Kinguin signs CS:GO team

May 5th, 2015 12:37

Kinguin has made its first foray into CS:GO territory by completing the signing of the rumoured new SK Gaming lineup.

For over a week now, the Counter-Strike community has been buzzing with excitement after it was revealed that a star-studded international line-up was in the making, featuring Swedish duo Mikail "Maikelele" Bill and Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson, Norwegian talent Håvard "rain" Nygaard, Belgian hot-shot Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom and Portuguese veteran Ricardo "fox" Pacheco.

Adding to the excitement was the fact that SK Gaming, one of the most established organisations in the business, were in talks to sign the team as they looked to make their way back into the Counter-Strike scene after disappointing experiences with two all-Swedish rosters.


ScreaM & co will represent Team Kinguin 

However, SK Gaming's proposed move for the team was hijacked by Kinguin, a Hong Kong-based digital game key company, which stepped in at the last minute and quickly reached an agreement with the players.

"For a long time Adil and I have been discussing a potential lineup with both of us wanting it badly.  Right after being released from NiP we picked up those talks and started looking over our possibilities to make it come true.  We now have all the support and backup needed to go all the way in Team Kinguin and I know I speak for my team when I say that's exactly what we're going to do.
Our goal is simple.  We want to play against the top tier teams in the top tier tournaments.  It won't be easy and we know that a lot of time and effort will be needed to honor what Adil and I once could only dream about.  Trust me when I say we are ready though.  Are you?  Let's go!"

"For a long time Adil and I have been discussing a potential lineup with both of us wanting it badly," Bill said in a statement.

"Right after being released from NiP we picked up those talks and started looking over our possibilities to make it come true.  We now have all the support and backup needed to go all the way in Team Kinguin and I know I speak for my team when I say that's exactly what we're going to do.

"Trust me when I say we are ready though. Are you? Let's go!"

Maikelele will be hoping to take this chance to kick-start his career after watching his stint in Ninjas in Pyjamas come to a sudden end as the team concluded that he lacked top-flight experience, even though he had been their best player at ASUS ROG Winter. On this new team, the Swedish AWPer will reunite with SKYTTEN and rain after playing alongside them across two different spells in LGB.

Getting rain on board was the hardest part about putting this lineup together: the Norwegian talent had 22 months to run on his contract with LGB, but in the end the two organisations were able to agree an undisclosed fee for the player.

The remaining two players come from outside of the Nordic region but are well-known figures in the scene: ScreaM, who is by many regarded as one of the best aimers in the game, with previous spells in VeryGames, Titan and Epsilon, and fox, who is Portugal's most famous player, with an impressive career that goes back to the early days of the game.

With this team, Kinguin enters the Counter-Strike scene with a bang as they boast a lineup that, on paper, is capable of challenging the best teams in the continent. But questions remain about whether the players  will be able to overcome the language barrier that comes from the fact that they will have to communicate in English.

Team Kinguin feature the following players:

Sweden Mikail "Maikelele" Bill
Sweden Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Belgium Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom
Portugal Ricardo "fox" Pacheco

2015-05-06 06:38
won't it be awkward to have players who are sponsored by kinguin have kinguin in their username? for example Kinguin ScreaM vs TSM cajunb * Kinguin gonna look so retarded
2015-05-05 14:23
Obviously they won't use those names vs Kinguin and as soon as all the contracts end Kinguin won't be allowed to sponsor another team.

2015-05-06 10:39
I'd not be so proud to announce that specific team, because they barely have any bright future. To communicate in ENglish, you need to have really good skillz in it. If you think, that that "communication", which you have in MM, is enough, then you're badly mistaken. We all know the level of ScreaM's English. I guess only Maikelele has good English, may be SKYTTEN has it too, because Sweedes learn English well in schools, unlike the guys from Belgium or France. I also highly doubt, that foxj is able to speak proper English, it means that that team is doomed to fail and split up in a couple of months. I'd be glad to be mistaken, but it seems I'm right... But still GL to the guys!

