A new British team has been created under the name bitcoins, featuring five ex-CS:Source players.
Since Mad Catz Birmingham came to an end, there has been a great buzz in the upper echelon of the UK CS:GO scene, with fm-eSports TOXiC deciding to focus on a local roster, Anexis picking up George "hudzG" Hoskins from Dignitas and 4Kings unveiling their own team and a gaming house.
A new team have now seen the light of day, and much of their hopes will rely on the shoulders of Richard "ritch" Gibbs and Erik "HaZ" Holm, who played in the CGS for London Mint and Stockholm Magnetik, respectively.
Joining up with them will be George "ZED" Bear, who was part of the Reason Gaming side who beat Dignitas and held fnatic to a draw in Birmingham.
The last two players are Jake "batham" Batham and Jacob "mini" Harris, and even though they are relatively unknown outside of the UK, they made a name for themselves during their time in LiNK, where they played alongside names such as Luke "KritikaL" Green and Phil "Whindanski" Nicholas.
"Today is the day we announce our CS:GO team, after four of us playing together for a long while now and searching for a 5th - we have found that in ZED," Gibbs told HLTV.org.
"As some people from the Source scene will know before I quit CS:S I was playing alongside mini and batham and it was really enjoyable for me so it was a no-brainer that I'd play with them again in CS:GO and I gave my great mate HaZ a shout and asked if he was interested in trying out CS:GO and luckily for us he said yes.
"For a few weeks we played with different people and we were struggling to find the 'perfect' fit for our team until last week ZED came along and showed some interest.
"To be honest I have fairly high expectations already with this team, because of the general attitude of the players in the team. We have shown some great chemistry, which is promising, and we're having fun, which was the main purpose of this team for long term success, but it is very clear to see it can and will be so much more than just fun.
"ZED has fit in perfectly with the team and he shares a similar attitude as the rest of us - if we work hard we can get some nice results together.
"We are currently looking for an organisation that we can represent and that can take us to events. We have signed up for ESEA Intermediate, but we are on the waiting list, and we want to participate in EMS. Obviously, our main focus will be on LAN events."

Richard "ritch" Gibbs
Erik "HaZ" Holm
George "ZED" Bear
Jake "batham" Batham
Jacob "mini" Harris

HaZ and ritch were sick at source. They'll have to pick up where they left off because let's face it, they'll have to share the duty of carrying you.
The 2 LANs they attended they were 15-11 v curse and 14-7 fnatic flopped and didn't close any of them out just unlucky the way things happen.
Carrying who? ZED? Look up stats from every LAN he's been 2 and i'll see if you post that again.

Secondly, every time I've had the severe displeasure of spectating your boyfriend ZED here, he has displayed all the properties of a dribbling cunt. Kinda like what you're doing right now.
"Look up stats from every LAN he's been 2 and i'll see if you post that again."
Rofl. Like I said, I've had great misfortune of watching him play in the past. He's fucking awful. Come at me.
Ok give me some examples of this then? It's very easy to just say that he's bad you've obviously got a issue with him for no reason.. Beaten you at a few lans is it :(?
Awful? Haha you have issues.. Fucking retard.
You labeling me and categorizing criticism based purely on personal opinions as "issues" is far and away the most educationally subnormal thing I've read on this website. AND THAT MEANS SOMETHING.

I'm waiting for them examples :)
How the fuck can an opinion such as the aforementioned be considered as giving "it"?
And examples of what you absolute cretin? You want me to give you specific ticks and link you demos you freak?
I have spectated him. I have formed an opinion. I have stated it. You have had a severe outflow of blood from your vagina. End it there.

From .PhP's Reason line-up of the past to this glory. Well you've proved me wrong. They were fucking sick. Why the FUCK did they ever split up? They ALMOST BEAT fnatic this one time and that too on fnatic's WORST day (they were under-performing spectacularly, that was clear for everyone to see). FUUUUUUUCK!
