However the CSGO division of the club folded in 2015 itself. 2016 has not seen Melty eSports club take part in CSGO .
They will soon be releasing all their professional players ranging from eSports in CSGO to Overwatch. The latest Melty Overwatch team is a very good team having consistently performed at a high level since their inception. They were one of the original behemoths in the game.
