HellRaisers confirm Hobbit acquisition
The move confirms recent reports of HellRaisers' plans to replace bondik with the Kazakh player, which became all but confirmed when the Ukrainian revealed that he is a free agent earlier on Thursday.
Hobbit joins HellRaisers following a two-month period on Gambit's transfer list, during which he stepped back into the team for StarSeries i-League Season 6, where the Kazakh-Russian team finished 12th-14th.
"Vlad is an excellent player, but, unfortunately, we couldn't use his potential to its fullest because of his role. Changing roles on the team would have created a mess, so that’s why we decided to make this decision." Johnta said in a statement to HellRaisers.pro.
"I'm sure that bondik will strengthen any team he joins as he is a very experienced and motivated player with great personal skills. It's a shame that we weren't able to realize all of his qualities on our team. I wish him luck, knowing he'll reach all of his goals."
Hobbit will debut for HR in ESL Pro League, where the team are set to face Heroic, Windigo, and G2 in their last matches of the league on November 13-14, which will determine whether they qualify for the finals.
His first offline event with his new squad will be the SuperNova CS:GO Malta, which will take place from November 29 to December 2.
