Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko announced Monday he will revive pro100, a former Counter-Strike 1.6 team that dates back to 2004.
Zeus, the in-game leader for Gambit, will launch his own esports organization that will take the name of the one that helped launch his career more than a decade ago. He will be the CEO of the organization but said he will also retain his current spot on Gambit.
“Yes, PRO100 is back,” Zeus said in a statement. “I hope this news is as exciting to the fans of this team as it is to me. I’ve played under this tag for a long time and its comeback has been my dream for many years.”
Zeus was part of the pro100 team that featured current Natus Vincere player Ioann “Edward” Sukharev, Mikhail “Kane” Blagin, Dmitry “raz0r” Petrukhino and Evgeny “KEKC” Petrukhino. The team was founded in 2000 in Khrarkiv, Ukraine and stopped being active in 2007.
The organization will presumably field a Counter-Strike roster, but Zeus said in his statement that the disciplines and players for pro100 will be announced at a later time.
Zeus is the in-game leader for Gambit,where he’s been since last summer. He was dropped from Natus Vincere following ELEAGUE Season 1 last July, but he shortly signed with Gambit and turned the team into a surprise success by the end of 2016. Gambit reached the playoffs of the ELEAGUE Major in January and is coming off a second place finish in the CS Summit and a win at DreamHack Austin.
