Official: FlipSid3 sign wayLander
FlipSid3 Tactics have confirmed on their website that they have completed the signing of Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen from Gambit Gaming for an undisclosed fee.
The Finnish talent has been playing for FlipSid3 as a substitute since the departure of Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk to HellRaisers, exactly two months ago.
During this period, Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen attended two events with FlipSid3, the SL i-League Invitational #1, where the team finished 7th-8th, and the offline qualifier for ESL One Cologne, where they claimed a spot at the next $1 Million Valve-sponsored Major.
