HellRaisers go official

March 9th, 2014 21:35

A new eSports organisation has been created under the name HellRaisers and with the former Astana Dragons team playing under their banner.

Earlier in the week, HLTV.org wrote that the former Astana Dragons team would be playing under the name HellRaisers at EMS One Katowice next week, with their sticker having already been included in Valve's latest CS:GO update.

The Ukraine-based team, who recently came in second place in the GSL Cup, had been without an organisation for more than two months after parting company with Astana Dragons in late December by mutual consent.

ex-AD now represent HR 

It has now been revealed that this is not just a one-off thing for the event in Poland after all, as HellRaisers have established themselves as a real organisation thanks to the support of ASUS Russia.

"Hello! We are pleased to announce a new home. That is especially important for us because of 

EMS One Katowice. I note that we are very grateful to the company ASUS, work with which we
wanted for a long time. I think that in combination these factors we are able to start playing at
full potential and return to its former glory. Thanks to everyone who supported us and continues 
to support. Cheers"

"Hello! We are pleased to announce a new home. That is especially important for us because of EMS One Katowice," said Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow.

"We are very grateful to  ASUS, with which we wanted to work for a long time. I think that now we can start living up to our full potential and once again achieve the glory of our past days.

"I would like to thank everyone who has supported us."

HellRaisers' lineup stands as follows:

Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev
Ukraine Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov 
Ukraine Emil "kucher" Akhundov

Theyve been together for awhile with or without org. granted they made a few changes, but its obvious these players will not give up without a fight. And thyve had a couple good results at lans, we just expect way too much (top2 every event)

ANGE1 said in interview that they were unmotivated without organisation, and they still wanna play with each other. Also he said that they r haven't trained a lot for EMS and he don't even know how they'll play on EMS And if they'll fail they won't disband, because it have no sense

Yes it fits, four of them were once the best team in CS as Virtus.Pro, it was Dosia,AdreN,Kucher,Ange1, and Fox. The only thing they changed was adding Markeloff which was a good choice. They have amazing chemistry man, they just need to use it and get some strats together, they got this man, they know what they're doing wrong and they're going to fix it, all of you dissing on them, these guys are legends and have done more in CS than any of you put together, so keep hating.

Dosia looks like a typical Russian from MM, in my opinion
2014-03-09 21:56
On what you based your conclusion, sir?
2014-03-09 23:17
on my experience. I have 800+ hours, and no offence man, russian are for the most part either cheaters or unbearable trolls that have no team play, shout in russian all the time, and are very intolerent when their teamates lose a round.
2014-03-09 23:32
I said how you realized that dosia is of the mm's russian retards?
2014-03-09 23:34
Does anyone have the facebook HellRaiser?

"once again achieve the glory of our past days" ??? What glory? 3rd ESWC and thats it? too low for glory sorry..... Not even top5 at this moment.
2014-03-09 23:00
mhm, second place on SLTV S7, ESWC top3, Raidcall EMS top2, Techlabs grand final 1st place. It's seems enough before last month of previous year, when they lost org.
2014-03-09 23:30
Second SLTV 7 and ESWC top 3 is okay but Techlabs 1st place is shit, there was no top5 team except them . They had glory when they were Virtus.pro, not as Astana Dragons

I like that the organisation decided to use the flag of CIS, instead of Ukraine.

"A new eSports organisation has been created under the name HellRaisers" Maybe I'm misinterpreting but it's saying this is a new org made from scratch now called HellRaisers. I'm pretty sure that name is not new, I've seen old 1.6 matches under that name from 2009. markeloff and ANGEL did also play under that name at that time.
2014-03-10 00:39
The name is old but i dont think they had some sponsorship back in those years
