Bravado lineup changes
NEWS | Andreas Hadjipaschali | Bravado | November 24, 2015
Throughout the past couple of years, we’ve remained quite consistent when it comes to our divisions lineup, additions and replacements. We’ve always tried to keep the standard as high as possible when implementing players into our South Africa e-sports titles.
As the end of the year approaches, individuals are seeking alternative opportunities in life, that may not allow them to meet the time requirements that they would need in order to stay on-top of their game. Regardless of this, we’re always seeking to ensure our teams grow stronger and stronger and obviously seek to maintain their presence in our local e-sports market.
Today we announce the departure of Wasim ‘SeeM‘ Lorgat (Dota2) and Thulani ‘Lighter‘ Sishi (CS:GO).
Two individuals that have helped create Bravado what it is today, physically and mentally.
We wish these two champions the best of the best luck in their feature endeavors (E-Sports or not) and hope that they may find exactly what they’re looking for throughout the next year. It’s hard to close a specific chapter, but as we close one down, another one opens up. Below are the individuals who will be replacing Wasim and Thulani in order to satisfy the needs and requirements of our current Counter-Strike and Dota squads:
Bravado DOTA2 – Flarez Returns.
In addition to the departure of SeeM, we welcome back long-time Bravado veteran, Leon ‘Flarez’ Wong who will be once again joining the ranks of our Dota 2 squad as a carry position.
Flarez was known for making marks in the local and international Dota2 community, shortly before he decided to pursue his e-sports career in CS:GO. After playing and attending the Electronic Sports World Cup (ESWC) in Montreal, Canada for Bravado Gaming, he soon moved to Carbon e-Sports after Ashton ‘Golz’ Muller and Aran ‘Sonic’ Groesbeek joined the ranks of our CS:GO core lineup.
Bravado CS:GO – Welcome Elusive.
Thulani ‘Lighter’ Sishi has contributed a ton of theory to the play-style that Bravado Gaming has performed throughout the 2015 season, in-game and out-of-the-game.
Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances and a unanimous decision , the squad has made the transition of bringing in none-other than Ruan “Elusive” Van Wyk as a support/secondary in-game-leader in replacement to Lighter with immediate effect.
The change came about as Bravado Gaming prepares to ensure that the best possible line-up is present at our next International event (which will be confirmed in the near future).
By ensuring that we can field 5 individuals who are the best in what they do in their respective roles will allow us to once again, try and ensure that a South African team may do well internationally, opening up opportunities for Bravado Gaming and the rest of the South African CS:GO community.
For the first time in history, we welcome Elusive to the ranks of Bravado Gaming and we hope we can make his stay as comfortable as possible throughout his adventure.
Bravado Gaming will continue the 2015/2016 season with 3 divisions in the form of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Defense of the Ancients 2 and Heroes of the Storm.
This includes 15 individuals who will be representing our brand and organization throughout the duration of the next year. We are in considerations of implementing a fourth division, however, if this happens, this will only be announced at a much later stage – throughout the duration of 2016.
Below you can find the 3 core divisions of Bravado Gaming which will shortly be updated on our teams page.
