juanflatroo joins Phoenix on trial

Phoenix have completed their roster with the addition of Flatron "juanflatroo" Halimi, team captain Teodor "SPELLAN" Nikolov has announced.

The Albanian talent has been picked up on a trial basis after impressing for the team as a stand-in, averaging a 1.12 rating in ESEA MDL and LOOT.BET Season 4 for the ex-Epsilon squad.

He will replace Nikola "NK4Y" Radushev on the European team's roster after the Bulgarian was given his marching orders earlier in the week.

juanflatroo joins the ranks of the ex-Epsilon squad

Formerly of KlikTech and Gamezone, juanflatroo attended the most recent Asia Minor with FFAmix, who finished last at the tournament in Berlin. He came out on top in the FACEIT Pro League in August and was heavily linked to Windigo and LDLC before helping m1x to reach the ECS Season 8 weekly brackets via the Challenger Cup.

Phoenix, who will take on HAVU on Monday in the grand final of the QIWI Teamplay Season 4 online tournament, now have:

United Kingdom Kia "Surreal" Man
Netherlands Joey "CRUC1AL" Steusel
Bulgaria Teodor "SPELLAN" Nikolov

How does this make it into a front page HLTV article?
2019-10-13 00:18
Same ... how many times we should watch for this dead team and their changes as they said TRIAL... so they can trial 1000players. Does that mean you will keep posting each week. What an useless shit here. Next week new player new news.

This roster is pretty decent for HLTV page. Also, there are several notable players, SPELLAN, CRUC1AL, and Surreal, which once have rotated from tier 2 - tier 1 team. It's like a news revolved around erkast, creating a team with strangers but erkast is a notable player for HLTV news.

It's hard to maintain a full roster without a proper organization supporting them. Like working voluntarily. I don't follow their performance personally, but I guess it's a bit notable because SPELLAN was an ex-Windigo, which was a hot take back then before dissolved, and then he was reintroduced on Epsilon, which is a somewhat famous organization. (Most famous organizations should have a headline) Also I'm kind of excited with this juanflatroo. Could be my new champion :d
