Chiefs knew that to fill the shoes of their iconic roster AND go hunting for the major slot that has so far eluded them, they’d have to sign one heck of a Team. Fortunately, they’ve found one.
For the continual history at the top of the CS:GO division, as one of the stalwart organisations in Oceanic Esports, one of the feathers absent from their cap is a Major sticker. Today, they announced a new direction in their CSGO division which retains that status while also allowing them to compete in the Major system.
The acquisition of the roster most recently known simply as Team has been a consistent performer at the top of the scene over the last year. The roster joins Chiefs almost twelve months to the day after having formed under Genuine Gaming and have a slew of top 4 results over that time.
- Hugh “HUGHMUNGUS” Anderson
- Chris “Jinxx” Moseley
- Tom “apocdud” Henry (Captain)
- Jordan “SkulL” Newland
- Daryl “Maker” May
apocdud is excited to join a roster that shares their ambition and will empower them to grow.
“We’re all super keen to represent such a respected and storied organisation, and hopefully with their support we’ll be able to continue climbing the ranks of OCE and start consistently competing in overseas events.”
“I hope all our team team fans keep following us on our journey with Chiefs!” said apocdud.
Chiefs CEO Nick Bobir paid tribute to the outgoing roster, who served admirably in the events they were able to compete in under their circumstances.
“We would like to thank the previous members of the Chiefs Counter Strike roster who at the end of last season decided to go their separate ways, pursue new teams or hang up the keyboard.
“While one chapter closes, we are excited to start a new era with a team that has certainly worked hard throughout 2019, turned heads and made plenty of noise.”
The outgoing Chiefs roster contained some absolute titans of the local scene that would be a monumental challenge to live up to. Fortunately, their new roster has been putting up some titanic efforts of their own. Currently 5-1 in Mountain Dew League, this new partnership is poised to go from strength to strength as they push towards the first major qualifier season of 2020.
