PENTA add Planetkey duo

MIRAA
December 29th, 2014 21:35

PENTA Sports have announced that they have recruited Hendrik "strux1"Goetzendorff and Johannes "nex" Maget from Planetkey Dynamics.

The decision comes as a big surprise as PENTA had recently established themselves as the number-one team in Germany after reaching the quarter-finals of DreamHack Winter and finishing in third place at the Acer A-Split Invitational, which they attended with Johannes "nex" Maget as a stand-in.

After rumours emerged of a potential merge between Planetkey Dynamics and PENTA Sports in the last few days, the latter have now announced that they have parted ways with Felix "fel1x" Zech and Robin "r0bs3n" Stephan.


fel1x released from the team 

Replacing the duo are two players from Planetkey Dynamics, Hendrik "strux1" Goetzendorff and nex, with Timo "Spiidi" Richter stating that the move was necessary for the team to reach the next level.

"We played for about six months with this lineup and it was always a lot of fun, the chemistry within the team was always very good, which means a lot," Timo "Spiidi" Richter told PENTA Sports' website.

"On paper we were the most successful German team in history (due to the DreamHack Winter 2014). Unfortunately, we played really inconsistently ,and whenever kRYSTAL had a bad day it didn’t look good for us. Moreover, we didn’t really have a shot caller anyway.

"At this point I want to give special thanks to r0bs3n, who put really a huge amount of work into the team and without whom we wouldn’t be where we are now.

"Nevertheless, it was not enough in the end, obviously. I don’t want to disparage our achievements but we made it to a point where we couldn’t improve our gameplay anymore. We are all really thankful to Felix and Robin for the awesome times we had. Since we secured the spot in the next CS:GO Major together we will of course share the received sticker money with our former team mates. That’s just fair.

"Coming to our new players: Due to the illness of denis we had already had the chance to play with nex in the Acer A-Split tournament. Kevin (kRYSTAL) and I instantly noticed that he is the kind of player we need to improve the team’s performance.

"In my humble opinion he is currently the strongest German player and also has a great personality. With strux1 we have the wanted top caller in our rows who also fits perfectly into the team personality wise. We are highly motivated for the upcoming year 2015 and hope to get the outstanding team that the German CS:GO scene deserves! Finally I will take the position of the new team captain and am wishing you all a Happy New Year!"

With these changes, PENTA Sports now have:

Germany Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend
Germany Denis "denis" Howell

No :D
2014-12-29 22:53
struxi said on stream its the best german lineup atleast on paper, so why wouldnt u try it? they had no real caller so with strux they have one and they asked nex even before the acer invitational event and who would u drop besides felix since the other 3 guys are way better than felix.
2015-01-01 06:28
Yes but nex brings it to the next level :)

there are better players than struxi and maybe denis but its definetly the best right now ;)
2014-12-29 23:11
but there is no better caller than struxi atm and thats what penta needed the most to get closer to the top.
2015-01-01 06:32
Top1 online robsen was their weakest link and they filled it with strux1, a decent IGL. I see potential in this one.
2014-12-29 21:38
robsen was so shit lately because he had to call for them, I feel kinda bad for him :/
2014-12-29 21:43
he wasnt good before aswell.

he was decent though, while his latest performances have been horrible.

allu isn't even German (he's Finnish, and doesn't speak German), and chrisJ, he's Dutch, but as far as I'm aware, he speaks German and plays for the German scene.

2014-12-30 03:33
hab ich mir auch gedacht :D strux ist kein schlechter caller aber es gibt weitaus bessere! gobb wäre top! er würde dieses junge team führen
2014-12-31 04:22
gobb not even close to his 1.6 level brain and aimwise so struxi is better now but if gob would take very much time to rly understand csgo and the other teams he might be back in old glory

be quiet? lol. I follow german scene more than one event or 2 games bro. hes pretty average, spiidi krystal and nex are their star players.

