by Juandi

Krit “Kntz” Chaiprasit, a former Beyond Esports player, has made the return to the world of Counter-Strike by joining Team NKT, at the same time expanding the team into a six-man roster.

Team NKT have been spotted playing with Krit “Kntz” Chaiprasit instead of Anthony “ImpressioN” Lim on their matches in the ESEA Season 38 Open APAC Group Stage against Russia’s Born in the East. When contacted by CSGO2ASIA, Team NKT stated that Kntz still holds the substitute position, but would eventually move to a sixth-man position soon.

Kntz returns to action after retiring from Counter-Strike in May which he then continued his journey to Riot’s VALORANT with the rest of ex-Beyond players under the Renatus banner. Previously in CS:GO, the Thai player was a part of numerous renowned Thai teams back in the days, including Made in Thailand, NSPR Gaming, ALPHA Red, and Beyond Esports.

The rifle player had considerable success throughout his tenure on the domestic circuit. His biggest accomplishments with ALPHA Red were winning the FPSThailand CS:GO Pro League Season 6, while on the international stage, finishing second at Cobx Masters Phase 2 and the OMEN Challenger Series 2019 were enough to establish his squad at the time, ALPHA Red, as one of Thailand’s best representatives on the international stage to date.

He was first seen returning to Counter-Strike during the match versus Born in the East. The 23-year-old averaged a colossal 2.55 rating across the board on Mirage, making him the team’s most probable suitable acquisition to improve the team’s firepower department if necessary.
