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.

In Katowice wayLander turned many heads as he posted a team-leading rating to 1.18 and led the charge for FlipSid3 during their final match against HellRaisers with a whopping 1.88 rating.


wayLander officially joins FlipSid3 

With FlipSid3 due to play in ELEAGUE this week, the North American organisation have released a statement saying that an agreement has been reached with Gambit for the permanent signing of wayLander, who has been replaced on the Russian team's roster by Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan.

"We are glad to have reached an agreement with Gambit over WayLander, and are excited to move forward with a full roster," FlipSid3 Tactics COO Dana "wuvs" Kawar said in a statement.

"A special thank you as well to Gambit for allowing us to practice and compete full time with WayLander throughout the negotiation process."

FlipSid3 Tactics, who will face Na`Vi, mousesports and Echo Fox in ELEAGUE, now have this official lineup:

Russia Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov
Ukraine Oleksandr "Shara" Hordieyev
Ukraine Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy
Finland Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen

Born in Russia plays in Russia, speaks Russian.
2016-06-20 18:44
> has Finnish citizenship > doesn't speak Finnish Pick one. I doubt his parent are stupid enough to not teach him at least some Finnish, no matter where he lives.
2016-06-20 19:07
His father is finnish and mother russian. He has lived all his life in Russia and never spoken finnish.
2016-06-20 19:29
His father doesn't live with the family?
2016-06-20 19:41
I don't know. He might have been with the family but worked in Russia and talked only russian to his children.
2016-06-20 19:47
It would be extremely dumb. Finland obviously > Russia in every aspect.
2016-06-20 19:49
He got finnish citizenship still. You don't have to speak finnish to get the citizenship if you have a finnish parent. He can move to Finland whenever he wants.
2016-06-20 19:53
Yeah but to learn a language takes from at least 6 months to several years...
2016-06-20 20:00
If he doesn't speak any Finnish then how can he serve the Finnish army anw ?
2016-06-20 21:17
It's mandatory to serve for males if they live abroad and want to retain their citizenship. The army then makes special program for people who can't speak finnish. He probably got all his instructions in english and russian, had to serve minimal time and was assigned to do some simple things.
2016-06-20 21:21
Oh, I see. Interesting.
2016-06-20 21:24
Lol i served as everybody did. Olin telemies Just learned all commands that i needed.

simple is awper/entry as I know while marik is supporter WE is unstabble and sometimes makes dumb decisions but he is still better than oskar And s1mple left HR because of oskar so they won't play together, also oskar doesn't speak russian
2016-06-21 07:55
oskar plays with 4 cis players atm so why would that be a problem in flipside if it isn't in hr?
