The Australian shuffle seems to have started as ORDER add Karlo ‘USTILO’ Pivac to its line-up, replacing Joshua ‘Ins’ Potter. With the Berlin Major 2019 already underway, the local teams are preparing well in advance for the next season of Counter-Strike.
USTILO in the past has played for Australian organizations like Renegades and Tainted Minds (now ICON Esports). He also stood in as a substitute for FaZe Clan during IEM Sydney 2019, which was also his last outing in a LAN event.
He brings with him great experience and international exposure having played in FACEIT Major London 2018, ESL One Cologne 2018, and ELEAGUE Major Boston 2018, among many other top-tier tournaments.
Note: The move is being made as their might be a possibility of Ins joining Grayhound Gaming after the Berlin Major 2019. He will be coming in as a replacement for Erdenetsogt ‘erkaSt’ Gantulga, who will be leaving the organization and going back to Mongolia following visa issues.
Ins who had been with ORDER for about a year via a TwitLonger post said that he thoroughly enjoyed his time in the organization and the line-up did not yield great results. But he accepts all of it and thanking everyone in the organization waits to see what the future beholds for him.
ORDER gave the following statement while bidding farewell to the youngster,
"Josh has been a class act internallyand externally while playing for the club, and we have no doubt that his talent and skill will continue to be applied at the highest level. Thank you for your time with the roster, and we wish you all the best moving forward in your career."
ORDER has always been an average Australian organization, failing to reach the top of the local circuit facing stiff competition from teams like Grayhound Gaming and Chiefs. Slowly over the past year, the team has been gathering experienced and talented individuals to help them out of this slump.
ORDER recently acquired the services of Matthew ‘Valiance’ Hartrick who came in as a replacement for Charlie ‘zeph’ Dodd, and now with USTILO making its way into the Australian roster, the team looks really solid.
Yes, the departure of Chris ‘Elmapuddy’ Tebbit will be a slight blow for the team who are currently without a coach.
As far as the roster goes, they can really do some damage within Oceania, but only time will tell how they really match-up against teams like Chiefs and Grayhound Gaming.
USTILO will be debuting for the side in the upcoming ESEA MDL S32. Let's see how good does the team do in the regional circuit.
The current ORDER line-up is as follows,
Chris ‘emagine’ Rowlands
Jordan ‘Hatz’ Bajic
Alistair ‘aliStair’ Johnston
Karlo ‘USTILO’ Pivac
Matthew ‘Valiance’ Hartrick
