Athletico has revealed their new lineup after losing their former roster to Tainted Minds three weeks ago.

The organisation has announced via social media that they have signed a new Australian team featuring players from Parallax, AVANT GARDE and Exile5. 

The most notable player on the team is Iain "SnypeR" Turner, who attended two CS:GO Majors previously (EMS Katowice 2014 and ESL Cologne 2015) under the Vox Eminor and Immunity brands, respectively. 


SnypeR back with a new team of fresh talent

Standing alongside SnypeR will be the AVANT GARDE duo, Iyengaran "IyeN" Raju and Bobby "zedzke" Johnson who both experienced a taste of the international scene last year finishing 5th-8th at the ROG Masters Asia event

The other two remaining players are former Parallax memberSam "jokes" Molan and Nikhil "NikkeZ" Victor, who has represented Chiefs and Exile5 throughout 2016. 

"Looking forward to playing with a great bunch of guys and compete under the Athletico brand. I cannot ask for a better support network," Turner told HLTV.org.

"The team's ambition is to win some qualifiers this year and travel overseas again. I'm hoping to return to the upper echelon of Australian Counter-Strike and make the long journey back to a Major for the third time."

Looking forward to playing with a great bunch of guys and under the Athletico brand you cannot ask for a better support network.

-Nikkez -Zedkze -Iyen +Havoc +Deoxide +TopGuN
2017-01-08 13:45
Havocs retired from CS and topguN has no interest in playing on a pro level anymore. Deoxide definitely, also destiny and dizzy. Both would likely be willing to leave Legacy to play with some of Australias best along with a ex-player run organization. If not, Iyen and Zedkze aren't really that bad. Nikkez and jokes are the real issues.

Why though? Hes one of Australias best and most experienced IGL's. Even if he doesnt find success with this team, he's still improving the inexperienced players around him

The thing is though he is still a better player than everyone on the team lol

Nikkez stats are all from Online competitions the lans he attends his team mates carry him. He's a Benchod who can't even get a positive KDR in big games. Guys a massive choker who was a competitive scrub in 1.6 and Source.
