Right now it feels like I fit in well, and that’s easy for me to play because they are helping me to improve. They’re really good, and they know a lot. I’m enjoying myself,” said KheZu, Team Secret’s newest member.
The MongolZ, from Mongolia, faced top Counter-Stroke: Global Offensive (CS:GO) teams from Australia, the UAE and Singapore throughout the ROG Masters LAN group stages and Grand Finals. They defeated all of them without losing a single match to take home the first ever ROG Masters CS:GO trophy.
