A Turkish CS:GO dream team which was initially teased by woxic in June might actually be in the works following XANTARES departure from BIG.
The reported Turkish CS:GO lineup consists of XANTARES, woxic, imoRR, Calyx, and paz.
Multiple Turkish esports websites have reported about this super team, with one claiming it to be acquired by Sangal Esports.

German esports organization, Berlin International Gaming (BIG) officially moved their star rifler, Ismailсan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş to the transfer list yesterday on 1st August, signing Nicklas "gade" Gade as his replacement. This move sparked off heavy speculation about the formation of a Turskish CS:GO dream team, something that had been teased by Özgür "woxic" Eker in June earlier this year. At that point in time, it was reported that XANTARES might leave BIG after IEM Cologne 2021, something that has actually come true. XANTARES is leaving BIG a few months before his contract is set to expire at the end of 2021, with Daniel Finkler - BIG's CEO coming forward to state that,

We are currently considering incoming transfer offers in close cooperation with XANTARES and will announce updates as soon as we have found an appropriate solution for all parties.

Turkish CS:GO super team reportedly in the works

A Turskish CS:GO dream team that was teased a few months back in June, might finally be coming true with news about XANTARES on his way out being officially confirmed by BIG.

Multiple Turkish esports websites like Gamerbase and TEW Esports have come forward to reveal this Turkish CS:GO lineup, which according to them is as follows,

  • Özgür "woxic" Eker - AWPer

  • Ismailсan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş - IGL

  • Ömer "imoRR" Karataş - Rifler / Entry Fragger

  • Buğra "Calyx" Arkın - Rifler / Support

  • Ahmet "paz" Karahoca - Rifler / Support

Not only this, Gamerbase has further claimed that this lineup is already in talks with Turkish esports organization, Sangal Esports, who shifted their headquarters to the Netherlands on 28th July.

At this point in time, both imoRR and paz are already a part of Sangal Esports active roster which also consists of other players like Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli, Engin "ngiN" Kor, and Efekan "S3NSEY" Topaloğlu.

As for the other CS:GO players that are speculated to be picked up by Sangal Esports, none of them are officially tied to an organization except for XANTARES. Both woxic and Clayx are free agents, the former having left Cloud9 in January earlier this year while the latter was last seen in action along with a team called gorillazzz in April.

No official announcement has been made by any of the parties involved, so all the reported information provided above needs to be taken with a grain of salt. It is unclear what will happen to the current Sangal Esports roster, in case the Turkish organization signs the three new players.

Current Sangal Esports CS:GO lineup,

  • Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli - IGL

  • Ahmet "paz" Karahoca

  • Engin "ngiN" Kor

  • Ömer "imoRR" Karataş

  • Efekan "S3NSEY" Topaloğlu

  • Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran - Coach
