Ancient create GODSENT
Ancient have announced that they have decided to start their own organisation called GODSENT.
Created by Markus "pronax" Wallsten shortly after his release from fnatic, Ancient have slowly clawed their way into the upper echelon of the Nordic scene, and lifted their first title at the end of February, when they won the Pantamera CS:GO Challenge, in Stockholm.
After playing without any kind of support for several months, the team have now decided to create their own brand, following in the footsteps of the former TSM squad, who created Astralis at the start of the year. In this case, however, GODSENT will be co-owned by just two people, pronax and a capital investor called Toms Martin.

The Swedish team will make their first offline appearance under GODSENT next week, at DreamHack Masters Malmö, for which they qualified via the online tournaments.
"We have been working super hard since the beginning of 2016 to find a working lineup that everyone in the team could be happy with, not only that," Wallsten said in a statement.
"We also made an somewhat unconventional decision to not join up with an established organisation, instead we wanted to create a brand that we players can be proud of, a brand that we still would like to play for years to come.
"And the result of that is Godsent."
GODSENT have the following line-up:
