Curse add adreN, AZK; Dynamic dead

April 25th, 2013 04:26

Curse has recruited Eric "adreN" Hoag and Keven "AZK" Lariviére from Team Dynamic to fill their roster after removing two players yesterday. Dynamic ceases to exist.

The North American Curse squad announced the removal of in-game leader Cody "ezpk" Shirley and original hold mouse one member Michael "Michael3D" Wilbanks yesterday evening.

Today they have completed the additions of Eric "adreN" Hoag and Keven "AZK" Lariviére, two former teammates of Todd "anger" Williams, from Team Dynamic, to bring their roster back to five active players.

Team Dynamic has been led by Hoag for a long time and the team which now only consists of Sal "Volcano" Garozzo, Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and Braxton "swag" Pierce can safely be considered dead.

Hoag is expected to take over the in-game leading duties in Curse while Lariviére has always been a strong AWPer, similarly to Curse's star player Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham. The roster now looks as follows:


United States Eric "adreN" Hoag
United States Todd "anger" Williams
Canada Keven "AZK" Lariviére
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham
Canada Stan "stan" Sukachov

Garozzo is expected to retire from active playing career while both Gilbert and Pierce will likely end up in some team in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to for more updates as the situation develops.

Adren was an hybrid for dynamic.. Main awper was AZK, so I guess Skad and AZK will split the job
2013-04-25 04:48

In GO yeah :) Adren is a hybrid. Was the opposite in CS:S mind you :D
2013-04-25 05:14
things change.. just like britain's reign over the 13 colonies!!!
2013-04-25 07:27
And now China's reign over the USA :D

Hell no!
2013-04-25 09:18
don't deffend the only good canadian player,ofc he's good, proably 2nd best awpor in the the American scene, but imo skadoodle is just better
2013-04-25 11:58
United States criimson 
AZK has been playing with the AWP way more time the Skadoodle now his accuracy and consistency level is definitely not to get on a comparison chart yet AZK is still better with the big green and for the record there has been plenty of good canadian players in CS throughout history and Semphis is one of them and he is currently active still so... you're wrong again sir

DING DING!! We have a winner :D
2013-04-26 02:30
I thought Skadoodle is main awper..
2013-04-25 15:22
according to adren on stream, AZK is gonna switch to rifle and skadood will be primary awper
2013-04-25 22:31
I expected this to happen, since AZK is also an amazing rifler.
2013-04-26 06:19
Can't wait to see is they will use 2awp setup on maps such as Dust2. Would be awsome to see with these awpers in the team.
2013-04-25 15:32
double awp in d2 is bad in cs:go,ct side and T side need to be much more agressive than in other games therefore playing too passive would hurt them

2013-04-27 04:45
awesome move for curse :) gl
2013-04-25 04:28
good luck ! very nice squad

April Fool's oh shit nevermind, it's just murica who cares, actually
2013-04-25 04:34
*crickets*... anyway, sucks for dynamic but im kind of excited to see where n0thing and swag end up. volcano should honestly just give up dude has been in the game for like 15 years lol
2013-04-25 04:36
"who cares, actually" Like anyone interested in the international scene ? Anyway, it's good for Curse, let's hope swag and nothing can bring out some new talents to make a third American top team.
2013-04-25 05:44
Hong Kong SHiFT^up 
Because now the team won't get anywhere, as American teams are somewhat far from the European level. All the more with 2 players used to AWPing on the team.
2013-04-25 06:08
Either you're biased towards European teams, either you didn't watch the ESEA games. Quantic has what it takes to be top5 (and proved it). Curse was a bit short on skill in my opinion, and these changes can fix this. I'd say that this roster can claim top10, maybe top5 after some time. Nothing is done, and it'll be hard for them, but it's definitely possible.
2013-04-25 06:15
Hong Kong SHiFT^up 
I am biased toward European teams, but it's more than obvious the only murican team capable of being close to top 10 is Quantic. They only got 2nd because VG played like shit in their bo3 against Quantic, and teams like WW, VP, etc. weren't there.
2013-04-25 13:44
That's your opinion, I suppose we'll see what happens on future tournaments, but I'm pretty sure Quantic can claim top10 already.
2013-04-25 19:34
Going to use this excuse (Very Games) for ever? Quantic was the better team that day. They could very well surprise many of the top Euro teams (NiP and VP are probably the only two they would not fair well versus).
2013-04-25 20:06
lol quantic beat arguably the top 2 best team in cs:go(verygames) and beat esc which we can say its around top 5,wtf you are talking european but saying that euro teams >>>>american teams is just stupid
2013-04-25 19:41
Hong Kong SHiFT^up 
Quantic != all of American CS:GO teams. If you look at other American teams, they haven't gotten anywhere at all.

