SK Gaming have bolstered their United States-based team with the addition of three new players.
The move comes shortly after Fear Factor, who most recently lost Sean "sgares" Gares, decided to dissolve as a team and go their separate ways.
With Fear Factor's disbandment, SK Gaming have picked up Nazar "steno" Vynnytsky and Paul "pauLy" Guerboyan, while at the same time acquired Anthony "djibouti" Manosca from iDemise.
Alice "ali" Lew told the team's homepage the major change is a result of their "sub-par performance" last season, and that this change will be for the better.
"After a sub-par performance last season, we have decided to make major changes with the roster to ensure that we will be a competitive team next season in Invite [...] Just knowing that we are all on the same page with the same goals in mind has jump started our motivation"
The roster revamp will exclude Ben "ben" Hui, Ryan "NineSpot" Bell and Tyler "willsoN" Willson from further involvement, whom were all a part of the team since the start.
Representing SK Gaming in the United States are:
Alice "ali" Lew
Joe "perez" Perez
Nazar "steno" Vynnytsky
Paul "pauLy" Guerboyan
Anthony "djibouti" Manosca
The team have set their sights at doing well in the upcoming ESEA Invite season and competing in the nation's remaining World Cyber Games qualifiers.
SK going in the mix might stir things up abit if they really have alot to offer these american players, and if that makes them practice more. then again, this line-up lacks an insane awper so I can see why he sais they wont have anything on EG.
without someone like adrenaline, sgares, evolution or ofcourse her0 they lack `green firepower`

Also in internet it has another meaning.For example:If I would create a thread "AWP LEGENDS" you can say "BAYAN SUKA" because this thread is already created.
and no, I don't know if SK have payed fnatic or anything but since there havent been any news I guess they havent
Believe it or not, this isn't the first she's played in a lineup with guys that were 5x better than her. She was featured in a mugNmouse pug that played in CPL Winter 2005. Needless to say, she and the rest of that team took a quick 2 and out and were eliminated in a jiffy.
I still remembered when I played her and her ladies in a CAL-M match. For all the bitching and talking that was spewed out of their mouths, they certainly couldn't back it up with their play.
And this is Irukandji so don't think I'm biased towards SK.us, I just think people like you are the reason CS in the US is a joke - you insult and demean players with made-up stats and hand-selected matches in hopes of making yourself look good when in reality you're simply jealous of the opportunity they're getting.
This is how females in CS breaks down. They are NOT physically gifted at cs (cannot make the proper quick in-game decisions, bad reflexes, bad aim); if anything, they are FAR WORSE on average then a male (observation). What they are good at is soaking up attention from guys online that they would normally be deprived of in the real world. they generally LOVE the attention that a bunch of socially-retarded gamers give them no matter how much they will try to act otherwise.
All girls love attention, but when you add a girl who plays CS, you get the perfect storm of the attention lovingness of a girl with the social-awkwardness of someone who plays cs.
As a result, Many guys will defend these female CS players to the grave in some odd attempt to get in their good grace and hope for some potential foreplay andthensome.
The crowd of NORMAL people who can socially interact with others flawlesly see these nerdy guys defend these nerdy girls and it is a complete joke. If you talk to NORMAL girls regularly it is painfully obvious how these attention starved weird CS girls act. If you do not interact with females at all, then you are most likely on the worshiping their every movement and action. There is a rift in the community, the "nerdy" and the "normal" (for lack of a better term). Obviously this isnt kindergarden and I'm not trying to namecall but I'm trying to paint a picture in ppls heads and im sure MOST of you know EXACTLY what im talking about.
This is years of observation of the CS scene, and by the looks of your post it is still around. u know why the CS scene is a joke? the guys on the top cannot handle business when it comes time. Thats YOU BRO.

let's just look at ali for a sec. she's been on a top internationally competing team for years. SK girls was arguably the best female CS team of all time. she can obviously hold her own ingame, stay focused and confident at big events, and at the very least can fill a very strong supporting player role for the team. i honestly think she's gonna be more valuable than most of the free agent options in the US invite league. let's wait and see.
oh and kinh.. youre
2) way too angry over a girl playing your video game
3) not going to find a girl worth anything that would give you the time of day with that attidude. it actually makes sense why youre so pissed at this chick.
if you can't get an e-girl to at least add you to her friends list, what are you going to do in the irl?
shes more or less the reason SK currently has a US team i mean they have sponsored her in SK.female for years now.. she has those ties with SK

some scenes are so crazy you have 3 or 5 teams who could do a lot.
and a bit weaker but in the national scene has good matches and we can see some talent, (france, brazil, china, finland, etc)

sorry if im on his dick like yellow on mustard right now, but hes just all around a solid player, and if SK US gets any overseas invitations.. people are going to start seeing that.
once this team gets fully involved, ali will probably go. all these players left top invite teams to join this squad, so i'm interested to see how it goes for them.
i was quite impressed with him when he played esea-i s7 lan finals.. i think thats what it was... before he joined backfire..
ali is the best female player!
remember like 2 yeards ago @ DH, she pwned everyone @ aim-map even swe professionals
aZn = never last on a serious team for a extended period of time
perez = who cares hes not good
NineSpot = like almost 30 years old give the game up old man.
either way SK line up fails and with the players above they still fail.

1.) once a team gets sponsored/gets funding to travel...its a whole different story. Teams try harder and are willing to put in time to practice and compete.
2.) The reason the US scene is behind right now isnt because were "bad", its just like the rest of the world....we have low funding, few tournaments, few sponsors which in return leads to mediocre play attitudes and frequent roster changes. See #1
3.) The number of competitive and potential good teams in the US is growing. We have EG, UMX.US who have their own gaming house in cali, SK.US, not to mention iDemise with XP3 and eMg who just picked up some new solid players including meth0d from old 3D.
Please....dont just post things unless you know what ur talking bout. Making us americans look bad.
