cowana revamp roster with international signings ahead of ESL Conference

The German organization has gone international with the addition of three European players, including Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn.

cowana has announced the acquisition of three new players from different European countries in HS, Ádám "⁠kolor⁠" Domoszlay and Armandas "⁠maty⁠" Kneita, who will join in-game leader Kevin "⁠kRYSTAL⁠" Amend and veteran Stefan "⁠stfN⁠" Seier.

cowana, who signed a German team in 2021, are now taking leap with the signing of an international squad. This move will provide HS, who has struggled reach previous heights in his career in the past years with Nordavind and GORILLAZ, another chance to show his capabilities as he reunites with former PENTA teammate kRYSTAL.

The renewed cowana will debut on LAN at ESL Conference

Former Budapest Five player kolor will be returning to the organization he spent a short two months with back in 2021, albeit with a different team at the time, while maty joins from the now-disbanded Berzerk.

The revamped cowana will face their first big test in Jönköping, Sweden, where they will play ESL Conference 16 for a shot at reaching the upcoming ESL Pro League season. They will kick off their run on June 16 at 12:30 against MIBR in the first round of play.

The team's international players will then move to Germany so that the Franconian organization can remain eligible to compete in one of the most important events in their calendar, ESL Meisterschaft.

"I have had the pleasure of playing in many international teams before, with HS as well," kRYSTAL said about the move. "I am happy we found those 3 individuals with the right mindset."

cowana is now:

Germany Kevin "⁠kRYSTAL⁠" Amend
Germany Stefan "⁠stfN⁠" Seier
Estonia Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn
Hungary Ádám "⁠kolor⁠" Domoszlay
Lithuania Armandas "⁠maty⁠" Kneita

Germany Dominik "⁠KiNGDOM⁠" Aberle (coach)

0.89 is for a rifle as well btw, this guy basically hasnt awped for 2 years except for 2 months on a different cowana roster, he always played with torzsi or fleav who were the main awp

Was kRYSTAL supposedly having ego issues a thing? I remember hearing he doesn't really work to improve his game since he's really cocky, and so hard limits his abilities. But I doubt I heard that from any reliable source. Was a big fan of the old PENTA->Seed->Sprout lineup with SuNny, HS, innocent and Zehn. Hoping to see shades of that with this team.

I don't know about the far away past but from what I know he is really hardworking And Krimbo said he takes advice/suggestion from everyone I don't know if you wanna call it an ego problem but he left the NA teams because he felt like they weren't working hard enough and were mostly playing for the money

I mean kRYSTAL always made those teams work, but with stfN and HS on it, it just seems... old, to old tbh. I don't know, I always liked kRYSTAL so I wish him all the best but I doubt it can make as much damage as the GODSENT project did.
