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.

Alongside long-time companion gazR, deStiny will fill in for Athletico

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:

Australia Sam "flickz" Jones
Australia Mitchell "Sync" Dale
Australia Nikhil "NikkeZ" Victor
Australia Mark "deStiny" Kagan (stand-in)
Australia Gareth "gazR" Lynn (stand-in)

Just in the past 2 weeks Astralis, North, North acad, Reason and OpTic have made changes to their rosters. Maybe even heroic if the report is right and you say AU cs making changes is a joke. While in AU scene two have made changes being Renegades and Athletico (if you count RNG) and one team has a new roster (like your OpTic) If that's enough for AU to be a joke then Denmark must be king of sucking Joker's cock.
