ex-Space Soldiers trio reunite in Turkey5

Engin "⁠MAJ3R⁠" Küpeli has announced that he has decided to create a new team alongside ex-Space Soldiers teammates Ahmet "⁠paz⁠" Karahoca and Engin "⁠ngiN⁠" Kor.

The 28-year-old returns to a Turkish team after an unsuccessful nine-month period on LDLC, the team he had left ex-Space Soldiers for in March 2019. In a Twitlonger post, he admitted to "missing playing with my heart, leading and having more responsibility".

His departure leaves LDLC with just two players and the team's future even more uncertain. Vincent "⁠Happy⁠" Schopenhauer's side ended 2019 by placing second at ESL Championnat National Winter and in WESG West Europe with Gaëtan "⁠JiNKZ⁠" Jamin and Simon "⁠tabz⁠" Feldt acting as stand-ins.

MAJ3R reunites with ngiN, paz and hardstyle in Turkey5

Joining the former Space Soldiers trio in this new adventure are Beyaz?t "⁠beyAz⁠" Körpe, who played alongside paz and ngiN on Demise, and Ekrem "⁠l0gicman⁠" Aydin, who impressed during his time with Arena Bulls, averaging a 1.24 rating across all tournaments.

MAJ3R hopes that this team can be a "version 2.0 of what we did with Space Soldiers", the team he notably led to back-to-back Major appearances in 2018 and to a runner-up finish at the WESG 2017 Finals.

Turkey5 are composed of the following five players:

Turkey Engin "⁠ngiN⁠" Kor
Turkey Ahmet "⁠paz⁠" Karahoca
Turkey Engin "⁠MAJ3R⁠" Küpeli
France Beyaz?t "⁠beyAz⁠" Körpe
Turkey Ekrem "⁠l0gicman⁠" Aydin

Turkey Canpolat "⁠hardstyle⁠" Yıldıran (coach)

There are two possibilities for you: 1- You don't know French and Turkish alphabet that you can't realise "ö,ü" letters doesn't exist in French. 2-You don't have ears I hope it's the first

I can move somewhere else and get a citizenship. I'm still a Turk living in XXX place and has XXX citizenship.
2020-01-06 01:50
nah, if you immigrated there then you'll be a XXX with turkish descent. that' like saying andrew yang isn't american because his parents are taiwanese
2020-01-06 02:59
andrew yang was born there, do you know what immigrated means?
2020-01-06 04:40
so if he will have kids and they will be born in France, they will still be Turks in your opinion becouse of 'blood' ? :DDD

L0gicman is actually an insane player, best of the Turkish talents. Surprised that they took Beyaz, he is a terrible player, maybe bring calyx back or someone like lurzb0b instead. They will show some success but no where like before (2017/18). Good Luck to them.

2020-01-06 11:14
Hardstyle and maj3r deeply analysed turkish players and as u can see wanted to play with those. Hardstyle said no one can just pick up 5 fraggers in team even they perform individually well they cant win in the end of the day. He said even u drop 40 bombs in fpl it doesnt mean u deserve to play with faze or any top30 team (some ppl claim that as a diss to turkish fpl players. (Also said tons of important things about gameplay, gamesense, anti-strats, roles but i dont remember rn) Hardstyle also said I feel comfortable with this team thats why i choose them.

paz is turkish snax i hope he returns his old times he was better than xantares at that times. he was so underrated i don't know why cs community supported xantares so much??? this is the best lineup and as a Turk, we should trust the GODstyle and GOD IGL maj3r.. Also why all idiot 15 yo kids hates beyaz that much? He isn't an IGL, but he tried his best. Now, he is in his own role, let's see what he can do in his own role.
2020-01-06 10:38
Before all he is a retarted player didnt u watch hım he was terrible ıf he is even an igl doesnt matter he is Just the piece of shit and if there is an igl he hasnt got a spot in this team

bro r u braindamaged? i'm telling that he wasn't an igl before he join the tr5. it was the first experience as an igl for him. we shouldn't blame him. you're still saying 'if there is an igl he hasnt got a spot in this team' wtf.. he is not an igl now, we'll see how he plays with a real igl.

He became "main awper" because there was no one else to use awp at Turkey5. He can just switch back to rifle. He is better with rifle anyway
