CPLAY have announced on their website that they have picked up xPARADISE as their new CS:GO squad.

The Italian team had linked up with Gamer University in January with hopes of finally getting the financial support that would allow them to compete abroad, but they ended up leaving the United States-based organisation over broken promises just months later.

While on the lookout for a new home, the team managed to qualify for SLTV StarSeries VI after finishing in second place in the ProSeries league.

With just days left before the new StarSeries season kicks off, the former NextGaming team have now been given a timely boost as they have been picked up by CPLAY.

"After months of looking for an organization, we are really happy to join CPLAY Tt eSPORTS," Riccardo "kIMERA" D'Urso told CPLAY's website.

"We played the ProSeason of SLTV and we were able to reach second place, qualifying us for a slot in the StarSeries that will start next week.

"We still haven’t had the possibility to practice against the top teams, but we will try to do our best to stay next season as well and we will try to qualify for the EMS final so we can finally attend a LAN event in this new game."

CPLAY's CS:GO division now consists of the following players:

Italy Christian "Stylahhhhh" Forte
Italy Riccardo "kIMERA" D'Urso
Italy Lorenzo "biohazard" Garufi
Guglielmo "GUGLi" Carraro
Italy Tommaso "overfly" Tschuor

with all the teams around without a home and they pick noobs

Well said.
2013-05-03 23:53
how do you know CPLAY can offer the support those teams need ? and what teams are you speaking of btw
2013-05-04 00:02
Maybe they are too poor to sign better teams?
2013-05-04 00:09
so you think cplay is a professional organisation? I doubt they provide them anything more than a server lol

I think even Hawks would have been a better decision than this. Haven't seen any Italians shine in CS:GO.

sad but true: the italians have always been inexistant in esports :(

gl to italians :D
2013-05-04 11:44
You guys are in right. The Italian scene is definitely not the best one. There are a lot of reasons about that, but i don't think it's important to argue about it now. When OX.ENERMAX (kIMERA - Stylahhh - GUGLi - uNd - Nembo) got the opportunity (especially the economic one) to prove their game on EU LANS they always show that italians can do a good job (Look at CPH games and I-series - i know it was on css but that doesn't necessary means that we can't do the same on csgo). I would like to thanks who support us and i understand who don't... Anyway: "Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind. The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself." Kisses to those who know this quote :)
