rumors had been floating for quite some time, that the ESWC champions
PGSPokerStrategy, would be joining forces with the Danish organization MYM. The PGS organization however made a better contract for their CS division and
the team decided to stayed with the Polish organization.
Earlier last week the Danish organization announced they would release their CS division and be focusing on another game type instead of CS. Many said they saw a new team joining within far too long. Mark "Mercy" de Fries, MYM COO, replied to the rumors about yet another CS team joining MYM.
"Sorry to state it guys, but there will be no CS 1.6 team in MYM anymore, we will instead go the ways of CoD4, a team will be announced within the next days."
The statement however became misleading to many, as MYM today announce the
arrival of the five former PGSPokerStrategy players, who earlier today left the Polish organization. The five players will from
this day on be representing MYM as their CS division.
The new MYM CS division consists of:
Jakub "kuben" Gurczyński
Mariusz "loord" Cybulski
Filip "Neo" Kubski
Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas
Lukasz "LUq" Wnek
One of the absolute stars on the team, Filip "Neo" Kubski states following about
the transfer to MYM:
"Leaving PGS was a really difficult decision for us, as we've been part of the team since the beginning. But the time has come and our ambitions have risen. That's why we've decided to join one of the best gaming organizations in the world - MYM. Hopefully now, with right the support of our new friends, we will achieve even more! Also, we would like to thank the PGS guys for their support throughout all these years. These times were our best. We wish them best of luck in the future."
The team will have its debut as the new MYM squad in Extreme Masters versus
Spirit of Amiga in 2008.