2015-05-05 14:25
World#1 raiding guild in WoW is international. If 20 to 25 non-native-English-speakers can communicate there, why not in CS:GO? And yes, they're both as intensive.

wrong game dude thats csgo u talking about ala "buttonmash"
2015-05-05 14:00
You obviously Know nothing about WoW
2015-05-05 14:02
afaik, warcraft III had a much higher skill ceiling, even LoL does.
2015-05-05 15:04
True for warcraft 3, but i think it's easier to go plat/diam on lol than 2k2+ on WoW, only my opinion !
2015-05-05 18:58
yeah, but I mean like DotA/Dota2/WcIII had a higher skill ceilling for me personally anyway. Never really got interested in WoW coz most of it seems like buttonmashing. My friend is in one of the top raiding guilds and he told me he just buttonmashes most of the time.
2015-05-05 19:04
Ah yeah PvE is Just about doing the same strat and knowing your cycle (of dps/healing/tanking). True story !
2015-05-05 19:22
^ Wow posts fake "important hacker news" and then thinks he has a say in the community -.-
2015-05-05 14:10
I can agree with you, but on the other hand, in wow you pretty much know what to do in each boss, but in cs its not the same..still very possible tho.
2015-05-05 14:31
Every CS:GO scenario was played a thousand times a decade ago. With the right amount of practice, all situations become pretty much mathematical for pro-players.
2015-05-05 14:36
It is,but the game is much more complex than WoW
2015-05-05 16:54
More complex? How? Instead of two commonly used weapons and four different nades, WoW consists of thousands of abilities, items and rotations for different scenarios. Movement isn't WASD only and the amount of time you need to spend is far more extreme.
2015-05-05 17:29
ahaha raiding in wow, any dumbnuts can do that, the skillevel in that game is superlow
2015-05-05 19:22

I seriously doubt that will be a problem. They wouldn't create a team like this, with these kind of money to get rekt because of communication issues. I bet they'll figure everything out ;)

they need a good long bootcamp, where they need to communicate in english at all times. and i think they will need a coach too, which is suprising that they don't have one. if they manage to do those two things, i bet they are competing in the top 10.
2015-05-05 13:56
I are think they need emilio to coach them.

2015-05-05 15:00
U are talking like communication is science. ITS NOT. It was about time to get international teams into cs. They are working very well in other games too. Sceams english is also getting pretty decent, decent enough for this game.
2015-05-05 14:09
i totally agree that international teams should be a thing and should have been years ago. but it depends on what players ur gonna get to make it work. mouz has failed at least twice at it. in nip its working a little, but meh. they seem to still have slight communication issues sometimes, or u could say it affects them at least a bit. and they are 4 swedes with decent english and 1 fin with decent english and a little swedish too. and ur telling me its not gonna be an issue with a guy like scream? haha.
2015-05-05 14:32
I didnt say its gonna be issue. But people saying they are gonna fail because of that are dumb. U cant take mouse as an example, they have much less skill in their team. And there is noway they are gonna beat tier1 teams, but i can bet they are gonna do decent against tier2 teams.
2015-05-05 14:37
In Belgium and in Portugal people have a pretty decent level in english.. unlike France though.. ScreaM's level in english is not representative of the average english level in belgium.

wow, what happens to tsm kinguin??
2015-05-05 13:36
Kinguin is sponsoring Fnatic and TSM, but they have enough money to have their own team now, I don't think the sponsorships will end because TSM and Fnatic are 2 biggest organisations in eSports and they give them sick advertisment.
2015-05-05 13:37
more like C9
2015-05-05 13:50
C9 is broke. All of their teams/players havent won a single shit in about a year.
2015-05-05 13:53
you know there salary is more than any other europe team
2015-05-05 13:53
Have you ever heard of loans? Their Dota 2 team for full 2 years hasnt won a tournament, always 2nd place. I dont even wanna talk about their csgo team.
2015-05-05 14:01
Ok still C9 has more money than any other Europe team They are 10x times worse but there salary are higher
2015-05-05 14:04
Navi, nip and GoodGameAgency all give more salary than C9.
2015-05-05 14:05
Not in CSGO
2015-05-05 14:15
what does every team have in salary then? i mean since you seem to have so much knowledge about this. i know tsm's salary and i know that nip said that they pay their csgo team more than tsm does, but takes 10% of the winnings. dailydot.com/esports/tsm-counter-strike-.. esport.aftonbladet.se/csgo/ninjas-bossen..
2015-05-05 14:31
hortly after X Games Aspen, another established AMERICAN organization entered the Counter-Strike scene. It was no secret that Team SoloMid had been looking to
2015-05-05 14:34
i know tsm is an american organisation, but as i said, nip has a higher salary and tsm were rumored to have the highest salary in the game? so how about that? once again i ask you: what does every team have in salary? you seem to know.

