Renegades Parts Ways With CS:GO Roster, ORDER Signs Entire Lineup
The Oceanic lineup is left without a team!
Renegades has parted ways with its Oceanic CS:GO lineup consisting of players from both New Zealand and Australia. The announcement was made earlier today, but just when everyone started talking about the future of the best team from the APAC (Asia Pacific) region, Australian esports organization ORDER signed the entire lineup including the coach and team manager.
With this, ORDER returns to fielding a competitive CS:GO roster after exactly one month, following the release of its previous lineup in May. Under its new organization, the team will be seen in action at the upcoming ESL Pro League Conference Season 16 scheduled to take place from 15th to 20th June.
ORDER returns to competitive CS:GO by signing the Renegades roster
Australian esports organization, ORDER, had released its previous lineup in May while stating that it was carefully considering its options and plans moving forward. Now, a month later it has signed the entire roster of Renegades, just a few weeks ahead of the ESL Pro League Conference Season 16.
The new roster that just got signed had won the ESL ANZ Champs Season 14 in May while playing under the banner of Renegades. ORDER's previous lineup had placed third and had automatically managed to qualify for the upcoming Season 16 Conference.
The new lineup will now be competing in ORDER, trying their best to place within the top six as only those teams will be moving further to the group stage of ESL Pro League Season 16. It will also be the first international tournament for ORDER in quite some time with the event set to take place in a LAN studio environment at Jönköping, Sweden.
"It’s a bit of a school reunion here at ORDER, with all of these players representing us in previous years. We’re excited to see them rock the fresh new purple and train in our newly kitted out ORDER HQ," read a statement from ORDER.
Moving forward it will be interesting to see how ORDER continues to perform in regional and international tournaments, while it also frees up space in Renegades who might have already started gathering players for its new CS:GO roster.
