MANS NOT HOT, who have been playing without organizational support since late last year when the team formed, have now found a home in Imperial.
The European team, made up of Asger "AcilioN" Larsen and Jesper "TENZKI" Plougmann from Denmark, Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas and Žygimantas "nukkye" Chmieliauskas from Lithuania, and Nemanja "nexa" Isaković from Serbia, who had been playing under the name MANS NOT HOT, will now represent Imperial, who have been without a CS team since they let their Bulgarian lineup go last fall.
Imperial are currently a top 40 team, and peaked at #32 last month. With the support of an organization, the roster will now be able to focus solely on playing, which they will do starting with a one-week bootcamp before their trip to Copenhagen Games. Online, they will be playing Heroic in the quarter-finals of ECS's Challenger Cup next week, and are part of some smaller cups such as Hellcase Cup 7 and X-BET.co Invitational 2.
"We are really proud to finally announce our new home. We have been practising really hard and playing a lot of officials over the past few months. It has been a tough time, but thanks to Imperial we can now focus 100% on the game. Preparation for Copenhagen Games starts now and we will have one-week bootcamp before that."
Imperial's lineup is the following:
