Alliance co-owner Jonathan Loda Berg commented on the 5men's decision to disband the roster during the EPIC League Season. In a tweet, he noted that other teams would not turn down the chance to show themselves at the tournament.
"Disappointong to see 5men disband in the middle of Epic League. Feels like another team would have died for this chance.”
The coach of ViKin.gg, ImmortalFaith noted that it is really difficult to find an opportunity to play in a major tournament. In his opinion, the 5men should have finished the groups before disbanding.
"Agreed. Many teams are looking for opportunities to play but they don't get them, if you sign up for something, finish it through. "
5men announced the breakup of the line-up on November 18, after the start of EPIC League Season 2. The team received technical defeats in all matches of the second division.
