One of the newest to join the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive hoopla is the eSports Organization Absolute Legends, but in doing so also meant dropping their old CS 1.6 team.
More and more former and retired CS 1.6 players are embracing Valve’s latest incarnation of the FPS classic, as more and more tournaments adopt CS:GO to their games line-up. Unfortunately, this also means the excellent CS 1.6 will now be practically retired in the competitive scene, but this also means the development of CS:GO will continue and evolve into hopefully the best FPS this generation will have. Absolute Legends and their former CS 1.6 team---which reportedly have lost their drive to compete in the new CS scene---have parted ways amicably. But not wanting to be left out of the CS:GO scene, aL acquired a Swedish team that was searching for an organization to be their new home.
Absolute Legends CS:GO team:
- André "BARBARR" Möller
- Daniel "rape" Börzsönyi
- Dennis "dennis" Edman
- Danniel "dalito" Morales
- Joel "emilio" Mako
Team captain André "BARBARR" Möller released this statement:
"After a while searching for an organisation we finally found AbsoluteLegends. Some intense talks later, we thought everything seemed more than fine and decided to take the step. aL have a big reputation in almost every game and is finally stepping into the Counter Strike scene. With this support in our backs, whether we succeed or not depends on us. We'd also like to thank Razer, Specialtech, and Twitch for supporting us and Absolute Legends."
