Spargo joins KOVA
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.
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.
