MAJ3R set to join Imaginary
Imaginary Gaming have given a strong indication that they will add Engin "MAJ3R" Kupeli to their ranks.
The French team are believed to be in the market for a new player after Richard "shox" Papillon revealed earlier in the week that Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom had quit the squad to pursue his career in VeryGames.
While the ESWC runners-up, who lost Cédric "RpK" Guipouy to retirement earlier on Wednesday, stated that Benrlitom had not joined the team, Imaginary have seemingly confirmed that the Belgian ace is no longer in the squad, having removed him from their roster in the ESL Major Series.
To fill this gap, Imaginary resorted to picking up Engin "MAJ3R" Kupeli, a former member of Millenium and Electronic Sahara.
MAJ3R finally makes the switch to CS:GO
This will be the first CS:GO experience for Kupeli, who has played alongside Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavigni in the past.
Imaginary will tackle 3DMAX in the EMS semi-finals as they look for a place in the tournament decider, in which they could face either Ninjas in Pyjamas or the former eXtensive! team.
Imaginary have the following lineup registered on the ESL's website:
Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavini
Richard "Shox" Papillon
Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel
Michel "mshz" Nguyen
Engin "MAJ3R" Kupeli
