ATK to play in ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas - Report

ATK are set to fill one of the two vacant spots in Group C of ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas, according to a report by Dust2.us.

The move would see the squad fill one of the two empty slots in the league that were left vacant following the disbanding of the Ghost and ex-Luminosity rosters. Liquid and Renegades are the other two sides that make up the group, with ESL yet to announce what team - if any - will fill the remaining spot.

The reported selection of ATK follows the team's runner-up finish in ESL Pro League Season 9 Relegation, where they narrowly fell to Envy in the best-of-five grand final to miss out on a chance at a move-up. The sole American on that iteration of the ATK squad was Ian "motm" Hardy, although roster changes soon after the event saw the team part ways with a trio of their players to make the transition to a majority-American lineup.

floppy is reportedly set to play his first EPL season

The additions of Josh "oSee" Ohm and Ricky "floppy" Kemery from Singularity will offer the duo the opportunity to play their first Pro League season should the team's attendance in the league be confirmed, with the latter player having fought through 12 seasons of MDL without being able to achieve promotion.

Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek and ATK in-game leader Johnny "JT" Theodosiou would also play in their first EPL season, while motm has already had the opportunity after standing-in for eUnited in place of Kaleb "moose" Jayne during Season 9.

The groups for ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas now reportedly look as follows:

Americas:

ESL Pro League Season 10 will commence on Tuesday, with Group C set to run from October 14-16.

Look the ATK management Is amazing for doing what they have done in such a short time span. But a lot of players in SA feel the same way you do and want the ZA flag back but sadly the talent in ZA at the moment needs a lot of development and the speed ATK is advancing at the moment there simply is no time to bring up and train new ZA talent to fit the team. Even thou personally I think FADY would be a better fit in the team than some of the new additions. But like everything team politics and player personality's get in the way of making great teams.
