ex-Vexed sign for AGG
AGG have announced that they have completed the signing of the former Vexed Gaming team.
The Polish team had been playing under the temporary name "noKappa" since parting ways with Vexed Gaming following structural problems, which were later explained in more detail in a statement issued by the players.
While looking for a new organisation, the team competed in the first European closed qualifier for DreamHack Masters Malmö, in which they were eliminated in the quarter-final stage following a 0-2 defeat against mousesports.
noKappa join AGG
The failed qualification campaign for the $250,000 tournament did not cool interest in the team, however, as the players have agreed to join AGG, who entered the esports scene only last month, when they signed the squad known as SKDC.
Along with the move, the North American organisation have confirmed that they will be pulling the plug on the Canadian team, who are at the foot of the region's ESL Pro League division, with a 0-10 record.
"We wanted to make a move to the larger stage," AGG co-owner Brandon Spearman explained in a statement.
"Picking up a roster in EU with a lot of promise, a nice track record, and multiple major appearance was a no brainer.
"These guys are not only great players but amazing people and we are very excited about the future with them."
In a separate statement, team member Karol "rallen" Rodowicz spoke of his excitement at finding a new organisation as they look to get back on track after failing to secure a spot at the MLG Columbus Major.
"I am very happy that we found a new home for us," he said. "They showed a lot of respect towards us.
"I think we found our dream organization to work with together."
AGG now have the following Counter-Strike squad:
