Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran has announced that he has stepped down from x6tence's active roster with immediate effect.
The news comes less than 48 hours before x6tence travel to Madrid for SocialNAT's GGCUP, where six teams from all over the country will be in attendance.
But even more surprising is the fact that the Spanish team will have to go back to the drawing board when everything seemed to be finally going their way.

Last month, x6tence clinched their first international CS:GO title in years as they came out on top of the Insomnia Gaming Festival 54, in Coventry, after beating fm-eSports 2-0 in the grand final. But not even the recent success has kept the roster together as longtime member Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran has parted ways with the team, citing personal issues as the reason for this decision.
"I leave x6tence over personal problems inside and outside the game," he wrote on Twitter.
"I would like to wish my ex-teammates the best after two years in which we had some unforgettable experiences.
"I would especially like to thank everyone that has supported me. I hope I will continue playing."
Meanwhile, x6tence revealed that Arturo "sukitRon" Gil, formerly of ASES and Outbreak, will act as a substitute at GGCUP, where they will face a tough challenge against Óscar "mixwell" Cañellas's team, who left Atlantis on Thursday.
x6tence are currently taking part in CEVO Season 7's professional division, in which they were held to a 1-1 draw by LGB eSports in the opening round of matches.
The Spanish team currently have:
Jonathan "MusambaN1" Torrent
Antonio "FlipiN" Rivas del Rey
David "Kairi" de Miguel
Juan "meisoN" Carlos Chacón
