“In our quest to be number one in CS:GO, we are on the lookout for opportunities to improve our lineup. The moment we realized AMANEK could improve our team and help return it to winning form, we decided to move forward with haste. We’re deeply confident in our current upwards trend and are convinced that AMANEK will return French CS:GO to its former glory”
