Team WASD Sports was firstly introduced to a wider audience back in February of 2017. Back then the roster consisted of Gaborik, bitchiR-, Dodz, ViztA and HeLiX. In August of 2017, after a trail of disappointing results, Gaborik & co opted for a change and decided upon removing then motivationless HeLiX from the roster thus making space for one of the most promising Estonian players at the time - sperr.


Shortly after the change everything just clicked and WASD Sports started to gain momentum! Solid performances followed one another resulting in numerous deep runs at various tourneys both online and on LAN. It was apparent that WASD Sports had found their missing piece in form of sperr.


As of today it’s fair to say that victories over Belarusian team Goodjob at GameON 2017 finals and Polish team Pompa at CEVO Main Season 13 finals have cemented WASD Sports as not only one of the best teams of Baltics, but also - a team to look out for in the worldwide scene of Counter-Strike.

  • Raul Madis “nyte” Edovald (C)

  • Kristjan “shokz” Jakobson

  • Karel “kalsa” Uffert

  • Steven “jents” Jents

  • Tim “ZIILA” Zimovtsev


Player achievements:

  • 3rd InterLAN 2017

  • 3rd-4th GameOn 2016

  • 4th Capital NEO Cup 2015

  • 3rd-4th GameOn 2015

  • 1st TTÜ Summer 2015

  • 2nd TTÜ Spring 2015


Team was formed in late 2017 with the sole purpose of attending InterLAN 2017. Teams roster then consisted of two of the original team members kalsa and jents who were accompanied by two ex-DICKHOUSE players nyte and ZIILA. The fifth and final player was jvesper.


The competition at InterLAN 2017 was fierce with multiple strong teams from both Estonia and Latvia trying to snatch the title for themselves, but had only one thing in mind - to finish at least in the top 3! Although they fulfilled their goal and finished in the 3rd place, they still felt like they could have done even better and that something was holding them back.


After the event nyte & co decided to part ways with jvesper who had not only performed poorly at the event, but also was not motivated enough to keep on playing. Seeking for new blood, team brought in shokz - a new and up-and-coming Estonian player. With this addition to the roster, finally feel like everyone is on the same page and ready to take it more seriously than ever!
