Ghost sign Bee's Money Crew

Ghost Gaming have announced that they have completed the signing of the team known as Bee's Money Crew.

The move comes as little surprise as the North American team had garnered a lot of interest in recent weeks with a series of great results in online tournaments.

BMC first made headlines at the end of March as they secured the final spot in the North American ECS division at the expense of compLexity, whom they beat 3-0 in the promotion stage.


 CONNOR93 & co join Ghost Gaming

More recently, the team qualified for the upcoming ESEA S24 Global Challenge, in Leicester, and earned the chance to secure promotion to the next season of the ESL Pro League via the upcoming relegation stage.

The team are now rewarded for their hard work as they have linked up with Ghost Gaming, a recently-created organisation that was looking to expand into Counter-Strike after bursting onto the Gears of War scene.

"After carefully examining numerous offers, we have finally decided to go with an organisation that is one hundred percent invested in our best interests," team manager Rahul Walia told HLTV.org.

"We are also one hundred percent invested in them and have full faith that they will help us grow as individuals as well as a team."

Ghost Gaming's team look as follows:

United States Andrew "ShoT_UP" Orlowski
Canada Matthew "Wardell" Bowman
United States Sebastian "seb" Bucki
United States Jason "neptune" Tran
Canada Connor "CONNOR93" Glover 

United States Phong "bee" Nguyen (coach)

the future of NA
2017-04-20 11:42
To be completely honest, they are probably one of the best NA teams out there right now
2017-04-20 11:44
+1 feels weird but true
2017-04-20 11:57
I mean really, Other than OpTic, Team Liquid, CLG, Complexity and Cloud9, they really are the best.
2017-04-20 11:58
im sure they could give any of those teams a good run for their money. looking sharp and motivated unlike some other NA top teams
2017-04-20 12:02
I mean they beat coL 3-0
2017-04-20 12:23
SK > RNG > rest of NA
2017-04-20 12:33
SK isn't a NA team.
2017-04-20 13:02
neither is rng
2017-04-20 14:02
neither is it better than na teams
2017-04-22 01:13
RNG lol yea they're better than c9 and liquid
2017-04-20 15:33

2017-04-20 16:39
Rng is ass
2017-04-20 15:37
did u not see BMC take SK to overtime? this team has so much potential and they're young too
2017-04-20 12:57
And neptune is only 15
2017-04-20 14:58
U r fku
2017-04-20 17:52
They are much better than Complexity imo,with much better potential tbh
2017-04-20 14:20
coL is absolute rubbish. People say the team is better now with Desi and Slemmy, I dont fucking think so. At least with APE, they managed top 8 at that Canadian LAN in September (Losing in very close fashion to EchoFox) and a top 4 finish at some Chinese LAN (losing to Heroic).
2017-04-21 02:39
I think Orlowski used to be a top MMA fighter a couple years ago, didnt really expect him to switch to gaming
2017-04-21 01:45
Wardell is gonna get poached and become Koosta #2, you heard it here first
2017-04-21 00:46
How is this even news?!?!?!

He became the coach but I would have loved to see him taking the leader position
2017-04-20 11:44
I'm sure that he thought that an up and coming player deserved a chance on a top NA team, so he was willing to give up his role as an active player so that ShoT_UP could get his feet wet in the semi-pro / pro CSGO scene. I'm looking forward to seeing how this team performs. They've always been a bit spotty in terms of performance, but for the most part have shown that they have the potential to play with the pros. It's nice to see a team with mostly young players because they are the future of CSGO, with 1 or 2 more experienced players guiding them along the way.

"The team are now rewarded for their hard work" Although "team" refers to a group of people, the word itself should be treated as singular shouldn't it?
2017-04-20 12:20
I think the use of singular verbs with collective nouns depends on the context of the sentence, so the sentence could either be "The team are now rewarded for their hard work" or "The team is now rewarded for its hard work" - the difference lying in whether or not the noun is being discussed as a singular entity. I believe both methods are acceptable, but it's an interesting point to mention.
2017-04-20 12:31
Seems that you are right about both being correct depending on the context for British English. I was under the impression that collective words such as team and group were to be treated singular. Probably because in Dutch those words should almost always be treated as singular. Although there are exceptions where it's plural or where it doesn't matter. LANGUAGE y u hef 2 b so difikult?!?!
2017-04-20 12:55
I don't even want to get started on how complicated grammar can be in Finnish - it's like English grammatical rules took methamphetamine, cartwheeled off a cliff and fell arse first into a barrel of geese. I totally get your point though. :p
2017-04-20 21:51
A barrel of geese. That... Sounds oddly specific.
2017-04-20 22:54
I speak England and think this is correct...
2017-04-20 14:48
Can confirm both are correct or, more accurately, neither sentence is wrong. Context is everything though. E.g. If you are talking about the players of the team, then you would more likely use the 1st sentence, "The team are now rewarded for their hard work" However, if you are talking about the org as an entity (rather than the people), you would likely use the second sentence, "The team is now rewarded for its hard work". I didn't care much for school, but my English teacher happened to be my head of year, so I had no choice but to learn this stuff! Also, being English kinda helps! :)
2017-04-20 18:23
Yeah, English has a bunch of odd rules I didn't quite understand at first when learning the language. Luckily I studied there for a year which helped me improve my command of the language significantly, although I definitely do still make mistakes.

Wardell biggest awp talent out there right now! But i guess i would have suggested to keep Bee as IGL. But who could do an amazing coaching as well, + he is a monster of a reserve player as well. I think this will be extremely good!

2017-04-20 13:42
Good to see the Asian scene growing up !
2017-04-20 14:26
Connor is a fucking monster, the most underrated player in NA ever
2017-04-20 14:36
I'd say he is a solid player for this team. He isn't amazing but he never performs poorly either.
