Vici Gaming sign CyberZen
Vici Gaming have finally confirmed their expansion to the Counter-Strike scene with the acquisition of CyberZen's team.
Vici Gaming, one of the most successful Asian organisations in MOBA games, boasting a Dota 2 team who finished fourth at The International 2015, had announced at the end of last year that they were keen on investing in the emerging Chinese Counter-Strike scene, which has garnered a lot of interest from the esports giants in the region.
With Chinese veterans Bin "Savage" Liu and BingYuan "tb" Li in their ranks, CyberZen established themselves as the strongest team in China last year and attended in January the StarSeries global finals, where they took 7th-8th and had a three-map thriller against the current FaZe team.
