Machinegun returns to TheMongolZ

TheMongolZ have confirmed via Facebook that they have re-signed Enkhtaivan "Machinegun" Lkhagva.

The 26-year-old returns to the Mongolian team just five months after leaving it to further his career in North America with Splyce, who put together a roster with players from five different countries.

But Enkhtaivan "⁠Machinegun⁠" Lkhagva's time on Splyce ended up being short lived, with the North American organisation cutting ties with both him and David "⁠DAVEY⁠" Stafford and bring in two US-based players instead. 


Machinegun makes TheMongolZ return

Machinegun will step into the shoes of Temuulen "⁠Zilkenberg⁠" Battulga, who stepped down from the team's active lineup in November over reasons that were never disclosed.

The announcement comes a week after TheMongolZ finished 5th-8th in the Asian qualifier for DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, in which they fielded Erdenedalai "⁠maaRaa⁠" Bayanbat as a substitute.

TheMongolZ now have:

Mongolia Batbayar "⁠kabal⁠" Bat-Enkh
Mongolia Gan-Erdene "⁠dobu⁠" Batbold
Mongolia Bold "⁠ncl⁠" Batsuh
Mongolia Tsog "⁠Tsogoo⁠" Mashbat  
Mongolia Enkhtaivan "⁠Machinegun⁠" Lkhagva

Because MongolZ > Immunity ? Its his choice and money & location will certainly do the deal. > ( erkaSt, Zilkenberg, MachineGun, tsogoo, dobu ) erkaSt = Lurk Zikenberg = AWP MachinGun = IGL, Last Entry & 2nd AWP tsogoo = Revenge Fragger dobu = Entry Fragger - MongolZ would dominate asia alongside TyLoo & VGC.

How can you be that retarded i just stated mt opinions on the best Mongolian team possible, never said he should immediatly stop his study in AU and go play CS in Mongolia. I honestly fear for your brain idot.
2016-12-14 01:16
Please be realistic. Its not gonna happen if erkast go to mongolz. I think every mongolian wants him to be in the team but to be realistic, THATS NOT GONNA HAPPEN Learn logic idiot

2016-12-13 19:19
you know? NCL is best support player in Mongolz. current MONGOLZ line up is pretty decent. No need more toxic players. no need change anything for now. ZILKENBERG is toxic.
2016-12-14 09:31
where did u get that info? i heard his in game chat with his teammates it was not that toxic tbh
2016-12-14 09:41
But no Zilkenberg? so fucking stupid ... Mongolz will be worse than before when Machinegun left previously
2016-12-13 18:44
not really. Zilkenberg is toxic. Breaks team condition no need him.
2016-12-14 09:32
U guys talking bout zilk as if u would understand mongolian. Who says hes toxic. Hes actually the one who pumps up the whole team
