In preparation for a busy upcoming CS:GO tournament season, which includes Dreamhack Winter, ESEA LAN and likely MLG X-Games, iBUYPOWER has decided to make a change in its starting roster. Longtime members Joshua “steel” Nissan and Sam “DaZeD” Marine have been released from the line-up.
After the team returned from Milan and Paris, the majority of the group felt it was best to look in a new direction in hopes of continuing iBUYPOWER’s success in CS:GO.
iBUYPOWER is thankful for the time with Nissan and Marine, both who were an integral part of two ESEA LAN Championships, a second place finish at FACE-IT Milan, a CEVO-P Championship, among a number of other achievements.
The entire iBUYPOWER team wishes Nissan and Marine the best in their bright CS:GO futures.
The team has brought veteran Counter-Strike star Drew “irukandji” Timmerman on-board to serve as a coach. Irukandji offered the following comment about his new role:
“I’m really excited to work with the guys to see if we can improve upon the solid results they’ve had at recent international events. While coaching in CS is still a relatively unproven novelty, I am looking to contribute in as many ways as possible moving forward.”
