HellRaisers trial DeadFox
HellRaisers have announced that Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz has joined the team on trial.
The Hungarian player will fill in for Sergey "smike" Sklyarenko, who had been playing for the team as a stand-in since August following the departure of star member Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný to mousesports.
The decision follows HellRaisers' disappointing run at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 finals, where they finished at the bottom of their group following defeats against Ninjas in Pyjamas and dignitas.
DeadFox to play for HellRaisers
Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz's biggest achievement to date is a semi-final appearance at the Europe Minor Championship, in January, with PixelFire, with the players later joining forces with Escape Gaming before eventually calling time on the team.
"We practiced a lot and tried to win every single match we played, but we realised that Sergey needs much more time to handle communication in English," HellRaisers coach Ivan "Johnta" Shevcov said.
"When it comes to important matches, decisions and communication must be exected quickly and clearly - the outcome of every round depends on that. And it is especially difficult to do that in a language that is not your own.
"We decided to say goodbye to him and give a chance to another player who had been playing on an international team for a year."
DeadFox will make his first appearance for HellRaisers on Thursday as the team will face Astralis in the ESL Pro League.
HellRaisers currently have the following team:
