The Malaysian organization FrostFire has announced an addition to their CS:GO roster, with Andrew ‘bali’ Joseph joins the squad as their new coach in a bid to raise their game and help them stand out in the Asian scene.
FrostFire is one of the stronger teams from the SEA region. They are mighty successful in winning local events, standing number one in Malaysia while also representing them at both the IeSF World Championship 2018 and WESG 2018.
But the problem lies in the fact that despite celebrating great success within the local circuit the team has not been able to qualify through the SEA qualifiers for international events. This, along with their star player Ahmad Khalish Rusyaidee Bin Nordin aka d4v41 leaving for the Singaporean giant B.O.O.T-d[S] had been a struggling period for the team.
FrostFire did pick up two youngsters back in March and though they have grown as players, the overall impact has not been sufficient enough. With the addition of Bali the team might be creating a better synergy amongst themselves with a bid to do well in the coming events.
The new coach is quite experienced having spent around seven years within the industry. During his years as a player, he has played for the most successful Singaporean team, TitaNs eSports followed by other teams like Recca Esports and Executioners, who he later went on to coach as well.
Taking up this responsibility, it will be his second gig as a coach. Hope the team flourishes well under his guidance and goes on to qualify for an international event.
The current FrostFire line-up is as follows,
Aiman ‘aimaNNN’ Azham
Ashraf ‘acAp’ Firdaus
Shamir ‘Subbey’ Zaman
Mohd ‘Avirity’ Arsad
Affiq ‘Nutr1x’ Affendy
Andrew ‘bali’ Joseph [Coach]
