Coldzera Joins FaZe, EG Picks Up NRG, Shox Leaves G2 – CS:GO Recap 9/26/2019
Welcome back everyone to another exciting day of CS:GO news! Today we finally got the announcement of FaZe’s new 5th, a look at EG’s pick-up of NRG, and continuing rumors around G2.
As always, we’ve got a lot to cover today, so let’s dive on in.
Coldzera to FaZe
Now having gone through the most expensive player signing ever, the new roster (Rain, Broky, Olofmeister, Coldzera, and NiKo), is set to take the competitive scene by storm. The team will be looking to prove themselves at ESL One New York this weekend.
NRG to EG
Speaking of ESL One New York, the biggest news of the whole event was confirmed today as EG officially announced they’d picked up NRG’s entire roster.
As we discussed yesterday, EG has been missing from the CS scene for the past seven years, so seeing them drop Call of Duty for a CS:GO team is massive.
The move also means the rumors of 100 Thieves picking up NRG’s squad have unfortunately been laid to rest, though the team still has the chance to sign the Renegades roster potentially.
We’ll have to wait and see how the whole situation shakes up for 100 Thieves. For now, we have the ESL One to watch with all these crazy roster and org changes.
Nexa and Hunter to G2
Elsewhere at New York, we got confirmation from NeL that G2 will be picking up Hunter and Nexa from CR4ZY.
After a month of drama as CR4ZY’s CEO accused G2 of trying to poach his players, the debacle appears to be finally solved, with the players looking like they’ll be joining the starting line-up following ESL One New York.
The report also states they’ll be taking over for Lucky and KioShiMa, the latter of which is standing in for Shox at the event, as Shox has been released from the squad and is rumored to be joining Vitality.
We’ll continue to keep you all updated as this roster carousel situation continues to develop.
That’s all we have for today, thanks for reading. We’ll be back next tomorrow with more CS:GO news, so stay tuned!
