Alexandru “ComeWithMe” Crăciunescu has left Kaipi, after the team’s most recent flop – the failure to advance into The International 6 Regional Qualifiers.
ComeWithMe has broken the news on Twitter, stating that he might explain the situation more thoroughly, in a couple of days. The Romanian player had been on this current iteration of Kaipi, on and off, since September 2015.
So i'm not playing with KP anymore, I might make a longer post about it explaining in depth when I get home tomorrow or the day after, sry!

Kaipi’s sinuous 2015-2016 season
At the end of August, after The International 5, Armand “bOne7” Pittner put together a mix with Asuna, Bufni, Beesa, and Kikoni. They went by the name of Kaipi.
Less than a month later, Alexandru “Comewithme” Crăciunescu and Antonio “canceL^^” Mihai were brought on, after Kiril “Kikoni” Minkov and Salvador “Asuna” Khamis parted ways with the team.
Several roster changes later, Kaipi lost Ludwig “zai” Wåhlberg, to Evil Geniuses, on June 13th.
Amid speculation that they were about to sign former EG player Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling, Kaipi sought out ProDotA Gaming’s player Neta “thecoon” Shapira as zai’s replacement.
The Israeli player joined the rest of Kaipi’s lineup – bOne7, SingSing, ComeWithMe and SexyBamboe – on bootcamp in Bucharest, for the duration of The International 6 Open Qualifiers.
The team failed to advance into the Regional Qualifiers, after losing to Global Challengers during the first round of qualifiers (Round of 16) and E-Lab in the second one (Round of 32). Kaipi participated in several minor tournaments and qualifiers throughout the season, but were unable to clinch any noteworthy achievements, mainly due to their roster instability.
After ComeWithMe’s departure, it is still uncertain whether the rest of the players will stick together for the next season or not.
Kaipi current roster:
WehSing “SingSing” Yuen
Alaan “SexyBamboe” Faraj
Armand “bOne7” Pittner
Neta “thecoon” Shapira
