Infused unveil new roster

Team Infused have announced their return to Counter-Strike with a new roster.

With the Gfinity Elite Series, a professional league featuring the best players in the United Kingdom, just about to start, Infused have put together a new roster as they hope to establish themselves as a dominant force in the country once again.

James "redSNK" Littlewood, who has spent most of his career representing Infused, returns to lead the new team alongside two other veterans, Sam "RattlesnK" Gawn and Aaron "AaroN" Hemmings, formerly of mousesports and 4Kings, respectively.

RattlesnK returns in Infused

Mick "MCK" McDonald, who has played for teams such as United Estonia and CAZ in the past, is the fourth British member of the roster, which is completed by Robin "robiin" Sjögren, who was last seen playing for Manatee in the BYOC qualifier for Copenhagen Games.

The Swedish player is no stranger to competing in the UK, having represented Infused and fm-eSports in the past, winning Multiplay Insomnia 57 and 59.

"I am thrilled to be back apart of Team Infused for 2017, playing alongside good friends and strong players with the support of Team Infused," redSNK told Infused's website.

"As a team we have to work hard and focus on qualifying for the UK Masters, ESL Premiership and prepare ourselves for the Gfinity Elite Series later this year.

"With the support of Gfinity, UK teams such as ours are given such a special opportunity to challenge and develop not only as a team but individually, instilling a confidence in being a part of the wider CS:GO scene.

"I cannot thank Andy and Alan enough for their continuing support and faith in being able to achieve our goals."

Infused's new CS:GO roster consists of:

United Kingdom James "redSNK" Littlewood
United Kingdom Aaron "AaroN" Hemmings
United Kingdom Sam "RattlesnK" Gawn
United Kingdom Mick "MCK" McDonald
Sweden Robin "robiin" Sjögren

Thats the point. We're not winning but we're attending. It's better to attend and never win (not even get out of groups even) than to not be there at all.
2017-05-18 12:30
Hate hearing this, you do realise NA have their own qualifiers. Would be interesting to see how many NA teams would even make it through RO64 in EU qualifiers without invites. Not saying UK > NA because ideally it probably isn't. Soz all im triggered, bye now.

NA has its own OPEN qualifier. But don't forget NA has to go to a closed LAN qualifier where the best teams from all the other open qualifier regions will also attend. That's why we've had years where no NA team has attended a major AT ALL. It would be interesting. I think the top NA teams wouldn't bomb out like all the European superiority complexes suggest. Teams like NRG and CLG might be HellRaisers level and lose to the top NA/EU teams but get carried by winning against the lesser EU teams. I have nothing against the UK and I think the UK CS meme is overrated. It was just butthurt self defence from the truth and I replied with something irrelevant and unnecessary. Sorry if I offended you.

Actually complexity might have won a major in 1.6.. need to check

maybe they should consider adding some talent to the roster? mantuu would be an obvious try considering they're british, he's 10x better than anyone on that roster and could become better with time just another team recycling old players and they'll stay tier 3 at best for infinity.

No wonder this article has so many comments; most people are making UK CS jokes. I dunno... I've waited for rattlesnK to make his grand comeback since the beginning of CS:GO now, and it still hasn't really happened
2017-05-17 02:55
At the beginning of CS:GO mousesports were pretty decent and one of few teams that could give NiP a close game. But that was 2012, I doubt any team in the UK will come close to top20 in the next 2 years.

Shame all these veterans keep trying to play the game, only Aaron still has insane skill, get rid of Rattlesnake and Redsnk and get some young talents in EG) sm00ya and jenko or something. I wish these old players would fuck off and give the new uk players a better platform to compete in europe.
