Following our earlier announcement featuring 21 teams for GameGune 2012, the Kazakhstani team k23 built around Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev has signed up as well.
The team hasn't been together officially in years due to Kystaubayev joining United and then moving to China in 2010 for school. However, they attended ASUS Open Summer 2010 and defeated Natus Vincere in the semi-finals before losing against Lions.
k23 includes three players of NEXT at WCG 2011
Most recently three of their players represented Kazakhstan under the name of NEXT at World Cyber Games 2011 where they managed a fourth place finish following losses against ESC Gaming and Moscow Five.
k23 at GameGune 2012:
Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev
Alexander "beAst" Yakovlev
Dastan "dastan" Akbaev
Adlet "KeeN" Nyrseytov
Malik "N1ck3L" Sualirov
There are still two more slots open at GameGune 2012 which will kick off on Thursday in Bilbao. HLTV.org will bring you full coverage of the event on-site.
