GamerLegion have completed their Counter-Strike roster with the signings of Sanzhar “neaLaN” Iskhakov and Sebastian “volt” Malos, who will replace Mihai “iM” Ivan and Kamil “siuhy” Szkaradek after the duo left doing the player break.

NeaLaN arrives after an unsuccessful 12 months with North American organisation Evil Geniuses, where he was the in-game leader; however, with EG being his first tier-one team, he seemingly struggled to perform consistently.

Before joining Evil Geniuses, neaLaN was considered as one of the up-and-coming IGL players in the Counter-Strike scene after leading K23 to a few tier-two event wins, including Pinnacle Winter Series and Funspark ULTI Europe Playoffs.

Volt arrives after spending a fruitful five months with Into The Breach, helping them reach the quarter-finals of the Paris Major 2023.

Over the last three months for ITB, volt has averaged a 1.10 rating, with many solid performances against tier-one teams, which should hold him in good stead as he steps into a relatively young GamerLegion roster.

Due to their ESL World Ranking jumping from no.31 to no.6 after their runner-up performance at the Paris Major, GamerLegion will earn automatic invites to most S-Tier tournaments for the rest of this year.

With only a few weeks until the group stage of IEM Cologne 2023, GamerLegion will have a short amount of time to practise together before beginning their campaign in Germany.
