Denial Esports acquires fan-favorite CS:GO squad amid funding woes
One of CS:GO’s most inspiring up-and-coming teams, Bravado Gaming’s Project Destiny, just landed what seems to be a permanent spot, relieving them of their viral funding woes.
Project Destiny was the tag that Bravado gave its CS:GO team made up of incredibly talented South African talent, to train and compete in the United States, but after difficulties for its funding forced them to crowdfund for answers, things were looking grim.
Now, a resurgent Denial Esports has come forward to save Project Destiny as the org finalized proceedings to welcome the South Africans to the Wolfpack.

The captain of the squad, Dimitri ‘Detrony’ Hadjipaschali has decided to stay with Bravado to continue in the South African org’s undisclosed future goals.
Before the signing, Bravado had resorted to Indiegogo to help crowdfund their place on the international stage, but since the team has been signed to another org it will issue refunds for campaign donors
While Bravado was sad to see the end of Project Destiny, the org made sure to let supporters know that they will be “continuing its efforts to establish a world-class Counter-Strike team.”
Since ownership shifted to CEO of MoneyMatches Zach Smith and Patrick ‘BlackBeardAP’ E. Smith Sr., Denial has been on a series of signings spanning the entire esports landscape, and now fans of the org will have a CS:GO team to cheer on.
