Official: Extra Salt sign FaNg

The North American team have completed their starting lineup with the signing of the 18-year-old.

Extra Salt have announced the signing of Justin "⁠FaNg⁠" Coakley, confirming an earlier report by HLTV.org that indicated the organisation was in discussions with the Canadian talent.

FaNg hit his stride in 2020, taking part in three MDL seasons and in a number of other events and qualifiers. Over 181 maps, he averaged a 1.09 rating, and was a stand-out performer in IEM Beijing-Haidian North America for Rugratz, averaging a 1.11 rating against the likes of Liquid and Chaos.

FaNg has signed his first professional contract

The acquisition of FaNg completes the starting lineup of Extra Salt, who secured the services of the former Cloud9 roster last month. However, the team have previously stated that they are also interested in exploring a six-man roster.

With the player break nearing its end, Extra Salt will make their debut with their new roster soon. A Twitter reply from the organisation's CEO, Daniel van Flymen, indicates that the team intend to compete in ESEA Premier Season 36, slated to kick off on January 17; however, Extra Salt could make an early appearance in the Mythic Winter Cup, which will be held this weekend and will have $5,000 in prize money.

Extra Salt are now:

South Africa Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou
South Africa Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek
United States Ian "⁠motm⁠" Hardy
United States Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm
Canada Justin "⁠FaNg⁠" Coakley

South Africa Tiaan "⁠T.c⁠" Coertzen (coach)

MarkE is on a new team every 3 weeks, it's not a risk worth taking.

Wasn't he in Chaos at one point? Pretty sure he was salaried, but I could very much be wrong. Edit: well they folded so not his fault I guess.

He is pretty good. But I still think this team lacks some firepower to compete.
