ATK to make major roster overhaul with Sonic, oSee, floppy - Report

ATK will no longer have a majority South African lineup following the replacement of three players, according to a report by Rush B Media.

Rhys "⁠Fadey⁠" Armstrong, Robby "⁠blackpoisoN⁠" Da Loca, and Dominic "⁠Domsterr⁠" Sampaio are set to make way on the roster, with the team bringing back Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek following a previously reported departure from Envy.

The remaining two spots on the team will be filled by Singularity duo Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm and Ricky "⁠floppy⁠" Kemery, reuniting the players with former teammate Ian "⁠motm⁠" Hardy. In-game leader Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou will remain on the roster as he himself reunites with Sonic.

oSee and floppy are set to link up with ATK

ATK had the upper hand over Singularity in ESL Pro League Season 9 Relegation, but were unable to qualify for EPL Season 10 Americas following a narrow defeat to Envy in the grand finals. Singularity have been unable to qualify for EPL themselves, and were eliminated from contention at the StarLadder Major Americas Minor by Sharks, adding to a lacklustre run of results for the team.

The reported move would leave ATK with just two South African players, giving the team its first American core. The proposed lineup would look as follows:

South Africa Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou
United States Ian "⁠motm⁠" Hardy
South Africa Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek
United States Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm
United States Ricky "⁠floppy⁠" Kemery

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

? Sonic = AWPer osee = AWPer <--- 99% becoming 2nd AWPer floppy = Rifler JT = IGL / Rifler motm = Rifler They are 2 main AWPers. My guess is that osee will 2nd AWP. To be honest i wished they picked hydrex from Singularity over osee for this team.
2019-09-04 03:27
sonic wasn't always an awper, he had to become one for his team, oSee will probs primary
2019-09-04 03:57
Well, Sonic is still good as a main AWPer tbh. And like i said, i wished they picked hydrex over osee.
2019-09-04 03:59
Hydrex is on the new Chaos team with Rush, Steel, Infinite and Natosaphix
2019-09-04 04:29
I know that now.

I mean...nice...but, why the f would you kick/bench Domsterr? Nice seeing Floppy in ATK though.
2019-09-04 03:22
He probably chose to leave with his teammates, I reckon
2019-09-04 09:43
Actually not bad. Lots of potential. Motm has been a fucking beast here lately! Good move getting sonic back! Will be fun to watch these guys grind out a spot! Good luck!

Finally floppy will have a better chance...
2019-09-04 03:36
Still not sold on JT rather see a marke if I'm not mistaken osee has IGLd before right?
2019-09-04 03:37
def a downgrade from singularity
2019-09-04 03:36
I would have loved to see hydrex instead of oSee but whatever... this team look better than Singularity anyway lul Singularity freakazoid incoming POG
2019-09-04 03:43
Shake was a good IGL :(
2019-09-04 06:35
Singularity wasnt good overall but I would have loved to see Shakezullah joining coL, maybe with a more experienced player he could have improved as IGL, NA CS kinda lacks young IGL's
2019-09-04 06:55
actual good roster but sonic is kinda a weird pick i would rather blackpoison
2019-09-04 03:53
Wtf?
2019-09-04 04:07
sonic throws so many fucking rounds, its not even funny guys an idiot
2019-09-04 04:04
You shut your mouth loser Envy fan. Sonic will rekt you.
2019-09-04 13:00
I read azk at first
2019-09-04 04:13
AZK he is the north american player but the Titan he is the french stars
2019-09-04 05:34
Good luck to the new ATK. Really disappointing for the returning SA lads. Good luck in your future endeavours.
2019-09-04 06:16
lmao is this supposed to be good, hltv get out of here.
2019-09-04 06:59
wasted
2019-09-04 07:46
Is this still a SA team or is it now an NA team
2019-09-04 07:47
Did they just try do a complexity move. Should Drop JT (pushes ramp and doesnt learn) and Floppy Bring back Blackpoison and Domsterr Much better balance in team
2019-09-04 09:11
imagine reapergp tuning JT ahahahaha
