Spirit put sdy on the transfer list

The Russian organization is ready to overhaul its CS:GO team going into the new year.

Following in the path of Nikolay "⁠mir⁠" Bityukov and Leonid "⁠chopper⁠" Vishnyakov, who were put on the transfer list ahead of DreamHack Open November, Viktor "⁠sdy⁠" Orudzhev has now joined them on the bench as the most recent player from the Russian organization to be put on the transfer list.

sdy is set to leave Spirit after nearly four years in the organization

The benching of the core of Spirit means the Russian organization will now seek to fully rebuild their Counter-Strike division, where they still have the likes of Boris "⁠magixx⁠" Vorobiev and Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov under contract.

During his tenure in Spirit, which goes back to 2018, sdy helped the team win several lower tier cups, as well as the first CIS Regional Major Ranking tournament, ESL One: Road to Rio - CIS and DreamHack Open January. He also helped the team reach several finals and deep runs at events like DreamHack Open November 2020 and IEM Katowice 2021.

He also played in Big Events, at StarSeries i-League Season 7 and IEM Cologne 2021, and has three Majors' Challengers Stages under his belt: FACEIT Major London, IEM Katowice 2019 and the recently concluded PGL Major Stockholm.

sdy's listing in the market comes after a failed run at DreamHack Open November, where the team played with Robert "⁠Patsi⁠" Isyanov and Aleksandr "⁠KaiR0N-⁠" Anashkin but weren't able to win a single match in their last place finish.

The 24-year-old, who states he decided to part ways with the team after not being able to see eye to eye with the organization in regards to the future, will play his last event with the Spirit jersey at the Red Bull Flick 2vs2 tournament in Helsinki, after which he is open to join other teams, including a move to an international squad based in Europe.

Spirit's roster going into the shuffle is:

Russia Boris "⁠magixx⁠" Vorobiev
Russia Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov

Russia Nikolay "⁠Certus⁠" Poluyanov (coach)

Russia Nikolay "⁠mir⁠" Bityukov (transfer-listed)
Russia Leonid "⁠chopper⁠" Vishnyakov (transfer-listed)
Ukraine Viktor "⁠sdy⁠" Orudzhev (transfer-listed)

This team had so much potential at the beginning of the year, winning DreamHack January and reaching semi-finals of IEM Katowice was the best proof of it. Unfortunately, they threw many opportunities away this year and the mentality was their biggest nightmare. Sadge. Good luck sdy regardless!

Bro spirit org is fucking retard, they somehow got their ass full of cash but still acting like a garage company. This team used to be a dogshit tier3 CIS punchbag and nowdays they look like a solid tier 2 that could have become tier 1 if they had an better coach and staff. Spirit CEO is a fucking clown for not realizing this and if i were a Spirit fan i would riot on Twitter until they reverted the roster changes

I never really cared about them, but it's sad how fucking awful the org is, that team had lots of potential and they went to waste. It's insane how bad it ended considering that they got to semis in Katowice.

How hooch said on HLTV Confirmed. You can see in their vlogs how they are talking about the upcoming match and opponent. Too many ifs, if that... if that... etc. Wrong mentality and attitude was the weakest factor of Spirit. I think they should kick Certus and get an other coach.

I don't know about Chopper. I think he is a decent igl but he seems somehat stubborn. Best example being that he only knows how to go to B site as T in overpass. Might be coaches fault as well.

1 reply
Thats sad. But makes sense actually considering the results.
2021-11-12 21:20
I think Sanji's the better player personally, I just don't see a team with Chopper as IGL getting anywhere. He's really fallen off and I don't think it's just an aim issue. For 6 months at the end of his run with Spirit he made 0 progress on Inferno. Practically no changes, no innovation, things clearly weren't working and he just kept the same broken system basically guaranteeing you were playing every BO3 down 1-0 since Inferno was an insta-loss. I'd rather gamble with someone who's an unknown quantity. Look at someone like Apex, nobody really thought he'd ever be an IGL and here we are.
2021-11-12 21:20
2 replies
I've heard somewhere that sanji was kicked because of his careless attitude to work Idk if it's true, but if so, then taking him to your team, and even for such a responsible role, is a bad idea
2021-11-12 21:25
1 reply
No source so who knows, either way I'd rather anything then Chopper personally. If not Sanji I'd rather try SDY at IGL. I'd be fine with Chopper as a temporary thing but he isn't a long term solution

ex-Spirit should stick together, different coach would make chopper a better IGL imo (however he's been extremely bad individually anyways). TS management is so fucking dumb. Certus was the main reason why Spirit stagnated.

I think he's the CEO's sidekick, I can't explain 5-plus years of stagnation in any other way

not a fan of this honestly. Chopper and Mir I can see because of the ability to fill their roles easy but sdy was honestly the backbone of the roster

gl It would be interesting to see him in an international team

Not a fan of this move... I get that changes are needed but a complete roster overhaul I think was unnecessary. Best of luck to the future Team Spirit players and to the ex-Team Spirit players.
