Esports News – Polish esports team PRIDE Gaming, winner of the most recent Legends Cup, is set to revamp their entire CSGO line-up in preparation for future tournaments. After revealing the last two players for their new roster, PRIDE has announced a new lineup for the next three months.
PRIDE welcomed the arrival of Tomasz “ToM223” Richter and Maciek “Luz” Bugaj less than a week ago, the last two pro players remaining from their previous roster to complete the list. Now, PRIDE revealed a new lineup which includes Bulgarian players Ivan “Rock1nG” Stratiev and Nikola “NK4Y” Radushev from Without Warning and Outlaws Esports.
Rock1nG, who has been part of the Houston Outlaws since September of last year, transferred to PRIDE because of a dispute involving his previous teammates. Despite his team winning several regional tournaments, including back-to-back ESL South East Europe Championships and the AdriaMasters Finals, he has decided to further his career elsewhere after his teammates expressed the desire to have him benched. Rock1nG shared in an interview: “We knew who PRIDE are. We played them many times. Now I can represent this organization with my new teammates. We have a lot of motivation, we want to show good CS. We are very happy to join this organization. Our first games in the ESL Polish Championships will be hard (against Team Kinguin and AGO), but we know that we are able to win. Thank you for the trust, PRIDE. To the battle!”
The new lineup for PRIDE will be valid for the following three months. Luz, however, will come back as a substitute for the team in the ESL Polish Championship. The lineup also includes three other Polish players, a replacement set for Gabriel “gaB” Jaroszuk, Konrad “EXUS” Jeńczeń, and Piotr “morelz” Taterka.hahah
PRIDE’s will put their new lineup to test in the ESL Polish Championship. They will face two of the strongest teams in Poland, Kinguin and AGO.

Bulgaria Nikola “NK4Y” Radushev

Bulgaria Ivan “Rock1nG” Stratiev
