CRUC1AL joins defusekids

Just days after Joey "CRUC1AL" Steusel announced he was parting ways with Splyce, the Dutch AWPer returned to Europe and will play in the Benelux team defusekids.

The announcement of Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel leaving Splyce came just four days ago, as the player himself tweeted he and the North American organization would be parting ways. CRUC1AL was the last player of Splyce’s attempt to form an international lineup after Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen’s departure.


CRUC1AL will ply his trade in defusekids after his North American sojourn

CRUC1AL will come home to defusekids, a new team under a revived banner, where he will find the familiar faces of Kaj "⁠kajsk1ng⁠" van Staalduinen and Fréderic "⁠Monu⁠" Dewever, as well as Gido "⁠G1DO⁠" Brouwer and the youngster Vincent "⁠v1N⁠" Brouwer. We got statements from both CRUC1AL and kajsk1ng to know more about this new project:

"After just over 7 months i've decided to return home to Netherlands. I learned a lot in many different ways in Splyce which I hope to bring to my new team going forward. I've decided to join a Dutch team which I feel has alot of potential with time. We will start by bootcamping for 1 week before attending Copenhagen Games next month. For expectations we will train a lot (5 days a week, 6-7 hours a day). Hopefully with time we will see the results come through. I believe a lot in this team over time to hopefully have a competing Benelux team on the map!"

- Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel

"We have decided to revamp an old name to create our own player-owned organization. Picking up Joey is the next step in realizing our dream to develop a relevant team with players of our own region. The next step in doing that is attending Cph Games and competing in all online qualifiers."

- Kaj "⁠kajsk1ng⁠" van Staalduinen

defusekids’ lineup will consist of:

Netherlands Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel
Netherlands Kaj "⁠kajsk1ng⁠" van Staalduinen
Netherlands Gido "⁠G1DO⁠" Brouwer
Netherlands Vincent "⁠v1N⁠" Brouwer
Belgium Fréderic "⁠Monu⁠" Dewever

Can we really consider tier 3 pros?
2017-03-17 15:59

All pro means in CS Go is your getting paid to play the game and since those shitters are getting paid to play CS Go then they're pros, obviously there are exceptions to this rule but for the most part I consider anyone who is competing at some level of CS Go and being paid salary to do so as a pro player.
