NeiL_M joins x-kom as coach

x-kom have announced that they have appointed Neil "⁠NeiL_M⁠" Murphy as the new coach of their CS:GO squad.

The Irish coach will step into the shoes of Adrian "⁠imd⁠" Pieper, who was relieved of his duties last week, becoming the first foreigner to guide a Polish CS:GO team.

NeiL_M, who was recently in Poland bootcamping with x-kom's squad, had been on the lookout for a new challenge since November, when he stepped down from Imperial after guiding the team to success at Copenhagen Games and DreamHack Open Summer.

NeiL_M returns to coaching with x-kom

He came close to moving to the United States at the start of the year but the deal fell through. In x-kom, he will communicate in English during tactical pauses, but the team will stick to Polish as their main language inside the server.

"Since I left Imperial, I had been looking for a project I would like to be a part of, and it seems that x-kom is what I was looking for," he said in a statement.

"A young team with strong support from the organisation, just like in Imperial."

x-kom, who are currently ranked 47th in the world, have been invited to compete at Good Game League 2019, a +$110,000 event that will be held in July in Poznan.

With NeiL_M's addition, the Polish team now have:

Poland Daniel "⁠STOMP⁠" Płomiński
Poland Krzysiek "⁠Goofy⁠" Gorski
Poland Oskar "⁠oskarish⁠" Stenborowski
Poland Michał "⁠mono⁠" Gabszewicz
Poland Grzegorz "⁠jedqr⁠" Jędras

Ireland Neil "⁠NeiL_M⁠" Murphy (coach)

i think your caps is broken, but you're typing upside down, just watch out. So strange that people have different opinions.... really ?
2019-03-12 18:31
You said something was cringe based on someone turning around, an action humans do on a daily basis. Idk in what world you'd have to live in for that to be cringe, but you do you I guess
2019-03-13 05:04
It made me laugh. I don't know why, the way the turned around with the music. The whole video almost gave me a seizure attack.

he's a trash coach anyways. He has 0 strats, just tries to hype the team up and win that way if possible. As a coach he's useless and the worst pickup possible for any team.
2019-03-11 18:23
not for fucking x-kom, they actually believed stark is somewhat relevant LUL
