Known by the League of Legends community, the Gen.G organization announced earlier this December, the 6th, the entry into the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scenario. The announcement was made by social networks along with the three player presentation.
We are honored to join the CS:GO community and welcome three veteran players as the core of our CS roster.
Two more players will be announced in the coming weeks.

The South Korean organization released the first part of the CS: GO line-up, which will feature three athletes who were performing at Cloud9. So far, Timothy “autimatic” Ta and Kenneth “koosta” Suen, as well as Canadian In-Game Leader Damian “daps” Steele are already confirmed on the team. However, the tweet stated a bold goal by stating that it wants to “bring another Major to North America.”
The fourth player announced was American Sam “s0m” Oh from the Envyus team. And then, the last name announced was Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand from Singapore who was on the TYLOO team. Meanwhile, Coach Chris “Elmapuddy” Tebbit is from Australia. The cast will be based in North America. There, the team will live, train and compete in both local and world-class tournament qualifiers.

Despite the young age, the team hope to count on the experience of Timothy “autimatic” Ta, who has already won the ELEAGUE Major 2018 for the Cloud 9 team.
Despite not having the full line-up at the time, Gen.G already had the first test with the new cast. The matches were validated by the US Open IEM Katowice 2020 qualifier, in which the sextet got the spot in the closed stage. They now return between January 7 and 9 to play only one seat with seven other participating teams.
