New PRIDE roster is the ex-PRIDE Academy; MIBR will play at ECS Season 6
New lineup to make up PRIDE
Polish CS:GO team PRIDE have had an interesting couple of days. On 1 October 2018, the organization released the entire active roster, despite them only having played since mid-August. With the departure of the main roster, hardly anyone could have predicted what would happen after. Yesterday, the team announced on Twitter that the PRIDE Academy lineup will be joining the flagship team.

The full-member roster and their coach will now be competing under the PRIDE brand. Currently, the PRIDE lineup looks like this:
- Miki Z Afryki
- VinS – Coach
Interestingly enough, the new team have already had relative success. Just hours after the first announcement, the team posted on Twitter that the new lineup had overcome not one but two rival teams, namely Invizy Esport and M1 Gaming in PLE League.
