Cryn and Fresh Join Chaos Esports Club

The former G2 Esports members of Pascal "Cryn" Alouane and Jack "Fresh" Allen have joined the Swedish majority team of Chaos EC to replace Secretly and Syred.

The German player of Cryn began his career in a number of German national teams throughout 2018 where he won the Six Lounge Series #5 LAN Finals, finished fourth in CCS Season 4 and joint fifth in the Saturday League before joining Mock-it Esports for the 2019 Six Invitational to replace BakaBryan. Since then he stayed with this roster through their demotion from the Pro League in Season 9, their victory at the German National 2019 tournament and a fourth-place finish during Challenger League Season 10 before replacing Goga in the reigning world champions of G2 Esports ahead of the OGA Pit Minor.

In total Cryn spent two months on G2 where they were first rounded in the OGA Pit Minor against MIBR and finished the first half of Season 11 in fourth place before he was replaced by SirBoss at the 2020 Six Invitational. For the second half of Season 11, he left G2 to play in the Challenger League once again with the Benelux champions of Defusekids where a loss against his old team of OrgLess in the final game of the season ended their promotion dreams.

Throughout these results, Cryn has proven himself to be a top-level player with top statistics in almost every tournament he's played in. In his first notable tournament, he finished as the second-best entry fragger during CCS Season 3 just behind JoyStiCK before finishing Season 9 as the second-best player on his team. Most recently during Challenger League during Seasons 10 and 11 he was the fourth and then third-best performing player in the Challenger League with his only bad performances coming while on G2 Esports, likely due to him playing support orientated roles rather than his usual Ash and Jager.

Meanwhile, Fresh began his career alongside Omerta, the current coach of Team Secret, on Horus Esports. From here he was quickly noticed by G2 Esports and joined them in an analytical role alongside Sua and Shas. Since then he helped the team to a joint seventh-place finish at the 2020 Six Invitational and a second-place finish in Europe during Season 11 before leaving the team at the end of the season.

Now, Cryn and Fresh will reunite once more alongside another ex-G2 (then known as PENTA) member of SHA77E on Chaos Esports Club to replace the departed players of Secretly and Syred:

Chaos has been in Europe's Pro League since Season 7 with the core roster of REDGROOVE, Renuilz and Secretly finishing in fifth, sixth, fifth, sixth and seventh with Secretly now exiting following their most recent performance. As well as these results, Chaos has also attended all seven of the R6 Minors they could be invited to with their best performance coming around a year ago at DreamHack Valencia 2019 and the Allied Minor where they finished in fourth place. Now, as they hope to push up from the lower ends of the table they have decided to inject some ex-G2 talent into the team ahead of the kick-off of the new EU League.

While Cryn will simply be replacing Secretly, Fresh will be moving into Hyperino's role as an analyst while Hyperino replaces Syred's old role of Head Coach. These roles will be in action in tomorrow's EU Open Clash charity tournament to help raise money for Doctors Without Borders with the following lineup:

 Rasmus "REDGROOVE" Larsson
 Mattias Johannes "Renuilz" Nordebäck
 Aleks "VITO" Lyapun
 Ville "SHA77E" Palola
 Pascal "Cryn" Alouane
 Galdim "Hyperino" Dani
