Premier South Korean CS:GO team MVP PK is two players short, effective Wednesday. MVP announced on Twitter that in-game leader Kang “solo” Keun-chul and rifler Kim “glow” Min-soo have decided to leave the team and enter free agency.
Glow and Solo go way back and have been teammates in multiple organizations, going back to CS 1.6 days. Between 2009 and 2011, they represented WeMade FOX, which later became Project_kr and then redCode.
After short stint with the latter, Solo and Glow went inactive and returned in CS:GO in 2016, becoming founding members of MVP PK. After lacking results in their first two years, MVP PK finally started racking accolades domestically, winning the likes of CS:GO Asia Summit, ZOTAC CUP Masters Asia and eXTREMESLAND ZOWIE Asia. MVP PK even placed high in WESG 2017 Grand Finals, finished top 8 and losing to eventual champions Fnatic.
With Solo and Glow gone, only one of MVP PK’s founding members remains: Park “zeff” Min-seok. Where the two veterans will go is unknown so far, but if they decide to keep it domestic, GOSU would be a good place to go, currently led by former MVP PK teammate Han-seong “HSK” Kim.
