k23 sign AdreN, fame

The Kazakhstani side now boasts a six-man roster with the addition of the veteran and the youngster.

K23 have signed former Virtus.pro veteran Dauren "⁠AdreN⁠" Kystaubayev and 17-year-old ex-SG.pro up-and-coming star Petr "⁠fame⁠" Bolyshev, the organization has announced. With the addition of the two new members, the Kazakhstani team now fields six players.

The organization hasn't commented on the fashion in which the six-man roster will be used, but according to a Tweet from Alexey "⁠OverDrive⁠" Birukov, Aydos "⁠kade0⁠" Khairzhan has been placed in the position of the sixth player.

AdreN represented the K23 tag for several years in CS:S and CS 1.6

AdreN had been teamless for over six months, since his departure from Virtus.pro in mid-2020. He now returns to activity under the K23 tag, which he represented in 2005-2009 in Counter-Strike: Source and in Counter-Strike 1.6, reuniting with his former Gambit and HellRaisers teammate Rustem "⁠mou⁠" Telepov.

The other addition, fame, is mostly known for his time in SG.pro, with whom he averaged a 1.16 rating in 2020 across over 150 maps in the lower-tier scene.

K23 now have the following six-man lineup:

Kazakhstan Sanzhar "⁠neaLaN⁠" Iskhakov
Kazakhstan Rustem "⁠mou⁠" Telepov
Russia David "⁠n0rb3r7⁠" Danielyan
Kazakhstan Dauren "⁠AdreN⁠" Kystaubayev
Kazakhstan Aydos "⁠kade0⁠" Khairzhan
Russia Petr "⁠fame⁠" Bolyshev

Why would they sign AdreN, I though he retired already, he should I think. fame is really good, nice signing. But those players are not what K23 needed. I think overall this K23 lineup isn't going to work out, it's pretty good on paper but I see no way for this to work.
