Crack Unveils Top CS 1.6 Team!

Crack Clan is proud to announce the acquisition of top CounterStrike 1.6 team Gameplay. After the closure of their previous organization, the team has been searching for a new organization and Crack Clan is thrilled to announce a deal which will see this talented and renowned team competing as Crack! at a number of upcoming events, starting with next week’s ESL Extreme Masters III Finals in Hanover, Germany. The team will be flying to Germany on Saturday to bootcamp prior to the event, hoping to replicate their previous performances under the Gameplay and Roccat brands which have consistently seen them place in the top 5 teams in the world. Their most recent results have seen them place 3rd at ESL EM Dubai, 5-6th at ESL EM Los Angeles, 5th at last season’s Extreme Masters II Finals, 2nd at the NGL One 2008 Finals, and 5th at Kode5 Finals 2008. They also placed 5th at ESWC 2007 and 1st at WSVG Louisville.

Crack Clan Director of Professional Gaming Luke Cotton gave the following statement:
“I’m thrilled to have a team of such a high calibre as Gameplay representing Crack as we look to establish ourselves amongst the higher echelon of professional gaming teams. Having a world class CounterStrike team such as this can only be advantageous for us and I’m looking forward to working with such a talented group of players whose professionalism has been equally excellent both in their recent performances and out of game.”

Team Leader Tomi “lurppis” Kovanen had the following to say on the move:
“After looking for a new organisation for the last couple of months I can finally say the search is over for us as we’re joining Crack! Unfortunately at the same time we’re letting go of Max “ruuit” Aspe who has been with us for nearly three years, but sadly couldn’t put in as much time anymore as the rest of us wanted to.”

Crack! CS 1.6 are:

  • Tomi “lurppis” Kovanen
  • Samu “plastE” Aalto
  • Niko “naSu” Kovanen
  • Juuso “contE” Sajakoski
