Winstrike appoint Johnta as coach

Winstrike have added Ivan "⁠Johnta⁠" Shevtsov as coach, the Russian organisation has announced.

The Ukrainian coach had been searching for a new home after departing from TYLOO after a three-and-a-half-month tenure with the Chinese organisation at the end of April.

Johnta will be replacing Russian coach Daniil "⁠pipsoN⁠" Mescheryakov on Winstrike, who had stepped into the role in March. The Russian coach is currently on the lookout for a new challenge and can be reached by email here.

Johnta joins Winstrike as coach

In a statement on the Winstrike website, Head Manager, Adalyat Mamedov, expressed Johnta will be a great addition to the side, adding, "Johnta is a great specialist and I'm sure we will get better results in a short period of time".

Winstrike will have little under two weeks to prepare with Johnta for the CIS Minor Closed Qualifier for the StarLadder Major from June 8 through June 10, where they will compete with 15 other teams for qualification.

With Johnta's appointment, Winstrike now have:

Ukraine Vladyslav "⁠bondik⁠" Nechyporchuk
Russia Georgi "⁠WorldEdit⁠" Yaskin
Russia Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov
Russia David "⁠n0rb3r7⁠" Danielyan
Lithuania Aurimas "⁠Kvik⁠" Kvakšys

Ukraine Ivan "⁠Johnta⁠" Shevtsov (coach)

2019-05-20 20:39

2019-05-22 04:38

Not bad actually tbh, very young team with potential!! Maybe get Somedieyoung then for the hybrid setup, although I would never see him on this team... 5th could be Axle? And Hobbit > Bondik
2019-05-22 13:40
Spirit will not give up sdy to winstrike, maybe Na’Vi will buy him after the major for fabulous money About Bondik - I sure that he is really nice old player, Winstrike will not change him for Axile because they need at least one experienced guy in team P.S. I’m sorry for my English, I live in Russia and we have some difficulties with foreign languages :c

It is fine my friend, at least not toxic! I agree that they would want someone experienced and will probably keep Bondik. I also agree with SDY, one of my favorites to watch. I hope to see a new CIS team soon. Maybe new Navi: Quirket S1mple Electronic Somedieyoung Flamie/Buster
2019-05-23 01:35
I think that Na’Vi need to do -Flamie -Zeus +Qikert +Jame, then they can reach #1

Jame is such a baiter tho... I don’t like him also claiming that Christians attacked him when he was just upset over the loss that day. Even Avangar apologized for his behavior

if winstrike gets better with johnta, tyloo's new rubbish roster should disband

I don't want to offend Johnta, but I'm going to: he's a fucking trash. Zero results. Worse than Peacemaker. Worse than the second world war.
2019-05-20 22:36
Saw how much change that he did for TYLOO in such short period of time, so I'm sure that he will success in a CIS team

For me, Winstrike was the first-guess team Johnta would join after leaving HellRaisers. His cooperation with TYLOO was so promising, but... Good luck!
