FlipSid3 sign dAT Team

February 1st, 2015 18:00

FlipSid3 Tactics have announced that they have completed the signing of dAT Team.

FlipSid3 had been linked with a move for the Ukrainian team for some weeks, but the rumours intensified after the North American organisation announced the departure of their CS:GO team, who will allegedly join Property.

Despite having one of the most promising lineups in CIS, especially after the additions of Yegor "markeloff" Markelov and Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, dAT Team had long been on the lookout for an organisaton, which, however, did not stop them from attending a number of offline events, including ESL One Cologne and MCS Open Season 1.


s1mple & co join FlipSid3 Tactics 

dAT Team's heroics did not go unnoticed by FipSid3, who believe that Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy has what it take to guide the team to success.

When we first began speaking with B1ad3 about the roster, we quickly realized that he was the type of guy that fits right in with the culture we have created here at F3.  We really believe this roster has all the pieces in place for them to continue their growth to the next level.  With a good mixture of young talent and veteran experience, all headed up by one of the strongest leaders in the scene, we cannot wait to see what they will be able to accomplish this year.

"This is the first time in CSGO that we have moved into a new region," says F3 chief Hector "Frost” Rosario.

"Our CSGO squads have always been predominantly Swedish, and we planned to remain that way, until we met Andrii and his squad.

"This unbelieveable team contained both the drive to take their game to the next level, as well as the skill to do so. It was a no brainer that we wanted this group of players to represent our colors at the top levels of CS:GO in 2015.

"We have never been more proud to have a group of guys representing F3."

HLTV.org knows that the deal also includes B1ad3 serving as an advisor to FlipSid3's South African academy team, whose game the Ukrainian veteran will strive to improve.

FlipSid3 Tactics' first tournament will be the second European pre-qualifier for ESL One Katowice, in which they will not be able to field s1mple due to the Ukrainian prodigy's ESL ban.

The team's lineup is the following:

Ukraine Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy
Ukraine Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk
Russia Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov
Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev

Its all nice, hypy and c00l and I'm really happy for them, but I'm really curious what's going to happen in Na`Vi in a couple of months and the reason is that s1mple's ESL ban expires somewhere in May or something and he will once again be able to play at big events and if starix really leaves then if not markeloff, but maybe s1mple would be a good candidate to join navi at that time and Flipsid3 will end up looking for a new 5th again, but anyway, we'll wait and see, I guess... ;)
