Edward Gaming, one of the powerhouses in the Chinese LOL scene recently announced that they are venturing into CS:GO. This is one of the first big venture orgnaistaions from the region to foray into CS:GO.
Other organisations such as LGD, Ehome are expected to follow suit soon.
Their current roster includes :
- Jianwei ‘wjw’ Wang
- Zihao “Haoking” Han
- Minhui “sPinach” Sun
- Yi “pohant” Ding
- Kun “ABR” Qian
This roster does not raise much eyebrows. The only “big players” within this team are wjw and Haoking. They recently played in the just-concluded Starseries LAN finals for All gamers.
The roster is quite inexperienced, but with the backing of a very good gaming organisation, we have seen weaker teams become much better. This follows up of the recently announced news of a $100,000 Chinese CSGO tournament.
