Entropiq reveal new roster featuring tiziaN
With the stated ambition of returning to a Major in mind, Entropiq have revealed an eclectic new roster.
Entropiq have announced the rest of their Counter-Strike roster for the upcoming season, adding Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch, Luka "c0llins" Živanović, Blagoi "oxygeN" Dimitrov and Max "Marix" Kugener. Niclas "enkay J" Krumhorn also joins as coach.
This new-look squad has been put together by Entropiq with the intention of once again competing in the upper echelons of Counter-Strike, as they did throughout much of 2021 and 2022 with their Russian-speaking lineup. Results soured for that iteration of the roster mid-way through 2022, and although the organization signed a new set of players early in 2023, little of note was achieved.
Young AWPer forsyy was signed early in July as the first piece of Entropiq’s rebuild, arriving from the SINNERS bench. Prior to being benched by the Czech squad to make way for Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný, forsyy had been the highest-rated player over his 10 months in the team, posting a 1.18 rating.
tiziaN is the newcomer to Entropiq who has the highest profile, having spent over five years with BIG competing at the very top of the professional scene. During that time tiziaN helped his countrymen win events such us DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 and more recently the Roobet Cup 2022, and was part of the squad when they briefly occupied the No. 1 spot in the world mid-way through 2020.
enkay J is another BIG alumni on his way to Entropiq, as the 34-year-old briefly coached the German side towards the end of 2021. He made way for Fatih "gob b" Dayik when the German legend returned from VALORANT to coach BIG’s Counter-Strike team.
Marix, c0llins and oxygeN arrive with little tier one experience under their belts. Marix briefly featured for Sprout in 2022 and did rack up some game time against top-tier sides, but he struggled at that level and left the team by mutual consent four months later. c0llins comes from the Serbian scene, where he played for teams like 4glory and more recently Partizan. Bulgarian oxygeN has represented SKADE and VOYVODA in the past, most recently turning out for allStars.
