KLANLOS come to life

A new German top team has been created under the name KLANLOS, featuring several high-profile players.

With the new EPS season looming, there has been a lot of transfer activity in the upper echelon of the German Counter-Strike scene as teams swap players with hopes of creating a hegemony in the country. mousesports, for example, made waves when they signed three players from PENTA Sports, who, in turn, brought on four new players, two of whom had already donned the team's colours in the past. 

With their future up in the balance, five talented players with plenty of EPS experience under their belts have rolled up their sleeves and created a new team that, on paper, have the potential to make their mark on the German scene.


crisby & co create a new team 

Christian "crisby" Schmitt, Oliver "kzy" Heck and Kevin "keev" Bartholomäus were all part of the Playing Ducks team who finished third/fourth at ESL FM Germany earlier in the month. After the event, the players decided to go their separate ways, with André "Kirby" Kempa linking up with myXMG and taking the team's ESL ESEA Premier division spot with him.

Rounding out KLANLOS' roster are another former member of Playing Ducks, Andre "Andrue" Dangel, who returns to activity after a period away from the spotlight, and Patrick "gimpen" Heyer, formerly of myXMG and w4sp.

"We all know each other for several years now and have played together on a lot of teams," Oliver "kzy" Heck told HLTV.org. "The exception in this case is gimpen, who is our newst addition.

"We share the same goals and mindset about the game. We all want to step up and play at the biggest tournaments, so we spend a lot of time with the game.

"To achieve our goals and attend events we need support. We have talked to a couple of organizations, but nothing is settled yet, which is why we are open to offers. We can be contacted at klanlos.csgo@gmail.com or via steam: crisby_the_one"

KLANLOS are on course to reach the next season of EPS Germany as they currently sit fourth in the Major Ladder, with four victories from as many matches.

The team's lineup is the following:

Germany Christian "crisby" Schmitt
Germany Oliver "kzy" Heck
Germany Kevin "keev" Bartholomäus
Germany Andre "Andrue" Dangel
Germany 
Patrick "gimpen" Heyer

Each of us knows the others for several years now and we have played in a lot of teams together.
The exception in this case is gimpen, who is our newest addition.
We share the same mindset about the game and we share the same goals.
All of us want to step up and play on the biggest tournaments, therefor we spend a lot of time with the game.
To achieve our goals we need support in order to attend events. We have talked to a couple of organizations, but nothing is settled yet, which is why we are open for offers.

"We share the same goals and mindset about the game. We all want to step up and play at the biggest tournaments, so we spend a lot of time with the game." When Kzy and Andrue got barred in the ESL with 12 penalty points each, it sounded more like "2 Years of barrage is not a big deal, we are finished with the game anyway" HAHAHAHAH
2015-05-19 12:13
banned for cheating* :)
2015-05-19 12:15
and what is it with the headline??? "A new German top team has been created under the name KLANLOS, featuring several high-profile players." Its not a german top team.. Its a decent german EAS Team, but except crisby and andrue, there are just noobs in it...
2015-05-19 12:16
So the fake kev1n desites to call himself keev because of fakers, just like the real kev1n? get a grip
2015-05-19 15:11
are you dumb? keev has always been keev and kev1n is another player. besides that there are 10000 kev1ns because that nickname is so original.
