A new international line-up has been created in Europe featuring former members of teams like Red Reserve, G2 and OpTic, it has been announced.
This new team feature three Swedes in William “draken” Sundin, Hampus “hampus” Poser, and coach Christian “chrille” Lindberg, with the trio having been released from Red Reserve, an organisation that is rumoured to have ceased operations due to financial problems.
Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans, who officially left G2 on Thursday, has been recruited to lead the squad, in which he will be joined by former teammate and fellow Belgian player Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom, who stepped down from NoChance last month.

Rounding out the roster is Kevin “HS” Tarn, who is no stranger to international line-ups after making a name for himself as part of PENTA and OpTic, attending a Major with the former.
“As you guys might have noticed, my time in Red Reserve was rather tumultuous on many levels,” draken told HLTV.org. “I am determined to get back on top and I’m happy to announce that, starting today, the road there will be together with ScreaM, Ex6tenz, HS and hampus. We are all free agents and open to offers.
“Everyone is eager to start playing together and build something great. We are confident that, with our experience from the very top of Counter-Strike, individual stars and great leadership, we will establish ourselves among the top teams in the world very quickly.
“We are currently looking for an organisation to represent, contact us via our manager at [email protected]”
