This is what Mark "Princess" Weller from Vexed Gaming had to say about the signing:
"We are very excited to announce our return to Counter-Strike, Today, we announce our new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, we have found a team that have both great potential and the motivation to make it back to the big stages. Our recent supportive partnership with We Got Game and a change in management has allowed us to acquire their previous roster and we cannot wait to see what we can achieve together."
Victor "Roombang" Henkinet added his own thoughts on the move to Vexed:
"After last ESWC and thanks to our win streak there, we manage to enter the HLTV rankings at the 29th spot and I said during an interview that we were hoping to stick together given our humble success there. But we were lacking an organization able to bring us to the next stage. Signing today with Vexed Gaming is a huge opportunity for the team. Knowing their last team managed to qualify for two majors is a big motivation for us, and even though we’re a young team, we are eager to prove we have what it takes to do as good or even better. We know this will ask a lot of work and we hope we can live up to our own expectations. Thanks again to Vexed Gaming for their support."
