Invictus sign quartet

The Invictus lineup is once again complete after the Chinese organization announced the signing of four new players and parted ways with Heng "⁠expro⁠" Yang and Vadim "⁠V4D1M⁠" Panchuk.

Invictus had been down to a single player after their former in-game leader, expro, left the team for personal reasons, while V4D1M followed in the footsteps of ex-teammate Anton "⁠Koshak⁠" Platko and returned to Europe.

In the process of putting together a new team, the Chinese organization signed ex-R-Stars duo Peng "⁠xiaosaGe⁠" Song and Lifan "⁠Viva⁠" Ran, with the former taking up the mantle of the in-game leader.

The remaining two new players are JiaMing "⁠DeStRoYeR⁠" Gu, previously of EHOME, and 18-year-old Egor "⁠killmatic⁠" Storozhok.

Perhaps the least known out of the fresh Invictus lineup, the Russian AWPer posted some impressive numbers while he was playing for JiJieHao, averaging a 1.17 rating in regional qualifiers for various Big Events in late 2019.

Earlier this year, killmatic also played his first LAN on record at WX Invitational Winter in Bangkok, Thailand, where he was the joint-highest-rated player as he led a Russian Hard4U mixture to third place with a 1.35 rating over 10 maps.

Invictus' new lineup looks as follows:

China Peiqi "⁠flying⁠" Song
China Peng "⁠xiaosaGe⁠" Song
China JiaMing "⁠DeStRoYeR⁠" Gu
China Lifan "⁠Viva⁠" Ran
Russia Egor "⁠killmatic⁠" Storozhok

China MinHui "⁠sPiNacH⁠" Sun (coach)

2020-03-20 13:39
whats up with these random russians in chinese teams?
2020-03-20 13:42
maybe geographical reasons (russian living in far east, south east of their country) but still funny af lol
2020-03-20 13:58
We leave in Far East so ping to EU is 180 and to Beijing it is 70 so we prefer to play there and learn a bit of Chinese to communicate. And some people like mentioned killmatic and others did pretty well playing for Chinese teams so it is all fine here for those curious.
