SOKER and DeathZz sidelined in Movistar Riders

Aitor "SOKER" Fernández and Raúl "DeathZz" Jordán Nieto will no longer play for Movistar Riders, although they remain contractually bound to the organization.

SOKER was one of only three remaining founding members of Movistar Riders, the team Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas and Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran formed last year to try and impulse a Spanish squad to international play. He and DeathZz, who was brought on to take loWel's place when the Spaniard left to HellRaisers last spring, have been moved to the bench as the Spanish side is looking to make changes.

SOKER at the BLAST Pro Series Madrid Play-in

Since loWel and mixwell's departures Movistar Riders have struggled to find their previous form, with the days of being on the brink of becoming a top 30 team now behind them. The changes come after several failed online qualifying runs as well as a painful loss to Heretics in LVP's La Copa final in Madrid earlier this month.

Looking forward, the Spanish team will be playing the current ESEA MDL Europe season as well as the European Champions Cup, where they will try to find better form than they have had since the end of summer.

The two outgoing players have stated that Riders will be hearing offers for them and an announcement about their replacements is expected to be made by the organization in the coming days.

Movistar Riders are now:

Spain Alejandro "ALEX" Masanet
Spain Alejandro "mopoz" Fernández-Quejo Cano
Spain Rajohn "EasTor" Linato

Spain Galder "bladE" Barcena (coach)

Spain Aitor "SOKER" Fernández (benched)
Spain Raúl "DeathZz" Jordán Nieto (benched)

2019-10-18 15:16
Meyern just arrived Sharks. And they are doing quite well. I doubt that it goes to a team that is currently inferior. Sharks play the Final to ECS and play ESL Américas. Riders right now doesn't qualify yo UML

Yes because deathzz is bad with comms. not lowel.

Makes sense. gBots should never have split from the beginning after their first succesful tournament. They had huge potential and that split killed the whole spanish scene it seems like.

DeathZz was actually the second best player ( and talented FPL-C player btw ) after ALEX, if they benched him is because of who they are signing ( same roles/positions ).

2019-10-18 15:31
Exactly... I would have kept ALEX (the best by far rn), Eastor (who else can AWP if not?) and Deathzzz (second best in the team for me)... no idea who they're bringing tho...

Lo primero que dijo Mixwell al irse fue hacer mención a la afición española la cual está llena de ponzoña como tú y lo diferente que era la afición estadounidense. Un ejpañó endofobo pidiendo que se haga disband del mejor equipo de España. Si es que eres escoria. Y tranquilo que Mixwell volverá, pero no estés tú para ese entonces, buscate un equipo internacional al que apoyar.
