Kinguin add Kap3r; Hyper to substitute

Striker
October 19th, 2017 14:01

Kinguin have replaced Bartosz "Hyper" Wolny with Kacper "Kap3r" Słoma on the active roster. Hyper continues to be a part of the organization as a substitute.

The change comes as aftermath of Kinguin's disappointing journey in the Europe Minor closed qualifier last weekend. The Poles won only one match, against Japaleno, while losing to GODSENT, AGO, and NiP.

The team have had their eye on Kacper "Kap3r" Słoma for at least a few weeks, as the 22-year-old stood in for Bartosz "Hyper" Wolny earlier this month in the WCA Europe Main Qualifier.

Hyper departs Kinguin's active roster

While Kap3r is an unknown entity on the international scene, he has been able to hold his own in the four series he has played with his new team so far, averaging a 1.12 rating.

Kinguin's lineup now looks as follows:

Poland Michał "MICHU" Müller
Poland Karol "rallen" Rodowicz
Poland Mikołaj "mouz" Karolewski
Poland Grzegorz "SZPERO" Dziamałek
Poland Kacper "Kap3r" Słoma

Poland Mariusz "Loord" Cybulski (Coach)

Why would furlan join a worse team?
2017-10-19 15:32
After the coaching changes they decided to bring a real IGL and picked Hyper, now things are not working at all too so they removed him.

They picked Hyper for IGL, but the rest of the team thought that they don't like the leading style of Hyper and stayed with Szpero as a IGL. Hyper is one of the best IGL in Poland, but he's got slow style with taking map control, Szpero leads agressive.

Is he going to be their new IGL?
2017-10-19 14:08
I think Szpero is an IGL in KInguin.
2017-10-19 14:13
Of course, Szpero is IGL and Sniper.
2017-10-19 14:17
No Hyper was IGL Maybe rallen again now?
2017-10-19 14:25
But after few weeks Szpero became IGL again and they didnt need Hyper...

Kap3r is a very promising player with very high individual skill - he just needs some guidance and a good team and he'll be good to compete and dominate in t2 :)

2017-10-19 15:21
Furlan was the problem lul
2017-10-19 14:27
yes furlan was definitely problem, he is god against tier 3/4, but we all remember what he did when kinguin was tier 2 close to reach tier 1, he was HUGE problem

It's good for this team cuz Hyper wasn't THE ONE igl they needed but still i don't think it's enought changes. For me it should be -mouz +some good support/clutcher
2017-10-19 14:34
- mouz if he keeps bad form + someone with fucking brain cos this is what they need

Kinguin why wont you reunite ESC team? Rallen Innocent Minise Szpero Mouz and AGO make team with Michu / Furlan / Gruby
2017-10-19 15:35

2017-10-29 00:12
To be fair, they had pretty awful matchups for the minor qualifier They should have lost to every team they did except maybe AGO
