Gamers2 sign ex-ESC
Time: 2015-02-11 19:00
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Gamers2 have announced that they have completed the signing of the former ESC Gaming CS:GO squad.

The Polish team announced earlier in the month that they had parted ways with ESC Gaming after receiving a better offer from another organisation, which, according to Paweł "innocent" Mocek, represented "a huge challenge" for the players.

The deal appeared to be dead in the water last week after the players were banned by Valve following a suspected involvement in a match-fixing case.

Just 24 hours later, however, the team's ban was revoked and they were invited back to the offline qualifier for ESL One Katowice, which will take place this weekend.

Polish team join Gamers2

The team have now received a massive boost ahead of the Polish event as they have been recruited by Spanish organisation Gamers2, founded by Carlos "Ocelote" Rodriguez, a well-known figure in the League of Legends scene.

"After looking for opportunities in the CS:GO scene for several months, trying to find the best fit for our club, we finally found the players that match our philosophy the most," Rodríguez said.

"During the time of this search, we had the chance to sign other top-tier teams, but it did not feel right, since our focus was on achieving long-term goals.

"When the match-fixing drama with the team came to light, we knew that these players were not guilty, so we decided to take action.

"Not thinking about what could happen afterwards and having only these guys’ careers as our focus, we spent day and night in talks with every company involved in this decision to prove that none of these players were EVER involved in any wrongdoing regarding bets throughout their careers.

"With the positive outcome and the amazing vibes these players have given us, we knew that this was the team we were looking for.

"It was the players’ intention to become full-time gamers, and we thought this was a great opportunity to make their dreams come true. We are eager to work alongside them."

Team captain innocent also commented on the news, saying:

"We are proud to announce that, from this day, we will represent Gamers2.

"We are really excited, because we always dreamed about the possibility of playing CS full-time and treating our passion as a job, too. Our motivation is sky high and we are ready to become an excellent team.

"Gamers2 is the best choice that we could have made. Even though they could have cut us off after our ban affair, they helped us a lot, and I think we would not have made it without their magnificent work.

"We would like to thank Gamers2 for trusting us and giving us the opportunity to attend every possible event and let us prove what we are capable of. 2015 is going to be a huge year for Counter-Strike, and we cannot wait to compete under Gamers2’s flag."

Gamers2 have been drawn in Group A in the ESL One Katowice offline qualifier and will take on North American side CLG in the first round of the tournament. The team's line-up is the following:

 Paweł "innocent" Mocek
 Grzegorz "SZPERO" Dziamałek
 Mikołaj "mouz" Karolewski
 Jacek "MINISE" Jeziak 
Karol "rallen" Rodowicz

is that a big org or?
2015-02-11 19:10:52
small org but ran by 1 ego with a bit of money that he once made from being a pubic figure in the lol scene (selling scarfs as he's known for wearing them) but his reputation is now ruined and everyone hates him but he still has money from probs investing in shares
2015-02-11 19:12:47
why i his rep ruined? if u dont wanna talk here just send me a pm :p
2015-02-11 19:15:00
he did some scummy things like not paying coaches and has failed to get his team into lcs even after a bunch of opportunities and he plays really bad in these opportunities but still wont step down because his ego is too big
2015-02-11 19:16:07
._. why is he still active in the esport scene then? can u just buy ur way back into it? :(
2015-02-11 19:17:28
Rofl clueless. Don't believe in every reddit circlejerk you read.
2015-02-11 22:04:42
he hired a coach for their LoL team, then he didn't pay him and during some confrontation he said that homosexuals are mentally challenged (the coach is homosexual)
2015-02-11 19:18:12
that pressure on players when homo coach is standing just behind them during matches

2015-02-11 23:24:36
pubic figure?
2015-02-11 19:17:00
I smell alot of hate here. Ocelote used to be the absolute number 1 LoL player, midlaner. He won millions only with prizemoney (LoL had the biggest prizepool ever, 5 million for a season finale, compared to the couple of bucks that CS:GO gives away in the majors to the #1).

On top of that he had the sickest sponsor contracts, he made video commercials for TV for his sponsors, on top of gaining 60.000EUR a month only by streaming. He is rich.

Then he started a company to sell merchandise which made him even more rich. He is basicly HotShotGG from CLG but 10x richer.
2015-02-11 19:27:31
haha, #1 lol player stop kidding yourself fanboy
2015-02-11 19:28:37
As someone not following LoL scene I gotta ask: who is (was in times of ocelote's prime) #1 then? Cuz i gotta admit i heard of ocelote before, being mentioned as #1.
2015-02-11 19:35:33
any korean rofl
here is ocelete at his peak getting dumped on

1) I'm not a fanboy of anyone, I'm too old for that shit and even when I was 10 years younger I never was a fanboy of no team or person.

2) When Ocelote was #1, the koreans didn't have LoL yet in their country.

You always talk so annoying and full of hate, seek some help. When Koreans finally had LoL, Ocelote was already past his peak.

Edit: I never even liked Ocelote, I hated his attitude. Maybe it's you that can't be judgemental, neutral because you are fan of someone else? Says more about you.

2015-02-12 00:36:13
Ocelotes popularity wasn't based on his skill, he was enough good to play good competitive lol, but most of his huuuge fanbase was earned due to one of the best streams, he was damn good streamer early lol, mainly s2. Entertainer persona.
2015-02-12 10:18:16
xpeke was better than oce in his prime. But his "prime" was in season 1 when LoL was small and not developed.. so not many good players.
2015-02-11 19:37:57
reginald from TSM and maybe xpeke from fnatic
koreans started domination from s2.
2015-02-11 20:01:30
xpeke didn't even play mid at that time.

The only time when Oce was top3 EU was in S2, around EU Regionals.
2015-02-11 23:29:44
He has never been the best midlaner and he hasnt even won a single offline tournament.

He isnt even close to hotshotgg, he isnt even the owner of the organisation(Ozone is)and all numbers he gave out were discredited by his coworkers. Yea, he is notorious liar.
2015-02-11 19:35:55
he was never an absolute #1 lol mid at any point in his career, not even by a long shot, alex ich/xpeke were leaps ahead of him during his prime

Because of the owner - Ocelote and his incidents, like the recent one - not paying the coach for the job. In general he is the most fake person you will see in esports.

What is wrong with him? I don't play LoL but I actually heard about him and I thought he's like one of the best players in that game, I might be wrong.
2015-02-11 21:34:33
He's very emotional. He was mid-laner for SK Gaming in Season 2 and 3 (I think).

He was raging a lot on his streams as well

2015-02-11 20:09:27
They are underdogs now. They lack of consistency and experience on lan as a team, but they can work on that.

Every single one of them can hit high scores on every map, there is no weakest link.

In my opinion they have big potential, if they wont f**k it up :)

"When the match-fixing drama with the team came to light, we knew that these players were not guilty, so we decided to take action."

This sounds like they took advantage of the drama to make the players sign. Does that mean they were about to sign with another org before the ban thing ?
2015-02-12 14:26:32
2015-02-12 14:47:29
Gamers2!? Who the fuck names their organisation that. Worst name of a company or organization or anything I have ever heard. You almost can't even pronounce that name. Gamers-two? Wow.
