Unlike most traditional sports and other esports games, Counter-Strike doesn’t have a set transfer window within which teams buy, sell or trade players. Transfer activity is usually higher during tournament breaks in summer and winter, but we haven’t seen many blockbuster plays this year.

apEX and zonic will reportedly work together on Vitality

Why is it starting to happen now? Well, the majors in CS: GO are the ultimate target. It’s the events that every player qualifies for, that they want to participate in and ultimately win. Organizations want to be a part of it, not just because majors target their team and sponsors, but also because of the huge cash injections they provide through in-game stickers.

The scoring system of the regional major rankings, which penalizes teams for changes to their five-man line-up with a 20% penalty, discouraged some teams from making changes unless they were absolutely necessary. Others were happy with what they had, but disappointing results ahead of the PGL Major Stockholm or at the event changed their minds. In addition, many player contracts will expire near the end of the year, so swaps are inevitable.

All of this combined for interesting changes that are listed in this article – which we will continue to update in the coming days.

The same outlet claims Complexity is considering signing the roster, with a follow-up message that Fernando. connects “⁠Fer⁠” Alvarenga and Lincoln “⁠Fnx⁠” Run to the project. Our editor Milan “⁠Former⁠” Švejda doesn’t like the idea.

Report: Magisk, dupreeh, zonic to Vitality

Denmark Vitality overhauls the roster with the Astralis trio for 2022

Richard “⁠Shox⁠” Papillon, Jayson “⁠Kyojin⁠” Nguyen Van and trainer Rémy “⁠XTQZZZ⁠” Quoniam is reportedly on his way out of the team but is expected to play for Vitality for the rest of the year. That’s because Emil “⁠Magisk⁠” Ripe, Peter “⁠Dupreeh⁠” Rasmussen and Danny “⁠Zonic⁠” Sørensen will have to wait for his Astralis contract to expire before he can take on a new challenge in his career.

Evil geniuses turn a new (old?) Page

North America Stanislaw, oBo, MICHU departure EG

The prime example of a team that’s well past its expiration date but still stuck together are Evil Geniuses. The move paid off as, despite their terrible shape, they miraculously secured a place with the major all year round.

At the actual event, of course, they had no chance, and shortly after the 3-0 draw, the organization announced radical changes in the team. Evil Geniuses now consists of three members: Tsvetelin “⁠CeRq⁠” Dimitrov, Vincent “⁠Brehze⁠” Cayonte and trainer Damian “⁠Daps⁠” Steele – a core trio whose history goes back to 2017 and NRG. Peter “⁠Stanislaw⁠” Jarguz, Owen “⁠OBo⁠” Schlatter and Michał “⁠MICHU⁠” Müller have become free agents.

The NRG trio is everything that stayed on EG

Spirit first announced that they would be with star rifleman Nikolay. would rebuild “⁠Mir⁠” Bityukov and IGL Leonid “⁠Chopper⁠” Vishnyakov was put on the transfer list a few days later.

The duo were at the core of Complexity’s 2020 success and have so much more to give at the age of 24. The management tasks in the game remain with the four-time major winner Lukas “⁠Gla1ve⁠” Rossander, who is supported by head coach Alexander “⁠Ave⁠” Holdt. Meanwhile, reports say that Lucas “⁠Bubzkji⁠” Andersen is on his way out of the team.
