seized joins FlipSid3 on loan

MIRAA
November 6th, 2017 19:59

Natus Vincere player Denis "seized" Kostin has been loaned out to FlipSid3 Tactics, the two organisations have announced.

The 23-year-old links up with FlipSid3 as part of the deal that sees Denis "electronic" Sharipov move in the opposite direction on a permanent basis.

The loan is valid until the end of the year, when Denis "seized" Kostin's contract with Natus Vincere expires and he becomes a free agent. However, the Russian player has already reached an agreement with FlipSid3 to represent the organisation at the Main Qualifier for ELEAGUE Major Boston and also at the $1 million Valve competition, should the team qualify for it.

seized will play for F3 until the end of January

seized has spent the last four years playing for Natus Vincere, whom he joined from Begrip Gaming in August 2013. During his time with the Ukrainian organisation, he attended all 11 Majors held to date, helping the team to reach the final in Cluj-Napoca and in Columbus. 

"It will be nice to have the opportunity to play the Major qualifiers," seized said in a statement. "I will do my best to help these guys make it to the Major and play some good CS.

FlipSid3 now have:

Ukraine Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy
Russia Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov

team logos and flags are very different, a flag represents a country, a team logo represents an organization. While the organization does have its own space, owned by the org, that space could not be considered a country.

FS3 is one of those teams that always make me wonder........is the org so retarded? i mean, they keep on payin salaries and sending them all over the world to events etc just to keep on being a top 20 team?? what have they achieved so far? isnt any team's main goal to become top 3, look at other newborn teams like north, getting top 10 after some time, but fs3 keeps being outside top 10 and they dont do anything about it, get new fresh players inside? gambit perfect example of how it can be done on such a short period!
