We are pleased to announce the newest member of our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive female roster.
After announcing the departure of Julie after Copenhagen Games last month, we have been steadily working on the completion of our CS:GO female roster. The team around their captain Lisa 'shifty' Catino have been working hard to earn their next chance to show what they are capable of - and they have done so qualifying for the ESU Masters in Jönköping during DreamHack Summer!
While they played and completed that qualifier with iLLa as a substitute (thanks again by the way), we can finally present the fifth member of their lineup: Nikolett 'nylon' Keszeli!
The 23-year-old Hungarian plays Counter-Strike since 2005 and made the switch to Global Offensive in late 2012. Her career took a huge upturn when she joined the former Games4u roster in May of 2015 which later evolved to WERUNTHISPLACE and finally, they joined Team Secret at the beginning of 2016. Together, they were able to win the E-Frag Rising Stars Season 2: Female, the Intel Challenge Katowice 2016, Copenhagen Games 2016 as well as the StarLadder Female Stars Championship.
Now, together with her new team mates, she will try to reach similar heights once again.
Lisa 'shifty' Catino explains why the team has decided to go with Nikolett:
"We would like to welcome Nikolett "nicilicious" Keszeli as our new 5th! In the past weeks we have been busy with testing a new potential 5th for our current roster. After some try outs with different girls our decision was made. We decided to go with Nikolett "nicilicious" Keszeli because she convinced us not only with her playstyle smart and experienced also with her personality, keeping calm in stressful situations, willing and motivated to grow and sharing her experience with us. I am pretty sure we just can benefit from each other."
Here is what Nikolett herself has to say about the move:
"I'm happy to join Team expert. I've only heard good things about the organization and I hope things will work out great and I believe we can do damage within the scene, even on short notice. Can't wait to represent the organization at Dreamhack Summer which will be our first tournament together and show what we're capable of"
Join us in welcoming her and make sure to keep an eye on these girls as they prepare to conquer Jönköping next month!
