Domsterr to try out for Denial; eNergy part ways

eNergy's players have decided to disband the team as Dominic "Domsterr" Sampaio will travel to North America to play with Denial.

Robby "blackpoisoN" Da Loca's eNergy, who won back-to-back MDL seasons in South Africa and played at events like PLG Grand Slam in Abu Dhabi or DreamHack Mumbai, have disbanded after Domsterr revealed he would be flying to North America to join Denial ahead of their WESG World Finals run.

Domsterr will fly to North America to play with Denial for the time being

Gareth "MisteM" Ries will be taking the reins of the academy team, joining them as they become the main CS:GO roster in the organization, while blackpoisoN, Rieghardt "flexeeee" Romatzki, and Trevor "kaNibalistic" Morley will go their separate ways.

Domsterr will rejoin Johnny "JT" Theodosiou and Rhys "Fadey" Armstrong, two old teammates from his time in carboN. He will do so on a trial basis, playing MDL and whatever qualifiers may arise before WESG, although Tiaan "T.c" Coertzen revealed to HLTV that no decision regarding a permanent fifth will be made until after the event in China.

After Dimitri "Detrony" Hadjipaschali left the team when they moved from Bravado to Denial, and with Domsterr now joining the squad, Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek will once again pick up the AWP full time as the team adjusts to changes in the starting five.

With Domsterr trying out, Denial's roster is now:

South Africa Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek
South Africa Johnny "JT" Theodosiou
South Africa Rhys "Fadey" Armstrong
South Africa Ruan "ELUSIVE" van Wyk
South Africa Dominic "Domsterr" Sampaio (trial)

South Africa Tiaan "T.c" Coertzen (coach)

I heard he isn’t exactly on the best terms with a lot of the ex-bravado guys, he was kicked a month or two before they moved to America.
2019-02-08 23:31
Yeah, there is definetely something still going on
2019-02-09 12:05
-elusive +blackpoison -fadey +flexee then youd have the top 5 SA players elusive is pretty trash imo

That would be a change for the better but i think elusive is better than flexee. So just the blackpoison/fadey change and they would be much stronger
2019-02-09 05:52
i honestly dont think so hes not even the IGL and he barely goes positive hltv.org/stats/players/matches/8446/ELUS.. felxee has carried a lot of games, never seen elusive done it fadey has carried a few games at least especially for being an entry fragger, his stats are good

2019-02-08 19:06
Yup, they went and left Detrony behind. The team was doing good as a whole, Detrony should've joined with the rest of the team in all honesty. Their success was most likely just around the corner when we look at how they were doing. Let's see if they find a good fit and get back on track.

South Africa Success Pick one
2019-02-09 15:51
Picking both as the thing that amounts to success is motivation, hard work and of course the level of opposition you're able to face. Since they're out of South Africa playing against premier-level teams and their work ethics, motivation and synergy seemed to be on a good level, all they needed was to break through. Now they lose that synergy but if they don't lose their motivation and find their synergy, they'll most likely bounce back. They just took a step back as a whole.
2019-02-10 16:58
Reaching the top for the most motivated and glued-together group of players won't be nothing but grinding until you're there, you've always got the upper hand considering their playstyles and strategies can be more thoroughly dug through and prepared for. It's always harder to hold the throne then achieve it as the pressure amounts on you and your performance and others get more material and motivation to study what you do and the reasoning behind your actions. Obviously, in how fast you reach the said top has many variants which can't be defined in advance. That's when you need to actually have the motivation to grind on and it'll be hard. You'll reach your goal eventually.

Not at all , blackpoison is a very toxic player ,, played with and against him a few times on faceit , decent at best ,, Denial should have rather had a look at Dyvo or flexeee much younger and better overall players , i guess they are looking for experience .
