erkaSt joins NG

The 25-year-old steps out of the Mongolian scene to join NG's Asian roster.

NG continue to add to their international roster with the signing of another high-profile player in the Asian scene, Erdenetsogt "⁠erkaSt⁠" Gantulga, bringing the player count in the starting lineup up to four, each one of them from a different country.

Now a household name in Asia, erkaSt first made a name for himself in Oceania, where he was part of the Grayhound squad that played at IEM Sydney in 2018 and 2019, made two ESL Pro League Finals and competed at the IEM Katowice 2019 and StarLadder Berlin Major's New Challengers Stages.

erkaSt will play under the NG banner from now on

The Mongolian player then had to return to his home country after not being able to secure a work visa in Australia following the StarLadder Major, where he achieved moderate success with TIGER, winning the first Regional Major Ranking tournament, the Weibo Cup Asian Championship and making the final of the latest RMR tournament, Perfect World Asia League Fall.

Since returning to Mongolia erkaSt has accrued a 1.15 rating and has had strong performances at all of the RMR tournaments with a 1.20 rating at ESL One: Road to Rio Asia as well as 1.19 and 1.14 ratings at the PAL Summer and Fall events, respectively.

“For the past year since Grayhound, I’ve been playing with and giving my experiences to my fellow Mongolians and the community there as a player", erkaSt says, "but from today onward, I’m very excited to call NG a new home and really looking forward to play with my new teammates and the journey ahead of us. Thank you for all your support and especially NG for giving me this opportunity!"

NG are now:

Singapore Anthony "⁠ImpressioN⁠" Lim
Korea Hyun-Pyo "⁠XigN⁠" Lee
Thailand Thotsaphon "⁠cbbk⁠" Suphatthanaphalaphon
Mongolia Erdenetsogt "⁠erkaSt⁠" Gantulga

Could be a decent team internationally, and should be pretty damn good in Asia. Pretty sure the 5th will be xccurrate. Looking good.

Basically for the last three months they play for btrg, they didn't get paid both salary and prize money. Since btrg boss is in china but players are not in china they can't confront him face 2 face, so they just quit.

I don't know anything about cbbk, but if they don't screw up last pick and manage to make these players work as a team - which i can imagine may take quite some time - this can be first solid Asia roster in long time. Would be nice to see. Tyloo is stagnating and ViCI is dragged down by bot advent for years now...

Good luck erkaSt and NG! erkaSt is pretty good player in my opinion and the roster looks pretty good, I hope NG will be successful!

2020-10-27 16:49

2020-10-27 16:57

Yo le noob, Impossible, he doesn’t speak a word of english and they need an awper.
2020-10-30 13:19
expecting xxcurate or splashske as 5th
2020-10-27 17:15
with this cbbk its just another tier 3 team
2020-10-27 17:26
Yeah now this is a decent team. They only need an awper and it would be great if they can get Kaze but it feels kinda not possible
2020-10-27 17:39
I don’t think erkast is a household name in Asia lmao
