About 90 top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players announced the formation of the Counter-Strike Professional Players Association (CSPPA) on Friday, formalizing unofficial groups that have previously existed over the past few years.
The association has elected seven players from around the globe to serve on its board. Those players include Astralis’ Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth, Team Liquid’s Epitácio “TACO” de Melo and Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski, Cloud9’s Tarik “tarik” Celik, mousesports’ Chris “chrisJ” de Jong, and Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert and Nathan “NBK” Schmitt, formerly of Cloud9 and G2 Esports respectively.
After a rough start to the summer split, Team SoloMid has demoted its head coach in favor of Ham “Lustboy” Jang-sik, who was the former support player and assistant coach for the team.
The support position in League of Legends was not the flashiest of roles, until Madlife came along and changed the game.
