bondik joins Winstrike
The 25-year-old will step into the shoes of Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen, who has been shown the exit door just five months into his stint with the team.
During his time with Winstrike, wayLander averaged a 0.86 rating on LAN, helping the team to qualify for IEM Katowice via the Minor Play-In. At the Major, the Russian side went out 2-3 in the New Challengers Stage after recording losses to NRG, ENCE and Cloud9.
bondik joins Winstrike as a free agent after being released by Gambit earlier in the month together with compatriot and coach Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy. He spent just three months with the team, attending the SuperNova CS:GO Malta and the CIS Minor.
"I am glad to be a part of Winstrike," he told the team's website. "I believe it has good players and, if we work hard, we will be able to go far.
"Now we are trying to get used to each other. Soon we will try to bring joy to our fans. Thanks for your support."
Winstrike now have:
Daniil "pipsoN" Mescheryakov (coach)
