Only one week after PoV announced that they were disbanding, Derek “dboorN” Boorn has signed a new contract from the likes of the Evil Geniuses. Derek will be taking the place of Ediz “goodfornothing” Basol, who has decided to retire from professional CS.
DboorN will be making his first start with EG at the WCG Grand Finals in Los Angeles, California where he will be representing the USA for Counter-Strike 1.6.
Alex Garfield had this to say about the pickup:
Derek is a player we’ve been eyeing for quite some time and have just recently had the opportunity of pursuing,” stated Alex Garfield, Executive Director of Evil Geniuses. “We were very sad to see Ediz go, as he was an incredible player, teammate, and person. But with his decision to retire, we’re excited to welcome Derek’s talent, personality, and passion, and give him the opportunity to be embraced by his new teammates. We’re sure the team’s chemistry and ability will be empowered by his presence.
This makes the EG roster:
Danny “fRod” Montaner
Tyler “Storm” Wood
Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert
Tomi “lurppis” Kovanen
Derek “dboorN” Boorn
