nerdRage round out lineup
nerdRage have added a Belgian and a Dutchman to fill out a true pan-European lineup in CS:GO.
The organisation nerdRage attained prominence (and some fair share of notoriety) last year by fielding a heavily online lineup that included the likes of Joel "jOELZ" Aalto and Viliam "villiG" Andrascik with the latter player being dropped due to being caught cheating in a European qualifier for DreamHack Cluj-Napoca.
After moving on to less-tainted fields, such as supporting a team of Danish players including Oliver "minet" Minet, the organisation finally settled on supporting teams in the UK scene and closed out the year.
CRUC1AL reunites with old teammate kajsk1ng on the new nerdRage lineup
After a period of extreme roster instability which included losing their old roster, signing Infused's roster, and then losing 19-year-old Kia "Surreal" Man to Complexity, nerdRage have announced a new finalised roster that stretches across Western Europe and includes players from far and wide.
The roster includes the core of the old Infused lineup in the form of Josh "mole" Rowley and coach Neil "NeiL_M" Murphy in addition to countryman Aaron "AaroN" Hemmings and Dutchman Joey "CRUC1AL" Steusel, who previously played for fm-eSports.
Saturday's announcement meanwhile saw the roster completed with the addition of Belgian Fréderic "Monu" Dewever, who has been inactive on the larger scene for some time, and Dutchman Kaj "kajsk1ng" van Staalduinen, an old teammate of CRUC1AL's and someone who was last seen playing for Playing Ducks.
nerdRage's lineup is therefore:
