November's main transfers
The window of CS:GO transfers has no frames. Constant reshuffles within teams have already become something usual for the community. The main goal of these changes is to improve the quality of a team's performance and make it progress. Follow all the important events together with us!
Like one month ago, last 30 days brought quite a few loud transfers that affected top teams. You’ll find out about the reshuffles in fnatic, G2, Luminosity, dignitas, and about the comebacks of legendary players. Let’s jump right in!
Dennis "dennis" Еdman
Current fnatic roster:
Phillip "aizy" Aistrup
After Edman’s departure to fnatic one of the best teams of DreamHack Cluj-Napoca, G2 roster, had to find a new player. The place, however, remained vacant not for long and the squad was completed by a key Dignitas player Philip «aizy» Aistrup. The Danish team has been showing quite unstable results lately, and their failure at CEVO Professional League LAN-finals only worsened an unfolding situation. Despite relatively weak performance of the team, aizy managed to show amazing shooting skills in almost all their games.
Current G2 roster:
Mikail "Maikelele" Bill
Philip «aizy» Aistrup
Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad
Ricardo "fox" Pacheco
Lincoln «fnx» Lau and Epitacio "TACO" Pessoa

The veterans return. Maybe, mJe's going to be next? (hltv.org)
The announcement concerning the comeback of legendary Counter-Strike 1.6 players is worth separate metnioning. Three members of one of the strongest teams in the history of CS competitions have returned. Back in 2008, mTw definitely were on top, defeating each and every rival and winning all possible trophies.
Sniper duels between Yegor «markeloff» Мarkelov and Christoffer «Sunde» Sunde were everybody's favorite to watch. Back in the days, Аlexander «ave» Holdt was ranked as the best IGL in the world and considered to be one of the most tolerant personalities in eSports. Оliver «minet» Minet, in hus turn, joined mTw in 2009 and helped the team to reach the top-3. He was the first to announce his returning and over the last year was performing for a few teams.
«Golden» mTw roster: wHimp, zonic, Sunde, mJe, ave
It is important to realise that no matter what times have changed and the game looks very different now. The names of the remaining two players have not been revealed yet, but what we do know is that mTw are surely ready to compete against top rosters of the world.
Current mTw roster:
Christoffer "Sunde" Sunde
Oliver «minet» Minet
Alexander «ave» Holdt
fnatic reminded us that even the most successful teams can't avoid reshuffles. Their new lineup has been showing impressively solid results so far: the ideas and strategies they use feel fresh and new, and indeed are capable of surprising.

Brazilian fans of CS:GO received a new reason to feel proud and happy. The arrival of two players positively influenced Luminosity's style of playing, since FalleN now has a new experienced partner, fnx, that can easily help him.

dignitas finally reached stability. After the arrival of RUBINO and k0nfig, the level of their performance improved noticeably. With the current situation around TSM organization, we have to be ready for anything. Maybe, soon we'll see something even more powerful than former TSM and dignitas?

The comebacks of legendary Counter-Strike 1.6 players are exciting and questionable at the same time. Tremendous experience will surely help the guys to overcome the barriers of today's professional scene, however the style of playing changed a lot over the last years, so the team may face some unpredictable ingame problems.
