"
It's with great honour that we embrace Rasta's colors today. We are fully convinced that our ambitions are going to be matched with their history and reputation . At the same time, it's a little bit sad that we had to leave one of ours behind, unfortunately bEN doesn't have the time nor opportunity to play with us anymore.

We've decided to go with a well known, great friend of ours, rmn. We are sure that he will adapt to our game style very quickly.

Finally i would like to thank everyone that's been supporting us through the times, would like to that specially MF and almeidas for all that they've done for us, CJM, and last but not least, gotit and Blanks for giving us this opportunity; Said Ricardo "AIm" Almeida on Rasta-Gaming site"


"
First of all I would like to thank Blanks for his unstoppable support.
After one year full of ups and downs, with lineup changes after every lan, we decided to move in another direction with this new lineup. We decided to put "our chips" on a team that we have been following for a while and that have all the signs of being a great team. With this change we believe that a new chapter has begun and we hope to succeed in everything we set out to do!

Whilst moving forward, I cannot forget what we have left behind, I would like to thank paradyze for his effort, dedication and kindness, wishing him the best of luck. Declared team-manager Gotit
