Endpoint found themselves in the need of a fifth and final member for their roster after British William "mezii" Merriman left the organization to join "ALEX" in fnatic's new-look international roster. With "mezii" being such a unique player, however, it has been difficult to find a 1-1 replacement, and their new signing is definitely not one that people would have expected. Seeking to fill the shoes of "mezii" is the young Jordanian Mohammad "BOROS" Malhas.
Joining from the Middle Eastern side NASR the youngster "BOROS" has had little experience in the professional CS:GO scene. However, he has made a name for himself by being one of the top performers on the platform called FACEIT, being only 17-years-old. It is clear that signing "BOROS" is a risk and one that is meant for the future of Endpoint.
Whilst the sample size of data from "BOROS" is small, the Head Coach of Endpoint states that the young prospect fits the philosophy of the team perfectly and that his aggressive playstyle is something that they have been looking for:
"Our preference is to look for players whose propensity for risk taking is high as it's easier to reign an aggressive player in than it is to try to get a passive one to do the opposite and BOROS falls into a pool of absurdly aggressive players which is something that excites everyone."
Endpoint is currently ranked 22 in the official HLTV rankings. The new-look Endpoint roster looks as follows:
Thomas "Thomas" Utting
Kia "Surreal" Man
Max "MiGHTYMAX" Heath
Joey "CRUC1AL" Steusel
Mohammad "BOROS" Malhas
