Legacy eSports sign Animal Squad

Australian organization Legacy eSports venture into CS:GO with the acquisition of Faceit 2015 Stage 3 Oceanic winners Animal Squad.

Mere hours after Animal Squad were declared champions of the Faceit 2015 Stage 3 Oceanic division topping a four way tie, it has been announced they are now to represent Australian organization Legacy eSports, known in the region for their League of Legends team.

It is noted in their official announcement, however, that the team and organization have been in talks for months. "We're overjoyed to be sharing our journey with Legacy," stated Captain Sam "⁠mizu⁠" Richardson, "our aspirations closely align and I hope only great things proceed."


Legacy eSports to compete at DreamHack Winter 2015. 

After a dark horse perfomance during Faceit, upsetting regional favorites Renegades and Immunity, we will get to see Legacy eSports offline at an international event very soon, as they will be attending the LAN finals at DreamHack Winter in Jönköping, Sweden from November 26th to the 28th, where $250,000 will be on the line.

The lineup signed to Legacy eSports remains the same as it was in Animal Squad, with three Australians and two New Zealanders:

Australia Mike "⁠ap0c⁠" Aliferis
Australia Sam "⁠mizu⁠" Richardson
Australia Steve "⁠busta⁠" Brewer 
New Zealand Razmik "⁠RaZ⁠" Bastadjan
New Zealand Chris "⁠ofnu⁠" Hanley

2015-10-19 19:52
Asia doesn't have decent teams like AU does, and the ones from Brazil are being represented.
2015-10-20 08:15
maybe UK should get a decent team first...oh wait,that will never happen :-/
2015-10-20 08:53
Actually they are the best one atm, RNG & iM clearly need more fire power, the australian dream team looks like this : dizzy ( AWP ) deStiny ( FIX & 2nd Entry ) JKS ( FIX & 1st Entry ) RBZ ( Pivot & Lurker ) Spunj ( IGL & Support ) SnYper as coach. This team is directly going to T1.

1. No. Dizzy doesn't have the experience nor the commitment. 2. Lurker because he's the dude I'd want alive in clutch situations, azr is just as good. 3. Lightstep awp for chiefs. Zewsy is an insane rifler. Since when is having a second awp a bad thing?

1- Bullshit he will just as fine as he done for the moment. 2- The objectiv for a clutch is to be in 2/1vs1 not to be in a 1vs4 because your team is not good enough to entry teams, AZR is good but he's way better as support, he would get obliterateddead against TOP 10 team, not the case for JKS. 3- Ya i mistaken him with raz sorry. Sorry the final tough for me will be : (zewsy, JKS, Spunj, dizzy, deStiny) - Snyper (C)
2015-10-19 16:23

1. Dizzy isn't playing actively for now, he's just standing when teams need him 2. Jks and azr/zewsy can be exchanged if needed I guess 3 fair enough, every player in chiefs can awp though, they're known for that 3/quad awp setup so easy mistake.

They can defeat them in a BO1 where internet connections plays a large role. I would also have liked chiefs to be the next AUS team to play on an international level not these kids who will get raped. Although it would be really fucking cool if OCE would be the next BIG scene like NA has become, so we could get 3 huge scenes: EU, NA & OCE
