The Swedish organization have started out 2017 with the signing of an ex-g3x and ex-CNB mix, with three players from the former team and two from the latter, who are set to move to Europe to compete.
After last year's not so successful attempts at getting back into CS:GO with Nordic and Bulgarian teams, the Swedish organization has announced a Brazilian roster which will move to Gothenburg, Sweden, where it will be able to make use of Orbit's offices and resources.
With Brazil's ABCDE focused on League of Legends and much of the CS scene feeling left out, and after g3x and CNB dropped their teams, this new lineup found a way to get out and have a shot at competing in the top region in the world.
Patrik Andersson', Orbit's CEO on the signing:
"I don’t think I have ever been so optimistic about a signing like I have of these 5 players. After an average 2016 in terms of results, all of the management cannot wait to re-enter one of the most passionate communities in esports and hopefully change our luck going into the new year. The squad are all passionate, respectful and truly know what it takes to become one of the best in the game. They will be traveling over to the offices to live and train here in Sweden, meaning they will also have the high quality practice the team needs to take it to the next level."
The old school mibr player nak, hailing from the remnant of CNB's lineup, also commented on the move:
"I could not be happier about starting the year by signing a contract with this fantastic organisation that is Orbit. Right from the beginning they have placed a lot of confidence in us and we really appreciate everything they’ve done already. Orbit is in a phase of expansion and growth, which fits perfectly with our momentum and we are looking to utilise both situations and create something special. It is an opportunity we’ve all wished and we shall grab it with all our strength. Expect our team to have lots of dedication and show our passion for this beautiful game."
