CR4ZY sign SHiPZ; emi to take player role

CR4ZY have announced that they have completed the signing of Georgi "⁠SHiPZ⁠" Grigorov from Windigo, with Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković moving into a player role in the team.

The duo will slot into the positions left empty after the departures of Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač and Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković to G2. On Twitter, CR4ZY labelled the players as "reckless" in what could be understood as confirmation of a 1pv.fr report claiming that the Serbian players had left for free due to irregularities in their contracts.

SHiPZ had been assessing his options since September, when he was placed on Windigo's transfer list - a move that saw the team lose their Bulgarian majority after Yanko "⁠blocker⁠" Panov and Viktor "⁠v1c7oR⁠" Dyankov had previously been ousted from the squad.

SHiPZ joins CR4ZY from Windigo

The 19-year-old played a key role in Windigo's title-winning campaign at the WESG 2018 Finals, earning the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award after helping the team to collect the grand prize of $500,000 with a 1.28 tournament rating.

emi was part of Valiance's first roster before transitioning to an analyst and coaching role in November 2018 as Rokas "⁠EspiranTo⁠" Milasauskas, nexa and Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo were brought in to boost the team's firepower.

Replacing emi in CR4ZY's squad as coach will be Neil "⁠NeiL_M⁠" Murphy, who previously worked with EspiranTo during their time under Imperial. The Irish coach recently had a five-month tenure with Grayhound, whom he coached at IEM Sydney, the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals and the StarLadder Major.

CR4ZY will make their first appearance with the new roster at DreamHack Open Rotterdam, which will take place from October 18-20. Having kept the majority of the roster that competed at the StarLadder Major, the team also have a guaranteed spot in the New Challengers Stage of the first Major of 2020.

With these changes, CR4ZY now have:

Serbia Nestor "⁠LETN1⁠" Tanić
Lithuania Rokas "⁠EspiranTo⁠" Milasauskas
Finland Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo
Serbia Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković
Bulgaria Georgi "⁠SHiPZ⁠" Grigorov

Ireland Neil "⁠NeiL_M⁠" Murphy (coach)

CR4ZY have put out a correction, clarifying that emi will be the in-game leader moving forward.
