Reported by us last month, Mako (formerly known as Justice Esports) competed in the Legion of Valkyrie qualifier against a range of teams from around Australasia and found themselves coming out on top - securing a spot at the finals held in Thailand this weekend.
Brayden “Bray” Grzechnik, Director of Player Performance at Mako, stated to us “we decided to acquire these girls because we believe the five players that make up the squad are some of the finest female talents in the Oceanic Counter-Strike scene, and even internationally.”
“Our previous interactions with individuals within the team also provides assurance that we know what we’re getting - which is a team in the upper echelon of female Counter-Strike,” continued Brayden.
“At Mako, we’re extremely excited to work with these extremely talented, hard-working and dedicated girls. We know that together, we can achieve big things,” concluded Brayden.
Mako’s new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster has been making waves over the past few months and have strong show results against the region's top female team, Carnage Esports, which is promising signs for the future of female Counter-Strike here in Australasia.
