It is mainly because of this that SK Gaming has decided to release the three remaining members of the SK.HoN line-up, consisting of:
Nick 'Testie' Perentesis
Mike 'CarDinaL' Smith
Ioannis 'Fogged' Loucas
SK Gaming would like to wish all of them the best of luck in the future and thank them for their accomplishments under the [SK] tag.
This, however, is certainly not the end of the SK Gaming Heroes of Newerth division. We are happy to announce the players that previously played under the Evil Geniuses tag, as the new SK.HoN team.
SK Gaming Heroes of Newerth roster:
Orie 'YoDa' Guo
Brendan 'se`busca' Taveirne
Allen 'FujiApples' Tu
Steven 'Korok' Ashworth
Robert 'Bdiz' Tinnes
Andrew 'Riser_' Bronze
SK Gaming's player manager Timothy 'Merusame' Ellersiek released a statement:
What SK Gaming is seeking though is a stable roster that can exist over a very long period of time. The reason behind this is that we are willing to send the team to Europe for larger events, for example Dreamhack Winter in November. I wanted to thank all of our former members, especially Testie and Fogged for always being a vital part of the lineup but also thanks to Cardinal and Tralfamadore. At the same time I would like to welcome our new HoN roster, which until now, has played under the American Evil Geniuses flag. Robert 'Bdiz' Tinnes, who I personally hold in high regard, as well as Steven 'Korok' Ashworth are returning home so to speak! We are looking forward to see your first matches for SK!"
Orie 'YoDa' Guo of new SK.HoN said:
Considering the only purpose we would even have to sign with a sponsor is to go to LAN events, this was unacceptable. We've now worked out a deal with SK that is more appropriate for HoN, and look forward to being able to proudly represent SK at any big LAN events that S2 Games or any other organization happens to host for the duration of our cooperation."
