Transactions: HenryG Joins Crack, TCM Goes Console
Posted by SmellyMoss on May 1st 2009 11:50
Here is a rundown of the transactions that have happened over the last ten days in the UK. A surprising amount happening in the build up to LAN79.
Team CoolerMaster have thrown their hat into the console scene by picking up Decerto mainstay Emotion (Michael Kent) and a top flight CoD4 squad. Former Dignitas and Imperial veteran Rumsey leads the pack which is filled out by Crazyfistz, Gunshy and DopedGoat. Great pick-up by TCM.
HenryG (Henry Greer) has finished his hop, skip and jump and has landed himself in Crack Clan. The former 4Kings player was loaned out to Dignitas for the GSL tournament but has confirmed that he will be playing for Crack at LAN79 this weekend. Crack has moved Mx (Jim Smale) to make room for Counter-Strike: Source's equivalent to David Beckham (sorry). Greer recently said, "I had many, many offers after the gadget show, although a lot of people will criticise me for this decision, I have done a lot of soul searching and I feel this is the best path for me. I’m just going to do my G thing at Lan79, you know how I roll." Yes, we do.
After the departure of the G man from 4Kings, all hell broke loose with Dumbazo and Cauzed also deciding to call it quits from gaming's royality. No word on a new 4K line-up yet.
Crack Clan was also recently on the verge of signing the former MeetYourMakers CS 1.6 squad. Then they got shafted and a single tear fell from Luke Cotton's eye. That may or may not have happened but Luke did comment. He said, "We’re obviously bitterly disappointed about this, everything had been agreed and the rebranding of the new look cc// would have happened today had we not received such news. Collectively the management staff here at cc// have been around for long enough to know that this set back isn’t something that needs to be worried about, we still have the support necessary to continue with our expansion."
Woah. RattlesnK is back and ready to bite. The Dignitas player is returning to their CSS line-up in time for LAN79 which leaves FrankstaH (Frank Rini) the odd man out. Will he return to his old form and keep Dignitas at the top? Probably.
Coinz, one of the top soldiers in TF2, has been transferred from Team CoolerMaster (formerly WOTR) to YoYoTech where he will take on the roll of scout. A superb signing considering that Coinz is one of the best all around TF2 players out there. In the aftermath, Team CoolerMaster TF2 have called it quits.
Team Infused have replaced twrs (Josh Towers) with bAc (Ben Coppard) after Towers asked to step back from team due to, "motivational issues." The Infused captain, chenson, was a little emotional over twrs decision and said, "Since i36, the team has been contemplating the best way to move forward and prepare for the summer lans and Josh decided it was best to step aside due to a lack of motivation. The whole team are very saddened to see Josh go as he has been a massive part of this team and one of the nicest people I have met in gaming without a shadow of a doubt."
The Imperial have seen a whirlwind of activity and are showing why its not always peaches and cream being an esports team that features top players but the lack of backing to keep them (esports and professional sports are closer than we sometimes think). Off to 4Kings are the top Dell XPS Premiership FIFA 09 players Sensation and Klash - they will still represent TI at the Grand Finals. FIWC finalist AdamW is still with the team. In Halo 3, the Buk twins have left TI leaving Vard and Badshah on their own. It's a sad time for The Imperial but they do have one skill that almost all other UK teams seem to be lacking at the moment - they are great at finding and developing top console players instead of nicking them from other teams. Yes, I just went there.
