AT Black promoted to Main Team, Red disbanded
Today we have both good and bad news to announce concerning our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams. To summarize, we have promoted AT. Black to Main team, whilst AT. Red disbanded is.
Starting off with the disbanding of AT Gaming Red, who joined us over 6 months ago and played under our banner at eSports Festival, Frag-o-Matic 17.1 and The Reality XVI. At these tournaments they had some strong showings, especially with their 3rd place finish at The Reality. The problem however was, that the team struggled to keep maintain a stable line-up. After a couple of roster changes that didn’t work out, the core of the team decided that the best thing to do was to disband the team and all go their separate ways. We as AT Gaming would like to take this moment to thank the players, especially Moritz "radicaL3i" van der Lugt and Victor "Imprez" Walsteijn, for their time and dedication and wish them the best of luck in the future.
Moving over to the positive news. After being with us for over 5 months with a stable line-up, and proven growth as a team, we are very happy to say that AT Gaming Black has been promoted to Main team. Their results speak for themselves, as a slow start with a 9th/12th place at eSports Festival was followed by a 4th place at a stacked Frag-o-Matic 17.1 and a 1st place at The Reality XVI. With the growth of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in not only the Benelux, but also in Europe and worldwide we are very happy to have a stable, dedicated and strong team with us. The team will not only aim to be the best in the Benelux, but their eyes are also set on the European level. To accomplish this, AT CSGO will be participating in Insomnia 56 in Birmingham, England, from the 11th to 14th of December. Afterwards, they will also compete in the Eizo Community Cup, after having qualified by winning The Reality XVI. This tournament will take place between the 18th and 20th.
