Kinguin, a Hong Kong-based digital game key company signs new international CS:GO TEAM

Few weeks ago CS:GO community started discussion about new upcoming international lineup featuring Swedish duo Mikail “Maikelele” Bill and  Alexander “SKYTTEN” Carlsson , Norwegian rising superstar Håvard "rain" Nygaard, Belgian ex-Titan/Epsilon  aimstar Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom and Portuguese  AWP’er  Ricardo “fox” Pacheco.

Following rumors SK-gaming, one of the most established organization in eSport that already has deal with Swedish duo back in days looked to make their way back into the CS scene again .

In the last moment SK-gaming offer was declined because Kinguin, a Hong Kong-based digital game key company stepped and quickly reached an agreement with the players.

Will Maikelele and ScreaM show their  top form again?

Here is a statement from Mikail “Maikelele” Bill about the formation and vision of Team Kinguin:

"For a long time Adil and I have been discussing a potential lineup with both of us wanting it badly," Bill said in a statement.

"Right after being released from NiP we picked up those talks and started looking over our possibilities to make it come true. We now have all the support and backup needed to go all the way in Team Kinguin and I know I speak for my team when I say that's exactly what we're going to do.

"Our goal is simple. We want to play against the top tier teams in the top tier tournaments. It won't be easy and we know that a lot of time and effort will be needed to honor what Adil and I once could only dream about.

"Trust me when I say we are ready though. Are you? Let's go!"

The Hardest part of making this team was getting Håvard "rain" Nygaard in lineup : Norwegian star  had 22 months to run on his contract with LGB , but in the end Kinguin reached agreement with Diglife and LGB.

Here is a statement from Diglife and LGB eSports:

"We have through a very professional process and discussions reached a historic deal to transfer Håvard ”rain” Nygaard to an exciting new team.

"The sale represents an acknowledgement of our strategic thesis that electronic sports growing into a global and professional industry, just like any other professional sports category.

"At last, on behalf of LGB eSports and Diglife, I would like to thank Håvard for the excellent results delivered over his course with us. We wish him the best of luck in the future."


However the team has already start practicing and according to Kinguin.net statement gonna live in team house in future. Most of people think that Kinguin players will not overcome the language barrier, especially Adil “ScreaM” Bernlitom who showed his low level of English on his stream on twitch.tv.

!My thoughts! Why this team will not disband?

First of all ScreaM don’t have any other team to join after Epsilon eSports matchfixing scandal, same goes for Maikelele who was kicked from NiP after ASUS ROG where Ninjas spotted 1st place. Second of all Fox will not get other chance to prove himself.
