The Detroit Renegades are proud to announce their newest additions to the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, members Noah ‘Nifty’ Francis and Nemanja ‘Nexa’ Isakovic.
Nifty has played for Selfless Gaming in the North American scene for the past year, dazzling on both rifle and AWP against the best that America and Brazil has to offer, while Nexa joins from Serbian powerhouse iNation, where he formerly played with current Renegades CS:GO coach Aleksandar “kassad” Trifunović and analyst Janko “YNk” Paunović.
At first glance in Belgrade, Serbia the core line-up of Aaron ‘AZR’ Ward, Justin ‘jks’ Savage and Karlo ‘USTILO’ Pivac met with their new teammates during a break in matches for Starladder to travel and bootcamp together for the first time, the chemistry was indescribable.
“We felt discussing strategies and tactics in person would accelerate the learning curve while building a bond between teammates. We had a hugely successful bootcamp against European teams and cannot wait to get started with our Official matches in ECS Season 3 and the remaining weeks of ESL. Also, the team will be competing at IEM Sydney and the Asian Minor within upcoming months.” – Chris ‘GoMeZ’ Orfanellis
The Renegades now return to North America to resume their onslaught in the ESL Pro League, where two wins tonight would elevate the team to the 4th position before traveling to Australia to participate in Oceania’s largest eSports event to date, IEM Sydney!
