Aleksib's contract with HAVU expires

Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen's contract with HAVU expired at the end of March and the Finn is now a free agent.

HAVU have parted ways with another crucial player roughly three months after losing Jere "⁠sergej⁠" Salo, who took a break from gaming, citing "personal reasons and lack of motivation".

Before today's announcement, Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen had been a part of HAVU since May, 2017 when the Finnish organization signed ENCORE. So far this year, the 21-year-old Finnish player has averaged a 1.19 rating.

Aleksib is now a free agent

According to a report from Flickshot.fr, Aleksib will join Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli in ENCE, who will round out the roster with sergej, Sami "⁠xseveN⁠" Laasanen, and Jani "⁠Aerial⁠" Jussila.

With the departure of Aleksib, HAVU are left with three core players, Samu "⁠uli⁠" Leirilaakso who is on trial, and Taneli "⁠disturbed⁠" Veikkola, who is currently a backup option. The organization have announced that they will reveal their future plans in the upcoming weeks.

Here is the current HAVU lineup:

Finland Mikko "⁠xartE⁠" Välimaa
Finland Jesse "⁠KHRN⁠" Grandell
Finland Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo
Finland Samu "⁠uli⁠" Leirilaakso (trial)

Finland Taneli "⁠disturbed⁠" Veikkola (backup)

Finland Toni "⁠toNppa⁠" Luhtapuro (coach)

Well. If 100% Finnish, then at least pick up: Allu (AWPer/Rifler) zehN (Support) xseveN (Unknown role, but pretty OK) Sergej (Rifler, wont happen since he is on a break) Aleksib (IGL) But yeah, This wont happen probably.

HAVU has done surprisingly well in my opinion, considering they still have KHRN and xarte. So he likely is good IGL, but we'll need to say what he can do now that he has some firepower and pressurse to succeed.
2018-04-02 19:20
Havu came out of nowhere and were making progress month after month with aleksib as an igl. Ofc unfortunately Sergejs departure affected them pretty much...
2018-04-02 21:06
Feel sorry for otto. He is solid player. I would have taken him into ENCE, but as he plays AWP, it is currently not possible I guess.
