exceL Starts Their Global Offensive

1st June 2016

Today, exceL eSports is proud to announce the signing of our new North American CS:GO roster. The team is as follows:

  • Ian 'iannn' Mckay (Captain)
  • Cody 'cubed' Thaw
  • Rob 'rob-wiz' Kennedy
  • Mitch 'DUM0RE' Green
  • Matt 'Pollo' Wilson
  • Samuel 'Lucky' Norcott (Coach)

Formerly known as ‘Mostly Harmless’ the team started off as a local Canadian team, but as they improved and the lineup changed, their focus shifted to try and be nothing short of a top NA team that could compete with the best in the region. With this all new roster, with the introduction of DUM0RE & Pollo, we are excited to see how far this team can go within the North American Counter-Strike scene.

The team has already experienced some recent success, placing 5/6th in the MLG Minor Closed Qualifier, beating teams such as Winout and EchoFox in the process. The team will be competing in Season 22 of the ESEA NA CS:GO Premier League, as well as the upcoming CEVO Professional Placement Tournament and the RGN Pro Series Closed Qualifier.

A quote from team captain Ian,

“We're all incredibly excited to be a part of the exceL brand and organisation. Recently we've seen good results but have been just short of reaching the next level. I believe that with the help and support structure of exceL eSports, we will see tremendous success and start turning some heads."

Our Chief of Operations, Kieran Holmes-Darby had this to say,

“A move into the North American Counter-Strike scene was a no-brainer. The scene is growing exponentially, the only difficult part was picking up the right team. This team have not only impressed us with performances but they are also the right professional personalities to represent exceL in the public eye. We’re expecting big things from this team and we’re incredibly excited about this new venture.”

Welcome to the exceL family guys!
