FlipSid3 Tactics have announced that they have completed the signing of dAT Team.
FlipSid3 had been linked with a move for the Ukrainian team for some weeks, but the rumours intensified after the North American organisation announced the departure of their CS:GO team, who will allegedly join Property.

dAT Team's heroics did not go unnoticed by FipSid3, who believe that Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy has what it take to guide the team to success.
"This is the first time in CSGO that we have moved into a new region," says F3 chief Hector "Frost” Rosario.
"Our CSGO squads have always been predominantly Swedish, and we planned to remain that way, until we met Andrii and his squad.
"This unbelieveable team contained both the drive to take their game to the next level, as well as the skill to do so. It was a no brainer that we wanted this group of players to represent our colors at the top levels of CS:GO in 2015.
