t0ks replaces Nami on Risky

Risky Gaming have announced that they have secured the services of Abdullah "t0ks" Al-Ghafari.

The 25-year-old, formerly of IMPULSE and Just Passing By, will step into the shoes of Abdulaziz "Nami" Al-Hammadi, who has been forced to leave the team to complete a 12-month conscription in the UAE military.

In a statement to HLTV.org, manager Mohanad "Menlem" Alkhodari praised Nami's role in making Risky an important name in the Asian Counter-Strike scene and stressed that the 19-year-old Nami will remain involved with the team, who recently won the Warrior UAE eSports Championship over Last Resort.


Nami steps down to serve in the military 

Risky qualified for the PGL KeSPA Asia Minor in April via the SEA regional, defeating Mongolian side NYSM 2-0 in the final. At the event in Seoul, the team finished third of their group following defeats against TyLoo and Renegades, and a win over MVP Project.

"We were all devastated when we heard that Nami was called up by the UAE Army to complete his one year training," Alkhodari told HLTV.org.

"He really helped us achieve goals and set a great standard for Team Risky. As one of the founders of Risky Gaming, I can tell you that Nami will definitely keep up with the team and support us as much as possible.

"As of now, we are proud to announce that t0ks will be stepping in to fill this gap that Nami has left. For sure, replacing the main awper in the team will lead to changing our in-game style a little, but we will try our best to do this as the team is extremely motivated like never before.

"We chose t0ks because of the tactical impact and firepower he is going to add to the team; he is the type of player that is consistent and that can perform under pressure.

"Going into the second half of 2016, we feel really close as a team and we are working hard. We will hopefully go even further with our dreams to be one of the top teams in Asia."

Risky Gaming now have the following lineup:

India Love "havoK" Paras

T0ks stated on his fanpage that he's from Palestine, not from UAE Still a decent change since Nami was thr Primary AWPer and they will have to change much in their gamestyle
2016-07-03 18:08
Wtf this news? I mean do every male in your country have to join military like south korea? And why did he choose that?
2016-07-03 18:19
Im from Palestine ;) the flags may seem similar But , yes everyone there before 20 has to do the 1 year military training, that's for Emiratis
2016-07-03 18:53
Its the same in Greece.

2016-07-03 21:34
there is a reason for that, swiz has army based on trained citizens, south korea is in war which never ended since 1950, finnish are fearing russians, at norway to prevent fagits play too much csgo, austria probably tradition to piss off ppl :D
2016-07-03 22:29
oh and uae doesnt have this kind of problems with iran and saudi arabia next to it right?
2016-07-03 22:30
you have, but they are solving it by immigrating to swedishstan etc. so there is no reason :D
