nukkye open to new challenge as he rules out HellRaisers stay

Žygimantas "nukkye" Chmieliauskas has indicated that he is seeking a move away from HellRaisers despite the organisation's plans to rebuild the team.

In a Twitlonger post, the Lithuanian player explained that he doesn't wish to be involved in the new CIS-based squad that HellRaisers are building as he doesn't feel comfortable playing for a Russian-speaking team due to his insufficient command of the language.

nukkye went on to describe the last six months of his HellRaisers tenure, in which he had to switch roles and adapt to a language he hadn't used "in a long time", as an "emotional roller coaster".

nukkye wants a new challenge after a year with HellRaisers

The 22-year-old was moved to the bench earlier on Thursday alongside Vadim "Flarich" Karetin and Ivan "AiyvaN" Semenets as HellRaisers look to rebuild the team after a series of disappointing results. The organisation also parted ways with Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow and Igor "crush" Shevchenko, ending a six-year association with the Ukrainian veteran.

nukkye, who added that he wishes to stay in Europe until the coronavirus crisis is over, has been on HellRaisers' books since April 2019, when he was signed as a replacement for Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov. He averaged a 1.05 LAN rating while with the team, most notably attending the StarLadder Major and the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals.

If VP decides to go international, it can be solid pick (or even without that, hes speaking some russian, right?). He can rifle afaik and still can be that secondary awp. Or c0ntact of course. I dont see him in godsent now. The would have to get rid of krystal, which is probably not happening.

U must be baiting right ? Godsent def pays their players more than Hr is a ukranian based org with fucked up budget Even navi who is rich asf pays their players around 10k$ Beside s1mple i heard his contract is diferent just like when cold was on sk
2020-04-03 01:52
Bro stop baiting. Wtf does hr being a Ukranian org have to do with the fact they are a much bigger company than GODSENT (trash no name org). Secondly Navi is one of the biggest orgs in eSports period, don't pull random numbers out of your imagination. I guarantee s1mple is one of the highest paid players if not the highest. Lastly, CIS has one of the largest eSports scenes. There's probably just as many CIS CS players as there are EU players. It's a massive market, so they can afford to pay their players. VP, Navi, forze, avangar, spirit, HR have/had multiple pro teams across different eSports platforms - particularly dota2 n CS. What the fuck is godsent known for?

liquipedia.net/counterstrike/GODSENT liquipedia.net/counterstrike/HellRaisers good sponsors you got there mate , plus godsent sold their players many times to diferent orgs and they got backings of investors who the fuck did hr ever sell? lmfao
2020-04-03 02:29
Yeah what sponsors does godsent have? 1 time razor blades from Philips? I'm sure they're investing A TON of money on this random eSports team, since u know - a razor is a must have for a gamer. 1xbet, the sole sponsor of HR is a gambling eSports site. They're owned by exinvest limited that was slapped with a 400k fine last year which it paid without blinking an eye. A better way to tell how invested a company is, is by checking how much they're actually spending on sponsoring their teams newfag. Godsent has attended way less tournaments (paid tickets/flights/hotels) than HR teams have, n I'm not even including the dota2 squads liquipedia.net/counterstrike/GODSENT/Res.. liquipedia.net/counterstrike/HellRaisers..

BIG -tiziaN -k1to +Nukkye +Spiidi tiziaN and k1to are the two worst performancing players on BIG. We know that BIG needs IGL, that's why i picked Spiidi, and i also think that nukkye would give this team a lot of firepower. I think this change would make BIG TOP 10 team in the world.

There is not enough good German players to build a TOP 10 team, they need to build an international team which the core of it would be German. This roster of BIG won't go further than they are here.
