Under februari gick Mirror samman med AndThenSome, och med sig tog ATS huvudsponsorn XLBet. Laget dykte inte upp på de danska KODE5-kvalen på grund av interna problem, och som en direkt följd av detta har XLBet valt att sluta stödja organisationen.
I samband med detta väljer även ATS och Mirror att gå skiljda vägar, något som även sägs härleda från de tidigare nämnda interna konflikterna. ATS-ägaren Lasse Anakin Hansen vidhåller emellertid att de hållit vad de lovat laget i form av betalda resor, hotell och liknande, men att det finns outbetalda löner.
"Yesterday XLBet announced that they had terminated their sponsorship with Mirror-Gaming and AndThenSome ApS; due to our CS team not participating in the Danish Kode5 qualifier, a decision I feel saddened by, but fully understand. XLBet have been with ATS since day one, and continued their sponsorship as Mirror and ATS merged together in early February. So a big thanks you to XLBet for their backing of the team.
As many of the people around the CS-world properly already have figured out, things have not been ideal in the organization lately, some of the deals that have been made with the players and ATS have not been fully obligated, which in the end derived our team departing with ATS and Mirror-Gaming.
Mirror-Gaming and AndThenSome ApS will also part ways and stop our current partnership.
I would like to use my energy and time in other projects and with the current situation in our organization and the consequences it has derived for me personally; I feel like, its time for a change for me.
Even though the announcement was made, not even 24 hours ago I have already gotten a handful of offers, so I will unquestionably continue in another place and I have also made my choice.
I can fully understand the players decision and I would like to thanks all people involved for a great time, from all the players to the management, especially MarcK whom I had some great time with and who turned out to be a great manager and a real asset for both the players and the organization.
Personally - I would also like to thanks Anakin for, a sadly short-termed, partnership. It has been a pleasure to spent time with him and getting a new approach on things, I have definitely learned a lot from our partnership, he is without doubt a great guy and a very committed soul and I wish him and Tore all the best of luck in the future." - Josef Olsen - Manager för Mirror
