kibaken completes Vega Squadron roster
Former forZe member Anton "kibaken" Kolesnikov has joined Vega Squadron's ranks to complete the roster, the organization has announced.
Anton "tonyblack" Kolesnikov has filled the last gap created by the departure of Sergey "keshandr" Nikishin and Nikolay "mir" Bityukov, who were benched from the team in April before the team found their first replacement in Igor "crush" Shevchenko.
Vega Squadron then trialed their coach, Artem "Fierce" Ivanov, as the team's new in-game leader. However, he has returned to his former role, leaving leadership in the hands of Dmitriy "jR" Chervak once again.
tonyblack had been teamless since his removal from forZe at the end of 2017. In the last six months, he was seen standing in for pro100 in the HellCase Cup 7 and took part in a couple of local tournaments with a mixture called TEAMSWAGYOLO.
The 25-year-old has already played a number of online tournaments with his new team, most notably the open qualifiers for DreamHack Open Summer and Valencia, at both of which the squad finished 5th-8th.
Vega Squadron's lineup now looks as follows:
