It has been a thrilling weekend over at Lucendi, as they recently showed us a CS:GO tournament is the perfect solution for any lockdown boredom. We watched Eidos takedown Audacity (2-0) in the Grand Final of the Cash Cup, held on Sunday and hosted by Lucendi.
Following the Cash Cup, the departure of their previous CS:GO roster was announced. Speaking to Lucendi’s Owner 'Oski' on this recent news he said “It was a tough decision to let the original roster go. We had some amazing relationships with the players, like Stayx who was under the banner for over 5 months, as well as K0bra who was part of Kanny's former team, Peak Esports.”
Lucendi continue their pursuit in “standing out from the crowd” and extend the organisation further internationally. The news was released earlier this evening via Twitter. An entirely new Danish Counter-Strike roster has been acquired, the line-up being Bunny (IGL), Altekz, M4tt, Krytex and Ha1qu.
Lucendi Gaming’s new Danish CS:GO line-up.
The team is currently 7th in the ESEA Main (EU), with a record of 7-1 ensuing a 6 match win streak. Their first match under Lucendi will be played Tomorrow (27th) as they look to defeat Sinners Esports who hold the same record and 4th in the league. Interviewing in-Game Leader Bunny he told me he is proud of the team's position so far and stated “We expect ourselves to continue at this pace and end up getting to advanced after this season.” They also compete in the Top Division of the Fragleague amongst teams like Lilmix, Lyngby Vikings and Aalborg Rebels.
Bunny spoke boldly on the team's aspirations for 2020, mentioning “we want to get a spot on the Danish top 15 list and then slowly climb the ranks over the next couple of months.” He went on to include the belief he has in his team “I am quite confident that we are capable of achieving our goals. Every time we have gotten the opportunity to play against a top team, we have shown that we are more than ready to play at that level ourselves. We put a lot of time into this and everyone is doing their best to try and make this happen.”
Lucendi has branched out globally in the past, already being home to its French Brawl Stars team who will play this Sunday, during the final stages of ESLCN Summer 2020. As an org Lucendi will continue to venture forward, performing in front of new audiences and looking to continue their trademark of being different.
