- The 24-year-old player came into the organization in March of this year
- He replaced Tengis “sk0R” Batjargal but unfortunately never matched the previous player’s performance
- Hasteka consistently had the worst rating in TheMongolz during this year
Chinguun “hasteka” Bayarmaa leaves the TheMongolz following the organization’s failure to qualify for the CS:GO Asia Championships 2023.
TheMongolz and Hasteka Part Ways
Following a four-month stint with the Mongolian CS:GO organization Chinguun “hasteka” Bayarmaa has left the team. This is what TheMongolz announced earlier today, the decision to remove the player coming just three days after the roster was eliminated from Perfect World Arena Premier League Season 5. This failure resulted in the team missing out on a spot at the upcoming CS:GO Asia Championships.
Haseteka’s removal from the squad puts an end to his career with the team, which he joined back in March of this year. The 25-year-old player came to fill in the gap left by Tengis “sk0R” Batjargal, meaning he had big shoes to fill as sk0R was the team’s highest-rated player in the months leading up to the change.
Unfortunately, while the latter CS:GO pro joined TYLOO, the former simply could not perform just as well to be a complete replacement. Hasteka was by far the lowest-rated player for TheMongolz over the last three months as he only registered a 0.86 rating across all competitions. However, it should be noted that despite the negative personal rating, the 24-year-old rifler still helped his team qualify for the BLAST Paris Major, BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2023 Americas, and IEM Cologne’s group stage.
Hasteka’s rating has not always been this low. In fact, before joining TheMongolz earlier this year, he used to be quite the well-performing player in his home country’s professional CS:GO scene. During 2021 and 2022 he was part of Checkmate, with whom he won several tournaments, most notably Funspark ULTI 2021: Asia Season 3 and Funspark ULTI 2021: Asia Playoffs #2.
However, he could not replicate the same results once he joined TheMongolz. The team finished in 9th-12th place at the Intel Extreme Masters Rio 2023 and exited very early from the BLAST Paris Major 2023 in May. Of course, this should be viewed as a team-wide problem and the blame should not be put on a single person. Fortunately, not the entire 2023 was so bad for TheMongolz, as the team won the ESN National Championship 2023 back in July.
Currently, the organization has a month to find a replacement for hasteka and prepare for their next scheduled appearance at the BLAST Fall Showdown. There, TheMongolz will have to face the likes of Complexity and Imperial, so it is not going to be an easy time for the team. The organization’s roster currently looks like this:
- Garidmagnai “bLitz” Byambasuren
- Sodbayar “Techno” Munkhbold
- Usukhbayar “910” Banzragch
- Ayush “mzinho” Batbold
- Erdenedalai “maaRaa” Bayanbat (coach)
