HellRaisers confirm StarLadder Major line-up
HellRaisers have formally unveiled the line-up with which they will be attending the upcoming StarLadder Major.
This is not the first time that a team has listed an active player as a coach to bend the rules enforcing a line-up to retain the majority of the roster that competed at the previous Major in order to hold on to the spot at the next Valve-sponsored competition. Earlier this year, Cloud9 registered Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro as a coach for the IEM Katowice Major, only to move him into the starting lineup for the tournament to replace Maikil "Golden" Selim, who was unable to attend the event due to health reasons.
HellRaisers, who are currently ranked 32nd in the world, will compete in the New Challengers Stage of the StarLadder Major after finishing in 12th-14th place in Katowice, where they were defeated by FaZe, NiP and Cloud9 in the New Legends stage.
Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow and Issa "ISSAA" Murad are the only remaining players from the line-up that played in Katowice. Özgür "woxic" Eker was in March transferred to mousesports, while Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov and DeadFox were both benched by the organisation.
