Wildcard confirm entry into CS:GO
As first reported by Dust2.us, Wildcard have today confirmed their entry in CS:GO with the acquisition of Detonate's roster. The move sees the squad, ranked eighth in North America on HLTV, make the jump to the larger more well-established organization that also currently hosts teams in Dota 2 and Rainbow Six: Siege, among other titles.
One change that has come to pass since Dust2.us' report is that Danish coach Philippe "Winspai" Mølgaard Ouabaid has exited the project, leaving the team on the lookout for a new head coach. Jeremy "Jeremy9000" Gray, who has joined Wildcard as the CS:GO manager, told Dust2.us that Wildcard are in the process of deciding on the Dane's replacement.
While this new squad recently missed on the BLAST.tv Paris Americas RMR due to unfortunate circumstances, they are viewed as upcomers in the NA scene, having made ECL playoffs last season while regularly challenging squads ranked above them in competitive series.
Wildcard are now:
Matthew "Cryptic" Whitmore
Adam "freshie" Paterson
Jack "micro" Ryan
Brett "brett" Rhein
Keller "SLIGHT" Nilan
Jeremy "Jeremy9000" Gray (Manager)
Wildcard will make their proper introduction into CS:GO when they play their first match in ESL Challenger League Season 45 against Limitless on April 26th.
