Finest reveal new lineup, release fejtZ
The Israeli organization finally has a full lineup again.
Finest have announced the signing of three new players on Tuesday, completing the rebuilding process that began in July. In addition to the new signings, Finest announced that Estonian journeyman Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar has been released from the organization.
The newest signings include former member of Movistar Riders Kristjan "shokz" Jakobson, Rasmus "kreaz" Johansson, who last played with Apeks, and recent Endpoint player Robin "robiin" Sjögren. They are set to join existing Finest players Guy "anarkez" Trachtman and Martin "mar" Kuyumdjiev.
The Israeli organization Finest first began a phase of team rebuilding back in July, when they released four members of their lineup, sans fejtZ and coach Darko "soLo" Mitić. The process began with the signing of star AWPer anarkez, who made a name for himself with Secret. They followed up with this by signing mar in August, and eventually the release of soLo on September 1.
The new-look lineup has already been playing together for about a month, competing in the Elisa Fall Invitational, Malta Vibes Knockout Series 1, and the IEM Fall Europe open qualifiers. In ESEA Advanced, the team inherited the spot used by Ambush in Season 37, and as a result used Sébastien "SBT" Sabbadin and Kilian "Gringo" Garcia as stand-ins for a couple games to fulfill the roster requirements.
Here is the current lineup of Finest:
