According to a report from CSGO2Asia, Kevin ‘xccurate’ Susanto will be the last piece of the new NG roster. Sources in the organisation have revealed today that the transfer of the 22 year-old Indonesian star has already been complete, with a buyout speculated around $37,000.
Xccurate rose to prominence in the Indonesian scene, being acquired by Tyloo in 2018. During his time at the Chinese giant, he would reach even further heights, showcasing his talent to the world, claiming the StarLadder Chongqing 2018 title and making it to the Quarter-Finals of IEM Sydney 2018.
However, things soon turned bitter sweet in the squad, as Tyloo would return to an all Chinese roster by the end of 2019, with Hansel ‘BnTeT’ Ferdinand being transferred to Gen.G, as they entered into the Counter-Strike scene, and loaning xccurate to BTRG. Nevertheless, the Indonesian continued to perform well and soon became an integral piece of the line-up, fuelling them to a victory at WDNMD Asia Invitational 2020.
NG Esports would then burst into the Counter-Strike scene, and snatch two of his teammates, Anthony ‘ImpressioN’ Lim and Hyun-Pyo ‘XigN’ Lee, as parts of a bigger plan to build a new ‘Asian Super-Team’ to compete with the likes of Tyloo.
The Thai organisation would later announce the addition of Thotsaphon ‘cbbk’ Suphatthanaphalaphon, a 26 year old rifler from Thailand, and the acquisition of Mongolian talent Erdenetsogt ‘erkaSt’ Gantulga from TIGER.

NG Esports has also confirmed the staff behind the team, adding former Lucid Dream coach, Piyangoon ‘MYM’ Kitisin and former Bren Esports manager Ryan ‘BabyBoy’ Crisostomo.
Xccurate is expected to be officially announced later on, with MYM standing-in his place for the time being. The team will make its first appearance in just a few minutes, at a domestic tournament, the 188 Esports Thailand Championship 2020, fighting for a prize pool of $3,197.
