HellRaisers confirm roster benching

HellRaisers have announced that their current roster has been moved to the bench as the organization looks to rebuild the team.

HellRaisers have confirmed our previous report, which states that the current lineup is to be benched effective immediately following a lack of results during their time together.

ANGE1 & co.'s future now hangs in the balance

HellRaisers will now have the transfer season to look forward to, be it to create a new roster or revamp the one that has currently been moved to the bench, as several teams across the world will be making moves to boost their lineups when the Major comes to an end.

Other than the benching of the team, Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov is to remain tied to the organization on the transfer list while the other inactive player, Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz, has been anounced as no longer contractually bound to HellRaisers and is therefore now a free agent.

“This season hasn’t been easy for anyone who supports and believes in HellRaisers no matter what. All of the guys proved to be true professionals and talented players, but unfortunately we didn’t manage to build a team which every fan of HellRaisers could be proud of. However, a new season means new opportunities. We’ll soon announce an updated CS:GO roster, as well as some other good news!

"Let’s make HellRaisers great again!”

- Alex "Magician" Slabukhin, HellRaisers CEO

The HellRaisers roster is therefore:

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

Ukraine Sergey "lmbt" Bezhanov (coach)

Kazakhstan Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov (transfer list)

2019-09-05 02:02
The team has a fair amount of talent but they've literally not improved a bit. I don't think it's the players who are the problem, so much as there's no chemistry there, and the leadership is poor. It's a reasonable decision to me. The team went from low-end tier one to teetering on the bottom of tier two. Just look at their win percentages since forming, they're abysmal. They're basically the EU version of the previous C9 rosters.

Why you want a CIS IGL Hellraiser is an international line up and they speak english just need an international igl don t need to go To CIS
2019-09-04 22:52
There is no better igl available, Golden is most likely going to nip. Aleksib will recieve far more lucrative options then Hellraisers.

2019-09-04 23:19
Technically is available, the entire OG line up is available.
2019-09-05 02:22
Golden xd. I thought he would bring some new strats for NIP's shit Tier T side, but in the end they still sit and wait until there's 20 seconds left and then execute into a random bomb site with no actual information and no real map control. It was really an eyesore watching them play in this major. I really wonder WTF was going on

Honestly speaking, this gave me hope. The crazy roster deserves a better org which can provide them with whatever they want. Virtus pro/100t are few of them. Even OG can bench the current roster and pick crazy roster because these playera are hungry for win.

2019-09-05 00:03
Because they have to fight in the EU minor and there will never be a hope for them to enter the major again, with the current line-up.

First impression: This is sad. Interpretation - I put it down to one of two: (1) Money - we are losing on you guys. (2) A dysfunctional family. As Tolstoy said - all happy families are alike but every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way, (Not too sure on that quote - it is a long time since I read 'Anna' or 'War and Peace'.) Ok here is my two cents worth: There is either (1) a difference of opinion between generals (politicians) and players (troops). Or (2) a dissatisfaction between generals and troops. In real war of course the generals win. In CS it is different. They have different goals. Those goals contradicts. Generals (management) want results. Players want the best results. Sounds similar but they are different. The answer is to to tie payment (oh dear here comes MONEY) to results. Simple? Should be be but it is not straightforward ,

There will be lot of (hopefully interesting) roster moves in upcoming weeks, this is just the start. I tink some players will leave, but lets see maybe they can offer them good new teammates to stay? This is good news for oskar (maybe issaa, but he dropped form a lot). Nukkye didnt live to the expectations, lowel was at best "just fine" and angel.... just usuall hit or miss.
2019-09-05 08:05
deadly lineup
2019-09-05 09:48
Why don’t they just Switch angel and lowel, when they still have hobbit on the bench? Issa Hobbit Oskar neo (after faze got alexib) Maybe get_right lol or even keep nukkye he wasn’t too bad Sounds like it could work somewhat
2019-09-05 10:06
Nukkye expected to be star player but went out bottom fragger and low iq play-teammate, I dont think he has future in HR

PLS NO
2019-09-05 18:04
maybe oskar moving to a top 10 team? he deserves it
2019-09-05 18:54
Dunno, after mouse he looks washed up, and even in mous he was either GOD or absolute BOT from game to game, he s a risky pick with all the competition on the scene (maybe in FaZe instead of retiredian?)
2019-09-05 18:59
yes oskar at faze -Guardian and Coldzera -NEO looks strong imo