dude salary is not dependant on team results, c9 sucked for 6 months in cs;go, but it doesn't make the organization poor
2015-05-05 14:41
You are wrong on so many levels. TSM and Fnatic are the richest orgs, C9 doesn't even come close to these 2. After that there are envyUS a huge org, NiP a big org, Na'Vi, CLG, C9 is around there.
2015-05-05 14:28
TSM is american org mate
2015-05-05 14:29
I know and why does it make a difference? American ORG With 1 American player in their whole Org? :D That's funny but it still doesn't change the fact that in terms of Achievements, Money, Populiarity.. Fnatic > TSM > C9/CLG/envyUS and etc in the world.
2015-05-05 14:31
tsm is way richer then fnatic for sure, they are like ultra mega rich
2015-05-05 14:57
Dumbest comment. Fnatic is soooo many years older than TSM. Not a chance that TSM has more funding.
2015-05-05 17:12
it has, their LoL team is full of super stars, they receive really much just from the sponsors
2015-05-05 17:35
No. Fnatic had and has the strongest LoL team in EU, ( Lost only 1 split out of 5 ) they won League of Legends World Championship Season 1, they had players like xPEKE = he is the most known LoL player ever, so if we talk about superstars.. please. When it comes to FNATIC CS:GO it's the most succesful team of the recent times. + Fnatic are sick in other games aswell. Sponsors? Steelseries > LOgitech, TWitch is on both, Kinguin is on both, Fnatic have MSI FUCKING MSI and BenQ.. cmon man.
2015-05-05 19:04
HTC> all those sponsors, also bjergsen is the biggest western star, the players alone earn dozens of thousand euros per month and they are one of the most old orgs in LoL, dont forget that
2015-05-05 19:14
in LoL*, remember that, yet XPEKE is way more known. DOTA2 players earn WAAY more than LoL, same with StarCraft mostly and TSM don't have teams for these. HTC > all? I disagree, HTC is not like Kinguin that sponsors them, it's HTC Gaming = just a small offspring from the company, do you think they would give a fuck about Esports org? Anyway SAMSUNG has it's own teams if you think HTC > ALL then these Samsung LoL teams > ALL.. + MSI > HTC in Esports.
2015-05-05 19:18
you're stupid. FNC is almost 20 years old. They've sponsored players and teams since 1997. They've had famous teams in both CS1.6 CS:GO and LoL.
2015-05-06 09:28
C9 is not broke lol
2015-05-05 13:55
that really doesn't have shit to do with return on investment. C9's players have massive social media and streaming presence, and I'd argue that C9 wisely chases the talent that wins hearts, not tournaments. Remember that these organizations get their money from sponsors for BRAND EXPOSURE. Winning tournaments isn't the only way to find an audience these days.
2015-05-05 14:18
Uuu, EternalEnvy is real heart warming piece of shit if you put it that way. Bone7 too.
2015-05-05 14:29
Yes and? TSM and Fnatic are still the biggest and richest Orgs in Esports. TSM players streaming > > > C9, TSM is the most popular Band in LoL and very known in CS:GO, SPECIALLY TWITCH in LoL. Fnatic is the most succesfull Organisation if we talk acieviement wise, SMITE, CS:GO, LoL and other games all have Top 3 teams in the world in their regions, now they have partnered with Twitch and their players are getting WAY MORE on Twitch than C9 ever will. Peace out.
2015-05-05 14:30
success of C9's rivals does not imply that they are broke I'd reason with you further but you're clearly a fucking retard peace out third worlder
2015-05-05 14:59
lol team doesn't win everything clearly they have no money logic bro
2015-05-05 18:33
LOL Who said they don't have any money? Stop talking, you'll look smarter.. FailFish
2015-05-05 19:02
LOL who said i was referring to you?
2015-05-05 20:12
I AM NOT SAYING THEY ARE BROKE, are you that fucked in the head ? Im just saying Fnatic and TSM are much bigger Orgs than C9.
2015-05-05 19:05
Nice, pathetic on SK part, but WP by Kinguin ;)
2015-05-05 13:36
why "pathetic on SK part"?
2015-05-05 15:19
Well just because they were making this deal for so long and couldn't go through with it at the very end..

How can you make a top3 out of tier 2/3 players? I mean sure, they've played on the highest tier but.. they will have the communication issues. So no top3.

2015-05-05 13:48
yeah, pick someone that can't communicate instead of having an IGL, that really makes sense. Go play some MM and you might just get out of silverleague some day.
2015-05-05 15:19
The team sounds crazy, but I would have rather seen pyth or twist than SKYTTEN.
2015-05-05 13:48
pyth is in NA
2015-05-05 13:51
twist is in property, i'd say NiKo instead of Skytten but then who the hell is their igl?
2015-05-05 14:00
Not like they can't get people out of their contracts. That's pretty much the story of this team. But yeah, NiKo would have been an interesting component. I don't think too highly of SKYTTEN, both as an IGL or player. I also don't think this type of team needs a real IGL. We'll see though.
2015-05-05 14:34
Just wow...
2015-05-05 15:20
Dont need a IGL? Wat
2015-05-05 17:42
"real" IGL. Of course you need to dedicate someone to do the calling, but do you really think these guys will have intridcate strategies and timed executions? Please.
2015-05-05 18:00
skytten is really underrated.I remember him as a very solid player back in the days(it must have been the old LGB or something like that).
2015-05-05 20:31
The most over hyped team ever, will probably end up losing to teams like gplay and CPHW. Then the hype will officially die, though best of luck but I just don't see these international teams really accomplishing much

Hard to see their rise to the top. I mean, skillwise yes for sure, but the language barrier will be huge. And who is the IGL? To keep players like ScreaM, Maikelele & rain playing good together, you need a hell good of an IGL to make them play for the team.

this same thing was done with coL, they got thrown together and became one of the best teams in the world, it can happen, communication is not a factor because in all sports there is a language barrier, just depends on commitment which I am sure they have due to signing on to this project, I don't think they will have done this to be 5-10th in the world, they did this to try and become the best. So we will see.

I'm hyped to see them in action, but I'm pretty sure they will fail against top teams. There is no way their tp can overcome the opponents tp if they're matched against a top 5 team. At least not in the beginning. Imagine the pressure to perform, höhö!
2015-05-05 14:25
haha yea, indeed, the pressure must be pretty big =)
2015-05-05 15:23
they will fail, don't need to be a clairvoyant for that. maybe you hltv retards then realize you can't build a team of 5 random ppl, not considering roles and communication.

To be top 10, beating Titan, PENTA, mouz, Fl1pside consistently is not a big deal, lol, so for sure a top 10 Place With alot of upsets to the top teams.

fox = solid awper but not even close to top 5(kenny, Guardian, allu, Ska, etc.) Scream = most overrated player in the world Maikelelele = wiffelele Skytten = HAHA Rain = unknown for now gg
2015-05-05 14:53
if rain is unknown to you, then you shouldn't really say anything in here, because he has been one of the best players in 2015.

If he was the main carry on LGB why they dont achieve anything? I mean i know him, solid aim and raw skill but still nothing achieved for that hype.
2015-05-05 15:28
So, gplay are also nonamers or? Since they didnt achive anything outside balkan (except that they won against 3dmax, so much wow)

On a paper they do look insanely good team, however if you were afraid allu being the problem for NiP's "communication", I would be horrified at this point. All the best though!
2015-05-05 14:34
Good luck scream, make thoose headshots!
2015-05-05 14:36
gl boys sounfs interesting
2015-05-05 14:36
This team is like old Astana Dragons. Lots of firepower and looks good on paper but probably wont mix well seeing as they are all heavy fraggers which will put some of them out in positions they wont like or be comfortable in. They will probably just out frag and scrim other teams to death or completely get outplayed tactically. I see this team doing ok and placing around the bottom of the top 10 in the world but have a hard time seeing them crack the top 5 or give the top 5 really good games unless they are all just hitting their shots.
2015-05-05 14:37
Thanks for da Good read :D I think everyone in this team can make a 1 man show... Even if they didn't succeed we will have fun no matter what when we watch dem play

2015-05-05 15:29
now that I can't edit - it is also possible for them to use the awp players to do the entries and you don't really need a lurker on a team - that is something that only works for some teams.
2015-05-05 15:31
Oh dear, it is going to be very embarrassing when they won't make it past the initial stages in any tournament.

TSM is kinguin..
2015-05-05 14:44
Give them time. At least 9 months. They will be playing against teams like NiP, fnatic, TSM, VP who have been playing together for many years, with a change or two in between. Communication is will be an obstacle, sure, but they're part of a big orga that must do their homework, facilitating the work for the players. Why not get a coach to assist them in tacts an so on? Also, english is not a problem for nordic players. ScreaM and fox should have more problems with it, but it is an easy language. In no time, they will be communicating perfectly. But I think the orga has a key role in this part. It's nice to see an international team. This is good for the game. Good luck Kinguin, specially fox!
2015-05-05 14:44
9 Months is alot of time in CS:GO ;)
2015-05-05 14:47
True. But impatience doesn't bring results.
2015-05-05 23:01
9 months? Nobody is pregnant, dude. These people aren't new to competitive CS and it's true that they need time but nobody is gonna wait them for 9 months to start bringing in decent results in.
2015-05-05 14:49
Minimum. But a year, would be more realistic. Look at TSM (then dignitas) now and what they were many months ago.
2015-05-05 23:00

2015-05-06 06:31
are u being serious? he droped 32 kills in 1/6 games for envy and he did it Against "top 3" team in the world LGB? pls cmon in rest of the matches in lgb he was even worse then smithz.Fact is his style of playing has long been "out of fashion". So yeah i don't see this team even passes a gropu on Major IF they qualify.
2015-05-06 17:19
ok where he enters * my bad (on some drugs lately)
2015-05-05 14:56
scream overrated but good player. maikelele good player but toxic so he will propapbly getting kicked if he does it again. f0x is best in portugal but he have proven he can challenge any awp there. i dont know rly skytten level (atm) rain good player. i think they maybe reach top 10 max.
2015-05-05 14:58
if they can chalange top 10 its already succes for them but trust me if im sure in anything its that this team isn't capable for big things...

2015-05-05 15:27
A company can have a team and sponsor others, why would it be weird? Also a few other teams already have Kinguin as side sponsor, so TSM.Kinguin killed xyz Kinguin happened several times in Faceit. Can't remember the player though

Are you implying that ScreaM gets terrible stats like that? Or that he kills so few that it's easy to get high HS%? Both of the above are wrong.
2015-05-07 00:48
no, I am implying that if you only kill by headshots it doesn't really matter how good you KD is, you will always gonna have a sick HS%.
2015-05-07 05:23
in other words... he and his HS% are overrated as ffuck.
2015-05-07 05:25
HS% will never be overrated. Even if he only frags 9 and 7 of those are HS, it's still a sick stat.
2015-05-13 22:45
if they get more than 3 months of practice together we can talk about a possible top 10 team. if not all there is is just potential and possible communication issues. GL & be patient

I couldn't edit my last post but; The Flag of Europe consists of a circle of 12 golden (yellow) stars on an azure background. It is the flag and emblem of the Council of Europe (CoE) and the European Union (EU).[3] It is also often used to indicate eurozone countries, and,more loosely, to represent the continent of Europe or the countries of Europe independent of any of these institutions.
2015-05-06 10:25

The real struggle here will be teamplay. If they pratice alot they can do alot of damage to anyone. And about fox.. people seems to forget that despite playing in a weaker team(k1ck) he never looks bad on direct dual against best awp's on this game like kenny's, guardian, device, he still won many of theose duels and because of that k1ck made some impressive games against tier1/2 teams.

tbh a return of SK with a good lineup would have been more exciting to me but in the end no matter which organisation they represent this is a good lineup and if they get the communication working could go places
2015-05-05 19:35
Rrrrrrrright, you like many others on HLTV, probably around 80% of the users weren't even born yet in 2004 when SK organisation scammed CS' most legendary lineup ever.
2015-05-05 19:41
thisthisthis dunno how the fuck people like sk even in the slightest..
2015-05-05 23:30
what happen there? :o
2015-05-06 00:54
SK is horrible orga.... they didnt pay some players back in the early days. they always change lineup and fuck other teams lineups to build their own,and after some while they disband. When whale wanted to comeback ,robban asked sk and they refused.

Isn't a Super-star team supposed to be something like; Shox, KennyS, GTR, Olof, Device? Not 5 people who can't find a solid line-up?

2015-05-06 21:41
Not trying to piss on you here mate, but i wouldnt say Rain had any problems finding a solid line-up, he just took a chance at something that might become a far better team than LGB. Imo LGB has been a solid team, qualifying for 2 majors in a row. I understand your point though, just dont group them all together and say they're shit.

I didn't say any of them are shit to be fair, I just mean none of them are actually Super-stars.... great players but not superstars..... yet!
2015-05-14 22:22
Yeah, kick skytten and get niko, oh wait, niko doesnt even speak english :D
2015-05-06 10:32
People shit talking skytten and fox. The fuck? the best players on the team in order: 1. rain 2. fox 3. skytten 4./5. Maik/ScreaM smh noobs need to watch cs properly instead of checking the scores all the time ._.
