TheMongolz swap two

TheMongolz, who recently attended IEM Katowice, have parted ways with Bold 'ncl' Batsuh and Otgonjargal 'Menace' Ganzorig while bringing on board two relatively unproven talents.

Although they had been making waves in the Asian scene for months beforehand, TheMongolz enjoyed a breakout moment when they defeated Renegades to win the Asia Minor and thereby qualify for both the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier and IEM Katowice.

Visa issues slighted the Mongolian players from attending the Major Qualifier (where they were drawn in a group that some have argued may have been an easy path to the Major), and IEM Katowice was not much of a promising showing either as the team lost all five of their group stage games convincingly.


Menace is one of two players to have stepped down from the squad

However, HLTV.org have learned from the team's manager that the straw that broke the camel's back was the DreamHack Masters Malmö 2016 Asia Closed Qualifier, to which the team had explicitly flown to Singapore in order to play with ideal latency conditions, where TheMongolz lost in the quarter-finals to Thai team Signature.

The disappointment with that loss precipicated the team parting ways with Bold "ncl" Batsuh and Otgonjargal "Menace" Ganzorig and bringing on board Erdenetsogt "element" Tengis and Batbayar "kabal" Bat-Enkh, as the team's manager explained:

"We travelled to Singapore to play in the DH malmo qualifier because playing from home on Singaporean servers we get around 90-120 ping, so we decided to travel to Singapore instead. But we lost and we were very disappointed in this loss.

We changed the roster therefore due to recent bad performance. Our two new additions are both 20 years old. They have very good aim but less experience. kabal was playing for a team called Core Gaming whereas element was teamless. There have not attained any well known success until now so they have a lot to prove.

Our upcoming competition plans include the Razer Rising Stars South-East Asian League and the mixBOT Golden League to which we are both invited."

As mentioned, both kabal and element are relatively unproven players, which can also be witnessed by their lack of statistics in our database.

The new TheMongolz roster is therefore:

Mongolia Enkhtaivan "Machinegun" Lkhagva
Mongolia Temuulen "Zilkenberg" Battulga
Mongolia Tsog "Tsogoo" Mashbat
Mongolia Erdenetsogt "element" Tengis
Mongolia Batbayar "kabal" Bat-Enkh

I just feel like you shouldn't take the name of one of the best CS players of all time. It's like if some motherfucker came and named himself potti, you know? Be a bit creative ffs.

He just the nickname "niko" tho.
2016-03-23 13:50
norwegian made an effort and created a brand from a word :) so I agree that it is not the same as just "element". same as if someone uses "Edward" as a nick then it is ok. but if Navi player kept using "edzie" and someone used it - that would look like a steal
2016-03-21 22:10
Same deal with ScreaM.
2016-03-21 23:37
I know, I get you.. I'm just trying to tell you that most of the people who are playing right now don't even know who he is, which is kinda sad but ye.. what can u do :)
2016-03-21 21:14
wtd man element is like one of the most basic words ever it's like making your nick killer or razor or idk
2016-03-21 21:47
tell that to ScreaM ^^
2016-03-21 22:05
What if some random fucker named himself potti without knowing that "potti" is a well-known player from 1.6 days? What if the random fucker has a surname "Pöttinger" so friends call him potti?
2016-03-22 00:17
dude if csgo was jus players from he cs brand then your comment would matter but its not so get over urself its 2k16
2016-03-22 00:22
i think it's ok to use the same nickname, what is the problem of it? i use shaGuar. friss nickname was f0rest at some point
2016-03-22 05:48
Well to be honest potti and element are a little bit different nicknames. Potti is something he came up with himself but element is common word. You know water is one element, fire is one, earth and air. Also there was a skating company called Element even before the player was good so jokes on you. Element stole the name of that company. What would you think if some player popped up to pro level suddenly with nickname Nike or Reebok?
2016-03-22 06:26
Element is a generic name though, Potti is more 'personalized'.

naming yourself "potti" would be weird, but using any common english word (name) as a nickname is legit, nvm if it's "forest", "element" or "roman"
2016-03-22 09:37
element is probably a more common name..and I'm going to guess at the age of 10 he wasn't watching CS (if #67's 10 year estimate is correct).
2016-03-23 09:47
