Some weeks after MythiX, Team Infused TrackMania squad disbands aswell... The TrackMania Nations Forever squad has been a part of Infused since 2010 and led by Niels ''Nielos'' de Bruin for almost the whole last year.
Team Infused had continued to rise in recent months as one of the best teams in the scene, but the decision of disbanding comes after internal problems in the squad which made it difficult for them to continue on the same competitive level as before, said Infused's staff.
We don't know what these internal problems are, but something is sure, the last moves of Massa and Sky in the middle of the TmT season have probably played in this decision since they were two of Infused's best players.
Due to this decision, some former Infused players have moved to other teams for STC, summary of what we know :
- Massa => Team Dignitas
- Sky => Team Dignitas
- Poker => Team Acer
- Alex => Insight
- Zack => eXtensive
- Carti => eXtensive
- Germi => Funteam

"Today is a sad day. A sad day for us, but also a sad day for the Trackmania community. after alot doubting, discussing, and thinking, I have to accounce that Infused.Tm is going to shut down.
There are several reasons wich led to this to happen, wich I am not going to explain, but it is a mix of some internal things, and very unlucky things that happened to us. I am disappointed in some players in the community, but I am also satisfied with ( luckily alot more ) players in the community.
The Trackmania community is slinking, with team after team that depart. I really hope for a bright future in the Esports of Trackmania, but I think some changes need to be made, before that would be possible.
I am very proud to have had the chance to lead this team for almost a year now, and when I look back, I can be satisfied. We have had a great time, and we feel like a family together. I want to thank my team, Team Infused, for this wonderful time, and supporting us for over 2.5 year.
Infused was one of the longest standing teams in the Trackmania scene, and I will always look back on this great team proudly, together with my former-teammates. I also want to thank every player that has ever been in this team, for making it so succesfull as it was. Now it is time to move on. Move to another team, or move to inactivity, due to school, work, etc.
I wish all the players in my team the best luck on their next move in this game, and let the Trackmania community rise up like never before!
Thanks for everything!"
