MANS NOT HOT's players have announced that they have decided to stick together after impressing in their first tournament together.
The European team, headlined by former dignitas duo Asger "AcilioN" Larsen and Jesper "TENZKI" Plougmann, gave a good account of themselves in the closed qualifier for DreamHack Winter, beating Vega Squadron and SuperJymy before being eliminated by Space Soldiers in the semi-finals.
The Danish duo are joined by another famed player in Nemanja "nexa" Isaković, who returned to Europe in the summer following a four-month tenure in North America with Renegades, during which the team won the Asia Minor leading into PGL Major Krakow.
Rounding out the roster are two Lithuanian players, 16-year-old Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas and 23-year-old Nikolaj "kalinka" Rysakov. The latter, who attended the CIS Minor ahead of ELEAGUE Major, last year, with VwS, recently played for Natus Vincere in the European qualifier for WCA 2017.
"We are happy to announce that we are creating this new team together," the team said in a statement to HLTV.org.
"We have already been practising for two weeks now, and we have been improving a lot. Everyone is really motivated and ready to show their potential!
"We are very confident in our ability to climb the rankings and, hopefully, you will soon see us in the top 30 list. We are looking for an organization to represent, so, if you think we are the team you need, please contact our manager, Neil, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
