Denial signs Trifecta

Denial eSports have signed Trifecta, a team plying its trade in CEVO-P Season 8 and ESEA Premier.

Denial are an organisation whose name should be familiar to any fan of competitive Counter-Strike, especially of the North American scene.

Records of players in our database who have played for the organisation over the years of CS:GO read like a who's-who of North American CS:GO, ranging from [frod] to Nick "nitr0" Cannella.

The organisation was last seen fielding the team who would go on to be poached by Nihilum Gaming and who then had a memorable run at the ESEA Season 18 Global Finals.

Following this loss of a roster, Denial laid low for quite some time but have now announced the signing of Trifecta (also sometimes known as Casaless and as Mortality before that).

The team are currently competing in the Professional Division of CEVO as well as in ESEA Premier, and have scored some high-profile victories recently such as defeating Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen's compLexity 2-0.

Denial's lineup is now:

United States Josh "shinobi" Abastado
United States Shawn "witmer" Taylor
United States Daniel "vice" Kim
United States Max "MKP" Kap
United States Hunter "SicK" Mims

Denial CS:GO currently sit at a 1-5-3 record in CEVO-P Season 8 and are 5-2 in the 20th season of ESEA Premier, the league which sits immediately below the ESL ESEA Pro League.

2015-10-07 05:37
how so?
2015-10-07 13:43
But don't tell him he cause he's.... In a state where he won't believe you.
2015-10-07 15:01

2015-10-07 05:38
Grow up. They're 1000x better than you will ever be.
2015-10-07 05:50
If you have to be as good as someone to criticize him or her then there would be little to no critics in this world
2015-10-07 06:06
Dude, what are you talking about? I've just never heard of them, and never seen them play. Did you need to post that to grow your E-Penis?

I'm just saying what I would've normally said. lol
2015-10-07 08:45
you're all retarded we have no idea who they are kek
2015-10-07 12:04
They had some nice upsets while playing as mortality and just 2 days ago they managed to beat Complexity while playing as Trifecta. You just need to follow the scene more to know about more teams then the t1 teams. EDIT: Or read the article.
2015-10-07 09:33
But this is a low T3 team from NA, its no wonder people dont know who they are...
2015-10-10 20:46
I would class them as a lower t2 team on the uprise. Still its understandable that he doesnt know anything about these. He was acting really ignorant doe.
