    Post news about the competitive scenes and the teams.

    The NA shuffles is real. Prepare to see some of your favorite players dropped or switch to a different team if you watch the NA scene. Shazam most likely dropped from c9 and CLG are definitely replacing players.

    ESL and ESEA team up to form a new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive league

    PC Gamer

    ESL and ESEA have teamed up to form the ESL ESEA Pro League, the biggest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament in the history of the game. The league will consist of two divisions, one in North America and one in Europe, with 12 invited teams per division battling for their share of a $1 million prize pool.

    ESL started out with Counter-Strike more than fifteen years ago," ESL Managing Director Ralf Reichert said. "Now, many years later, we are extremely excited to be in a position where we can take the industry to the next level with the first regular US$500,000 Counter-Strike league together with ESEA."

    Pro league seasons will be scheduled around Valve-supported majors, with weekly online matches that "aim to consolidate the Counter-Strike market by providing consistent high quality content to the global esports audience." Full travel support will also be extended to teams taking part in the four-day offline finals that will be held in Burbank, California, and Cologne, Germany

    The North American lineup has not yet been announced, but the European division will consist of the following teams:

    Team Dignitas

    Team EnVyUs

    FlipSid3 Tactics

    fnatic

    HellRaisers

    mousesports

    Natus Vincere

    Ninjas In Pyjamas

    PENTA Sports

    Team SoloMid

    Titan

    Virtus.Pro

    It's not known how this jibes with reports from earlier this month that the ESL was negotiating with Twitch to create a new CS:GO league independent of Valve. No mention of Twitch was made in the announcement, and while it's a reasonable bet that this is somehow related to those talks—especially given the intent to "schedule around" Valve-sponsored events—it may also be a sort of "Plan B" instead. Whatever the case, Ulrich Schulze, ESL's managing director of pro gaming, made it clear that the new league is not exclusive.

    "There is no exclusivity attached to ESL ESEA Pro League," he wrote on Twitter. "Teams can play whatever tournaments they want on the side."

    ESL ESEA Pro League action will begin on May 4. Details are up at pro.eslgaming.com.

    yeah, that's exactly why i'm confuse penta pick up troubley again, maybe they needed a decent player despite his attitude? But only krystal remain from the old penta team so i wonder how troubley and krystal will act toward each other and they finally removed enkay J, now penta have a possible chance to being decent again.
