Counter Strike: Global Offensive
On the 7th of January 2017, Phelan Gaming had completed the acquisition of Salty.ie. The team consisted of Towls, Bobby, Hundo, Tao and Mickie. This was Phelan's first time expanding into a new eSports with players that were not already associated with Phelan Gaming.
The team was in the middle of training for Gamercon 2017, when Hundo disclosed that he had to leave the team due to his other commitments. This meant that Phelan was in need of a 5th for the event. Towls would bring in Figgy, who returned from English CS to play with the team at Gamercon. The team would play DEG ( who went on to finish 2nd ) only losing by 2 rounds which meant that they feel down to the loser bracket where, even after an impressive run, they would eventually fall to Online Instinctz. After the loss, Figgy confirmed that he would be returning to English CS with his goal been to play at Insomnia i50. Figgy wore his Phelan jersey with pride at Insomnia i50, and we as an organisation thank him for that.
After Gamercon, changes were made to the roster. With Figgy gone, Mickie also disclosed that he would have to leave the roster for real life stuff. Towls would go on to trial and bring in two new players to the scene, Ceerawn and DMN. The team would practice and go on to compete at One Tap Lan, where they end up placing 8th-10th.
After another unsuccessful lan for the Phelan team, changes were made. Firstly, captain of the team Towls stepped down from the main roster to take on a managerial role within the org. This would lead to Phelan beginning advanced talks with legend of the scene, Alan 'Napje' O'Neill about a possible return to the scene. Napje would return and a roster was formed with him and Skidz leading the way. They would also bring back Tummon to the scene, an elite AWPer in the game. Lastly, Phelan would pick up two of the younger players called Complex and Toxik. The roster would go on to compete at RAID Lan and put in a solid performance.
After RAID Lan, Phelan would announce that the roster would be staying with the team for the upcoming ESEA season and upcoming One Tap Lan.
