oW^ joins Giants
Giants Gaming have announced that they have secured the services of former Magistra player Oliver "oW^" Winther.
The announcements brings the player count on the team up to six, allowing them to mitigate the impact caused by the academic commitments of some of their members.
Oliver "oW^" Winther will reunite with Rubén "TorPe" Jesús Gómez Rodríguez after playing alongside the Spanish player for a brief period on TheTeamWithoutOrg, an international roster that also featured British veteran George "hudzG" Hoskins.
With the Danish player's signing, Giants hope to overcome a poor run of form that has seen them get knocked out of the CEVO Main playoffs in the first Lower Bracket round and win just three of their first six matches in the ESL Masters, a €22,000 tournament featuring the best Spanish teams.
"I am very happy and excited to get this opportunity from the Giants family," Winther said in a statement.
"I have practised with the team already, and I believe we can do great things in the future.
"They are all very talented, both individually and as a team. I feel fortunate to have been invited to join this team, and I will give my best for them."
Giants currently have the following six-man roster:
Jonathan "MusambaN1" Torrent
Rubén "TorPe" Jesús Gómez Rodríguez
Raúl "DeathZz" Jordán Nieto
Javier "Vasili" Huélamo Gracia
Iván "NaOw" González
Oliver "oW^" Winther
Ovidio "OvaX" Gómez (coach)
