Denial sign Bravado quartet, coach
The news comes a couple of days after Bravado put up a Tweet asking people to stop donating to their crowdfunding campaign. Joining Denial will be Bravado's former coach Tiaan "T.c" Coertzen and all of the players except Detrony—whose brother Andreas "cent" Hadjipaschali is the CEO of the South African organization.
"It is important to mention, all players were notified that the campaign was on course to reach its target (at the time sitting at 60% of the fixed goal) as there was a corporate sponsor who was willing to pay in the case of any shortfall (40% of the fixed goal) for the organization in order to ensure the campaign was a success.
"Therefore, we want to make it clear that this decision was purely on the players to cancel the campaign and accept the offer they received from their new organization. We want you to know that this is no reflection on the ethics of the Bravado brand and its management. We want to ensure that everybody who contributed to the campaign will be refunded."
"On this note, the management would like to apologize on behalf of Bravado to all its fans, supporters and ESPECIALLY all the donors during it’s Indiegogo fund-raising campaign – management realizes how this can reflect badly on the organization, especially after the concerted effort of many high-profile players in the community coming together to assist us in reaching this goal."
However, after almost a year without a CS team, the organization resurfaced under new ownership at the end of 2018 with their first goal being to pay back the players what they owe. The South African squad will be Denial's first CS:GO team since the change of ownership.
Denial currently has four players and a coach:
