Bravado announce CS:GO return

The new roster is headlined by former Project Destiny member Dimitri "⁠Detrony⁠" Hadjipaschali.

Bravado have announced the signing of a new roster, marking the South African organisation's re-entry into CS:GO following the end of "Project Destiny" two years ago, an effort which culminated with Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou and Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek joining ATK and later, Cloud9.

The new roster is headlined by Detrony, who was a member of the original Bravado roster that made the move to North America in 2018. The 30-year-old has not logged any official matches since competing with Goliath in ESEA Open Season 32 South Africa at the end of 2019.

Detrony returns to Bravado after two years

Former ATK member Rieghardt "⁠flexeeee⁠" Romatzki, who was notably a part of the ATK roster that featured Tyson "⁠TenZ⁠" Ngo as a stand-in for the ESL One Rio Asia Minor Middle East open qualifiers, also joins the revamped Bravado lineup, which also includes Shaun "⁠TheM4N⁠" Deyzel from DNMK.

The roster is rounded out by Willie "⁠wipeout⁠" Steyn, who previously played alongside flexeeee on VINDICTIVE, and 17-year-old Aidan “.exe” Vorster.

"Today we start a new chapter with a group of motivated individuals with whom we're excited to work and develop another story," Bravado stated in their announcement. "It took months of planning to select the right individuals for the new squad, and we're so excited to see what the future holds."

Bravado are:

South Africa Dimitri "⁠Detrony⁠" Hadjipaschali
South Africa Rieghardt "⁠flexeeee⁠" Romatzki
South Africa Shaun "⁠TheM4N⁠" Deyzel
South Africa Willie "⁠wipeout⁠" Steyn
South Africa Aidan ".exe" Vorster

Yo le noob, Why’d you think they didn’t pick Adaro and ZipZip??? (Including Rimkus for the troll ;) But no seriously why no Adaro? It seems legit retardée to take nonamers even in the sa scene instead of the best player in the country.
2021-03-02 18:31
1 reply
I believe there might have been interest in adaro but nothing materialised. He will stay with Goliath Gaming for now. Adaro is a very good player but the individuals they picked up have a lot of potential, especially .exe watch that guy.

Quite the opposite actually, our scene is still growing pretty fast. This season 151 teams signed up for the local CS league called VS Gaming which has 3 different divisions. The top division, masters, is the most competitive its ever been. Hopefully we start to get more opportunities to qualify for international events

2021-03-03 16:02
There are a bunch of local tournaments, leagues and events that run throughout the year. Because of our geographical situation we cant compete in any events in EU or any other major regions.
