Winstrike hint at new recruits

The CIS team have indicated on Twitter that they have added three new players while Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys is back into the starting line-up.

Following the team's disappointing run at FACEIT Major, where they went out with a 0-3 record in the New Legends Stage, the Russian organization took a drastic step and benched all players except Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov.

According to a picture posted on the team's Twitter page and to their ESEA roster, Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen and Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin have both been recruited from FlipSid3.

WorldEdit and wayLander are on the move

wayLander's addition comes as a surprise as the 24-year-old had been tasked with rebuilding the FlipSid3 line-up alongside Yegor "markeloff" Markelov, while WorldEdit had been transfer listed by the North American organisation.

Seventeen-year-old rifler David "n0rb3r7" Danielyan, who burst onto the CIS scene at the start of this year under dAT and WINside, is also part of the refurbished lineup.

Rounding out the roster is Kvik, who returns to the active line-up after a brief period on the bench, which now features just Gregory "balblna" Oleinick, Savelii "jmqa" Bragin and Nikita "waterfaLLZ" Matveyev - three players whose fate remains subject to conjecture.

Winstrike's new lineup is as follows:

Russia Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov
Lithuania Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys
Russia Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen
Russia Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin
Russia David "n0rb3r7" Danielyan

Russia Dmitry "iksou" Mikhaylichenko (coach)

Russia Gregory "balblna" Oleinick (benched)
Russia Savelii "jmqa" Bragin (benched)

2018-10-18 08:39
Those 2 are going to jail I hope, they can play out there any games they want
2018-10-18 10:56

Still better than the talentless benched players who obviously peaked only once. We call that a fluke in normal language.
2018-10-17 21:03
So, which one fluke do you like, Gambit in Krakow, c9 in Boston, North at dreamhack or this?

The most satisfying fluke was C9 at Boston. Idk why, just felt like the perfect moment, and let’s be honest when an IGL chokes 3-4 rounds due to poor time management, that IGL already doomed the team.
