In May NEOFRAG left the SINNERS CSGO team and was transferred to the famous organization OG Esports. Since then, Tomáš "Tomkeejs" Tomka has stepped in our active roster.
The coach of our team took over the vacant spot in the lineup and gave us plenty of time so we will not have to rush finding a right replacement. Moreover, over time he got into his comfort zone and performed very well.
„After the departure of NEOFRAG, we had to act very quickly. Fortunately, we made a good decision with Tomkeejs. It was such a fun period that turned out well for us," Moritz "Askadar" Straube, CEO of SINNERS Esports, said about the whole situation.
The replacement of Adam Zouhar was supposed to be AJTT in the first place, but negotiations failed due to financial disagreements between SINNERS and the Entropiq team. The name manguss was also in play, but even there the price did not make sense to us.
Moritz Straube: „We want to continue in the CZ/SK scene. That's why it was so important for us not to have a player from abroad. We have many talents around here that have the potential to make it to the international level. We negotiated with three CZ/SK organizations, but we very quickly understood that it would not work out due to the incomprehensible pricing of the other parties."
And since we want to have a Czechoslovakian line-up, we tried to look for the players abroad. The first name was of course Zero. A player who has Major experience and is incredibly mature both in and out of the game.
„Patrik is a smart, dedicated and experienced person, thanks to whom I believe we will get back into the TOP30. In addition, he is able to play in all positions, which we desperately need at this time," added Askadar.
Julian "morxzas" Miculcy from GamerLegion was also full of praise for the Slovak player: „We had two fantastic years with Patrik. He is a great player and has shaped our organization not only inside the game. Even in difficult times, he had a positive mindset and was a pillar for our young players. Completing his computer science degree while playing for us is a testament to his professionalism. We will miss Patrik and wish him all the best for the future."
The CS:GO team has a player break until mid-August. Our players will mainly spend their well-deserved time off resting and doing other activities. A hard grind will follow, so that the team has time to play together, as the first official matches await us from August 16, when the ESL Challenger League Season 42 begins. The main goal of this season is the Major tournament in Rio.
