selectah announce lineup featuring oskar, SandeN, disco doplan
The team headlined by Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev has finalized its roster and is looking for an organization to represent.
selectah first surfaced in June, when Edward assembled a CIS-based squad that debuted in Nine to Five 2, but the formation was altered significantly after the player break as the decision was made to go down the international route.
After trying out different compositions, selectah decided on their five. Two of the original members, Edward and Justinas "jL" Lekavicius, were joined by three experienced players in Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný, Joakim "disco doplan" Gidetun, and Rasmus "SandeN" Sanden.
oskar was the first one of the trio to link up with selectah, playing with the team since mid-August in Nine To Five 3 and Malta Vibes Cup 8. The decorated Czech AWPer is also the team's biggest name, averaging a 1.08 rating over the last year.
The final two players only came in recently, with the team's coach, Aleksandr "sash1k" Baryakh, explaining that they parted ways with Roman "tappa" Medvedev due to communication issues after switching to English, while Flatron "juanflatroo" Halimi left when their "agreement with an organization fell apart".
The Scandinavian duo of SandeN and disco doplan finalized the team, with sash1k adding that he will continue to call the shots from the coaching position for now, but revealed that the long term goal is for SandeN to take the reins as they "have very similar view on the game".
The squad currently ranked #108 in the world continues to look for an organization or sponsors to support them, with interested parties urged to contact the team manager via Twitter.
