M80 are already making modifications to their Counter-Strike roster simply months after buying it.

The workforce, which was fashioned below the M80 banner in July, has already dropped AWPer Adam “WolfY” Andersson from its beginning roster.

Based on a report from HLTV, M80 are targeting ALTERNATE aTTaX player Fritz “⁠slaxz-⁠” Dietrich, who notched a 1.20 HLTV Ranking over 2023’s competitions. The transfer might improve M80’s firepower whereas permitting them to retain their place within the Americas.

The influence of the AWP within the latest Counter-Strike entry, CS2, is but to be outlined. With restricted information, it actually looks as if there isn’t a real necessity for a dominant AWPer. The components is easy: fewer rounds in CS2 means fewer AWPs, which suggests much less influence. Moreover, CS2 isn’t probably the most steady recreation when it comes to shot registration proper now, which severely hurts anybody making an attempt to hit a single shot for a single kill.

All the identical, M80 seem to have acquired a strong participant at a beneficial place for a cut price value. The buyouts and salaries of high CS expertise are huge, and getting a participant who can punch near their manufacturing for much less is a win. Time will inform how slaxz suits into the roster, however the theoretical value level is already a win for the up-and-coming M80 roster.

The workforce, whereas new, has not impressed in opposition to tier-one competitors simply but. They have been eradicated from Thunderpick World Championship rivalry early, and whereas they’re in ESL’s Professional League, they have been eradicated from Season 18 rivalry with out successful a single map. In fact, these outcomes got here in CS:GO, and CS2 is a brand new recreation, however modifications have been wanted. Nevertheless, the workforce might have extra upgrades than a brand new AWPer in the event that they need to really contend within the area, a lot much less on a world stage.
