The Detroit Renegades have accepted two familiar faces to their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team. Noah ‘Nifty’ Francis and Nemanja ‘Nexa’ Isakovic have been announced as the newest additions to the esports team’s roster.
Nifty, who grew up in New York, originally got into esports by playing Call of Duty before eventually making the switch to Counter-Strike. He will be leaving behind his former team Selfless Gaming, of which he was a member for the last year.
Nexa, meanwhile, will be making the transition from iNation, a Serbian esports team. Upon meeting their new teammate for the first time, Chris ‘GoMeZ’ Orfanellis reported “an indescribable chemistry.”
“We felt discussing strategies and tactics in person would accelerate the learning curve while building a bond between teammates. We had a hugely successful bootcamp against European teams and cannot wait to get started with our Official matches in ECS Season 3 and the remaining weeks of ESL. Also, the team will be competing at IEM Sydney and the Asian Minor within upcoming months.”
Nexa goes into further detail about his feelings regarding his new team in an exclusive interview with Efrag, available below.
Though Nexa is still in Serbia, Nifty was put to the test last night in the Renegades’ match against Winterfox, where they scored an impressive victory. The full match is available on ESL’s official CS:GO YouTube channel.
