Tainted Minds has the potential to be one of the best Counter-Strike teams in the Oceania region. This team of five was under the Athletico organization for some time, and they’re one of the many leading talents from their region, alongside Renegades and Winterfox. For their first event, the team will be competing at the Mountain Dew ESEA Season 23 Global Challenge for a $50,000 prize purse.
