Team Envy add three new players as part of CS:GO roster overhaul
North American professional esports organization Team Envy have completed a major overhaul of their pro CounterStrike: Global Offensive roster.
Envy announced on March 22nd that they had signed Sam ‘s0m’ Oh, Bradley ‘ANDROID’ Fodor, and Jacob ‘FugLy’ Medina to their pro CS:GO team.
In order to make room for the three new players, Envy also announced that they had parted ways with Taylor ‘Drone’ Johnson and Steven ‘reltuC’ Cutler.
The roster already had a vacant spot following the IEM Sydney: North American Qualifier when stand-in player Finn ‘karrigan’ Anderson left the team to return to FaZe Clan.
With Envy’s roster shuffle now complete, the three new players have already been thrust into action with their new team, joining ‘Nifty’ Francis and Josh ‘jdm64’ Marzano in the Dreamhack Masters Dallas Closed Qualifier.
The three new additions to Envy’s roster all come from different backgrounds and levels of experience. ANDROID, who joined from compLexity Gaming, played an instrumental role in his former team’s first place finish at the Americas Minor Championship – London 2018.
FugLy joined Envy after spending over two years with NRG Esports and was part of the squad the took first place at the recent Katowice 2019 Americas Minor.
s0m, who has the least playing experience of the three, is widely considered a promising talent, and is coming off a successful spell with Swole Patrol.
Envy will certainly hope that their new recruits will help take the team to a whole new level after what has been an up and down past few months.
The trio will certainly have a chance to make an instant impact with their new squad, as a victory in the Dreamhack Masters Dallas Closed Qualifier will guarantee them a spot in the $250,000 major tournament.
