All five players have departed paiN X, and CCnC already has a new team
The beginning of this DPC season 2018-19 saw a slew of new teams coming in, and many more disbanding. paiN X was one of the new teams, which was made up of veteran players CCnc and 4dr. The others were Liposa, FLee and Ritsu.
pain X proved to be quite promising, even though three of their five players were quite new to the international stage. They qualified for the Kuala Lumpur Major and place 9th-12th, ahead of paiN Gaming, which placed 17th-18th.
And today, paiN announced that all five players have left the paiN X squad. But a tweet by 4dr says that he got kicked from paiN X.
In the original announcement, which is in Portugese, paiN X said that "4dr, Lelis, Ritsu, Flee and CCnC set out for a new challenge without paiN." They also said that this wasn’t the end of paiN X, and the organization was already scouting for new players for the team.
On the other hand, CCnC has already formed a new team with paiN X members, except for 4dr. His place will be taken by the Amercian Dota 2 player Kartik "Kitrak" Rathi. The new team, for now, is aptly called ex-paiN X.
Kitrak is a support player who previously was the support of British team Wind and Rain before joining CCnC’s team. There he also played alongside Ritsu and Forev. He also played with OpTic on the team that won the Midas Mode as a stand-in for Misery.
The announcement of the roster was made by CCnC on his Twitter account. He also said that the team was currently looking for sponsors.
The ex-paiN X roster is:
