Any thoughts guys? I believe it's because ddd1ms got arrested for 'cyber crimes' they hope they can become a team again soon, once ddd1ms can fund them again.

Quite sad, they were one of the best teams out there.

Azubu will pick them up probably...

Or hey, even CLG. CLG.ru.

Now that would be weird.

From the post I read the team didn't disband, just stopped having to include "M5" in their name since they haven't been receiving sponsorship money for months.

Is BENQ still sponsoring them ?

Only the M5 sponsor is gone. The players are still together (as far as we know) and technically they don't need a sponsor anyway because they're already in the Championship series so they will be getting paid from that (and their other sponsors are still valid).

One of the reasons why they officially changed their names from M5 to M5 BenQ was because M5 was a sponsor in name only in the second half of the year. The M5 organization wasn't funding them and all their funding was coming from BenQ.

I expect they will become just BenQ, or some other name with BenQ in it, like "Gamers BenQ".

A similar situation happened to CLG.eu, where they left the CLG organization but are still a team with the same players (sponsored by Razer and others) so now their team is unofficially "Fries.eu" until they change it to an official name or just make it officia.

That would be hilarious, especially as CLG.eu left CLG.

CLG might want to get a good European team tied to their name just so that seeing CLG in a tournament ladder isn't such a joke
