eSports organization Denial could take over CS:GO team
At the Dreamhack Winter Open 2018 this past February, many were left scratching their heads trying to figure out the story behind a relatively unknown team out of South Africa, Project Destiny. Images of the Jamaican bobsled team come to mind, with a team facing seemingly impossible odds making it through the rounds. What Project Destiny showed, however, was that it was a team with a great deal of talent and skill and it ultimately took second place at the tournament. That performance is causing it to receive a lot of attention and it now has a fan in a major eSports company.
Project Destiny’s CS:GO team has turned so many heads that Denial Esports has begun considering a sponsorship deal to allow it to participate in more tournaments. Denial recently saw a management shakeup that has wanted to focus more on CS:GO and Project Destiny seems to be just the answer.
Zach Smith, CEO of Denial, recently said on Twitter, “I said I’d never pick up a CSGO team but damn what an inspiring story. We will be reaching out to them.” His comment was in response to a tweet by Kevin Hitt, Editor-In-Chief of VPEsports, who suggested, “Might be a perfect team for @DenialEsports and @ZachtehCEO to acquire. Instant good team.”
Project Destiny is owned by Bravado. The eSports organization had tweeted that it was running into problems finding the funds to participate in tournaments and one thing led to another. Smith later posted a tweet that all but confirmed the company’s intentions to take Project Destiny under its wing, saying, “I apologize in advance if we pick up a CSGO team and all the old shit I talked on CSGO still stands.”
