bLacKpoisoN rejoins Bravado
Robby "bLacKpoisoN" Da Loca has announced that he has returned to South Africa, where he will play for Bravado Gaming once again.
The 23-year-old moved to Sweden in March 2015 with hopes of furthering his career in Europe after playing at the DreamHack Winter 2014 Major with Bravado.
However, due to having a full-time job he struggled to make a name for himself in the continent, winning just a handful of small online tournaments while playing for teams like nerdRage, HD4R and European Misfits.
bLacKpoisoN returns to Bravado
After little over a year abroad, Robby "blackpoisoN" Da Loca has decided to return to South Africa, where he will continue his career by playing for Bravado, replacing Richard "deviaNt" Groves, who has stepped down from the active lineup.
blackpoisoN will be hoping to use the experience he garnered competing in the FACEIT Pro League alongside Europe's finest players to help Bravado to reach international tournaments once again.
"My goal was to go to Europe for a maximum of 1 year and gain as much experience as possible so that I could come back home and help the boys out as much as possible," Loca said in a statement.
"Unfortunately I was not able to play for any official teams, but continuously scrimmed with individuals in mixed games of a high caliber.
"This was a problem for me as I was working full time from 07:00 to 18:00, so it was impossible for me to put more than 3/4 hours a day in CS.
"I managed to get quite a few offers but the only problem was these teams needed a player who can at least pay 6-8 hours of CS per day which was not possible for me, so my only option was to gain as much experience as possible through the Faceit Pro League (FPL).
"I made tons of great friends and I learned many new dynamics and I am very happy that I did this."
Meanwhile, Bravado have revealed their plan to hire "an individual from the international CS:GO scene" to coach the team, with more information on this matter due to be released soon.
With blackpoisoN's return, Bravado now have:
