moistcr1tikal: "I definitely want to get into CS:GO for sure"
Earlier this week, on a stream with Tarik "tarik" Celik and Ludwig Anders Ahgren, the three talked about potentially entering the Counter-Strike space in the future. The three were livestreaming a VALORANT game between FaZe and Moist Moguls, the VALORANT team owned by Charles "moistcr1tikal" White Jr and Ludwig.
Content creators owning professional esports teams is a new trend bourgeoning in North American VALORANT. Earlier this year, Jeremy "Disguised Toast" Wang, another streamer, kickstarted the movement by picking up an orgless team. Now, Ludwig and moistcr1tikal have joined in, and Félix "xQc" Lengyel, yet another content creator, is also reportedly in discussions to pick up a team himself.
cr1tikal is no newcomer to the streamer-owned team however, operating Moist Esports since 2021. His organization currently competes in Guilty Gear Strive, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Brawlhalla, and Apex Legends along with the Moist Moguls team in VALORANT.
During the stream, conversation steered towards CS:GO and the Source 2 update, at which point Tarik asked the two if they would ever consider entering the CSGO space. While Ludwig dismissed the idea, saying he already co-owned a VALORANT squad, moistcr1tikal said "I definitely want to get into CS:GO for sure."
After watching their Moist Moguls team dominate FaZe, the three of them then joined Hasan "HasanAbi" Piker and Disguised Toast to play Counter-Strike.
