Renegades make CS return with Grayhound signing

Renegades have announced their return to Counter-Strike with the signing of the Grayhound roster.

The Australian team inked a deal with Renegades ahead of the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals and will have a baptism of fire under the new organisation as they will take on Astralis in their first match in Odense on Tuesday.

Renegades had been without a CS squad since late October, when their team was transferred to 100 Thieves. During their four-year tenure with the organisation, the squad, who also hail from Australia, had attended five Counter-Strike Majors, reaching the playoffs at IEM Katowice 2019 and at the StarLadder Major.

Renegades stick to Australian talent with the Grayhound roster

Grayhound entered the Counter-Strike scene with the signing of the ex-Immunity roster in June of 2017, three months after the launch of the organisation. After undergoing multiple changes, the team became a regular presence on the international circuit in 2018 and attended both Majors in 2019, when they also broke into the top 20 in the rankings.

In the announcement video, Liam "⁠malta⁠" Schembri hinted at the team staying in Australia through a phone call skit with Renegades owner Jonas Jerebko.

The new Renegades squad look as follows:

Australia Liam "⁠malta⁠" Schembri
Australia Ollie "⁠DickStacy⁠" Tierney
Australia Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong
New Zealand Simon "⁠Sico⁠" Williams
Australia Joshua "⁠INS⁠" Potter

yeah true. i just wish they would move to america so they can develop more skill over there in a better region plus they would easily be a top 2 mdl team over there and can probably qualify for for dreamhack events and small american events.

Yeah, and EG got the #2 spot after winning only 1 event on home soil. You may have noticed that HLTV rankings are deeply flawed. You get obscene amounts of points for the big events where you need to get invited. 100T get invited because they're Australian, not because they are good, and despite not playing very well always rack up points that boost their ranking, whereas teams that play better CS from other regions just don't get invited and thus have no chance to place as well in the rankings.

I agree that the HLTV rankings are definitely flawed, but calling 100T worse than the #15 EU team is a big exaggeration.

+1 100T is not the best team, but they are quite consistent and they look like a solid team. Something similar happens with Avangar.
