“I have been very impressed with their performances over the last couple of months,” SnypeR said.
“This is a young team and I believe that given time, resources and coaching we will help them realise their full potential”
The multi-national lineup consists of Australians Peter “BL1TZ” Athanasatos, Hugh “Stat” Anderson and Chris “Yellow” McGillivray as well as New Zealander Egor “LONS” Baranov and Korean Jay “soju_j” Jeong.
