WinFakt is no More
Written by   - Tuesday, 13 November 2012  (0 Comments )

Maybe a sign of times, but the fact is that WinFakt did shutdown operations as the funding from WinFakt.be has ceased to exist. The organisation was mostly known due to the Counter-Strike Finnish team that represented them back in 2011, being replaced by Björn "THREAT" Pers ex-Lions later on. Moving on to CS:GO once again with the Finns, they were about to make their debut in Dreamhack Winter, but things got complicated and the players are now teamless, looking for a sponsor willing to support them.

Going back to the former name "The Hawks", the players are now asking for 2500 Eur so they can attend the swedish lanparty that will take place in  Jönköping on November 22nd-25th. Here is The Hawks lineup and a statement from Joona "natu" Leppänen:

 

Aleksi "allu" Jalli

Niko "naSu" Kovanen

Joona "natu" Leppänen

Timo "reflex" Rintala

Jonas "ScurK" Finnilä

 

"This morning I got a message from Vincent Mast of Team WinFakt that they are going to be closing operations due to his lack of motivation and the main sponsor WinFakt.be shutting down the funding. This comes as a huge shock to our team as we have been spending hours in and out getting prepared for the biggest CS:GO tournament so far, DreamHack Winter 2012", Leppänen told HLTV.org.

"Signs of bad things to happen were in the air last week as promised things weren't covered and Mr. Mast himself wasn't available up to his normal standards. We were just told that due to the LoL teams tickets to Bucharest, their bank had issued a fraud investigation on the company Visa-card, which was delaying the process of booking our trip."

"We are in the process of contacting people from companies within Esports to salvage the situation, as we currently are looking at a 2500 euro budget that it would take to get us over to Jönköping at this point. We would appreciate it if our friends within the community would spread the word of this incredibly frustrating situation. We would also appreciate any tips in regards to hotels/hostels around the area with reasonable pricing. "

"The team will be known as "The Hawks!" once again and this wont hinder our drive to win. If anything, this is more a motivation to go out there and win the whole thing."
