​One of the hard things about following CS:GO is that players don't always stay with their organizations for an extended period of time. For a variety of reasons, players occasionally go without a team as efforts are put forth to form a new one.

For a little while now, there have been a few notable European players without a team. With the official launch of a new organization, that's changed.

​​The new organization is known as Sprout, and it consists of Denis "denis" Howell, Timo "Spiidi" Richter, Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend, Jesse "zehN" Linjala, Paweł "Innocent" Mocek, and coach Tobias "tow-b" Herberhold.

Denis and Spiidi in particular are great players who have been without a team for an unfortunate amount of time, so it's great to see that they finally have a banner to play under again.

The team is certainly going to be aiming for the top, so it should be fun to see what they can do.


It's true that they haven't officially said what the team intends to sprout into, but if it's a bomb-plant ​as Reddit suggested then that bodes well for the team before they officially play a single map.

On a serious note again, more serious competition is never a bad thing, and this thing should provide some very serious competition. Best of luck to them.
