BC.Game announce Counter-Strike roster
Earlier this week, BC.Game announced its first foray into the Counter-Strike esports scene, by unveiling its new roster. The international lineup was finalised with the signing of Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson and Luca “pr1metapz” Voigt who joined the team on Monday, July 1.

The organisation started assembling the roster last month and needed just a week to finalise the lineup.

Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács was the first to sign with BC.Game Esports, on Wednesday, June 26, as a head coach. The 32-year-old started his Counter-Strike career in 2006 and has since competed in Counter-Strike: Source and CS:GO, most notably with FaZe Clan and Natus Vincere, with who they reached two Major finals.

In the next couple of days BC.Game unveiled the additions of Israeli AWPer Guy "anarkez" Trachtman, Aleksandar "CacaNito" Kjulukoski, and Joel "joel" Holmlund, who linked up with the latest additions in Lekr0 and pr1metapz.

A Mix of Experienced Players and Young Talent

BC.Game’s project features a balanced mix of experienced Counter-Strike players and rising talent, including younger players who join the roster with a lot to prove.

The latest signing, pr1metapz, started his esports career in late 2019 and only recently made headlines as part of the 5W Gaming roster, which also featured joel.

As members of 5W Gaming, joel and pr1metapz won Regional Clash Arena Europe by beating notable squads, including Dynamo Eclot, GamerLegion, and 3DMAX in the grand final. The German rifler ended the tournament with a positive 1.11 rating, whereas joel topped the leaderboard with a 1.53 rating across 18 maps played.

Joel’s compatriot, Lekr0 joins BC.Game Esports from Johnny Speeds, who he was a part of since leaving IKLA in February. The Swedish team made some earlier this year, winning eight tournaments across a 10-tournament stretch.

However, the stack has remained without an organisation, leading to Johnny Speeds' eventual disbandment. Nevertheless, the new in-game leader feels like he has found a team he can succeed with and build on his accomplishments with Johnny Speeds this year.

"It is a team with solid players and a coach I have a lot of respect for, so I believe we can go very far," said Lekr0.

"The team is looking long term, and that's what I believe in as well. BC.Game asked me a lot of times before deciding I'm gonna make this move."

The new Counter-Strike roster has yet to unveil their schedule and it remains unseen when the team will debut.
