It's probably been brought up already, but this is what it says in Team Chman's profile:
Bad news :,(
teamcHmAn a explosé en vol en juin 2004
la "societe" teamchman n'existe plus
or, according to Google translate:
Teamchman exploded in flight in June 2004
the "company" Teamchman no longer exists
Rass however was released on 29/06/07, was the card released posthumously? I'm curious.
Urban rivals was beta testing as clint fighting (i think) in 2000
i think they had those cards and team chman made alot
then the illustrator died and the organization dissapeared
guess when they officially released it the put out the cards one by one and then they used those illustrations?
I believe it just means that they "blew up" at their highest point. No real deaths involved.
Well Team Chman's classic artwork has now been replaced with my favourite artist and many others too, Quirkilicious. He replaces timelessness with such a fresh, beautiful artwork that I can't help but buy every card he releases ;D
