EXTREMUM has announced its return to the CS: GO scene with the acquisition of Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand alongside the core of the former 100 Thieves roster.
The Russia-based esports organization announced on Monday. Other members of the team include coach Aleksandar “kassad” Trifunović, who was in charge of the 100T players. He recently left the Cloud9 Colossus project.
After a year-long campaign with Gen.G Esports, BnTeT made a name for himself with TYLOO. Having got off to a good start, Gen.G lost some of its key players to VALORANT due to lack of consistent form. The forced the organization to put the roster on the transfer list at the end of 2020.
Timothy “automatic” Ta is the only player that remains on Gen.G’s inactive roster.
100 Thieves had signed the Renegades roster from Australia after back-to-back Major playoff appearances and re-entered Counter-Strike in October 2019. However, they struggled to get results under their new banner. They could get the top spot during their time at 100T.
Due to dissatisfaction between the players and the organization, while playing CS in North America, they have now found solace in EXTREMUM. With the Russian based outfit, the players’ wish of moving to Europe is fulfilled.
Similarly, EXTREMUM will be having a competitive structure like 100 Thieves. Aaron “AZR” Ward will be the in-game leader, while Sean “Gratisfaction” Kaiwai will man the AWP. Jay “Liazz” Tregillgas will hold the stead as a support rifler, while Joakim “jkaem” Myrbostad and BnTeT will be playing the primary rifling roles.
In another development, FunPlus Phoenix has acquired the service of the former GODSENT CS: GO lineup.
This was revealed in an announcement made on Monday.
The CS: GO has Pavle “maden” Boskovic, Martin “STYKO” Styk and Asger “farlig” Jensen, Jesse “zehN” Linjala in its core roster. They will be coached by Jonatan “Devilwalk” Lundberg, a two-time Major winner with Fnatic during his playing career.
