A number of eSports organizations are now gearing up for the upcoming release of CS: Global Offensive on August 21 by forming competitive teams dedicated to Valve’s next FPS masterpiece, and Mistral eSports is one of them.
Actually, Mistral already had a CS:GO team a couple of weeks ago but they were let go after a disappointing performance in the recently concluded Go4CSGO cup. Also, their fifth player was creating problems within the team. Mistral, an organization known for creating great teams, was not slowed down by this setback and got right back on track by picking up members of QED, a team composed of 3 players from United Kingdom and 2 from the Netherlands.
The captain of the team, Matt “stato” Walker released a statement:
"Since starting to play the CS:GO beta we have seen the game improve by leaps and bounds, including the competitive scene. The game should provide all fps players with a great, balanced and fun platform to compete on. Thus, we are really excited about being given the opportunity to play under Team Mistral's name . Having played CS:GO together for quite some time and armed with our new 5th, we are eager to do well in the future and hope to represent the organization to the best of our ability. We would also like to say a big thanks to the management of Team Mistral and to all of the CS:GO community for supporting the up and coming title."
