emagine leaves Winterfox

Chris “emagine” Rowlands reveals his departure from the Aussie-Kiwi mixture, Winterfox.

After officially replacing Christopher “dexter” Nong with Razmik “RaZ” Bastadjan in February, which the Oceanic roster hoped their new AWPer would make them better in the long-run but the experiment has proved to be unsuccessful. Chris “emagine” Rowlands and crew have not attended an offline event since September last year at Northern Arena 2016 – Toronto (with dexter).

The team’s struggle to produce significant results continues as they fail to qualify for ECS Season 3 following an 8th place in the development league, and getting eliminated early in the Round of 16 of StarLadder i-League S3 North America qualifier.


Known for his time in Immunity, emagine departs Winterfox

Therefore, the line-up could only focus on competing in ESL Pro League S5. To make matters worse, the players were stuck in Oceania after the break and could not return back to their gaming house in Vegas, to finish off the remainder of their matches due to visa issues.

The players had no choice but to play from home at a ping disadvantage, and are currently standing in 13th place with a 2-18 W-L record. Ryan “zewsy” Palmer and co. still have to face OpTic, SK and ex-Selfless to finish off the season.

emagine reached out to HLTV.org to announce his departure:

“After exploring my options I have decided to leave Winterfox. It became apparent the dynamics in the team were clearly not conducive to our success. I wish my former teammates good luck in the future.”

“I would also like to thank Brian (Owner of Winterfox) for the opportunity and support during our time with the organization.”

“For now I will be weighing my options, interested parties can reach me at emagineCSGO@gmail.com”

With signs of further changes to come, there is no confirmation on who the remaining players will use to stand-in for EPL and currently leaves Winterfox with the following:

Ryan “zewsy” Palmer
Razmik “RaZ” Bastadjan
Chris “ofnu” Hanley
Mike “Moku” Aliferis

SK win cs_summit over Gambit

SK triumphed at cs_summit with a 3-1 win over Gambit in the grand final (Inferno 10-16, Cache 16-2, Train 16-13).

The grand final began on Gambit’s first choice, Inferno, whereDanylo “Zeus” Teslenko’s squad got off to a 5-0 start as Terrorists.SK then got three in a row defending the B bombsite before another B take ended with the Brazilians saving three weapons.

Three more B executes later, SK picked up their first lead in the match at 7-6 thanks to Joao “felps” Vasconcellos’ triple breaking their opponents’ economy, while the last two rounds were split between the two teams.

In the second half, Gambit took their lead back with Zeus’ triple in the second pistol and a 1v2 from Rustem “mou” Telepov against a forcebuy. Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo’s side then turned around a 3v4, but they had to eco once Gambit replied in the following round and went on to extend their lead to 13-9.

A 2v4 from Epitacio “TACO” de Melo and FalleN pushed SK to double digits, but they couldn’t string more rounds together yet again, asMihail “Dosia” Stolyarov and company finished off map one comfortably at 16-10.


SK back to winning ways with their first title since ESL One Cologne 2016

Cache was up next and it was SK as Terrorists getting a big lead early on that time after felps and Marcelo “coldzera” David won 1v1 clutches in the first two rounds, with the latter adding an ace to his name in the fourth round.

The best player of 2016 continued to rack up kills round after round, including two in a close 1v3 attempt that Gambit ended up winning in the end. That was the only round Zeus’s squad could muster up in the first ten, with SK breaking their economy time and time again.

Before the half ended, only one more round went Gambit’s way when Dosia put up a double when SK tried to run out door. By that time, coldzera was at 28 kills and broke 30 once the second pistol round was over, and his team picked up map two at 16-2.

SK continued with their fantastic form at the beginning of Train with Fernando “fer” Alvarenga and coldzera picking up a few multi-kills on their way to an 8-0 lead as Counter-Terrorists.

Abay “HObbit” Khasenov’s five kills over the next two rounds putGambit on the board, and Zeus’ quad-kill in the next made the score 8-4. The following round went the other way, but it wasGambit who closed out the half with two in a row for a respectable 6-9 half on the offense.

With a B retake, Gambit proceeded to close the gap and eventually grabbed their first lead in the 19th round. However, SK then started coming out on top of disadvantageous situations and went on a six-round streak, clinching match point at 15-11. Dosia then saved Gambit’s chances with a 1v2 clutch, but SK finished it off two rounds afterwards to hoist their first trophy in nine months.

cs_summit final standings:

1. SK – $63,750
2. Gambit – $33,750
3. OpTic – $19,500
4. Cloud9 – $15,000

Singularity win CPH Games

Singularity won the 2017 edition of Copenhagen Games after defeating Swedish mix dreamchasers 2-0 in the final (16-13 on Mirage and 16-12 on Nuke).

The Danish team had already caused a major upset in the last-four stage, beating German side BIG on just two maps to reach the final, just 48 hours after coming through the BYOC qualifier.

In the title decider, Singularity were pitted against Swedish mix team dreamchasers, featuring three members of GODSENT, Ninjas in Pyjamas’ backup member Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi and former Property member Joel “emilio” Mako.


Singularity shock the scene and win Copenhagen Games

The series began on Mirage, where dreamchasers got off to a great start, cruising to a 5-1 lead after losing the pistol round. Singularity then tightened their defence, with the half ending in a close 8-7 scoreline in favour of the Swedes.

Singularity came from the break looking very lively, winning five of the first six rounds to jump out to a 12-9 lead. dreamchasers would then win four in a row to retake the lead, but the Danes picked themselves up and took four rounds straight to lock down the map, 16-13.

Next up was Nuke, where the first half ended with dreamchasers taking a narrow 8-7 lead despite at one point being up 6-2. Now playing on the Terrorist side, Singularity won seven of the first nine rounds to bring the scoreline to a 14-9 advantage. With no room for error, dreamchasers still strung some rounds together, but there was no stopping the Danes.
