Pro League is becoming interesting...

ATK to use Macedonian star

A last minute change has been made for the Pro League roster, with ATK making a wild player inclusion.

With Pro League coming so soon after the end of the Paris Major North American RMR Closed Qualifier, it looks like one team is already making a change.

ATK, which failed to make the upcoming Paris Major Americas RMR in Monterrey, Mexico this April, have already elected to make a significant change to their worldwide roster by electing to bring in Aleksandar "CacaNito" Kjulukoski from BLUEJAYS for their upcoming ESL Pro League Season 17 campaign in place of Saad "Pluto" Siraj.

CacaNito has turned heads recently with his standout performances in Europe's second tier. Over the last three months, the young rifler has posted a 1.16 HLTV Rating, a 1.25 Impact Rating, and a 68.8% KAST. There is some concern that the player might not be immediately ready to face off against the tough opposition in Pro League as he has not played a single Top 30 team within the last three months. Within the last twelve months, he has posted a 1.10 Rating, 1.09 Impact, and 69.5% KAST against Top 30 competition, which is a respectable output.

It is unknown why Pluto has been left off of the Pro League roster, where he is not even listed as a substitute for the team. has reached out to ATK, however the team has not responded at the time of publication.

With CacaNito's addition for Pro League, ATK are expected to be:

  • Gareth "MisteM" Ries

  • Sweden Jonathan "b0denmaster" Bodenmalm

  • United States Michael "Swisher" Schmid

  • Canada Jonathan "djay" Dallal

  • Aleksandar "CacaNito" Kjulukoski

  • Daniel "sprayxd" Kogan (Coach)

ATK's Pro League season doesn't start for a long time as their next match is against ENCE on March 15th.

I'm less convinced by Djay than Pluto tbh, but either way, this is a super strong move. The entry potential between Swisher and CacaNito is crazy. Also the flags look so pretty now lol

I think whats crazy is that CacaNito to ATK would be such an insane move for everyone involved. It's almost like, the most random transfer you could imagine.

Oh for sure. It's at least as out-of-left-field as Nealan to EG. If anything is possible, Annihilation to ATK?