2013-04-25 16:24

eg CEO supports cspromod so i don't think this will happen, atleast not yet.
2013-04-25 11:37
Peru dbie 
lmao, such an awful move. I bet that whatever ends up happening with swag and n0thing will be much better. sad for NA but I guess all the chips are now on Quantic.
2013-04-25 04:42
nice move, they can do damage, gl for them!
2013-04-25 04:42
..... why would you put the two best NA awpers on one team. Somewhere right now, Quantic is smiling.
2013-04-25 04:43

time for some dual awps!
2013-04-25 05:33
It will be interesting to see who will do what. People seem to forget that: VG - NBK, SmithZz, Ex6TenZ all use to be main awpers (CSS) Quantic - DaZeD used to be a main awper (CSS)

swag and n0thing! :(
2013-04-25 04:59
anger reuniting with old teammates wonder if that'll be awkward though lol
2013-04-25 04:59
Why are ppl calling this a bad move, m3d and ezpk weren't good enough, and they more than had their chances. Also, Dynamic can't support adren and azk like curse can so why wouldn't they join, and ska and anger are every bit as good as nothing and swag.
2013-04-25 05:00
adreN and AZK joining any team is never a bad move...those niggas are s0L1D
2013-04-25 05:13
Honestly thought the dynamic roster was considerably better than this current roster and the old Curse roster...
2013-04-25 05:16
kiko sobo flowsick swag n0thing
2013-04-25 05:17
skadoodle and azk in same team :O
2013-04-25 05:32
why would they go with adren instead of n0thing or adren and n0thing now you have 2 awpers lel
2013-04-25 05:49
n0thing is a fag + adreN and AZK will never leave each other, kinda like stavros and strux1.
2013-04-25 12:06
Or fifflaren and friberg :)
2013-04-25 14:04
Or f0rp and GTR actually,since 09.
2013-04-25 15:38
friberg and fifflaren since 2009 too I think :-)
2013-04-25 16:50
adreN is an IGL and they need an IGL.
2013-04-25 17:02
The thing is : If it's true that the decision of changing the roster comes indeed from the management, maybe has to worry a bit at their next big event. If they don't place well they might have the same kind of "request" from the org.
2013-04-25 05:51
i actually think this line is better than exDynamic. go ska go azk
2013-04-25 06:04
Dazed Swag N0thing Frod Kiko
2013-04-25 06:07
think swag&n0thing will both make a team with frod, we'll see sucks for dynamic anyway
2013-04-25 06:35
swag n0thing clown frod storm this would be a pretty cool lineup
2013-04-25 17:12
clown? haha
2013-04-25 17:31
whos clown?
2013-04-25 19:41
deaded not dead omg
2013-04-25 07:16
I think this team will be better than dynamic in the long run since they'll be more active and have more opportunities to attend international tournaments
2013-04-25 07:21
The team was killed by n0thing and swag. Both idiots. n0thing never left team EG, he represented dynamic poorly. Bad attitude tbh. Thinks his better than everyone. Adren and Azk always wanted to commit but swag and nothing wanted to play 1.6 and GO together....
2013-04-25 07:32
You don't even know the guy to say that he has a bad adittude and thinks he's better than everyone..
2013-04-25 12:57
lol n0thing has one of the best atitudes ever wtf you talking about
2013-04-25 19:42
n0thing, swag, seangares, x, x. Would be lots of fun!
2013-04-25 07:47
Y u no pick n0thing ?

