Several CS:GO veterans have joined up-and-coming stars to form the newest team in the professional scene. Uruguay, a still orgless line-up, was announced Thursday and features the likes of Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans, Adril “ScreaM” Benrlitom and William “draken” Sundin. Draken’s former captain from Red Reserve, Hampus “hampus” Poser is also present on Uruguay.

Ex6TenZ and ScreaM bring in a decade experience of competing professionally. The Belgian duo are semi finalists from DreamHack 2013 as part of VeryGames and carry the veteran status with them, despite their careers struggling in recent years. Most recently, Ex6TenZ played for G2 Esports, but failed to achieve anything in what was a bleak 2018 for the “samurai”. ScreaM, on the other hand, spend the better half of 2018 standing in for various team, following his departure from EnVy in June.

While younger, Draken and HS also come with experience on major teams. Draken was drafted to AWP for the two biggest Swedish teams, NiP and Fnatic, before leaving them for Red Reserve last October. HS, on the other hand, comes from a seven-month stint at Tempo Storm. Previously, HS spent another half a year at OpTic Gaming, with whom he secured top 4 finish at IBP Masters and top 6 at ECS Season 4 Finals.
Uruguay will take Red Reserve’s spot at the ESEA Season 3 Europe and take off from where the Swedes left off: a current 7th place finish with a 5-3 score.
