The German organisation, ESC Gaming have announced that they will be signing a Counter-Strike team who will be participating in next season's ESL Pro Series.
The team will be made up of former a-Losers and ULTRAFORCE players, and will be managed by two former ID Gaming owners: Christian "PsYcHo" Lenz and Bjoern "BJNy" Kosin.
Daniel "rage" Andersson, team manager, spoke to SK-Gaming.com earlier today and said:
ESC Gaming have decided to search after a talented Counter-Strike team from Germany that will play in the next season of the EPS, since we got the account of hoorai we felt the need to use it. The last EPS season was great, we saw some young talented players from all those teams and after we discovered this particular lineup - we talked to them about joining ESC and here we are today. Our goal at the next EPS season is to take the places between 5th-7th, and certainly to keep our lineup stable.
If their talent is enough only time will tell. The starting five is:
Christian 'natu' Hennighausen - Team Captain
Marius 'pred' Foerster
Philipp 'philipp' Reitzmann
Sinan 'bauzka' Cavuz
Lukas 'Relay' Nething
The team will join next season's ESL Pro Series and hope to challenge for a decent finish.
