Epiphany Acquire New CS:GO Team

Sun 26th Apr 2015 - 11:11pm General Gaming

 

Epiphany Interactive are proud to announce the acquisition of the Finnish CS:GO team formerly known as ‘tryPANTS’. After a string of impressive performances recently, we are happy to welcome them into the Epiphany family. We hope that by working together, even greater success can be achieved in the future.

 

Under the name ‘tryPANTS’, the team achieved a top-three finish at LanTrek as well as first place in both the ESEA Intermediate Season 18 and ESEA BenQ Cup. Now known as ‘Epiphany’, we look ahead to them competing in the ESEA Main Season 19 and the RCTIC event in Helsinki, starting May 15th.

 

Meet The Players

 

Carrying the Epiphany flag into those events will be:

Eetu ‘sAw-’ Saha -  

 Sami ‘xseveN’ Laasanen -

 Saku ‘SAGGERTON’ Jokinen -  

 Lasse ‘ZOREE’ Uronen -

 Jussi ‘gstus’ Perälä -  

 

Speaking with Jussi 'gstus' Perälä, he shared some of his thoughts about joining the Epiphany family:

“Today is the first day in a long time when we have a shirt to put on with our tryPANTS. It’s a truly great feeling to be wearing Epiphany colors of purple and gold with our pants! The first real test for us wearing Epiphany colors will be the RCTIC games on May 15th – 17th in Helsinki. And we truly want to give results right away! First of all we want to thank Jimmy and all the rest Epiphany crew on believing us and our capability to bring success. We know that we can truly speed up our progress and become a great team with backing of Epiphany.”

 

Epiphany’s co-owner, Jimmy ‘Betrayed’ Barendt, had this to say about the latest acquisition:

"We had been looking for a talented CS:GO squad to bolster the Epiphany ranks for a while, but they needed to have the right quality both in and outside of the game. Upon speaking with the tryPANTS guys, we were impressed with the professionalism of this team. With the stability and success the roster has shown over the years, I believe that together we can become the best team in Finland! I promise there will be a lot of action from these guys and top placements."

 

Looking ahead, we believe that this agreement can bring great things to all involved and we can't help but be excited for the future. So we invite you to give our new players a warm welcome and support them in their upcoming competitions.
