Arcade add DavCost & kibaken

Arcade announced two roster changes as they added Anton "kibaken" Kolesnikov and Vadim "DavCost" Vasilyev to their ranks.

The CIS team removed Pavel "⁠hutji⁠" Lashkov and Dmitriy "⁠jR⁠" Chervak from the lineup, citing the disappointing results at the StarLadder CIS Minor as the reason. Arcade made a group stage exit at the said tournament and were eliminated after playing two maps.

jR, who is one of the players that was cut, had the best rating among his teammates at the Minor but that wasn't enough to prevent his removal. hutji, on the other hand, had the worst rating overall and at the Minor.


DavCost opens a new page in his career 

The new players, Vadim "⁠DavCost⁠" Vasilyev and Anton "⁠tonyblack⁠" Kolesnikov, are familiar with each other as they were both in the last Worst Players lineup and DavCost started his career competing in the local LANs in Moscow with tonyblack.

With this roster change, the lineup of Arcade looks as follows:

Russia Anton "⁠tonyblack⁠" Kolesnikov
Ukraine Pavel "⁠COLDYY1⁠" Veklenko
Russia Vadim "⁠DavCost⁠" Vasilyev
Russia Nikolay "⁠mir⁠" Bityukov
Russia Dmitry "⁠S0tF1k⁠" Forostyanko

Good for them but jR is good.
2016-05-11 19:19
Replacing jR is a huge mistake. This guy was an absolute monster - he is just inconsistent. hltv.org/?pageid=188&matchid=22675
2016-05-11 19:24
kicking jR is a big mistake

smart play is not popular in the region. so unless they dig out some 1.6 coach they wont achieve anything substantial regardless of roster changes

maybe they did need a new awper, now we need to see jr + dima in the same team
2016-05-12 07:51
I don't think that they can win even F3 or some teams like that

F3 is always on major though, they aren't too bad.
