With the i46 CS:S tournament expected to be the last big one many of the European elite are gearing up to make it something special. Once it's over it seems increasingly likely that CS:S will be all but forgotten when it comes to competitive play thanks to the release of CS:Global Offensive. Most sides currently battling it out for honours are expected to make the move and FMToxic yesterday revealed that they would indeed be focusing on the new title once their mission at i46 is complete.
With that announcement the team have also revealed a change to their lineup, saying goodbye to former Rasta xD man Josh 'mole' Rowley and replacing him with current Rasta xD man Jamie 'keita' Hall. As one of the most committed players in the UK scene the team will be hoping that keita will push them ahead of the opposition when the time comes to do battle, and with most sides having to learn a new game completely in the coming months the team have been wise to pick up a man they know can dedicate themselves to the cause.
Well Well Well, here we are again unfortunately having to announce another team change, but it is one that we see as a necessity in order to progress and be ready for i46 which is now just round the corner. After a long break during the summer we came back to practice for I-series but it didn’t go as planned and we started to realise that the balance in the team just wasn't right. We will be parting ways with Josh "Mole" Rowley, a decision which came down to a clash of personalities and very similar game-styles between players and it would require a hell of a lot of work to re-do our setups and positions within the time we have ahead of I-series. After debating whether it was the right move, some disappointing results in the online qualifiers re-iterated the need for change if we were to improve on our placing from the last event and a player we all desperately wanted to play with became available. We are happy to announce the pickup of Jamie "keita" Hall who myself and Whindanski played with in our XL party mix team and instantly got on brilliantly. Jamie can add a whole new dimension to our game, giving us the option of having 2 top awpers at our disposal as well as bringing a vast amount of game knowledge and someone to help myself with calling and developing the tactical side of our game. The change was also heavily influenced by the imminent arrival of CS:GO we will be focusing on CS:GO after i46 and having someone with Jamie's qualities will be invaluable to us when we make the transition to Global Offensive.
