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.

kibaken joins forces with Vega Squadron

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:

Ukraine Dmitriy "jR" Chervak
Russia Pavel "hutji" Lashkov
Russia Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov
Ukraine Igor "crush" Shevchenko
Russia Anton "tonyblack" Kolesnikov

Russia Artem "Fierce" Ivanov (coach)

Why you are talking like you have brain like thorin, you don't know the dynamics of CS and how teams play. Kibaken played in major league while you play in MM league. You dare to insult cis pro players, let me make you understand this "KIBAKEN COMPLETES VEGA SQUADRON ROSTER", you get that? huh silver elite master like brain judging the god of CSGO. Your arms are just too short to box with the oldschool players like kibaken.

how am i baiting? he posted a game where kibaken was 12-24 am i supposed to say "omg hes so good"?, and yes im not allowed on hltv because i dont play csgo, yet im allowed on a fortnite forum which i dont play either, nice logic there.

You don't even play this game while you say kibaken is bad at T1 match?really? You should keep your opinions to your self when you would get even worse score in gold nova MM match ..... You don't even know difficulty to go against pros ....

actually i used to play this game but not anymore and i cant point out that someone played bad because "i dont know what its like"?, in that case u cant judge anything at all
2018-05-11 10:52
he is good for T2 and T3 while you T100 calling him bad . And he was really good at cs 1.6 but this is different game. I guess GTR is bad too because he has a match against vega squadron with 2:18 score with your flawed logic ....

so because i'm not a pro player i cant call any pro player bad? and what flawed logic are you referring to? saying someone was shit in a match is flawed logic now? sorry i dont suck pro players dicks even every time they have a shit match saying how good they are

0/8 read one more time,i didn't wrote what he should be a pro player,but he clearly dont understand how its hard and he showing 0 respect towards pro's, cuz he's new here. Lets imagine,me saying something like:"The Count of Monte Cristo is awful and it should never be wrote,cuz i dont like it at all,btw i'm 10 y/o".

saying sarcastically "damn what a god" on a 12-24 game = "The Count of Monte Cristo is awful and it should never be wrote,cuz i dont like it at all,btw i'm 10 y/o" russia logic lmao. and why should i show some special respect for pro players? they are normal people like everyone, if kibaken played that game like shit then thats what im gonna say, and you call ME the 10 year old