2015-01-01 06:37
Wow, both Penta and Dynamics had some big potential. Now they have taken the best from both teams. Some teamwork and the'll be easy top 7-10. And Khrystal getting a good team for once (Orgasm for us from 1.6)
2014-12-29 22:37
It's kRYSTAL and not the swedish 1.6 player kHRYSTAL.
2014-12-29 22:45
I know but kRYSTAL had big potential back 1.6 as well :)
2014-12-29 22:46
Didn't he play source?
2014-12-29 22:46
Dunno about source actually. Didnt play cs those years. But i remember good 1.6 times when there was rivalry between top teams and hltv wasnt toxic :P
2014-12-29 22:49
lolwut
2014-12-29 23:15
I guess you didnt play 1.6?
2014-12-29 23:52
kRYSTAL didn't play 1.6, I am 100% sure. You dont know what you're talking about and you're confusing him with kHRYSTAL.
2014-12-30 00:04
i guess you lost ur brain ?
2014-12-30 00:07
kRYSTAL never played semi or pro 1.6. The only game he was good at was source, so there's no "remembering him from 1.6 story" to know about. It feels like you are either messing him up with the swedish kHRYSTAL or just being retarded trying to be oldschool.

2014-12-29 23:57
This is a really promising lineup. I think it got the potential to be as good as the old mousesports team with gob b, cyx, tixo, Roman and Kapio. The scene needs a good german team, and I think these guys can even top the current mousesports team on LAN.
2014-12-30 00:07
already did at acer a split
2014-12-30 01:46
they seem to be the best ever created german csgo team up to this day and can crack the top 8, but dont compare them to real cs legends as u mentioned above who were consistantly top 3 to top 5 for several years including winning a number of majors. i dont see any german team reach the individual level the old mouz team had in the near future
2014-12-30 03:01
Im not comparing. Im just saying that this team has the potential to reach that level. Ofcourse they are not near the level of the old mouz at this moment.

It's actually the best possible thing which could happen to PENTA. They keep their 3 guys, so they have a place at the next major. robsen was bottomfragging in 90% cases. i wonder who's better though - denis or fe1ix, but it's them who should decide, right? i hope they will be in top10. 1-5. fnatic 1-5. LDLC 1-5. NiP 1-5. Virtus.Pro 1-5. dignitas 6-7. Na`Vi 6-7. HellRaisers 8-10. iBUYPOWER 8-10. Cph Wolves 8-10. PENTA ...16. Titan
2014-12-30 02:20
titan 16? funny.. xD
2014-12-30 02:40
the only funny thing is that their orga keeps those noobs...
2014-12-30 13:30
denis is better by far ;) felix was just good in some matches for penta but when he played for alternate he was competing with solek to be the worst player.
2015-01-01 06:41
They cant add troubley because they need 3 players from old roster to get their major spot automatically Besides perhaps there is another good reason they arent adding troubley, maybe personality, chemistry, denis second best player for penta at dhw hltv.org/?pageid=173&playerid=7511&event..

the thing in germany is that they have a lot of good teams/players with the potential to do a lot more but not the ONE team which consists of all the best players, this new penta line-up is very promising imo. the best free-agent left is troubley but he will most likely join mouz.
2014-12-30 15:07
So basically robs3n was a huge reason why u got to where u are and now ur just gonna throw him in the garbage...sounds about right for a cs team.
2014-12-30 10:59
na its basically they cant get really better(in terms of success) since robsen is not that good as igl as struxi is. he was a part of the team but not a huge reason that they got that far until now its more the individual skill.

They have the fragpower. But, i dont think it will matter.

They get a good lineup, they perform superbly on lan. They change two important players

strux1 is igl and he can at least hit his shots as good as felix if not better.

probably the best all-german lineup (-denis +troubley tho), kinda happy for it, we need more mid-tier teams

+1. Also Mouz will need some line up change up to even stay relevant in germany. #freeallu
