CR4ZY transfer roster to c0ntact Gaming

CR4ZY has officially confirmed their roster's transfer to c0ntact Gaming.

The announcement confirms two independent reports by HLTV.org, which revealed that CR4ZY agreed to sell their CS:GO team, and 1pv.fr, who reported on the identity of the buyer, c0ntact Gaming.

c0ntact Gaming is a new United States-based organization that owns two brands in the franchised Call of Duty World League and Overwatch League, Paris Legion and Paris Eternal, respectively.

ottoNd & co. will represent c0ntact from now on

They have now entered CS:GO for the first time with the acquisition of the CR4ZY roster, who are currently ranked 20th in HLTV.org's Team Ranking following successful campaigns at the last three DreamHack Open stops in Atlanta, Jönköping, and Sevilla, with two top-four placings and a runner-up finish.

With the team, c0ntact has acquired a spot in the New Legends Stage of the ESL One Rio Major, after CR4ZY's previous roster featuring Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković and Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač placed 9th-11th at the StarLadder Major.

"My first reaction was ‘there’s no way this is happening again.’ However, I also realized the opportunity for the players and decided this would be the best for them. I would never do anything to stop them from progressing in their career. We will be getting to The Major soon enough," CR4ZY CEO, Antonio Meic, said in a statement.

The Croatian organization intends to stay in CS:GO with a "soon-to-be-announced roster." A recent photo posted by the CEO, Antonio Meic, suggests Ivan "⁠Johnta⁠" Shevtsov will be involved with the new team in some capacity.

c0ntact now field the following team:

Lithuania Rokas "⁠EspiranTo⁠" Milasauskas
Serbia Nestor "⁠LETN1⁠" Tanić
Finland Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo
Serbia Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković
Bulgaria Georgi "⁠SHiPZ⁠" Grigorov

Ireland Neil "⁠NeiL_M⁠" Murphy (coach)

Biggest waste of money in the CSGO history lol they spent 2m $ on this roster according to sources lmao 2 000 000 $ for emi and letn1 and major spot where they will get 0-3 almost 100% just idiocy
2020-01-20 17:13
a team paid 1 million for immortal major spot but then kngV didn't get a Visa. That was wasted money. This here is only expensive but not totally wasted.
2020-01-20 17:18
yeah but you get Shipz , espiranto and otto so you "just" need an IGL and support and you have a legit top15 team maybe top 10 if u invest some money imo OG should have done the deal just add aleksib/valde and ISSA and you would habe a really good team

Its not a gamble, he can go on roullete and gamble this is an invesment they see espis,ottos,shipzes potential that someone can become a future star and they can profit off of them, also major spots bring in revenue, sponsors etc. Dont be stupid its a lie there is no money in the top tier of esports
2020-01-20 17:53
do u know that 90% of CSGO teams are unprofitable ? This guys just dont follow CSGO scene and dont know potential of the team This is failed project that will disbands after Major

this team was bought to compete in the franchise league, so actually 1.5 m for a solid 3 man core + major spot is actually a good deal Remember full teams cost more because of franchise league now

this is some cs 1.6 clan name type beat. actually a breath of fresh air with all the "professional" orgs who take themselves too seriously. it'll be fun if you see some kid from lithuania and few serbians with c0ntact gaming tag playing close series with elite teams
2020-01-20 18:33

Where is the time when the line up was: Nexa, Hunter, Espiranto, Otto and Letn1.. they were so close to become a tier1 team then! They just had to remove Letn1 and replace him with a player like: Frozen or someone else..
2020-01-23 19:02
The roster is kinda weak. 2 mil wasted :(
2020-01-24 17:22
Great rebranding lol I have high hopes to the roster.
