The former Epsilon Esports roster is currently without an organization. However, the European CSGO roster is still active as it searches for a new home. It recently announced it would be replacing Viktor “v1c7oR” Dyankov with Thomas “Thomas” Utting on a trial basis. Dyankov was also a part of the roster previously as a stand-in player.
From today we will play with @ThomasCS__ instead of @v1c7oRCSGO for the long term. Thanks to @v1c7oRCSGO for the help in short notice , he was insane and i wish him to find a good team that he deserves. On the other side im super excited to work and play with @ThomasCS__ 🥳

Thomas is a British player who started competing in 2016 on CeX. He later also played under Reason Gaming, Team Endpoint, and most recently NoChance. The NoChance roster, which had players like former FaZe Clan member Mikail “Maikelele” Bill, were signed by SMASH Esports shortly after releasing Thomas.
Most of the events he has recently competed at have not ended well, with bottom half bracket placements on average. Thomas and his team did manage to place 2nd at 2018’s Winter ESL Premiership and 1st at epic LAN 26. However, Thomas will not transition to a permanent position on the former Epsilon Esports roster until he can prove himself.
The former Epsilon roster consists of Kia “Surreal” Man, Joey “CRUC1AL” Steusel, in-game leader Teodor “SPELLAN” Nikolov, Nikola “NK4Y” Radushev, and now Thomas on a trial basis. André “BARBARR” Möller is the coach for the team. Since leaving Epsilon, the team released Rasmus “kreaz” Johansson. It was also later revealed that Helvijs “broky” Saukants had left for a trial role on FaZe Clan.
Some of the team’s recent achievements include 2nd at 2019’s MSI Gaming Arena, losing to Gambit Esports Academy team Gambit Youngsters. The roster is currently at 8th in the Regular Standings of Season 4’s LOOT BET Counter-Strike league. The team is also in 9th with 1 win and 1 loss in Season 32 of Europe’s ESEA Premier Division. The former Epsilon roster will participate in Season 2 of We Play’s Forge of Masters Online Stage.
