Following Jordan “Hatz” Bajic’s departure earlier this week, it has been revealed that ORDER have since approached Australian journeyman Ricardo “Rickeh” Mulholland heading into the start of the 2020 season as a trial member.
While the team have yet to pay their ESEA match fees ahead of Season 33 of the Mountain Dew League beginning in mid-January, Rickeh appeared on the ORDER ESEA profile page late Monday night prompting early reports of the roster change.
Rickeh’s storied history in CS:GO spans two regions after his move from Team Immunity to Renegades in 2015 as a primary AWPer. Following a year and a half stint under Yaman “yam” Ergenekon's leadership at RNG, Rickeh would become the first Australian solo expatriate in CS:GO after a move to Counter-Logic Gaming in 2016.
He would move into a secondary AWP/rifling position at CLG throughout the backend of 2017 before the organisation ceased CS:GO operations. Rickeh would see out his contract before moving through American organisations Rogue and Complexity Gaming over the following two years.
After his departure from Complexity in mid-September, Rickeh announced a plan to return to Australia with his now-fiancée and seek offers locally. A supposed move to ORDER would see him link with previous Immunity teammate Karlo “USTILO” Pivac, with both bringing vital overseas experience to the Australian-based organisation.
ORDER begin their MDL season on January 13 before their all-important IEM Katowice Oceanic Closed Qualifier early next week.
