European esports organisation Cr4zy have signed the Rainbow Six Siege team from UK org MnM Gaming, which consists of predominantly British players.
The team is currently competing in ESL UK & Ireland Premiership and Challenger League and Cr4zy’s goal is to qualify for the Rainbow Six: Siege Pro League and Six Invitational.
The roster that’s moved to Cr4zy is as follows:
- Max “Dats” McLachlan
- Nathan “Nathan” Sharp
- Jonas “Jonka” Kaczmarzyk
- Peter “pacbull” Bull
- Leo “M4DMAN” Kukielka
- Coach: Ramiz “rcuth” Cuthbert
- Team Manager: Luka “m4niac” Matijević
The team will remain in the UK. They already had a bootcamp at the Kinguin Esports Performance center in Poland, worked with sports psychologists qualified for the Challenger League, and in three matches during the ESL Premiership they remained undefeated.
Daniel Chung, co-founder of MnM, said on the MnM website: “The roster has shown immense talent and promise that built on the legacy left by the legendary first MnM Siege roster. This has no doubt been because of the amount of work they do in the background.
