Sources: Chiefs look to refresh with blend of youth and experience in CS:GO

After announcing the departure of three of the carry-over players from the Genuine/Team-Team days, the Chiefs are eyeing off a couple of familiar faces and one new one to the mix, according to sources.

After recently announcing the departure of Daryl “Mayker” May, Jordan “SkulL” Newland and Chris “Jinxx” Moseley from their CS:GO roster, the Chiefs are moving quickly to fill their places to join the remaining players of Hugh “HUGHMUNGUS” Anderson and Tom “apocdud” Henry.

A recent Instagram story revealed that the Chiefs have already begun practicing with their new squad, and sources have revealed to Snowball Esports that the Chiefs are looking to move on with the new additions of:

Dodd and Jeong add some veteran experience at the top of scene from Avant and Order respectively, and familiarity with the existing team, as HUGHMUNGUS (then known as ‘stat’) played with Jeong on Legacy Esports and competed together at the eXTREMESLAND finals at the first Melbourne Esports Open in 2018.

Portelli adds new young blood to the team, in keeping with the Chiefs’ stated vision in finding and developing young talent. At just 15, he will have the opportunity to find himself as a player and person under one of the regions’ strongest organisations. 

Vexite also comes to the Chiefs most recently from the Vertex roster that he played on with Jeong. That roster was able to make it to the finals of LPL Pro Season 4, so there is a record of performance and winning that the Chiefs can build on with this young talent. 


The new-look Chiefs roster are currently scheduled to play Rooster and Skyfire in Season 34 of the Mountain Dew League, and this may be the first opportunity we will have to see them in action.
