forZe acquire Norwi, Fierce from Singularity

The Russian duo kickstarts a new era for forZe.

The young rifler Evgeny "⁠Norwi⁠" Ermolin and coach Artem "⁠Fierce⁠" Ivanov have joined forZe. Both competitors were part of the BEZ ZP roster which Singularity acquired in early September.

The move comes only a day after forZe announced the removal of Evgeny "⁠FL1T⁠" Lebedev, Almaz "⁠almazer⁠" Asadullin, and Anatoliy "⁠liTTle⁠" Yashin from the active roster following the team's failure to qualify for the PGL Major in Stockholm.

The 20-year rifler old will now play for forZe

Norwi ends his stint with Singularity after 42 days with the squad in which he accumulated a 1.19 rating, helping the team qualify to the William Hill Cup 2021.

"I’m excited for the opportunity in forZe, and I’m happy that Team Singularity have agreed to transfer me even though I’ve only been with them for a short period and came together with the rest of the BEZ ZP squad... I wish my teammates all the best and hope for them and Team Singularity to find success in the future," stated Norwi.

"Our management followed Fierce for a long time and when the time came we offered him to join us. We can say that we know him well. Norwi is a promising young player with good game statistics, who suited us in all game parameters. Fierce also recommended him as a player who will be useful in the updated roster," added Sergei "⁠MegioN⁠" Ignatko, CEO of Forze Esports.

The Russian organization still needs to recruit one more player to have a starting five before the team's debut in the upcoming DreakHack Open November 2021 qualifiers.

forZe is now:

Russia Andrey "⁠Jerry⁠" Mekhryakov
Russia Aleksandr "⁠zorte⁠" Zagodyrenko
Russia Aleksandr "⁠KENSI⁠" Gurkin
Russia Evgeny "⁠Norwi⁠" Ermolin

Russia Artem "⁠Fierce⁠" Ivanov (Coach)

2021-10-19 18:58
There is no doubt that the FL1T will enhance VP's firepower, but it is not clear how this will translate to VP in general. James will lose his "bank" and will probably kill less :)

It doesn't really work like that, he's not slave xD Fl1t didn't want to leave, forze asked for 1.5m buyout to tell navi to fuck off. I checked that and didn't find any article about selling him to navi for 500k.

perfecto was purchased for 200k, and he was far less valued than fl1t most people thought he wasnt going to be any good Not to mention "When NaVi management came to us with the idea of FL1T’s transfer we cofirmed them, that we were not interested in selling the player"

Ok, so u don't have any source. Niko was sold for 500k and at this time he was much better and was more valuable than fl1t.

??? Regardless they would have gotten a minimum of 200k which is better than the 0 they get now. That is assuming you think perfecto was higher valued than perfecto which nobody would have said, fl1t was na'vis first choice. 100% they would have paid 500k had they just negotiated but be low iq if you want

Why do u keep talking like his contract ended and VP will get him for free, as far as I now, he still has contract with forze and VP has to pay buyout. But neither forze or fl1t didn't want to make this transfer so what u even talking about XD They can still get nice amount of money cuz VP isn't a poor org and fl1t is still valuable player. They might even get more than navi were ready to pay.

People actually want them to sign GuardiaN, an old, 1.08 rating awper, which is a role they already have an insane player, instead of Norwi, 1.17 rating young rifler? Thank god some of you arent in charge of orgs.

People don't want to accept that legends like Guardian and KennyS are not what they used to be so they keep pushing for them to get chances that they don't deserve anymore.
2021-10-19 18:14
That's not the reason for it, people that have actually watched Trident, Bez zp and Singularity know something you don't. Guardian was their best player for months. Norwi was 2nd or 3rd on board then started performing better in the last 30 days. There wasn't a single player that was bottomfragging even seized is at 2-3 spot of the board sometimes.
