It’s been rough few months for the North American organization. Ever since their French roster disbanded, Envy had trouble getting international success. Even locally the team struggled to perform, most recently failing to qualify to IEM Katowice 2020. However with a new roster change on the horizon all that may soon change.
Ever since Michał “MICHU” Müller left the ranks of ex-Virtus.pro, the topic of his future has been the subject of heated discussions among native supporters. The 23-year-old announced that he would like to try his hand at an international team, for which he would prepare additional English lessons. As a Polish esports site cybersport.pl announced, the next stop in the career of the player from Grudziądz will be Team Envy.
The American organization had to build its CS:GO division almost from scratch, because after the last personnel turmoil only two players remained in it. According to unnamed sources, both Noah “Nifty” Francis and Ryan “ryann” Welsh will keep their place in the composition. In addition to Müller, Buğra “Calyx” Arkın and Nikola “LEGIJA” Ninić will join this duo, the latter will take over the duties of a coach.
It was an experienced German who had a key voice during the team picking process and spotted the young talent to join the team. At the time of preparing the article, the fifth player’s name remains the question mark, which originally was to be an up-and-coming teenager Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras, but now the Lithuanian candidacy is no longer considered.
After signing the contract with the new organization, the European players will move overseas, where they will live permanently. This level of commitment held the Lithuanian youngster from getting his big break, as he is still in school.
Team Envy roster will look as follows:
- Noah “Nifty” Francis
- Ryan “ryann” Welsh
- Buğra “Calyx” Arkın
- Michał “MICHU” Müller
- Nikola “LEGIJA” Ninić – coach
