Giants announce return
By: Nix0n
Time: 2012-04-02 17:15
Game: Counter-Strike 1.6

Giants have announced their return to activity with a newly-built Spanish roster featuring former x6tence players.

Last time Giants were around was back in 2009 when they housed a Swedish team, which fell apart shortly before the Intel Extreme Masters season three finals in March that year.


The Spanish organization will now once again feature a Counter-Strike 1.6 division, this time housing a Spanish team. The reopening of the division is led by Borja "GuMmY" Gonzalez, who last year got removed from x6tence to make space for Aitor "milicua" Fernández.


Gonzalez has brought a total of four former x6tence members to Giants, José "YuRk0" Aspas and Carlos "xhiroz" Puente, who both went inactive towards the end of 2011, as well as Christopher "power" Rodriguez and Yzan "rai" Cobacho.


New Giants team is led by GuMmY

Giants now have:

Borja "GuMmY" Gonzalez
José "YuRk0" Aspas
Carlos "xhiroz" Puente
Yzan "rai" Cobacho
Christopher "power" Rodriguez

There are currently no reports to where the team plans on going in near future in terms of events and online leagues, a possibility could be xfunction Fraglider Cup next month in Porto, Portugal.

omg no! I rlly like him, for me hes best España player after flipin and xhiroz :(
2012-04-02 22:01:28
Well, in my opinion MusambaN1 can't be fully compared with xhiroz and FlipiN, as his main role was IGL.

He was the best ingame leader in Spain, his teams were a step ahead of the rest and he has won titles even with a worse team than his opponent.

I remember when he took sioKR and n1ce, both kicked from x6tence, and a younger xhiroz, when he was in Ledpc, and finished 1st that EPS season winning x6tence.

multi-gaming squad since few years,i think the guy you are talking about did something again with the koreans managing redcode,but i'm not sure,a same for spain, they have sponsors and stuff now.

2012-04-02 20:54:45
they aren't, i think the last owners were the same that signed the korean team (solo and co) with redcode...also a fake org xD
2012-04-02 20:59:21
Fortunately not! You're talking about Alfredo Alamar, doesn't it? He was redCode's CEO.

We've running GIANTS! since two years ago more or less. Team Giants isn't GIANTS! Gaming :)
2012-04-02 21:26:23
Good to hear then, as our manager got fucked and paid everything for us to dreamhack. He didn't get anything from the org back then.. We had many "sponsors" then..
2012-04-02 21:54:32
The same happened to the Koreans on redCode and many others in Spain, you're not alone ;).

Many promises based on a project without any kind of realistic basis. Alfredo was, in fact, mad. At least we're glad to see that he won't come again on any gaming business.

2012-04-02 23:46:36
At eps season 34united was the 2nd finally
2012-04-03 00:28:02
they are lower than those.
2012-04-03 15:18:17
I find better team the old UNITA than this DN, even having Spanishfury today, and UNITA lost against 34united on brackets.
2012-04-03 18:21:41
Because UNITA was mix. Now i think UNITA > 34united easyyyyyyyyyy
2012-04-03 21:17:35
ahahahahahaha NOT
2012-04-04 02:56:28
we have x6tence, GIANTS!, DN-Gaming, UNITA and 34united as the 5 best spanish teams
