Before the start of the season SECSGO Regional Series West we present our brand new player squad in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. We have fully loaded and are ready to compete for a place in the Elitserien.

A completely new line-up - but with a lot of experience.

Last spring, the club decided to release all players as free agents. The club then began a recruitment phase and last week it finally became clear which new players the manager would be David Engberg will have in the squad. All the players come from Full Kareta and competed in the SECSGO Region Series West during the spring.

Carlstad Kings Esports Club CEO Lars Andersson

With many years of experience as a player and a long time together, we see incredible potential in this team. I really think this season will be the best and funnest yet!
