CR4ZY unveil new roster under the wing of Johnta
CR4ZY have been without a team since selling their former roster to the North American organization c0ntact, ranked 20th in the world at the time of the transaction one month ago. Since then, with the help of former HellRaisers and TYLOO coach Johnta, CR4ZY have been grooming a quintet of Belarussian and Ukrainian players that were seen playing under the name Project X.
The two Belarussians on the team are former 97club, Nemiga, and Se7en player Igor "dERZKIY" Radosavlevich and former GoodJob and Monolith player Roma "dOBRIY" Rusak. The Ukrainian contingent is made up of the former Windigo Academy duo Sergey "Sergiz" Atamanchuk and Alexandr "Psycho" Zlobin as well as Dmitriy "SENSEi" Shvorak.
Since the turn of the year, Project X finished 9-16th in the DreamHack Open Anaheim Europe Open Qualifier, where they lost to KOVA in overtime, and 5-8th in the third CIS Minor Open Qualifier, where they once again lost in overtime, this time to eL'quvet.
“I'm very happy to start this new journey with CR4ZY! We share the same vision on how a CS team should be run and I'm sure we will build a successful team with the players we signed. Hard work has already started for us and I'm looking forward to our future.”
- Ivan "Johnta" Shevtsov, Head Coach
“After a very turbulent 2019 with lots of ups and downs, we've decided to set our own pace for 2020 and the following years by bringing together this very talented group of players led by someone as experienced as Johnta. Although there is lots of work ahead of us before we get to where we want to be, this feeling of redoing the whole process once more is as challenging as it is exciting and I'm more than happy to go through it surrounded by six people whose level of dedication matches their new team name.”
- Alen Šola, Head of Esports
