Prospects come to life
A new Swedish team has spawned, featuring the likes of André "BARBARR" Möller and Daniel "rape" Börzsönyi.
The former ICSU trio Joel "emilio" Mako, Danniél "dalito" Morales and Daniel "rape" Börzsönyi have teamed up with André "BARBARR" Möller and John "hyvlarn" Edelsvärd to give Valve's new title Counter-Strike: Global Offensive a try.
Going by the name Prospects, the team follows the crowd of former Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike: Source teams who have already made the switch to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Questioned about how the transition to the new game has been, Möller, the team's captain, said, "Of course, it's hard to go from Counter-Strike 1.6 to Call of Duty," with a slightly sarcastic voice, but added, "Hard work always pays off, no matter what."
This is Joel "emilio" Mako's first time in a team together with Möller. "It is great being under BARBARR's leadership. It feels good to have someone with a lot of experience on our team. We're in for an interesting future, for sure," Mako told HLTV.org.
"We are starting the fresh CS:GO season with full speed and a lot of motivation, with plans to attend every event and online tournament to come. We are currently looking for all the support we can get in order to help us succeed.
"We would furthermore like to say thank you to all the people who have always supported CS 1.6 and all the players in our team. Hopefully you'll still keep supporting us, and we will have a great future together in CS:GO," the team's manager, Endel "MedaY" Koch, told HLTV.org.
As Koch mentioned, Prospects are looking for interested parties to support their newly started venture into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
