Spargo joins KOVA

The Finnish shuffle continues as KOVA announce the signing of Jarkko "⁠Spargo⁠" Rahja from hREDS.

One of Finland's rising talents, Nikita "⁠Derkeps⁠" Sirmitev, took leave from KOVA to focus on his studies, leaving a spot on the roster open. The Finnish organization has now announced it will be the former hREDS player Spargo who will join their starting five.

Spargo will be in charge of the Big Green in KOVA

During his tenure in hREDS, which started in March of last year, the 19-year-old AWPer accrued a 1.07 rating and an impressive 1.24 impact rating, helping hREDS reach several grand finals in national leagues and cups, namely those of Eliisa Vihde League, Telia Esports Series Season 2 and Rainmaker Open, but the team fell short every time, ending the aforementioned events in second place.

“Spargo was the only player we really considered and had the needed skillset to fill the spot Derkeps left after going inactive," says KOVA's General Manager Timo Tarvainen, "we thank Christer Kasurinen and hREDS for good negotiations.”

KOVA's roster is comprised of:

Finland Samu "⁠uli⁠" Leirilaakso
Finland Lauri "⁠pietola⁠" Hietala
Finland Samuli "⁠Twixie⁠" Herrala
Finland Petteri "⁠peku⁠" Jaakkola
Finland Jarkko "⁠Spargo⁠" Rahja

I haven't heard much about him, I don't think that's a good signing. For me KOVA should bench pietola, because he seems like an useless player, and add BONA, because he seems to have big impact, and RAIMOVORMISTO, because he seems to be pretty good.
2020-08-07 12:20
And you seem to be pretty retarded.
