Frost and Blaze Join CJ Entus!

posted by Zeltoni, 1 year ago
Recently, the gaming scene was surprised as Azubu announced the release of both LoL squads. Their new sponsor has finally been revealed! Frost and Blaze are to join CJ Entus.

The two top Korean teams kr Azubu Blaze and kr Azubu Frost have declared their departure from the Azubu organization. The reason for this is disagreements over the streaming hours Azubu.tv demanded which eventually led to Blaze and Frost's decision to leave. The contract expired on February the 4th and so they chose not to renew the contract. As a result of this they played their final matches for Azubu at the Hanyang University on February the 2nd in The Winter Champions Finals.
This means that Frost and Blaze, like other top teams before them like ru Gambit Gaming and eu Evil Geniuses, have to find a new organization. However, the unusual thing about this is that Frost and Blaze are sister teams, raising the question: will they find a new organization together, or will they each find a new organization and sever their previous ties? With their reputations, sponsors were lining up around the proverbial block to sign them. Finally, their new organization is official: CJ Entus will be their new sponsor. They will keep their old names, however we will see their logos changed to that of CJ Entus.


The new sponsors?

CJ Entus wasted no time, as they signed a contract with the two teams the day after their previous contract with Azubu expired. CJ Entus has signed contracts with both of the teams, which means that Frost and Blaze will keep their manager, coach, their names and they will still remain sister teams. CJ Entus does however have a little problem to deal with: they have to look for a new place for their old players, since Frost and Blaze will replace the current team. The coach of Frost and Blaze has commented:
"Frost and Blaze have been going to too many foreign tournaments thus exposing their strategies, that is why their winter final result was not good. Once the Six Man system is established we can avoid that problem." The old CJ Entus team will serve as a bench for Frost and Blaze to use players from if they so desire.


Achievements of the teams

Both team have a great past and they will for sure reach extensive plays and milestones in the upcoming season – but to this day Frost hold the gold of The Champions Summer, second places at The Champions Spring and the Season Two World Championships. They have just finished The Champions grand final, where they sadly lost to kr NaJin Sword. Their sister team is not behind in achievements and is known to the whole world as well. They boast first places at MLG Summer Arena, MLG Fall Championship and The Champions Spring as well as a 2nd place finish in the recent IEM Katowice.


Azubu.tv

The launch of the Azubu.tv is a streaming platform like Own3D.tv and Twitch.tv, and it is meant to be a rival to Twitch.tv. They have already secured exclusive broadcasting rights for top team us Counter Logic Gaming, coinciding with Azubu.tv opening a western office of their own in Santa Monica.

i read this this morning on reddit, and my face suddenly went from "derp" to "what the fuck i just read" when i read:

"they have to look for a new place for their old players, since Frost and Blaze will replace the current team...The old CJ Entus team will serve as a bench for Frost and Blaze to use players from if they so desire."

As the old CJ Entus team, i would just break with the team. Thats a major fuckover and mistreatment of the old roster, to bench a whole team, never heard of anything like it, ever, in the history of sport.

if you have chance to sponsor top 2-3 of korean scene, why should you waste your money on top-8 (or so)? And for ex-cj entus lineup-well, maybe some of you will be in top 2-3 korean team instead of top-8, remember reapered replacement with flame? Sure it has more future, then playing in top-8 team achieving nothing. Also practice in one gaming house with guys, who had tons of lan and international expirience will be useful for anyone.
