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
