Cursive sign new team
Cursive have picked up a Danish team comprising several players from the old myXMG and SKB-EC lineups who were going under the name t4b in recent weeks.
In the early days of CS:GO, Cursive made a name for itself as an organisation which hosted Finnish talent, including at one point Aleksi "allu" Jalli, and with the organisation's final Finnish lineup parting ways in early 2014.
Cursive then had a few stints with relatively modest Danish lineups (once in late 2014 and once this June) but their ventures were relatively under the radar.
This time around however, the organisation have set their sights higher by signing the Danish t4b lineup which coincides with a total relaunch of their brand and website.
Three of the new Cursive players are formerly of myXMG, including PnX
Our sister site Dust2.dk reported on the formation of t4b two weeks back, with the lineup including several members from last year's myXMG lineup: Mathias "PnX" Pedersen (who in the early days of CS:GO played on teams with the likes of René "cajunb" Borg and Philip "aizy" Aistrup), Nicolaj "mupzG" Djurhus, and Kenni "wezx" Holmberg.
Cursive's new lineup is therefore:
DetlevSNitzEL released a brief statement on signing to Cursive:
"First of all, we are really happy to announce that we are teaming up with Team Cursive. We have been searching for an organization, since we launched under the temporary teamname t4b. I'm really happy to reunite with my old teammates, and the other players they took with them on their my.XMG journey. The future is ahead of us, and we are all looking forward to compete at a high level again."
Cursive will play their first match together in a few hours time while representing Denmark for the King of Nordic tournament. The team will also be competing in a Power-LAN Last Chance qualifier tomorrow, as the cheating situation which saw Seven11 get banned from the tournament has opened up a spot at the Danish event.
