topguN steps in for Chiefs in Taipei

Chiefs have announced via Twitter that former Vox Eminor member Azad "topguN" Orami will play for the team at IEM Taipei.

The 27-year-old has been out of action since March, when he stepped down from Vox Eminor's team, currently representing Renegades, due to not being able to commit to the number of hours required of him.

Azad "topguN" Orami is now set to make a one-off appearance for Chiefs at IEM Taipei, stepping into the shoes of Chris "CHRiSOAOW" Forman, who is unable to attend the event due to visa issues.

This means that Chiefs will compete at the event with two stand-ins as Ryan "zewsy" Palmerwill be replacing Tyler "tucks" Reilly, who is serving a ban from all ESL competitions.


topguN to play for Chiefs at IEM Taipei 

The Australian team, who won the CyberGamer Premier League Season 4 finals in Melbourne back in November, qualified for IEM Taipei after topping the Oceania Qualifier by defeating Immunity 2-1 in the grand final.

"TopguN was chosen as our 5th for Taipei, not entirely because of his raw skill, but the attitude he would bring that would be missing when CHRiSOAOW couldn't play," team member Christopher "dexter" Nong told au.cybergamer.com.

"That's what a team needs, positive attitudes going into the big games. It is what Azad brings to the team, he keeps everyone in the right mind set with his experience and I couldn't be more thankful for that."

Chiefs have been placed into Group A for IEM Taipei, alongside CyberZen, Risky Gaming and MVP.Karnal, and will face the Malaysian side in their first match in the tournament.

With topguN's addition, Chiefs will attend the event with:

Australia Michael "Lightstep" Hall
Australia Christopher "dexter" Nong
Australia Callum "BURNRUOk" Henderson
New Zealand Ryan "zewsy" Palmer (stand-in)
Australia Azad "topguN" Orami (stand-in)

2016-01-26 14:39
The guy played for vox eminor (renegades) @ Katowice how is he a nonamer?
2016-01-26 15:00
Did you not read my fucking post or are you just trying to be a retard
2016-01-26 15:51
Nobody is a nonamer if they play in majors...

Important to note that if the Chiefs win the event and go to the Offline Qualifier they will have to use topguN there as well. Also zewsy is signed to the team as a backup, so not exactly a stand-in
2016-01-26 14:00
who steps in for who in taipei
2016-01-26 14:04

seems a bit shit to go to an overseas event with two stand ins.. May as well have just given the spot to immunity.
2016-01-26 18:44
And how exactly were they supposed to know they were going to run into visa issues? They won the spot fair and square stop complaining.

Good luck! That's tough having to play with 2 stand-ins.
2016-01-26 21:03
the two standins are pretty much as good as the normal players, and dex and burnruok just got picked up so it's basically a new team.
