HS to play for HellRaisers at StarSeries i-League S4

Former OpTic Gaming member Kevin "HS" Tarn will play for HellRaisers at the StarSeries i-League Season 4 event, the CIS organisation has revealed.

The Estonian talent will fill in for Issa "ISSAA" Murad, who will miss the beginning of the Ukrainian event due to visa issues, with HellRaisers stating that they are doing their best to help the Jordanian player "join the team as soon as possible."

Kevin "HS" Tarn is currently a free agent after being released by OpTic, whom he had joined from PENTA in August. In 2017, he averaged a 1.06 rating on LAN, with his best performances coming at the PGL Major Krakow Qualifier (1.32 rating) and at the ESEA Season 24 MDL Global Challenge (1.15).

HS will step in for HellRaisers in Kiev until ISSAA gets his visa

HellRaisers have been drawn against Natus Vincere in the first Swiss round of StarSeries i-League Season 4, which will run from February 17-25 at the Kiev Cybersport Arena. This will be the first event that the team will attend since re-signing Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk, who replaced Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar on the roster.

This means that the European team will play at least their first match in Kiev with:

Ukraine Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow
Hungary Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz
Turkey Özgür "woxic" Eker
Ukraine Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk
Estonia Kevin "HS" Tarn (stand-in)

First of all, please read the article you dumb sh%ts before you comment, and look at your teammate's money before deciding to buy, second of all it's not even a move to call it so, it's a stand-in situation. A move would be to drop the dead weight so called "deadfox" and adding more fire power, per-say HS.
