That’s now the EG CS:GO roster, after the American juggernaut signed both Carpe Diem and Party Astronauts. The madmen actually did it.
If we zoom out a little bit, the move still looks crazy but does seem a bit more grounded in EG’s own realities. They improved their League of Legends academy roster and brought two players through to make a championship-winning team.
In principle it makes sense. It event means that they can play multiple tournaments at once. Something something monkeys and typewriters.
Is this the way to win a Major? We’re doubtful. But maybe they can GET to a Major, which would definitely be an improvement. And if nothing else, they’ve eliminated two potential competitors in the qualifier…
EG are not the only ones to add players, but everything else looks less… dramatic in comparison.
