Former Red Reserve player and one of the best AWPer Mikail “Maikelele” Bill announced his return to professional competitive CS:GO scene, yesterday in a Twitch Stream.
Maikelele said that he will be forming a team with, the three time major winner and former GODSENT captain Markus “pronax” Wallsten, Ninjas in Pyjamas stand-in Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi, and former Fnatic Academy star Aleksandr “JayzaR” Zarkovic. Joakim “jkaem” Myrbostad is a possible fifth that he’d like to field for his first team of the year, but he also mentioned that he has been in touch with Dennis too.
After departing from Red Reserve last August, maikelele took a big step back from his competitive career. His career has become somewhat of a meme, because of his frequent team formations, like Red Reserve, followed by his removal from that same team a short time later.
“I miss the tournaments. I miss the hype. I miss having a team. The feeling of having a team is something else,” Maikelele said on stream. “The absolute best feeling is when you’re at a tournament in a booth … and your whole team is just so fucking concentrated … and ready to play. I’m getting goosebumps [talking about it].” he said it in his vod.
Maikelele currently does not have any organisation backing his new team up, he will be looking forward to start collecting funds from streaming, although it’s impossible for him to fund his entire team. As far as this is concerned, I think he will get picked up by organisations who recently dropped their team such as Epsilon Esports.
Even though, it was not an official announcement of the team, Maikelele stated that the following four “will start playing with each other, 110%” :
- Mikail “Maikelele” Bill
- Markus “pronax” Wallsten
- Jacob “pyth” Mourujärv
- Aleksandr “jayzaR” Zarkovic
