Rasta Gaming sign ex-XENEX line-up

by Michael MoriartyMarch 16, 2017

After bouncing around organisations for the past couple months, Rasta Gaming has brought in the former Team XENEX line-up. After being separated from Team exceL, in some notable circumstances, they swiftly joined Team XENEX but, due to a mix of circumstances, they’ve moved on once again.

After having issues shaping their line-up properly, leading to a lot of stability issues and issues with performance, they mutually parted ways with XENEX. A few days later, they’ve joined UK Scene mainstay Rasta, after their previous team suffered (according to rasta.gg) an “alleged death”. The team are currently competing in ESEA Main, and have just solidified their place there.

Team captain, Luke “EMPEROR” Ingram said:

When you leave two organisations in as many months it makes you wonder where you are going wrong and we have kept it as professional as we can with keeping away from social media and such.

After departing from XENEX I sat down and thought what was next for us. I had spoken to Blanks at epic.20 about the UK scene and having known him for many years it felt it was always an avenue we could down. Ultimately there are very few organisations that stretch back as far as Rasta that have continued to back UK teams when no others would and for little return. The offered support from Rasta and Blanks was hard for us to turn away from even with offers on the table from other organisations.

We will now look to stabilise and push forward with a line-up that at last is rid of RL problems and activity issues that have held us back for the opening months of 2017. Although the changes have been a struggle we feel rejuvenated to get back to grinding.

Thanks again to Blanks, Rasta and all though affiliated with Rasta. We shall do our best to reward the chance given.

The new Rasta Gaming line-up is:

Luke “EMPEROR” Ingram
Michael “GhosTy” Armstrong
Karl “KoRaL-” Philip
Calvin “faix” Palmer
Shaun “SDK” Kennedy
