zoneR leaves Hard Legion

Hard Legion head coach Aleksandr "⁠zoneR⁠" Bogatiryev has departed the team, the Russian organisation has announced.

zoneR had been a long-time member of the Russian team, having joined up with Svyatoslav "⁠svyat⁠" Dovbakh and co. in October 2018 in DreamEaters, with whom he helped reach the StarLadder Berlin Major, in which the team achieved a 15-16th-place finish before leaving the organisation shortly after.

Less than a month later, Hard Legion picked up zoneR and the ex-DreamEaters team as the players and coach reunited. The Russian squad has yet to hit its former heights of a Major appearance, but the 32-year-old has coached his side to a series of third places in domestic events and a victory at MEGOGO Open, as well as to 28th place in the world rankings.

zoneR has parted ways with Hard Legion

Hard Legion’s mixed results have persisted in 2020 as a top-three finish at ESL One: Road to Rio - CIS was followed up by an uninspiring performance at the second RMR event, WePlay! Clutch Island, where the Russian side ended the tournament in the bottom two.

Hard Legion now have:

Russia Semyon "⁠kinqie⁠" Lisitsyn
Russia Svyatoslav "⁠svyat⁠" Dovbakh
Russia Vladislav "⁠Krad⁠" Kravchenko
Russia Igor "⁠Forester⁠" Bezotecheskiy
Ukraine Dmitry "⁠rAge⁠" Bolotov

Why would you kick coach, don't they lose rmr points? And they got a good chance of qualifying
2020-06-25 19:06
They don't lose any point for kicking their coach.
2020-06-26 11:42
So...Zoner or machogun?
2020-06-25 19:06
he is using both of those nicknames
2020-06-25 20:14
Shame for HL. Needed to change their players and not the coach!

btw he was kicked cuz on some discussion between cis players he said that their org not even better than Dreameaters, and last one was better in some ways. Hard Play(russian streamer, owner, co-founder and ceo of Hard Legion) heard about from someone(and ofc misterious guy lied about something), and Hard Play was angry on him. After some time, zoner wrote a message to him to discuss something, and 1 day after he and their manager were fined cuz he asked about conversation not by their manager (when CEO said that he can be asked without any managers), and after discussion about that fine Hard Play wrote a message in VK to svyat(idk to who he wrote, but looks like to him), that after game vs NaVi zoner will be fired

kassad needs to learn russian and join this team. HL has a potential
2020-06-25 23:07
shit org I guess look at the logo even logo is kinda sloppy
2020-06-26 00:30
Yeah their logo is wack, should have gone with an old Heroic style one, but not a gradient orange spartan helmet. Looks like something from 2004
2020-06-26 19:07
i thought they put "fire. png" instead of orange
