HellRaisers trial woxic and ISSAA; bondik departs
HellRaisers have announced that Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk, who joined the team in April 2016, will be placed on the transfer list while the team tries out two new players: Issa "ISSAA" Murad and Özgür "woxic" Eker.
Following the Slovakian's departure, HellRaisers have announced that another long-term member will be leaving the active lineup: Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk. The former "" player will be forced to look for new opportunities in the offseason as HellRaisers decided to "refresh the roster."
To fill in the gaps, HellRaisers have added two young players—Özgür "woxic" Eker and Issa "ISSAA" Murad—on a trial basis. The 18-year-old Turk impressed in DarkPassage before the team went their separate ways, and the 20-year-old Jordanian got some spotlight playing in FPL and representing Spotnet. Recently, the two players joined up to play in the mix team Gux & Friends, most notably competing in ESEA Premier S25.
The duo will now make the jump to a higher level of competition with HellRaisers, who are set to compete in ESL Pro League as well as in various qualifiers soon.
"After the transfer period, we need to refresh the roster to feel new opportunities. Due to certain inconsistencies between the players in the working process, it's been decided to put Vlаdуslаv on the transfer market. We believe that it's for the best for both him and the team."
"In the meantime, we're adding "new blood" to the team and will test the players for open positions. After spending a lot of time considering variants and negotiating with players, we've decided to work with such young players as w0xic and ISSAA, who have been showing decent results at both ESEA Premier and FPL."
"We'll also experiment with the in-game roles of our players to make sure everyone feels comfortable. Results of these experiments won't take long, we're about to have a very active gaming period: the qualifiers for TOUR MYKONOS, ESL One New York, matches at EPL will start very soon, and our players burst to go into action! :)"
HellRaisers are currently:
Ivan "Johnta" Shevtsov (coach)
