XigN joins NG

The Korean player follows in Anthony "⁠ImpressioN⁠" Lim’s footsteps as he becomes the second player to join the international team after leaving BTRG.

Thai organisation NG has announced that it has completed the signing of South Korean player Hyun-Pyo "⁠XigN⁠" Lee, who links up with his former BTRG teammate ImpressioN after the duo left the Chinese organisation citing a breach of contract.

XigN, who made his name with MVP PK and played several Big Events with the Korean squad, including ESL One Cologne 2019 and the 2018 and 2019 iterations of IEM Sydney, averaged a 1.17 rating during his nine-month stint with BTRG, who allegedly owe three months' salaries to players and staff.

XigN is teaming back up with ImpressioN in NG

More players are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks as the team hope to be up and running for the IEM Beijing-Haidan qualifier starting later this month. NG hope that this project will mark the beginning of a new era in Asian Counter-Strike and that squad will be able to "rival the best of the best in Asia or even the world stages in the coming year."

NG are currently:

Singapore Anthony "⁠ImpressioN⁠" Lim
Korea Hyun-Pyo "⁠XigN⁠" Lee

Sadly very true. The only arguably existing scenes are China and Mongol with Japan and South Korea having everyone in Valorant and South East Asia likes mobile games way too much, with a few exceptions doing DOTA

yeah bad timing it's sad af. I think they didn't go straight into it and only started like in 2016. Either way no chance to catch up after having lost those years. I dont think 1.6 players transition well to source mechanics, I dont think anyone has made it(like retire for 2 years then comeback still good)

exactly dude. He was source player. 1.6 completely different mechanics. I think its a miracle a few 1.6 players that were so mediocre in the game like pronax went on to major while Neo was struggling af. The only one immune to degradation was f0rest I think. Even karrigan straight away was relegated to IGL/support role even tho he was like a super star in 1.6 same with trace. Markeloff/Edward/Zeus etc all falter in the end so sad to watchc

most just gave up and not willing to put in hours to learn a "new" game, for example trace. f0rest doesn't even prac, he just has natural talent. He plays more dota 2 than cs:go in free time
2020-10-05 16:20
I’m confused? A ton of 1.6 player stats transitioned into CS:GO...? Only a couple players take a year or 2 off. Forest most certainly practices CS and didn’t rely on natural talent lol

BnTeT probably would love to stay where being a professional is more viable and he probably would be able to improve more easily there too with better teams and competitions. Kaze on the other hand, if he wants to play in an English speaking team. Idk tho he probably is comfortable too with Chinese comms. If he aint going I'd love to see splashke, but I just for some reason feel like xcc is the one coming here.

well said. nah kaze is fine with englando comms because we are so used to englando here. but xccurate is a little washed up tho, even on tyloo he wasn't that good and lost them important rounds. If xcc and splashke joins then wouldn't it be just the same as their previous team lol they won't achieve anything. Now freeman is another interesting prospect they could invest in but lots of peopel saying he is washed up but idk man

Yeah I wasn't saying Kaze wouldn't be comfortable with English, actually thought he'd be more comfortable with English. xcc is not showing good form, I agree with that too. splashke haven't had a real huge chance so I don't think he's like xcc. Freemans interesting tho when do we get to see him again

Yo le noob, At this point, I hope and it seems quite obvious that Olivia will join this roster. I'd say +forsaken and Freeman/Roninbaby.
