ESC Gaming sign ex-RG-Esports team

ESC Gaming have announced they have picked up the former RG-Esports Counter-Strike division.

The Scandinavian team join ESC Gaming as their international division, with the organisation keeping in their ranks the German team, who finished in second place at the EPS finals at the weekend.

The former alchemists Unleashed team departed RG-Esports last week just two months after their arrival, having been seduced by a better offer from a financially stronger organisation.

According to Markus "pronax" Wallsten, the support ESC Gaming will provide will allow the team to take their game to the next level.

"We are very happy about the opportunity that ESC Gaming has given us," he said. "With this move, we have everything a team needs to be one of the best in the world."

The Norwegian/Swedish mixture were last seen at Xperia PLAY, finishing in 3rd-4th place together with mTw as the two teams split the prize. The team are also through to the second group stage of the ICSC 8.

The new ESC Gaming team will make their first appearance for the organisation at the BYOC qualifier for DreamHack Summer on 18 June, where they will present:

Sweden Andreas "moddii" Fridh
Sweden André "BARBARR" Möller
Sweden Markus "pronax" Wallsten
Norway Karl William "kalle" Haraldsen
Norway Tommy "tacky" Mosgaard

gl boys!

2 replies
yes he is better then GTR, Gux , Markeloff , and esp Edward, Dosia and Zonic, trace and adren. we talk about ingame skill , basicly ingame awareness, aim , movement etc etc. The only reason he isnt the star in SK or fntMSI is beacuse they don't like his attitude.
2011-06-07 22:04
1 reply
That time he was in Sk..... He was the star :) But yea, I dont like either playing with players, with same attitudes as MODDII :P But for sure, you cant compare, MODDII with Markeloff and Tarce, but I think the others are just as good as him, or even better.

With the support of the best bootcamps to offer in Berlin, onces similiar to the Inferno-Online in Stockholm. There's absolutely no doubt that this team will do international damage, let me keep you in mind; when Xizt played in the team laget with pronax, they achieved some upsets. This team alongside kalle will create atleast some minor havoc before ending the phoneix tale again! A strong good luck to you guys, you sincerly needs it!
