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 "Ramz1k" Bashizov
Kazakhstan Sanzhar "neaLaN" Ishkakov
Belgium Nicolas "Keoz" Dgus
Russia Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy

Kazakhstan Aset "Solaar" Sembiev (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.
