Johnta departs Winstrike

The Ukrainian tactician Ivan "Johnta" Shevtsov is no longer a part of Winstrike, the organization has announced.

During Johnta's six-month tenure with Winstrike, the roster underwent big changes, seeing the departure of members that were key to the team's Major successes, including Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov, Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys, and David "n0rb3r7" Danielyan.

Johnta is back on the market after six months with Winstrike

Winstrike has since reformed and now features a Kazakh core of Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov, Aidyn "KrizzeN" Turlybekov, and Viktor "Lack1" Boldyrev, but their results haven't been impressive, most recently placing last at We! Play Forge of Masters S2 Finals after losses to GamerLegion and forZe.

The team's General Manager Adalyat Mamedov said that the "vision of the coach and players differed", causing the change:

"After the building of the new lineup and the month of work, we realized that the vision of coach and players differed on the work process and team’s style. It does not say anything bad about the coach or players, they just could not achieve mutual understanding and synergy. That happens and everyone in the team understood that it would be better to resolve this situation right away. In this regard, I regret to inform that from today Ivan ‘Johnta’ Shevtsov is no longer the coach of CS:GO lineup of the Winstrike Team.

"Johnta showed himself as a true professional, leader and mentor who knows the game very well. During his work in Winstrike, the team has grown tremendously, especially in tactics. We are grateful to him for the work he did and the team he gathered. We wish him glorious victories and I am sure that he will find a team which he will lead to big victories." - Winstrike General Manager Adalyat Mamedov

In a comment for HLTV.org, Johnta added that he is open to offers from any region, with ambition to bring his new team to the top:

"I'm open to offers no matter what region. I know I have needed experience and knowledge to bring any team to the top. If you have high goals and ambitions, let's talk. Contact me at johntacsgo@gmail.com."

Winstrike are now:
