Roster Changes

July 26th: Zealous Roster Joins Team CryptiK, Nazgul Leaves

The fifth-seeded ANZ roster of Zealous has been acquired by the organisation of Team Cryptik which is best known for their previous involvement with the SEA scene while Nazgul leaves the team.

Zealous entered the ANZ Pro League after finishing last season's Challenger League in second place and being automatically promoted to the Pro League. From here they have surprised many people defeating teams such as FURY and Power Plays to put themselves in a position of having more than two times the points of the six placed team with just three best-of-twos remaining in the league. This performance has now attracted an organisation to the scene as they have been picked up by Team CryptiK who reenters R6 after 14 months away.

Team CryptiK previously was represented by the roster now known as Aerowolf and made it to both the Season 6 and 7 APAC LAN and finished just a single map away from an international final on two occasions. Now they have rejoined R6 with this pickup that they hope will give them similar successes. 

July 23rd: CATsang Joins Cloud9

Sewoong "CATsang" Heo who previously played for teams such as Ageless and New life has joined Cloud9 as a sixth player. 

CATsang first gained international attention during Season 8 when his roster finished the season ahead of the favourites of mantis FPS (now known as Cloud9) as the top South Korean seed before falling to NORA Rengo at the subsequent APAC LAN. A similar story happened in Season 9 also where they once again qualified for the APAC LAN and once again fell to NORA in the quarter-finals.

Following this CATsang was dropped by the roster and joined the Challenger League team of TRIPPY for the end of Season 9 which he then won to be promoted back to the top league for this season. Now, however, he will exit TRIPPY to join one of the biggest organisations in R6 -- Cloud9 -- as they look to make some changes after failing to qualify for the Six Major next month.
