Athletico have made adjustments to their squad by removing three members. Former Immunity 1.6 veterans Mark "deStiny" Kagan and Gareth "gazR" Lynn have been announced as their temporary replacements.
Following a disappointing 5-6th finish at the IEM Katowice 2018 Oceania Closed Qualifier, accompanied by a poor start in ESEA MDL Season 27 Australia, Athletico has decided to end their relationships with Mohammed "MoeycQ" Tizani, Jesse "InfrequeNt" Barker, and the coach Alex "MAGIKKK" Langusch.
The Australian organization has revealed on Twitter that the veteran package duo, Mark "deStiny" Kagan and Gareth "gazR" Lynn will fill in for the CS:GO squad temporarily. deStiny was last seen standing in for Tainted Minds during Season 26 of ESEA MDL last year in November, while his VAC-banned comrade gazR has been out of action since late 2016.
Now teamless, MoeycQ is currently seeking a new team, whereas the other two ex-members have remained silent about their future. Besides improving on their 2-4 record in ESEA MDL, Athletico have the upcoming CyberGamer Premier League Autumn league on their schedule, with their first match against Corvidae set to kick off next week.
Athletico's roster is now:
#CSGO | Thank you @InfrequeNtcs, @MoeycQ and @MAGIKKKKKKK for your time and commitment to Athletico.— Athletico (@AthleticoES) February 10, 2018
We wish you all the best of luck for the future. 💛
GazR & deStiny will fill-in for the meantime. 👊#ATHWIN pic.twitter.com/CQdUteocVk
