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