Dude I was wondering about create an org to compete with the following players: Swag (take him from GX) Hiko (take him from tier3-4 Rogue) n0thing (benched on CLOUD9, he would have much more utility out of there) shroud (same case as n0thing) Koosta (unemployed right now hahaha) In case you guys are in doubt about swag (since he is banned by Valve) we could go with naHte, who is in the same situation as koosta. Trust me, practicing togheter they would reach tier1 easily. Thats just a dream I have hahahaha
