Team Refuse have announced that they have picked up hatersg0nnahate as their CS:GO team.
hatersg0nnahate made headlines in April when they acquitted themselves really well at NLAN, finished runners-up to Epsilon in the event's CS:GO tournament and in Svecup to collect almost €3,000 in cash prizes.
The future of the Swedish team had been up in the air in the last week, however, after they witnessed the departures of Jerry "xelos" Råberg and Andreas "maxAki" Andersson to Lemondogs.
It has now been confirmed that the Swedish team have completed their roster with the additions of former Begrip and dateam member Daniel "rape" Borzsonyi and of Erik "marvel" Janbell, who represented teams like Playzone and Hardwire in 1.6.
Meanwhile, hatersg0nnahate have been recruited by Refuse, a Greece-based organisation who also boast League of Legends, Fifa 13 and Call of Duty divisions.
Refuse will be seen in action at DreamHack Summer next month, where they will be in attendance with the following roster:
Mikail "eksem" Bill
Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson
Danniél "dalito" Morales
Daniel "rape" Borzsonyi
Erik "marvel" Janbel

Former ALTERNATE and mousesports talent Manuel "approx" Zeitz has confirmed that he has decided to call time on his gaming career.
This decision comes in the aftermath of Tuesday's elimination of Swog, a team Zeitz had created just a few days ago with former mouz and n!faculty members, in the first round of the EMS One Cup #2.
In a comment written on 99damage.de, Zeitz cited his lack of motivation to play on a competitive level a the reason to hang up his mouse at the age of 26.
This is the second German top player to retire in the space of days, after Tobias "Troubley" Tabbert also decided to call time on his career last week.
Zeitz, one of the most accomplished CS players in the German scene, made his breakthrough when he joined ALTERNATE in early 2007 after establishing himself as one of the country's hottest prospects while playing for SK Germany.
He signed for mousesports in December 2010, only to return to ALTERNATE just eight months later, in a new team with Roman "Roman R." Reinhardt and Navid "Kapio" Javadi.
When CS:GO was released, ALTERNATE parted company with their 1.6 division, and Zeitz joined xXx, who were later picked up by mousesports.
But the team could never reach the heights that many expected, and after a serious of mixed results and roster changes, the players ended up going their separate ways last week.
It is still unclear what the future looks like for the remaining players in Swog. Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein and Azmican "asmo" Berberoglu are currently playing with /10/ in the A-Series.
The following players are now assessing their options:
Azmican "asmo" Berberoglu
Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein
Andre "nooky" Utesch
Michele "zonixx" Köhler

The former GSL champion has been acquired by the Korean branch of FXOpen e-Sports. It was made clear that his contract with LG-IM has not run out but the deal was still signed in agreement.
Ahn "Seed" Sahng Won, the man that helped LG-IM complete the feat of being the first team to win GSL titles with all three races, has been transferred to FXOpen e-Sports. He will be part of one of the strongest team league contenders with two GSTL titles and one semifinal finish in just one year, featuring well-established players such as Leenock, GuMiho and sC. Even though he's been stumbling since his masterpiece in the 2012 GSL Season 3, he is often referenced for his often awkward and unusual playstyle; something that helped him more than once in team league, and will play right into FXO's cards to regain power over GSTL once again.
Whether the decision by LG-IM to let him go was only made due to Seed's lack of recent success or out of financial necessity was not made clear, but with FXO being proficient at bringing up young players like Leenock and struggling players like sC, Seed might prove to be a valuable addition to FXO's roster, one that has a noted lack of consistent Protoss players.

Not long after our report outed the strong possibility that the ex-Copenhagen Wolves League of Legends team would be joining Ninjas in Pyjamas as their first addition outside of CS:GO the Swedish organization announced that indeed they have acquired the Danish LoL team.
In style, with a celebratory video, the announcement doesn't come as a great surprise considering the amount of attention given to NiP's possible expansion.
The deal was made earlier today and comes after a troublesome period which saw team PanDan, as they came to be known, leave the Copenhagen Wolves home in order to look for a new organization.
The video which confirmed the new League of Legends team was posted on http://www.nip-gaming.se/ just several hours ago:

The announcements was tweeted by TIG writer Ethan Ahn this morning. Miya has been a member of Axiom eSports since November last year.
Originally a member of SlayerS before the team disbanded on November 3rd, Miya has been having mixed results throughout his career. During 2012, he would drift in and out of Code A, never breaking past the Ro48. The top ten placement in 2012 WCS Korea nationals remains as his highest achievement.
After SlayerS' dissolution, Miya was teamless for two weeks before signing with recently-founded Axiom eSports. Since then, his tournament appearances have been even more sporadical and as it appears from one Ethan Ahn's tweet, the Zerg has decided to end his career.
It was furthre revealed that the announcements about Miya's retirement about was supposed to be released after the GSTL match between Axiom-Acer and Azubu. Consequently, this breaking of the news promted a response from team sponsor TotalBiscuit and manager Olimoley both of whom responded to the reddit thread about Miya's retirement, which in return resulted in Ethan Ahn apologizing for impairing aforementioned official plans.
