Renegades after an absence of more than a month from competitive counter-strike have announced their return, as they sign the Grayhound lineup, who will be adorning the Renegades jerseys, starting ESL Pro League Season 10 - Finals taking place in Odense, Denmark.

The NA based esports organization who were previously associated with the Australian line-up of AZR and co., have gone ahead and signed another Australian roster after their previous lineup was signed to 100Thieves.

Grayhound is currently the best team from the Oceania region, they dominate each and every international qualifier taking place in the region, successfully qualifying for back-to-back majors, StarLadder Berlin 2019 and IEM Katowice 2019.

Though the team was not able to make a deep run in the tournaments, the fact that they are consistently able to represent the region in multiple international tournaments despite being so distant from other countries, just adds to the fact that how much-untapped potential still remains to be pulled out from this team.

Jonas “rebko” Jerebko, Owner of Renegades said that,

“They (Grayhound) have been on our radar for a long time, they proved to the world that they are a top counter-strike team, we believe that they can take the next step with us. There is a lot of talent and hard work in this team and we believe that with this move we will establish ourselves at the top of the counter-strike world once again.”

Renegades were able to achieve great results with its previous lineup and seem to be putting their trust and money in another team from the same region. With Renegades up against Astralis in their opening match of ESL Pro League Season 10 - Finals, let’s see how good of a lift can the new Renegades lineup achieve after this last-minute takeoff.
