October 19th, 2018 20:05

Winstrike have confirmed their new lineup, which sees two former FlipSid3 members, Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen and Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin, as well as WINside's David "n0rb3r7" Danielyan join the Russian squad.

The Russian organization hinted at the new lineup on Wednesday, when they posted a picture on social media showing the new members of the squad.

Earlier on Friday, Winstrike confirmed the new lineup, which sees Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys return to the active roster after being benched alongside the majority of the squad to rejoin Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov.

Only Kvik and Boombl4 remain from the original roster

The organization has also secured the services of former FlipSid3 players wayLander and WorldEdit, with 17-year-old n0rb3r7, who had previously played for WINside, rounding out the lineup.

The new team will be looking to improve Winstrike's track record as of recently. At the moment, their only upcoming tournament is the CIS Minor closed qualifier, which will take place on November 17-18.

Winstrike now have the following five:

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

new rising star. He actually declined offer from gambit and accepted the one from winstrike. B1ad3 noticed him when they were searching for their 5th player instead of markeloff and n0rb3r7 carried them on esea matches.
2018-10-19 20:32
source on him declining gambit offer?

Russian insider, who basically is n0rb3r7's mentor. He posted this on Russian facebook and then quickly deleted. imgur.com/a/2em7ZaI Comment from David (n0rb3r7): "While I was playing for WINside I've only had one offer from flipsid3, but the organizations haven't reached the agreement. When the contract with WINside was about to expire I suddenly recieved 3 offers at the same time: Forze, winstrike and gambit. I decided that I will accept the offer from winstrike as there are players that I feel comfortable to play with and will be able to show my high level of play!

Look at his name. Just like all Romanian names end in =escu, all Finnish names end in -nen for some reason. Very much confirmed Finnish, especially with the first name of Jan.
