First reported by neL for 1pv, the news is now official that c0ntact Gaming has entering CS:GO following the acquisition of the CR4ZY roster.

The c0ntact Gaming roster will be formed of the following players:

  • Georgi "SHiPZ" Grigorov
  • Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas
  • Otto "ottoNd" Sihvo
  • Nestor "LETN1" Tanić
  • Luka "emi" Vuković
  • Neil "NeiL_M" Murphy (coach)

The organisation formerly known as Valiance & Co caused some upsets heading into the StarLadder Berin Major 2019, denying Heroic a spot at the Europe Minor before knocking out the legendary Fnatic in a Lower Bracket run that saw them through to the main competition.

A 2-3 finish in the New Legends Stage was enough to secure the core a spot at the next Major, ESL One Rio, in May. This will now be taken by the players over to c0ntact Gaming.

CR4ZY initially lost its star players Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač  and Nemanja "nexa" Isaković to G2 Esports following the conclusion of the Major, but the team bounced back with a win at DreamHack Open Rotterdam over familiar foe Heroic to end the year on a high.

Coach Neil "NeiL_M" Murphy took to Twitter to thank his former organisation and had nothing but kind words for the support provided.

While the c0ntact Gaming name is a newcomer to the CS:GO scene, the organisation has made big moves in numerous esports titles including both Paris Eternal and Paris Legion, of the Overwatch League and Call of Duty League respectively.

CR4ZY seems set to continue within CS:GO as CEO Antonio Meic posted a photo to social media that showed Ivan "Johnta" Shevtsov linked to a possible future project.
