight back even though they were 2-0 down.

On the 7th April this year, the roster was picked up by major esports organisation gr Ad Finem, but never really managed to replicate the success they had at the end of 2016. Regardless the players, in particular their captain gr Giorgos 'SsaSpartan' Giannakopoulos, became well-known in the international scene. Despite times of struggle the five players stuck through thick and thin, and more importantly through multiple roster locks.

The former Mousesports roster who have chosen to disband
gr Omar 'Madara' Dabachach
gr Dimitrios 'ThuG' Plivouris
gr Verros 'Maybe Next Time' Apostolos
gr Haris 'SkyLark' Zafiriou
gr Giorgos 'SsaSpartan' Giannakopoulos

It is currently unknown how many of the five players will continue to compete on the Pro Circuit but Thug, MNT, Skylark and Spartan, will be representing Greece at the WESG Global Finals in early 2018.
