Sources close to London Conspiracy have confirmed for DotaBlast that the Dota 2 squad has left the British organization. Greg “Keyser Soze” Kallianiotis, Omar “Madara” Dabasas, Xaris “SkyLark” Zafiriou, and Giannis “SKANKS224” Theodoridis have decided to move forward together, without Giorgos “SsaSpartan” Giannokopoulos on the roster.
“The entire team has left the organization. They are waiting for The International dust to settle before they release an official announcement,” sources close to London Conspiracy told DotaBlast, citing “delayed payments” as one of the causes of dissatisfaction.
Earlier today, Giorgos “SsaSpartan” Giannokopoulos has announced his separation from the rest of the London Conspiracy squad, on his Facebook page:
“London Conspiracy has decided to continue without me in the roster. I would like to thank anyone who have supported and cheered me up and continue doing that after big wins and even bad loses. (…) I won’t stop trying to get to the top and achieve my goals. I think it’s crystal clear that I am not quitting.”
The Greek squad has been making quite some noise since their LAN tournament debut at StarLadder Season 12. They have since taken fourth place in the MLG Pro League, in Austin, Texas, where they defeated Evil Geniuses in a best-of-one tiebreaker to advance. The team also surprised fans in the TI5 European qualifiers, where they tied with Vega for the second place in their group.
