FlipSid3 have announced an overhaul of their Counter-Strike team as Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin and Igor "lollipop21k" Solodkov have been placed on the transfer list, while Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy has taken up a coaching position.
This leaves FlipSid3 with just two starting players, Yegor "markeloff" Markelov and Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen, who "will return to competition in full force along with three new members following the FACEIT Major", according to the North American organisation.
The announcement comes after a period of inactivity from the team, who have attended just one LAN event in 2018, the ELEAGUE Major Boston, where they were eliminated in the New Challengers Stage with Denis "seized" Kostin acting as a stand-in.
WorldEdit and B1ad3 have been on FlipSid3's ranks since 2015, when the organisation secured the services of dAT Team. During this period, F3 attended eight Majors, peaking with a top-eight finish at ESL One Cologne 2016 after knocking out NiP.
lollipop21k was the team's latest recruit, having been signed from GoodJob in April. He is heading towards the FlipSid3 exit door without having attended a single LAN tournament with the team, though he managed to impress online with an average 1.18 rating.
With these changes, FlipSid3 currently have:
Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy (coach)
