Back to the roots
Team ROCCAT now with CS:GO division
Hamburg, 23 July 2015 – German peripheral manufacturer ROCCAT has a proven track record in eSports, with a deep involvement in competition gaming over the course of many years. The Hamburg-based company now expands its roster by signing the Finnish CS:GO team ENCORE. With Counter-Strike still amongst the most important eSports titles worldwide, this is a commitment to professional gaming in general, an investment into the future and an appreciation of the strong impact the game has had on eSports, all at once.
Markus Frey, head of marketing at ROCCAT, comments: “Counter-Strike has long been one of the mainstays of eSports and is a series that we as a gaming company hold close to our heart. Within the history of ROCCAT we have supported two especially successful Counter-Strike teams, both coincidentally also from Finland. With this new group of Finns we close a circle that started with CS 1.6, and we proudly throw our full weight behind them in their bid to reach the top.”
The team’s first major tournament will be the qualifier for ESL One in Cologne, with the matches starting 25 July.
