The courting of CeRq, a Bulgarian AWPer for Outlaws, has been odd. He first planned to sign with Rogue to join a team led by Spencer “Hiko” Martin and the core of the Enigma6 roster, but Slingshot reported Aug. 8 that NRG entered the conversation and attempted to acquire CeRq after the player had already started practicing with Rogue. Slingshot reported Monday that Rogue would no longer attempt to sign CeRq.
With the addition of CeRq, NRG will have found a replacement for AWPer Peter “ptr” Gurney, who left the team and later joined compLexity Gaming. CeRq will play for NRG in the upcoming season of the ESL Pro League, which begins Tuesday.
The rest of NRG’s roster includes Damian “daps” Steele, Jacob “FugLy” Medina, Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte and Allan “AnJ” Jensen.
