PRIDE reveal new lineup

Less than a week after releasing the last two players of their previous roster, PRIDE have announced a new lineup for the next three months.

PRIDE released Tomasz "ToM223" Richter and Maciek "Luz" Bugaj less than a week ago, the last two players remaining from their previous roster. Now, PRIDE have revealed a new lineup which includes the Bulgarian players Ivan "Rock1nG" Stratiev and Nikola "NK4Y" Radushev.

NK4Y will be one of two Bulgarians joining PRIDE

The new lineup, which has been signed to PRIDE for the following three months, also includes three Poles, Michał "crank" Krystyniak, Kuba "Markoś" Markowski, and Michał "michi" Majkowski, and will have Luz come back as a substitute for the team in the ESL Polish Championship.

"We knew who PRIDE are. We played them many times. Now I can represent this organization with my new teammates. We have a lot of motivation, we want to show good CS. We are very happy to join this organization. Our first games in the ESL Polish Championships will be hard (against Team Kinguin and AGO), but we know that we are able to win. Thank you for the trust, PRIDE. To the battle!"

-Ivan "Rock1nG" Stratiev

PRIDE's new lineup will kick off their run in the ESL Polish Championship on Monday, going up against two of the strongest teams in Poland, Kinguin and AGO.

PRIDE's roster is now:

Bulgaria Nikola "NK4Y" Radushev
Poland Michał "crank" Krystyniak
Bulgaria Ivan "Rock1nG" Stratiev
Poland Kuba "Markoś" Markowski
Poland Michał "michi" Majkowski

Poland Vincent "VinS" Jozefiak (coach)

I enjoyed that Kurwalho thing
2018-08-12 21:15
would work but hltv basically threw this lineup into the bag of shit
2018-08-12 21:16
why they played like few matches and then departed?
2018-08-12 21:38
because hltv kids were shitting at them and they were probably reading all the shit about them
2018-08-12 21:44
ah... people nowadays can only shit talk
2018-08-12 21:49

I dunno, they showed up in a really good way under attackiereN banner in the closed qualifier (the difference being Fredie instead of Rock1ng). I'll be content if they at least get to the t2-3 online cups level in those following months.
