Chinese social media giant Weibo is set to sign a roster based in Shanghai, according to a report from CSGO2ASIA.
If confirmed, the entry of the social media giant, which had around 497 million active users at the end of 2019, will mark a milestone moment for the game in Asia, where the active player base has steadily risen since the release of the Perfect World CS:GO client for the Chinese market in 2017.
The report states that the roster will include former EHOME and Invictus members QingHui "FIOURN" Kong and Tzu-Chi "Marek" Huang, as well as Russian native Egor "killmatic" Storozhok and ex-BTRG player ZhiTao "Drea3er" Zhang.
Sixteen-year-old Jason "f0rsakeN" Susanto, brother of Kevin "xccurate" Susanto, headlines the final spot on the team, with the young talent posting a promising 1.22 rating as a part of the Indonesian BOOM roster in 2019.
The roster is reported to be:
