Windigo bench v1c7oR, blocker; to trial international players
The Bulgarian lineup had been on the up this year as they won the WESG World Finals and Moche XL Esports, peaking at No. 13 in the World Ranking in April.
However, Valentin "poizon" Vasilev and company were unable to punch their ticket to the Europe Minor as they went out in last place in the closed qualifier. Most recently, they also got eliminated by Heroic in the GG.BET Chicago Invitational and couldn't secure a place at IEM Chicago.
Maksym Bednarskyi, Windigo's Gaming Managing Partner, pointed out a lack of stability and creativity, which prevented the team from reaching the "Tier 1 level". The organization has decided to test out international players to solve this problem.
"After a series of tournaments that our team played after the WESG World Finals, it became clear that we lacked stability and creativity to reach the Tier 1 level. Today we are taking a step towards the international lineup and we take very motivated and talented players to test them." said Maksym Bednarskyi, Windigo's Gaming Managing Partner.
"We have enough time to switch to the English language within the training process and to start the next season with the updated lineup! We set for ourselves only the highest goals and we will do everything to please our fans! Cheer up for Windigo Gaming!"
Windigo's lineup, which will soon be filled out by international players, can be found below:
