ALTERNATE aTTaX sign k1to
Nils "k1to" Gruhne has inked a deal with ALTERNATE aTTaX, the organisation has revealed.
Nils "k1to" Gruhne joins Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen's team after nearly one year on Berzerk, with whom he most recently won the iiyama CS:GO Home Masters #3 Finals, and achieved a 3rd-4th place finish at ESL Meisterschaft Winter 2017.
In a statement, ALTERNATE aTTaX Deputy General Manager Stephan "Scars" Barth admitted that finding a replacement for tiziaN was not an easy task, and praised the team's newest member.
"After the rather sudden departure of tiziaN we had to find a quick replacement - which wasn’t that easy, since there aren’t a lot of players available on German soil at the moment," he told HLTV.org.
"We had taken note of k1to previously and after talks with Nicolai (HUNDEN) and the team, we decided to try him out.
"Practice matches and officials went well, and, since he is still very teachable, I am confident that Nicolai and Torbjørn (mithR) will be able to integrate him into the team. I thank Berzerk for agreeing on the transfer on such a short notice."
"After six months of playing for Berzerk it's time for a new challenge," he said. "First of all I would like to thank Berzerk and especially tahsiN for the last few months. He was the best teammate you could think of.
"But the decision to leave Berzerk is still the right one. In ALTERNATE aTTaX, I have the opportunity to improve and also get to compete internationally. I thank ALTERNATE for their trust and I'll try to fill the gap of tiziaN as well as possible."
