According to the release,
“Chrille has been with the team from the start with Epsilon, and has had a big part to play in the success that the team has had.
More than this, he has been an integral part of the smooth running of Epsilon’s CSGO activities over this time. With big wins in China at PGL & WCA, the team moved forward a lot under his guidance.”
Epsilon CEO, Greg Champagne had this to say about Chrille’s time with the team:
“Although the CSGO team wanted a fresh vision of tactics for themselves, this was an extremely difficult decision. Christian is a hardworking and genuine person, pumped up behind his team all the way. He brought a team from the unknown status, to one of the top teams in the world. This alone is not a small achievement. I’m sure that one day our paths will meet again!”
Chrille also commented on his period at Epsilon:
“I don’t even know where to start. I’ve been a part of the Epsi family over a year and it’s a time I will always remember. I had the privilege to coach Swedens top talents and players with tremendous experience. I’m convinced the team will manage to reach the Major soon and the players who left for new adventures will for sure raise the finest trophy soon. A special thanks to Greg, Samy our sponsors and all in Epsilon for all the support I have received from you. A new chapter begins for me now with new challenges and it’s something I look forward to extremely much. Keep your eyes open!”
The organization will begin searching for a new coach immediately.
