Krimbo, PANIX join ALTERNATE aTTaX

The former BIG Academy duo will debut for their new organisation in the ESL Meisterschaft Autumn semi-finals on January 17.

ALTERNATE aTTaX have announced the signing of Karim "⁠Krimbo⁠" Moussa and Max "⁠PANIX⁠" Hangebruch from BIG Academy, adding the pair of German players to help refill their ranks after Sabit "⁠mirbit⁠" Coktasar, Marko "⁠kressy⁠" Đorđević, and Fritz "⁠slaxz-⁠" Dietrich decided against re-signing with the organisation for 2021.

Krimbo was BIG Academy's highest-rated player in 2020, averaging a 1.11 rating over 62 maps, while PANIX averaged a 1.05 rating over the same time span, with the team most notably winning the 99Liga Season 15 and placing fourth in Season 16.

ALTERNATE aTTaX have replenished their ranks with two new players

The signing marks the end of the first iteration of the BIG Academy project, with all of their players having signed professional contracts with other teams. In a press release, the organisation stated that they will scout a new lineup heading into the 2021 circuit.

ALTERNATE aTTaX will have two weeks to finalise a fifth player as they are set to face Sprout in a semi-final match-up for ESL Meisterschaft Autumn on January 17. The team also holds a spot in ESEA MDL Season 36 Europe, set to kick off on January 18.

ALTERNATE aTTaX now have:

Germany Robin "⁠ScrunK⁠" Röpke
Germany Stefan "⁠stfN⁠" Seier
Germany Karim "⁠Krimbo⁠" Moussa
Germany Max "⁠PANIX⁠" Hangebruch

rigon could "easily" join a MUCH better team than A.Attax or the lineup i typed above.
2021-01-03 23:57
1 reply
Idk about that. He has potential but c0ntact peaked at #40 with him and the "new" aTTaX with kRYSTAL and a good 5th would be around #60-#50 in the rankings imo. rigoN had an OK rating in c0ntact but he wasn't a beast so no top 30 org would sign him. Also not when you have players like twistzz, dycha or smooya available who are better than him
2021-01-04 00:27
I think rigoN might be good for this roster

Bruh. Did you even read the comments lol? #47 said kRYSTAL is the 5th, then ScrunK is not needed since kRYSTAL can IGL and play the "garbage" roles. Its like Astralis adding Karrigan over Xyp9x and play: gla1ve Karrigan Device Magisk Dupreeh lol

Probably lack of alternatives or someone involved in management sees potential in him. At least he’s got a bit of experience in a ‚professional’ team already so they probably thought why not give him a chance

He is taking a break from pro cs. Andyy was sick in expert but he dropped off in uol and I'm not sure if he is as good as PANIX atm. PANIX is an ok player and I guess that Attax took him to make krimbo feel more comfortable. Maybe kRYSTAL can improve him individually cause he was able to make GODSENT perform really good and he is probably Attax's 5th. I think their main problem will be scrunk If he stays in the active lineup.

Yeah scrunk is a good igl but you don't need him if the leaks are true and kRYSTAL joins aTTaX. They are both bad individually but have big brains (but kRYSTAL>scrunk) so it would be weird If they are both in the active lineup and aTTaX would lack of firepower. PANIX was the only one besides krimbo who was able to perform against top 100 teams and not only in german leagues. I don't think that he is ready/good enough for t2/3 but there are not really better AWPers in gemany atm. The only 2 aTTaX could add are probably devraNN and Andyy. Maybe PANIX will perform better than expected we'll See.
