88-Gaming with Ramz1k and t0rick come to life

A new team called 88-Gaming has come to life, featuring some well-known names in the CIS region including Ramazan "Ramz1kBO$$" Bashizov and Maksim "t0rick" Zaikin.

The former Syman duo returns following a short period of inactivity since the start of the year, when the Kazakhstani player followed in the footsteps of t0rick as he parted ways with the organization and made way for Rustem "mou" Telepov.

Their new squad will be coached by Counter-Strike 1.6 veteran Kirill "pohmel" Bobrik and led by Vladimir "VofkiN" Shmakov, who returns to a Russian-speaking lineup following a long tenure in Asia, where he played for teams such as UYA and 5POWER in 2017.

Ramz1kBO$$ and t0rick reunite in 88-Gaming

The last two pieces of the roster are Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan and Aivis "prelideN" Krastiņš, who reunite with t0rick after spending a short time playing together in HEY in mid-2018, with both players reemerging following a lengthy break from competing.

With their organization still yet to be announced, the new team will compete as 88-Gaming, a name that pohmel and VofkiN represented once before in Counter-Strike 1.6 at different times in 2008-2010.

88 are:

Kazakhstan Ramazan "Ramz1kBO$$" Bashizov
Russia Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan
Azerbaijan Maksim "t0rick" Zaikin
Russia Vladimir "VofkiN" Shmakov
Latvia Aivis "prelideN" Krastiņš

Russia Kirill "pohmel" Bobrik (coach)

2020-05-08 22:12
No I actually didn’t know this because I thought they chose 88 because it’s synonymous with luck and all good things in East Asian cultures so I was just curious

Luckily there is a lot of German-made weapons in the game to use. I just assume that is important for their ideology in and outside the game. :D Ps.: Ohh there are some Austrian ones as well, probably a big relief for them.
