lollipop21k joins FlipSid3

The CIS team has completed their five-man roster with Igor "lollipop21k" Solodkov, a 21-year-old player who has been transferred from the Belarusian team Goodjob.

This marks an end to FlipSid3' long period of uncertainty as Andrey "⁠B1ad3⁠" Gorodenskiy and co. have been seen playing with various stand-ins during the course of the last ESEA MDL season. Players such as Ilya "⁠fix⁠" Golovko, Artyom "⁠malik⁠" Arhipov and Evgeny "⁠fenvicious⁠" Mitsik stepped in for the side, but none of them ended up earning a permanent place in the squad.

Claiming in the fifth spot on the team is Igor "⁠lollipop21k⁠" Solodkov, a 21-year-old who played HLTV.org matches for only one team in his career: GoodJob. He will now be leaving the Belarus-based team to join FlipSid3, in hopes of growing even more as a player:

"I am so thankful to Goodjob, who I spent more than a year with. I learned a lot in this time, and it's hard to leave Dynamo-Brest. While I enjoyed my time with them, its my time to move on to the next level of competition. I really want to grow my skills, and I think I can do that with FlipSid3. I look forward to what we can do together, and am excited for our upcoming matches." - lollipop21k

lollipop21k hasn't been playing against many high ranked teams, but he has been putting up impressive numbers, boasting a 1.17 rating over the past three months. With him coming in and the roster set, FlipSid3 hope to return to competitive form, their CEO stated in the announcement:

"We are very excited to have some young blood back on the roster.  Igor is very motivated and has a real drive to win.  We are happy to have him and look forward to getting back to competitive form now that we have a set 5" - Hector "FrosT" Rosario, FlipSid3 CEO

FlipSid3 now have the following roster:

Ukraine Andrey "⁠B1ad3⁠" Gorodenskiy
Ukraine Yegor "⁠markeloff⁠" Markelov
Russia Georgi "⁠WorldEdit⁠" Yaskin
Russia Jan "⁠wayLander⁠" Rahkonen
Belarus Igor "⁠lollipop21k⁠" Solodkov

Blad3 is the best talent raiser. He might not win anything but he for sure Raised and taught a lot of young superstars ex simple, electronic
2018-04-20 14:11
LMAO? How did he raise S1mple? S1mple would've made it to where he is right now with or without Blad3's help.

What? He was toxic before and after F3. That's why he was kicked.. Listen to old teamspeaks if you don't believe me.

Not on the same lvl, well his time in hr sucked but in Liquid or Navi?
2018-04-20 19:12
It was bad in HR and it was bad in F3. Don't know how to convince you. However, after F3 kicked him, S1mple was teamless for half a year, raging on fpl, so I guess he realised that he has to sort out his temper, or he won't get any offers. But even then on Liquid he had issues with adreN and Koosta. After that S1mple started to mature, which makes sense for his age.

This^^^ Though B1ad3 sucks as a fragger, he seems to be a descent igl and know how to make star players. I've heard he's quite strict though... nevertheless , this team needs new players. As much as a legend markeloff is, they need young blood answer there's no way mir joins without keshandr. In the long run, they could potentially -keshandr +bondik or even -B1ad3 +liTTle, idk, but more changes are definitely necessary imo. lollipop21k is stepping into the shoes of electronic and they didn't achieve that much while he was on the team. If they're at least remove wayLander and add any promising player, they have chances to compete again.
