HellRaisers confirm StarLadder Major line-up

HellRaisers have formally unveiled the line-up with which they will be attending the upcoming StarLadder Major.

Žygimantas "⁠nukkye⁠" Chmieliauskas, HellRaisers' most recent addition, was registered as a coach/reserve player and will replace Bence "⁠DeadFox⁠" Böröcz, who has been on the bench since March.

This means that HellRaisers will be playing in Berlin without a coach behind them as Sergey "⁠lmbt⁠" Bezhanov was not part of the line-up submitted to Valve.

nukkye will attend the Major with HellRaisers

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.

HellRaisers will attend the Major with:

Ukraine Kirill "⁠ANGE1⁠" Karasiow
Jordan Issa "⁠ISSAA⁠" Murad
Czech Republic Tomáš "⁠oskar⁠" Šťastný
Spain Christian "⁠loWel⁠" Garcia Antoran
Lithuania Žygimantas "⁠nukkye⁠" Chmieliauskas

2019-07-20 18:24
Why? He has used it like that before...
2019-07-20 18:25
DeadFox is on the submitted roster with nukkye as coach, but he will play making use of the rule that allowed Zews to play on MIBR. So they kinda of had the 3 man core, but actually don't. I don't like it too much tbh, zews was fine but they're bending the rulebook too much with this.
2019-07-20 18:18
Yeah they kind of abused that new rule
2019-07-20 18:19
I'm sure Starladder was aware of this tho, the new rule was surely just made to help them and the br guys. But MIBR case is fair, while HR is doing just what Majors have been trying to avoid for so many years. Hopefully they won't go out 0-3 and prove they deserved that spot, otherwise it would make everything look even worse.
2019-07-20 18:32
Very true, hovewer they have been strugleing lately but I think they will be able to win a game or two.
2019-07-20 18:34
how is it fair for one but not fair for another if its in the rules? its not like mibr cant use cold, they are actually saying they're not letting cold play
2019-07-20 19:16
It's quite easy to see why, MIBR has 4 guys from the previous major and the coach that they wanted to use and don't bring someone else. Meanwhile HR has no coach and 3 new players. CSGO Majors are around the idea that the players keep the spot they earn and not the orgs. That's something most of the community always praised from Valve Majors, you should earn your place in the server. HR is making use of a rule to be on the Major despite this roster never earning the right to be there, MIBR won their spot playing CS. I don't blame HR tho, any team would have done the same if they could. Starladder is at fault here letting them break the spirit of the Major, I'm sure they were aware that HR was going to do this.
2019-07-20 20:01
ah right i didnt realise hr had that many new players, i thought maybe 1 or 2 but not 3 so fair enough and cheers

There are better options to put for 0-3. For instance, wait for the Minor teams, then decide.
2019-07-20 19:41
I think Forze will be everyone's 0-3 pick , or MVP PK if they qualify. Oh , and also , do you get souvenir cases for correct pick ems ? (sorry for being dumb btw).

They did by listing one of the new players as coach. With that, they then replaced deadfox with the player listed as the coach so they won't have their coach behind them

I just read that a few seconds ago, so basically now if you have only 2 players that played a major before, you can still maintain the spot, this is a joke Don't get me wrong, it's cool that eventually they get to play the at the major, but still roster rules are an absolute joke at this point.

You can, as long as you have a player from the 3-man core in either the starting lineup (the usual norm) or as the coach/reserve (the thing they're doing now)
2019-07-20 19:44
#192
 |

I understand your point, but still, you're just evading the 3-man core by having only 2 active players who have a spot, while keeping the 3rd on the bench

I'm honestly kinda glad that the roster rules were broken here. I get that it's stupid and unfair and whatever, but the major will be more competitive and enjoyable this way! If we had a trash stand in roster instead with BotFox, it would suck. Now, it will be enjoyable and oskar can rekt some noobs
2019-07-20 18:07
roster rules weren't broken?
2019-07-20 18:07
It's the coach reserve swap, something StarLadder initially intended to prevent but recently allowed. The rules weren't broken I guess, but they were changed and inevitably many people will complain because they will see a real roster and not a stand in roster lul.

StarLadder made that possible like 2 days ago because of Coldzera situation in MIBR, before it wasn't possible for this major. Edit: oh, not even 2 days ago, but yesterday.

2019-07-20 18:24
Yeah, I guess brazilian viewership is too big. Before it was only in case of emergency like visa issues or health conditions with proofs, so HR supposed to play with Hobbit or DeadFox, since only Issa can possibly have visa issues and it's still 2/5, and that's if we're considering that before September his visa expires. Basically, StarLadder made possible to pull a Cloud9 in the last moment. This also explains to me why HR weren't using their coach and timeouts in most cases.

He said "again". Mouz was out of the Major in FACEIT London, and lowel wasn't in the team back then. In #111, the guy said "again", which meant lowel had stickers before the StarLadder Major. When, and which team?
2019-07-20 21:01
Atlanta 2k17 and Krakow 2k17 with M O U S E S P O R T S
2019-07-20 21:04

Shit orgs. Shit rules. Shit work
2019-07-20 18:50
thats why this coach rule is completely retarded, you change 3/5 of your roster = you lose the spot
2019-07-20 18:55
This team can be top5 if they add xantares
2019-07-20 19:00
nah
2019-07-20 19:11
The new bullshit rule introduced by StarLadder only helps 2 teams. The Brazilians like all bullshit rules always do. And HellRaisers who have the same parent company. If this isn't corruption then IDK what is.

its still 0-3, deadfox was the problem Kappa
2019-07-20 19:58
It's not like it would be any different with him, without woxic it's just went downhill. There was some rumor in CIS region that Hobbit was very toxic, not listening to team or coach, etc. And then there's short term contract with oscar, so he might leave after major.

HR got allowed but c9 doesnt? why?
2019-07-24 14:37
Because they only have one player from their last major setup (autimatic)
