ORDER acquire ex-Kings
ORDER have revealed that they will venture into Counter-Strike with the signing of the Australian squad formerly known as Kings.
The announcement brings an end to Chris "emagine" Rowlands and company's search for a new home after the lineup parted ways with Kings early last month. According to their LinkedIn page, the new Australian organisation ORDER launched in October 2017 and was founded by Leading Teams co-founder Gerard Murphy, who purchased a League of Legends team in the Oceanic Pro League before venturing into CS:GO.
Since late November, ex-Kings have been left without a fifth core member following Travis "wizard" Richardson's departure from the team. Contacted by HLTV.org, ORDER has confirmed that they have a player in mind and will announce their replacement soon.
The team's Australian members will represent their organisation's colours at WESG Asia-Pacific Regional Finals from January 11-14. Due to nationality restrictions for the event, Chiefs member Liam "malta" Schembri and Grayhound's Callum "BURNRUOk" Henderson have agreed to stand-in for Simon "Sico" Williams and their opening spot.
"I am so excited for what we are going to accomplish in 2018, both with our roster, and with this awesome organisation! I can't wait to show everyone what we are truly made of! Thank you so much to the guys at ORDER for giving us this opportunity and allowing us to stay together!"
"Incredibly excited to announce our Counter-Strike squad and with such a great core! 2018 will be a great year."
ORDER's current CS:GO roster is as follows:
