Following the departure of Martin “STYKO” Styk to Mouseports, HellRaisers announced Friday it will place Vlаdуslаv “bondik” Nеchуроrchuk on the transfer market and try out two players to potentially fill their remaining Counter-Strike roster spots.
Issa “ISSAA” Murad and Özgür “woxic” Eker will join the team on a trial run. Both ISSAA and woxic are currently on the roster of GUX & Friends.
“We’re adding ‘new blood’ to the team and will test the players for open positions,” HellRaisers coach Ivan “Johnta” Shevtsov said in a statement. “After spending a lot of time considering variants and negotiating with players, we’ve decided to work with such young players as w0xic (Özgür Eker) and ISSAA, (Issa Murad) who have been showing decent results at both ESEA Premier and FPL.”
STYKO joins mousesports after helping HellRaisers to a handful of solid finishes in recent months, though the team fell short of qualifying for the PGL Krakow Major. He will replace Denis “denis” Howell on Mouz.
The HellRaisers roster now consists of woxic, ISSAA, Kirill “ANGE1” Karasiow, Patrik “Zero” Žúdel, Bence “DeadFox” Böröcz.
