Check6 returns with Blight.CA

BY Andrew Miesner / August 25, 2010

In the most recent months, arguably one of the top Counter-Strike source teams, Blight Canada, had been followed by sponsorship trouble. The team was promised financial backing for live LAN events by Blight’s owner, blackfoger. But prior to the ESEA LAN Playoffs, Blight Canada team was informed that Blight would no longer cover any travel expenses. That brought on numerous articles, posts, and comments from former and current Blight players, and teams from Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, and Counter-Strike Source.

Just days after announcing their departure from Blight, the talented CS:S team found a new home at the infamous Counter-Strike organization known as Check-Six. Yes, Check-Six may have made its name from the CS1.6 scene, the organization has housed some of the top CS:S talent over the last few years; such as the old PowersGaming lineup of p0s, clowN, Warmach1ne, mOE, clark, and former Hyper! stars.

This makes the Check6.CSS team:

Frédérik “virulent” St-Onge
Jean-Philip “COLO” St-Onge
Corey “flashstep” Parks
Oliver “hRL” Guilbault
Roberto “UTP” Navas
Jeremy “ridox” Montulet – Backup

Over the last few weeks, former, and current Check-Six has been competing in the CEVO-Pro-AM event, with a solid victory of FYC eSports and earned a spot in the Grand Finals where they await their opponent to merge. Additionally, the Check-Six Source will now be competing in the upcoming ESEA-Invite Season 7 season where they will be attempting to make a run toward their second consecutive appearance in playoffs.
