Windigo to play ESL Pro League Relegation with blocker and v1c7or

Windigo have announced that they will play the upcoming ESL Pro League relegation process with their former lineup featuring Viktor "v1c7oR" Dyankov and Yanko "blocker" Panov.

The team is unable to use their two newest players, Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss and Buğra "Calyx" Arkın, brought in in July, as the league's rules prevent them from making changes to their roster during the season.

For that reason, Windigo will use their two former players, v1c7oR and blocker, with whom the Bulgarian side played the regular portion of ESL Pro League Season 9, placing fourth in Group C after close losses to Natus Vincere, G2, and fnatic.

v1c7or and blocker will step back into Windigo's roster for EPL relegation

The relegation process will begin on August 15 with the pre-relegation tournament, in which Windigo will face Heretics in the opening round, with NiP and Turkey5 on the other side of the double-elimination bracket.

The winner will keep their spot in Pro League, while the second and third-placed teams will go up against Sprout and Spirit in a secondary double-elimination bracket for two more spots in the tenth season of the league.

Windigo will play the relegation process with the following five:

Bulgaria Kamen "bubble" Kostadinov
Bulgaria Valentin "poizon" Vasilev
Bulgaria Georgi "SHiPZ" Grigorov
Bulgaria Viktor "v1c7oR" Dyankov
Bulgaria Yanko "blocker" Panov

2019-08-13 22:30
I played a lot of casual games, and I think I lost most of them. My first games I was top fragging, but that anomaly stopped real quickly.

It's not like they are replaced by randoms, they played together for a very long time so they still have chemistry between them, also full bulgarian lineup instead of an international one so the communications will be very gud

And for you the communication have no link With the chemistry ? I said this cause this is the first org who step back. In fact here it’s probably the communication as sk got prob with stewie.

Just saying that's is more easy to get a chemistry between players with same nationalities and language instead of having an international lineup which is obviously less natural in the talks and the calls IG than their full bulgarian lineup

Ofc so we are agree since the start ... I don’t really like international line up also mousesport and faze look pretty good. But when you have fnatic against Astralis it’s look like Swedish against danish it’s more exciting !! Especially if they play on hometown

Though in your first statement that they broke the chemistry create between Calyx Hadji and the bulgarians by recreated the original lineup for EPL relegation

Kinda bs considering relegation tournament is so far apart from regular season. If anything it should be counted under season 10 roster rules
2019-08-13 22:40
Lul , imagine their morale after being kicked and then should play with rats teammates to help them to stay alive at Pro League

What if they qualify for season x? They still have to play with victor and blocker? Cause if yes that means rip windigo

2019-08-14 09:59
Can someone tell me, why they even benched them? I mean, they got a good progress, making some playoffs also winning wesg. And after that? Why they switch lineup?
2019-08-14 10:02
I totally agree and what if they succeed would they bench them again? Not fair at all
