Today, Epsilon announced their return to CS:GO with a new European roster. The roster contains a few familiar faces with two players being from the UK. Their main goal will be to begin to compete with Europe’s best teams with the first step being a strong performance in the Mountain Dew League this season. So who will be representing the UK in the new Epsilon roster?
The first UK player who is continuing to play with Epsilon is Kia “Surreal” Man. He has been part of this lineup for some time and competed in the Mountain Dew League alongside Smooya prior to his departure to BIG. Surreal is the support player for the team, providing the assistance for other players to shine. He is very versatile and can slot in and perform well wherever the team needs him.
The other UK player in this lineup is Aaron “frei” Frei and is a new addition to the team. Aaron has been competing at a high level within the UK scene for some time but got his big break (like many UK players) in the Gfinity Elite Series. He played for Infused during both seasons. His strong performances led to a spot on the Stifmeister lineup who were later acquired by Wind and Rain. They were released by the organisation in August. This was Frei’s last team prior to signing with Epsilon. Frei is the bombsite anchor and lurker in Epsilon. He has an excellent understanding of enemies’ timing and rotations as well as being able to manage his utility superbly.
Jamie “Keita” Hall will be continuing to help the team improve and refine their game as coach.
The full Epsilon lineup is as follows:
Joey “CRUC1AL” Steusel
Benjamin “BlameF” Bremer
Daniel “djL” Narancic
Kia “Surreal” Man
Jamie “Keita” Hall (Coach)
So there you have it! #EpsiCSGO is complete.
Join us in wishing them the best of luck in their time with us. pic.twitter.com/gvYjxoN8Th
