broky leaves ex-Epsilon

Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants, who was recently seen practicing with FaZe in a leaked screenshot, has left ex-Epsilon.

Teodor "⁠SPELLAN⁠" Nikolov has announced that broky has departed ex-Epsilon. The 18-year-old Latvian had been with the team since February, when he was picked up as a mostly unknown player shining in the Baltic scene.

broky has left ex-Epsilon as the post-Major shuffle begins

The move comes shortly after ex-Epsilon managed to qualify for the MSI MGA Finals which will take place at the Barclays Center during ESL One New York, and just days after a leak showed broky practicing with FaZe.

The Latvian's departure will leave ex-Epsilon down to four players, who will be using Viktor "⁠v1c7oR⁠" Dyankov as a stand-in for their upcoming leagues and tournaments, namely MDL, the aforementioned MSI MGA Finals, LOOT.BET Season 4, and the DreamHack Open Rotterdam qualifier.

ex-Epsilon, who will announce their final roster at the end of the month, are now:

Bulgaria Teodor "⁠SPELLAN⁠" Nikolov
Netherlands Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel
United Kingdom Kia "⁠Surreal⁠" Man
Bulgaria Nikola "⁠NK4Y⁠" Radushev (trial)
Bulgaria Viktor "⁠v1c7oR⁠" Dyankov (stand-in)

Bulgaria Dimitar "⁠DroW⁠" Slavkov (coach)

I don’t really understand faze’s move if they’d really go for him, like alright, he could do well in fpl, but playing In a team, against tier1 teams is another story, dude has no experience at all, even struggled against tier 3 teams when playing for epsilon, so that move makes no sense at all if true
