PENTA Sports have announced that their CS:GO team is now complete following the arrivals of Tahsin "tahsiN" Sarikaya and Timo "Spiidi" Richter. The duo had widely been expected to join PENTA after playing for the team as stand-ins following the release of Dimitrios "stavros" Smoilis and Christian "crisby" Schmitt.

The move signaled the organisation's intentions of turning the team's fortunes around following a series of mixed results, which culminated with a failed bid to qualify for ESL One Cologne.

Tahsin "tahsiN" Sarikaya joins PENTA after guiding KILLERFISH to the top of the German scene even through a difficult period in which the team was accused of match-fixing. Timo "Spiidi" Richter, on the other hand, returns to the team he left in May after finding himself on the fringes of the action in mousesports following Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's return to the active lineup.

"First of all, I would like to thank my former mousesports team-mates for some really great times," Richter told PENTA's website.

"Now I return to my old team of PENTA. I think that we can achieve something and I hope I will be able to continue where I left off.

"I would also like to thank my fans, who support me wherever I am!"

PENTA Sports now have the following lineup:

Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend
Hendrik "strux1" Goetzendorff
Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz 
Tahsin "tahsiN" Sarikaya
Timo "Spiidi" Richter
