Sprout add kressy, slaxz-

Sprout return to their roots with the addition of two German players.

Sprout have officially announced the signing of Marko "⁠kressy⁠" Đorđević and Fritz "⁠slaxz-⁠" Dietrich to round out their starting five, as the squad's active roster had been depleted to three players.

The return to a German lineup had been in the making since the end of 2020, when Sprout's Polish duo, Michał "⁠snatchie⁠" Rudzki and Paweł "⁠dycha⁠" Dycha, were removed from the active roster last December following a failed bid to qualify for ESL Pro League.

kressy and slaxz- will now don the Sprout jersey after two years in aTTaX

Reports late last year noted kressy and slaxz- were high on Sprout's shortlist, with the rumors of their acquisition by the German organization gaining steam when both players stated that they would not be renewing their contracts with ALTERNATE aTTaX, the team they had been playing for since the beginning of 2019.

Adding to the acquisition of the two new players, Sprout have also expanded their coaching staff by signing Jan "jansen" Westerheide, formerly of BIG Academy, as the team's analyst.

Sprout are now set to return to action with their full German lineup at UNITED Pro Series, although they will then have to play the ESL Meisterschaft playoffs with stand-ins as the incoming duo played the regular season with ALTERNATE aTTaX and are therefore ineligible, before getting the upcoming ESEA MDL season underway.

Sprout's lineup is the following:

Germany Timo "⁠Spiidi⁠" Richter
Germany Denis "⁠denis⁠" Howell
Germany Josef "⁠faveN⁠" Baumann
Germany Marko "⁠kressy⁠" Đorđević
Germany Fritz "⁠slaxz-⁠" Dietrich

Germany Niclas "⁠enkay J⁠" Krumhorn (coach)

Poland Paweł "⁠dycha⁠" Dycha (transfer-listed)

slaxz and kressy are good players but they haven't done anything special while at ATTAX. It could turn out to be greater than the sum of its parts but dycha and snatchie were probably Sprout's best players last year, so they will be tough to replace
2021-01-06 17:57
4 replies
dycha was the best player for sure, but faveN was clearly the 2nd best player recently. Snatchie started off strong, but has been nothing special as of late, sadly.
2021-01-06 18:06
slaxz- is a good player who has a lot of potential and also hasn't reached his peak yet and I think that he can become a strong t1 AWPer with the help of enkay, their analyst and the team. I also think that he is individual as good as snatchie. kressy is also a good player but I doubt that he can be the star player dycha was last year. faveN was their 2nd best player last year and he has also a lot of potential so I hope he can also perform in LAN and in big events. Sprouts problem are denis and spiidi because they were underwhelming the last years and I hope that they play better this year. Overall I think that this roster is worse than the previous roster on paper but now they have more synergy, can speak jerman and also have an analyst who can support them so let's see how they will perform

Yep they should do that...
2021-01-06 19:04
Yeah this would be a good move. But imo they should also remove denis and add Krimbo/JDC if they actually remove spiidi. Maybe they can also build a six mens roster with prosus to give him some more experience. They could play with him in MDL against some weaker teams and use denis against good opponents just like Na'vi did with B1t

i dont think prosus deserves a place on a top 3 german team at the moment He should go to UOL first

2 replies
Yeah prosus isn't ready for a top 3 german team at the moment but he would be like a standin and play against teams Sprout can beat with and without denis so that he can gain some experience. I also hope that he won't join UOL because I don't think they are going anywhere without JDC and with the current roster. UOL should've got some BIG Academy players a half year ago and build a new team with JDC and maybe Anddy and Patrick but now I think it's top late. Btw if prosus joins UOL now he will waste a few years in german leagues and ESEA advanced

he is like what 17? playing a year or two in german leagues isnt gonna hurt him and playing ESEA advanced would actually be really good for him

dycha wants to leave--> snatchie isnt that good to keep on an english speaking roster--> 2nd best AWP wants to split up with his team---> pick him and start with a new full german lineup in addition to some decent rifler like kressy( decent, might synergize well with slaxz like shox/Smithzz in the past)
2021-01-06 22:28
downgrade? slaxz is insane. i would only argue that kressy is a downgrade to dycha individually. but now you have no communication barrier anymore and maybe even better chemistry. this move made 100% sense
