After a while on Counter-Strike sidelines, Fantastic Esports finally enters the upper echelon of the domestic CS:GO scene! We are proud to announce that we finally entered a partnership with a Croatian CSGO team led by Mario "Mariuchii" Grdović that has won the hearts of fans in the previous season of A1 Adria League. We strongly believe that this team has the potential to cause some proper damage in the Adria region.
The former Locastic Esports team assembled in mid-2018 with a sole purpose to compete at A1 Adria League. They started off great with a few decent wins over teams like GamePub and Valiance and that build some hype around the squad. Grdovic's team received an invite to compete at ESL Southeast Europe Championship where they became the first Croatian team to ever secure a spot at LAN Finals in Bucharest. On the other hand, their stint in the online portion of A1 Adria League finished off successfully as they placed in the top2, eventually qualifying for the offline finals in Zagreb.
At both of those offline finals, they failed to advance further semi-finals, but still, that finally marked the existence of a really good CS:GO contender coming from Croatia! Fantastic Esports has been supporting the Locastic squad throughout their Esports adventure, and now, we are finally ready to announce that those same home-favourites will be representing our brand!
The team will be competing at the following edition of A1 Adria League that's starting next week, followed with the qualification process for ESL Southeast Europe Championship.
