MAJ3R joins GlobalGaming League

GlobalGaming League have announced that they have recruited Engin "MAJ3R" Kupeli.

Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli had been expected to return to activity after playing for Epsilon as a stand-in for Joey "fxy0" Schlosser in the first online qualifier for ESWC France, where Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom's team finished runners-up to LDLC.

He has now linked up with GlobalGaming League, who were one of the biggest surprises of that same qualifier as they reached the semi-final stage, where they were eliminated by LDLC in a three-map contest.


MAJ3R joins GGL 

The former Imaginary Gaming member will step into the shoes of Alexandre "HKA" Vandamme, who has been given his marching orders by the team.

"I decided to join GGL after the qualifier for ESWC France,” he told vakarm.net. "I have known madc and HEdm since 1.6, I knew they were young players with a lot of potential and who needed a helping hand.

"With the years of experience I have behind me, I think I will be able to make them even stronger players.

"What I have learned from my first week here is that I have regained the urge to play seriously. In my career I have got used to playing with established players, but the advantage of playing with players who are less known is that there is a different motivation."

With these changes, GGL now have:

France David "Dewid" Thalien
France Charbel "BouLy" Naoum
France Kevin "madc" Ducourtioux
Turkey Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli
France Nassim "ENy" Rebhi

didnt know that maj3r is turkish ;p
2014-09-27 20:00
They used this flag just because he last played for turkey, but he's french
2014-09-27 20:18
he is french? hahaha lol'd so hard. sure engin küpeli is a french name lol
2014-09-27 20:58
He is French citizen, nationality is something else.
2014-09-27 21:00

Then 40% of the French population wouldn't be called French according to your standards.
2014-09-27 22:22
he is like Kapio, his name is iranian (Navid Javadi) but he is from germany
2014-09-28 05:59
it was his decision.
2014-09-27 20:59
ty for info! ;p
2014-09-27 21:16
I hoped for MAJ3R joins EPSILON, my dream is shattered! T_T
2014-09-27 20:05
+1, he needs a better team than this.But it's a start, i guess
2014-09-27 20:48
and SIXER too
2014-09-27 21:16
They lost Van Damme ? They are doomed now :D Edit: Volvo will probably BAN them from competition after removing him : --> youtube.com/watch?v=M7FIvfx5J10
2014-09-27 20:11
maj3r turkish haha lolwat?
2014-09-27 20:05
Ever heard of people being born in other countries ? :D
2014-09-27 20:25
MAJ3R was born in France tho
2014-09-28 07:24
Yes probably but his name is Turkish so his parents must be too.
2014-09-28 11:54
Well my grand grand father was german so should I have a german flag? MAJ3R was born and raised in France so the turkish flag is just plain wrong. He does have a turkish passport too and he played for Turkey so that's why the flag. But he is french.
2014-09-29 13:17
This is a Mesut Ozil kinda situation :P
2014-09-29 13:29
Finnaly, I can watch my favourite 1.6 superstar playing CSGO. I hope it's not a matter of weeks to see this team getting disbanded.
2014-09-27 20:19
1.6 superstar MAJ3R pick one
2014-09-28 12:39
Good pick up by GGL hope they set some more stable results with m4j3r added

i guess to live in France when you play videogames all day long , you need french nationality and not Turkish to get some social help for "living" so this flag seems not legit at all xD xD

Another 1.6 beast that could easily end up playing for a top team. Why the Turkish frag tho?
2014-09-28 05:41
because he is Turkish
2014-09-28 17:07
No he is not
2014-09-29 13:14
Oh god... Let me explain that once more. He lives in france but this does not mean he is french. His parents Turkish and his name also Turkish. I hope your litte brain understand it now. You little finnish kiddo

I don't think that decides which country you're from. But all of that is probably more of a subjective opinion, like neither you or more can decide what Maj3r is, it all depends what he considers himself, whether that's French or Turkish neither is wrong.
2014-09-29 17:29
No need to go personal here. He was born in France, he has lived his entire life in France. I would say that pretty much makes him french. Totally unnecessary to go "finnish kiddo". You are wrong and even if you were right it is still uncalled for. edited: typed wrong
2014-09-29 17:45
hahaha yes thats why he playing for Turkey today hltv.org/match/2292943-poland-turkey-eur..
2014-09-29 17:45
Like I said before, he does have turkish citizenship but he is still french. I have swedish citizenship but I'm still finnish. E: It seems like you are trying to get some credit from someone else's doing
2014-09-29 17:53
even french people understand that he is turkish but lives in france but you still not understand. I think you have to go mental doctor because you dont use your brain properly
2014-09-29 17:54
Let's just say you were right :) let us leave it at that
