Helsinki – August 7th – The Helsinki REDS announce the release of three players from the organization’s Overwatch roster. The REDS parts ways with Roope “Ruape” Kurkela, Ville “prettyWise” Mikkonen and Miika “BBR” Tekoniemi.
– Our Overwatch team has not made significant progress during the past months and results have not been what we aim for. For this reason we have decided to part ways with three players, said team manager Christer Kasurinen.
– This was a very difficult decision, since these guys have been with us from the start and we all have enjoyed working with each other. But for the Helsinki REDS to be successful and to meet our goals in esports, we need to make changes.
The REDS will make the additions to OW roster during the next weeks.
