[CS 1.6] Moscow Five win Asus Winter 2011


Russia's top team, Moscow Five(ROMJkE, ed1k, xek, Dosia, Fox) , have once more shown themselves to be the best in the region as they won ASUS Winter 2011 and ~$5,200 in prize money at the Kiev-based event. They defeated Iron Will 16-11 on de_train and 16-4 on de_tuscan.

"On de_train Iron Will looked like they had a lot fight back in them against Moscow Five, but in the end they just came a little short of making the match really exciting, despite producing some good rounds. On de_tuscan it was just Moscow Five on a different level, 11-4 as Terrorists and 5-0 on the CT side, meant 2-0 for Moscow Five and second place for Iron Will."- HLTV.org

But who is the Moscow Five?

This team came into existence recently, in February 2011. German organization- Meet Your Makers quarreled with his russian CS division. This resulted in the departure of ROMJkE, ed1k, xek, Dosia, Fox from this organization. As it turned out, the Russians are moving away from the organization knew what they were doing. Along with their manager They guaranteed the support and formed the team, which soon is to become a world power of eSports- Moscow Five.

Earlier, in MYM they won ASUS Autumn 2010 and by the very good performance on the IEM (Intel Extreme Masters) V EC they gained a promotion to the global finals. They're in a group with CompLexity, Frag eXecutors, UMX-Gaming ,mTw and TCM Gaming. And what do you think about Moscow Five??
