Syman sign Keoz on full-time basis*

Following a successful two-week trial, Nicolas "⁠Keoz⁠" Dgus has officially been added to Syman's starting roster.

The Kazakhstan-based organisation signed Keoz on trial to compensate for the departure of Artem "⁠iDISBALANCE⁠" Egorov, who left the organisation in early March to play alongside the CIS mix of Spirit. Since joining, the player represented Syman at the Good Game League Stage 1 qualifier, where the team was eliminated in the quarter-finals, following a 23-25 loss to pro100 on Mirage.

Syman have solidified their lineup with the addition of Keoz

Over the past two years, the 18-year-old Belgian has represented a variety of French-speaking rosters, including Salty Skins, 3DMAX and, most recently, Epsilon.

With the signing of Keoz to a full-time role, Syman are now composed of:

Azerbaijan Maksim "⁠t0rick⁠" Zaikin
Kazakhstan Ramazan "⁠Ramz1kBO$$⁠" Bashizov
Kazakhstan Sanzhar "⁠neaLaN⁠" Iskhakov
Belgium Nicolas "⁠Keoz⁠" Dgus
Russia Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy

Kazakhstan Aset "⁠Solaar⁠" Sembiyev (coach)

*UPDATE: After reaching out to Syman, HLTV.org learned that the roster will proceed to communicate in Russian. This is possible because Nicolas "⁠Keoz⁠" Dgus has a rudimentary understanding of the language, thanks to his Ukrainian heritage.
