CSGO2x sign ex-Publiclir
Skin website CSGO2x have completed the signing of the ex-Publiclir roster, HLTV.org have learned.
The Publiclir.se roster made waves at Copenhagen Games 2016, where the Swedish-Estonian team (attending their first offline event after having brought in Max "maxie" Lönnström in place of Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson) finished in 3-4th place, beating the likes of ENCE and CPH Wolves before losing to the event winners HellRaisers in the semifinals.
This result moved the team up to #30 in our Global Rankings for March. However, the team afterwards parted ways with the Publiclir.se organisation, stating that they were looking for a new sponsorship that could help them "go one step further."
ex-Publiclir have found a new home
Into the fray stepped CSGO2x, a skin website which has already supported some lineups on the fringes of European Counter-Strike, but which will now sign the more stable ex-Publiclir team and provide travel support and other amenities, HLTV.org understands.
Daniel "DomiNate" Garcia released a statement on the signing:
"We're looking forward to work with CSGO2x. We've known them for a couple of months now and they wanted to take a team under their wing and as we left our old organisation in order to find a new home and new opportunities. We felt like this was a great fit for us and we're looking forward to display good results under our new brand," Garcia said.
The CSGO2x roster is:
The team are next expected to see offline action at the ESPORTSM Finals, which will be held in Jönköping as part of DreamHack Summer in the month of June.
