FATE add trio

The organization has undergone a core overhaul after lineup instability in the last two months.

FATE have completed an overhaul of their roster with the signing of three new players, Milen "⁠milky⁠" Iliev, Ivan "⁠Rock1nG⁠" Stratiev, and Kaloyan "⁠shaiK⁠" Borisov, the organization has announced.

The Bulgarian roster had been incomplete ever since Yanko "⁠blocker⁠" Panov decided to step down at the end of October to take a break. Over the next two months, the organization went on to bench Martin "⁠mar⁠" Kuyumdjiev in November and parted ways with Deyvid "⁠h4rn⁠" Benchev and coach Darko "⁠soLo⁠" Mitić in January.

Rock1ng is among FATE's new additions

With the new trio, FATE have brought in a combination of new blood and experience. While Rock1nG is a seasoned player, having represented some of Bulgaria's best teams such as BLUEJAYS, SKADE, Bpro, and Outlaws, 19-year-old milky and 18-year-old shaiK have only played three matches combined in HLTV.org's records, with FATE last year.

"I'm really happy to have the opportunity to prove myself once again, big thanks to niki1 for approaching me," Rock1nG told HLTV.org. "It's time to focus now, there's work that needs to be done and practice is essential, there's a lot of experience and talent in this team, so it's time to get to work."

The new team will make its debut in ESEA Premier, in which the organization managed to maintain its spot after dropping to the Relegation tournament in the last season. The revamped 36th season is slated to start on January 18 with the round-robin group stage, whose distribution is yet to be announced.

The changes make FATE's lineup the following:

Bulgaria Nikolay "⁠niki1⁠" Pantaleev
Bulgaria Ivan "⁠Patrick⁠" Ivanov
Bulgaria Milen "⁠milky⁠" Iliev
Bulgaria Ivan "⁠Rock1nG⁠" Stratiev
Bulgaria Kaloyan "⁠shaiK⁠" Borisov

I heard more spicy things about this guy and whenever he goes, dramas and conflicts start coz of him ..this guy is pure trash! Never seen such a bad player never. He should not retire since he's not a player but just quit this game. He is proving himself for 10 years still not proven? Hhahahaha

There's talent there. Discovering a player like poizon,Shipz or Cerq can get the org a lot of buyout money
2021-01-10 16:35
what do u mean? so many good bulgarian players in cs.They even won 500k 1st place in China.Ofc they will invest. And ofc there is matchfixing but as any other tier 3,4,5 teams all over the place in the world.

If they are making overhaul they should remove Patrick, he is really bad. And who even are milky and shaiK? It's their first professional team? I see no way of this team winning anything, unfortunately, R.I.P. FATE.
