UK esports organisation Endpoint have shaken up their CSGO roster with the addition of a couple of experienced UK players.
They have brought on board William ‘mezii’ Merriman (pictured), who was most recently with Cloud9 before the North American organisation put their CSGO operations on hold.
He said on the Endpoint website: “I am super happy to be joining Endpoint. I feel they have shown great potential for a while now with some strong performances against top teams in the most recent season of Pro League.
“I had several proposals but it was a pretty easy decision to accept this offer from Endpoint as I know this is the perfect place for me to progress even further as a player and achieve great things with a team that has strong foundations already.”
In addition, UK player Thomas ‘Thomas’ Utting has rejoined Endpoint. Thomas left the org to join Team Envy last September, but has since returned.
Israeli player Shahar ‘FlameZ’ Shushan has left Endpoint to join OG, while Swedish player Robin ‘robiin’ Sjögren is now a free agent.
Endpoint thanked the players and wished them well in their future endeavours.
The Endpoint CSGO roster (consisting of four UK players and one Dutch player Cruc1ial) is now:
- Max ‘MiGHTYMAX’ Heath
- Kia ‘Surreal’ Man
- Joey ‘Cruc1al’ Steusel
- Thomas ‘Thomas’ Utting
- William ‘Mezii’ Merriman
Earlier this year, Endpoint took part in the upper-tier ESL Pro League for the first time. They finished fourth in Group D, with two wins and three losses, picking up victories over Fnatic and Evil Geniuses.
Endpoint recently announced their academy CSGO roster. And last month, Endpoint announced they had extended their partnership with CeX in a landmark seven-figure deal that saw the retailer own part of the UK esports organisation.
