The Chinese CS:GO team “Team Aster” dissolves, citing poor results
Established in 2018, Team Aster has struggled to outperform itself over the two years of its existence. The team has only reached 1st place once in 2019 during the Nantong Silk Road Esports Invitational, a C-Tier competition. From this competition, Team Aster won $4,288.29. The team has a total winnings of $5,850.
After its victory during the Nantong Silk Road Esports Invitational 2019, Team Aster failed to reach 4th place in any of its competitions until the Next PRO Season 1 after failing to defeat JiJieHao 1-2.
It is, therefore, safe to believe that the Team Aster release of its players is due to its poor results over the years. You can view the team’s entire tournament performance here.