Why would you play this game if you don't get paid anyway lol
2013-04-25 08:47

why do you watch this game or read this forum if you dont get paid?
2013-04-25 17:44
+1 I dont think even if I get payed I would do it.
2013-04-25 11:41
because dynamic doesnt have the cash to send their team to europe
2013-04-25 11:08
swag and n0thing deserve a good team. such a shame they will not be able to find any since they're in america. unless...... some players will make a comeback.

2013-04-25 09:47

2013-04-25 19:42
not worth it with his attitude. just like rattlesnk.
2013-04-25 20:05
n0thing come to EU, pls
2013-04-25 08:42
dignitas n0thing)))
2013-04-25 10:28
looooooooooool i guess you put this since i hate steel and hudzG. If it's that you made my day today because i lol'd so much. If not you must kinda be trolling. dignitas not even top20 and so bad like steel and hudzG. n0thing would never play with such noobs...he deserves something good like shoxie GuardiaN apEX etc.
2013-04-25 13:27
lol would be awesome to see some UK + US combination team!
2013-04-25 14:05
Yes but not steel or hudzG, lol'd

That's a pretty solid lineup. Looking forward to seeing them compete.

I wanted to see n0thing + swag there :)..lineup looks good, but too many awp-ers..we will see how they will split awping :)..
2013-04-25 09:15
n0thing is a great rifler also and im sure he will rifle
2013-04-25 14:59
Slovakia uno1 
you wanted to write adren ?
2013-04-25 15:18
No, n0thing
2013-04-25 20:12
Adren is understandable he is igl secondary awping solid fragging.but why AZK? he is an amazing Awper but as a rifler he is kinda meh! They should pick a rifler for me
2013-04-25 09:26
I told you so :D
2013-04-25 10:07
n0thing swag Volcano fRoD Storm moE Warden 5 of these players would easily beat Curse.NA within 6 months.
2013-04-25 10:26
sunman plays as well :P we might see a really really oldschool lineup here with some younger blood :P my prediction? fRoD,volcano,sunman,swag,nothing
2013-04-25 12:08
volcano is bad and he should feel bad,-sunman + storm,that guy is solid
2013-04-25 19:43
Finland Kklz 
Not a bad move actually, should be stronger now. Dynamic should get rid of Volcano and bring in Frod, Storm & Warden. Would be #1 NA in couple of months with some practise :).

Daymn! Sad for Dynamic. Was really looking forward to seeing more of their action. Weren't they also the only actually payed team in the US atm.? Anyway, sad news, and somewhat strange of course with all that AWP power on one team. Hopefully we'll see Dynamic pick up a few other good players and keep going. Otherwise the US just lost one of three top teams who could actually compete in the EU as well, and it's hard to see how that's positive for the game and scene :/ Best of luck to both Curse with their new lineup and the rest of the Dynamic players.
2013-04-25 11:11
CSGO.NA seems to be like 1.6 was in sweden back in 2009-2011. 1-5 people changing teams, and noone new comes up to shine in the cs scene x)
2013-04-25 11:22
the reason for that is, in order to keep your invite spot in esea you cant change too many players. if they added say 3 new talents theyd automatically get moved down to main division. its why you see the same 15 guys in all these teams
2013-04-25 13:12
wow esea>alllll
2013-04-25 19:43
T.D were agree to give 2 players instead of keeping them for their lineup ??!! so weird

2013-04-25 11:56
they have curse and quantic. and maybe they swag and nothing will join a team like denial esports with flowsick sobo and kiko
2013-04-25 12:05
that was unexpected :O looks like a sick roster to me
2013-04-25 12:51
Looks like a strong team, Wonder whos going to awp? im assuming skadoodle with azk dropping to rifler/2nd awper.

Will be great to see an NA team finally challenge EU. Also interested to see where the Dynamic remnants will go...
2013-04-25 14:47
I love how teams enter one event, place below 4th, and then let players go and get new ones or fall apart. Curse and TD will never be on tip for that reason. Fucking bums.
2013-04-25 15:36
they've played CPH with the exact same lineup... last time they changed lineup was in january, and it was because frozt went to quantic and juvenile decided to go inactive.
