ex-x-kom join Illuminar
The ex-x-kom players that parted ways with their former organization after its merger with AGO have found a new home in Illuminar.
The former x-kom players that were brought onto x-kom AGO after the two Polish structures merged have found a new organization to play under days after announcing that they would no longer be part of the x-kom AGO project.
Paweł "innocent" Mocek's side will now play under the Illuminar banner, a Polish organization that currently have a League of Legends team in Poland's Ultraliga, and had a lesser Counter-Strike roster in the past.
The team will finally be at Games Clash Masters, as the spot they qualified for was given to x-kom AGO, but the ex-x-kom players were re-invited with the only caveat being that they needed to find an organization before the end of the month, something they have now done.
Other than their reintroduction into the Games Clash Masters team list, the Polish side is currently waiting for an opponent in the lower bracket of the UCC Summer Smash after losing to Tricked, and they will take part in the upcoming ESEA MDL season beginning in September.
Illuminar CEO, Michal Durczok, made the following statement:
“Wojciech “Tabasko” Kruza (former Illuminar LoL player, currently Ultraliga project manager) once said, that Illuminar is like a family. That’s exactly how we see esports and our organization. Today, our family accepts five motivated men, who want to fight together for their passion.
"Without passion, there’s no esports. CS:GO is a long-term project for us. Its aim is to establish stability and the possibility to compete with the best. There’s a lot of work ahead of us, but I think it’s worth to fight for what you believe in and that our mighty five will show what they’re capable of soon! Please welcome the new faces of iHG.”
Fryderyk “Veggie” Koziol, Head of Esports, had the following to say:
“Illuminar welcomes five motivated, amazing men ready to fight for each other’s backs. Esports is a dynamic industry and you have to be ready to make rapid decisions. The decision to sign the guys was the answer to the need of creating something new, but also consistent with the organization’s DNA.
"We believe that, along with five players, full of ambition, willingness to fight and bravery, we can create something special. In the upcoming days, we’re aiming to make the team feel at home, because it’s a long-term project to us and we hope they’ll stay with us for a long time. I myself can’t wait to watch the CS:GO matches and I hope that our fans feel the same.”
Illuminar's roster is:
