TuGuX joins ex-DarkPassage
Former Wild Fire and Space Soldiers member Tugay "TuGuX" Keskin has linked up with ex-DarkPassage, the player has confirmed to HLTV.org.
The Turkish veteran has been out of action since November, when he stepped down from Space Soldiers' active lineup as a result of a strained relationship with one of his then teammates, with the team then bringing in Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli on a trial basis.
After five months away from the scene, Tugay "TuGuX" Keskin returns to activity by linking up with Ufuk "SasuKe" Göktaş, Özgür "woxic" Eker and Muhammed "mini" Salman, all of whom free agents following the expiry of their contracts with DarkPassage.

Having parted ways with Bora "Maiko" Igci, the Turkish team currently have a four-man roster, with the fifth player due to be unveiled soon.
"After having a short break, during which I received some offers, I decided to join the former DarkPassage team," Keskin told HLTV.org.
"SasuKe contacted me, and we talked about what we could achieve with this lineup if we had the right mindset and passion.
"Turkey has great individual players and this team has the ambition to succeed by putting in a lot of work.

"If organisations or investors out there want to support us, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
"I would like to thank the fans who have been supportive of me, you are great."
