According to a report by TomorrowLAN, Tsog “Tsogoo” Mashbat and Bold “ncl” Batsuh have parted ways with The Black Company.
The news comes just a little over one week after Mazaalai got attached with their new organization, The Black Company. Up until now, the team still took part in the FunSpark Rivals Pre-Season Group C. It is known that the Mongolian team had already filled the void by signing two of Aim Gaming players, Munkhbilguun “pwnz” Ihagvasuren and Azbayar “senzu” Munkhbold. The new duo have been playing since the first match of the group resulted on a 2-0 loss to NG Esports (Mirage 3-16, Inferno 6-16)

While with Mazaalai, the duo helped the team to reach runner-up place at the Huya DarkHorse League Season 6, HuyaTV Sharpshooter Cup Season 1, and won a handful of regional events in the last two years, most notably the ESL One Rio 2020 – East Asian Closed Qualifier, and IEM World Championship – Asian Open Qualifier.
Tsogoo and ncl departure will leave The Black Company without their core member from 2019. Tsogoo was the only member left from the original Mazaalai roster. Ncl was also the first generation of Mazaalai but parted ways with the team early this year to join AUGUST and followed by his arrival to TIGER where he won a handful of events. Rejoined Mazaalai in October, ncl ended his tenure with the core lineup of Mazaalai after only two months period.
The reason for their departure remains unknown. Although the duo hasn’t revealed their next team, they reportedly will take a part in the new project around The Mongolz, according to TomorrowLAN. It is a possible scenario considering the two players have joined The Mongolz for more than four years in 2015 to 2018. Some of the highest achievement they won with the legendary organization including ROG Masters Asia 2016, and IEM Taipei 2016.

- 🇲🇳 Yalalt “yAmi” Oyunbileg
- 🇲🇳 Telmen “Magnumz” Khurelkhuu
