The former Denial roster has joined up with Nihilum Gaming, a new North American organization coming from World of Warcraft, Soham "valens" Chowdhury informed HLTV.org.
Soham "valens" Chowdhury and company moved under the wings of a new organization, Nihilum Gaming, who have a long history in World of Warcraft, and recently brought in a Hearthstone division.
They're now opening up a CS:GO division as well with ex-Denial, who decided to switch organizations soon after qualifying for both CEVO Professional and ESEA Invite finals, taking place in the next two weeks.

Apart from the usual deal, it looks like Nihilum are at a possibility of a bootcamp place or even a gaming house, as well as the acquisition of a coach in the future.
Upon informing HLTV.org about the move, Chowdhury gave us the following statement:
"We are extremely excited to partner up with Nihilum Gaming, who is well known in the Hearthstone and WoW communities for harboring some of the best talent. Together with Kinguin, the title sponsor, Nihilum reached out to us and wanted to branch out to CSGO and help build a top team from the ground up. There are many things in store for us that are becoming increasingly common in the EU scene, which will undoubtedly grow the NA scene and help bridge the skill gap between the two communities." Chowdhury said in a statement for HLTV.org.
"This year will be explosive for CSGO, and more importantly, for our team to grow both personally and professionally. We have all the tools we need to succeed with Nihilum and are ecstatic about the system they are looking to establish. Shoutout to Denial (and especially Robby) for helping us transition into professionals, and we look forward to their continued success. Even bigger shoutout to Nihilum and Kinguin for allowing us this opportunity to play the game we all love with the type of dedication this game deserves."
Nihilum Gaming signed the following roster:
Soham "valens" Chowdhury
Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez
Timothy "autimatic" Ta
Andrew "professor_chaos" Heintz
Joshua "sancz" Ballenger
As mentioned above, Nihilum Gaming's debut under the new organization will be the CEVO Professional Season 6 LAN Finals on April 13-15, followed up by ESEA Invite Season 18 Global Finals on April 17-19.
