Conquest's CS:GO team have decided to look for a new home for 2016

Conquest's CS:GO team have decided to look for a new home, has learned.

The Conquest CS:GO team, which includes the likes of Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Keith "NAF-FLY" Markovic first turned heads at CEVO Season 8 where the Canadian and American squad managed to defeat dignitas in a group decider thriller to advance to the semifinals.

Although the team have continued to avail themselves well online, including qualifying for the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 finals and winning the RGN Freedom! Cup, the team struggled to make a subsequent mark at offline events, with disappointing runs at the iBUYPOWER Cup and the EEPL S2 finals in Burbank earlier this month.

The team recently also released coach Paul "pauLy" Guerboyan, who had served the squad since their first offline appearance at CEVO S8 and said release may have been a harbinger of internal discord between the team and the organisation.

Khan has stressed that the team is sticking together and seeking a new home for 2016:

"We have parted ways from Conquest. We thank them for everything they have done for us and wish them the best of luck with their future involvement in esports.

"Going into 2016 we are one of the only NA teams with all 5 staying together. A new home hasn't been decided yet, and we are still exploring all of our options. You may contact us directly at," Khan told

The ex-Conquest lineup which is currently seeking a new home is:

  • Keith "NAF-FLY" Markovic
  • Will "RUSH" Wierzba
  • Damian "daps" Steele
  • Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan
  • Peter "stanislaw" Stanislaw
