Some rather substantial roster moves have just been announced by Leetpro Esports for their CS:GO roster. We thought the changes worth some analysis of how it may affect the team balance going forward.
Older and newer
The new players are certainly all experienced and skilled campaigners. According to their press release:
The Leetpro.CS boys welcome the addition of Jan “Takbok” Theron and Jaun “Zeo” Nieuwoudt to its core line-up, while well-known South African female player Sharon “ShazZ” Waison joins Leetpro.fe.
The one deag hero
Undoubtedly ShazZ could hold her own in any team, as she has repeatedly proven in the past. After stepping down from White Rabbit Gaming a month ago due to health issues, she finds herself back in competition again. Hopefully her health and vision has improved to the point that she will be able to compete without as much discomfort this time around. She’ll certainly bolster the Leetpro female team and possibly give them an edge against their usual nemesis, Bravado Finesse. This was the case the last time she played for the team in the WESG Qualifiers, where they beat then Energy Finesse to make it to the finals in China.
With the help of ShazZ Leetpro will be a tough team to beat for the other top local female teams. I’m not sure at this time whether she will be allowed to play in the Valkyrie league or not. As soon as we get clarity from Mettlestate, the article will be updated to reflect this. If she is allowed to play Valkyrie, she could very well be the difference maker that brings them the title. They plan to keep the current roster with ShazZ added, so no cuts have been made yet. This will probably mean a rotational system and could also accommodate ShazZ’s medical condition.
