Arcade sign Worst Players
Arcade eSports have announced that they have secured the services of the team known as Worst Players.
The CIS team was brought together during the summer, right after Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev stepped down from FlipSid3 Tactics' active lineup, and it has since competed in several different online tournaments, with mixed results.
Following the departure of s1mple, who is currently plying his trade in HellRaisers as a stand-in, the team brought in Alexander "spiker" Ivanov. The addition of the Russian player, formerly of PiTER, is expected to help the team to scale greater heights as he has taken it upon himself to lead the roster ingame.

And after roughly three months without any kind of support, Worst Players have now agreed a deal with Arcade eSports, a Russian organisation who also support Dota 2, World of Tanks and War Thunder.
"We are happy to announce that from this day on we will represent Arcade eSports," team member Vladislav "arch" Svistov told HLTV.org.
"We are really excited because everyone on our team wanted the kind of conditions that Arcade will provide us with!
"Our motivation is very high and we will try to represent this organisation in the best way, so we would like to thank them for believing in us!
"Regarding our roster, since s1mple decided to play for HellRaisers as a stand-in, we decided to move forward and search for a new fifth player.
"When we started discussing potential players, we remembered that spiker had left PiTER. He is a very good fit for us."
Arcade, who lost their first match under the new organisation, a 0-2 defeat against DenDD in GO:CL Season 2, have the following roster:
