bubble and dream3r transfer-listed in Fiend

Fiend are set to undergo changes despite their run of impressive form as of late.

Fiend have announced that they have listed Simeon "⁠dream3r⁠" Ganev and in-game leader Kamen "⁠bubble⁠" Kostadinov for transfer. New additions to the Bulgarian lineup will be announced at a later date.

The organization has not commented on the reasons behind the move, only saying that "it's time for global changes ahead of the upcoming year." Changes in the roster come as a surprise, however, after Fiend recently peaked in 17th place of the HLTV.org ranking following an inspired run at IEM Fall, which saw the team place eighth and fall just short of a spot at PGL Major Stockholm.

bubble and dream3r step aside as Fiend are set for changes

Earlier this month, the team traveled to Budapest for the V4 Future Sports Festival without Viktor "⁠v1c7oR⁠" Dyankov, who had to skip the tournament due to a medical emergency, with SKADE's Georgi "⁠SHiPZ⁠" Grigorov stepping in for the veteran and helping the team finish in an impressive 3rd-4th place.

Ever since the team returned from the Hungarian event, bubble has been seen playing alongside SKADE, first instead of Viktor "⁠Duplicate⁠" Mitev and later standing in for Kalin "⁠KalubeR⁠" Erenditsov, while Fiend competed at the KeyDrop Cup with former SKADE player Blagoi "⁠oxygeN⁠" Dimitrov.

The following core will remain a part of Fiend's active roster:

Bulgaria Deyvid "⁠h4rn⁠" Benchev
Bulgaria Hristiyan "⁠REDSTAR⁠" Pironkov
Bulgaria Viktor "⁠v1c7oR⁠" Dyankov

That could be sick, so long as bubble is coach. If not it will be all aim which will work some games but others they will never even stand a chance. Plus I'm not sure they could get both.

Dream3r was on a great character arc too with these lot, from vac ban to redemption. Bubble I'm not sure about, can't think of another decent bulgarian igl at the moment except spellan.

because Spellan is the king of consistency they dont have sponsors,coach or other background staff also bubble literally pulled a bit of a Taz twitter.com/bubblen1CSGO/status/14519447.. so yeah most likely downhill from here

And about sponsors, just look at their shirts, does it look like they have no sponsors? Just stop making things up haha.

Thought the same thing. Everything else does not make sense. They were really close to the major and won a tournament just after, a disband now seems weird. Maybe they have some crazy IGL inc or else v1c7oR would have left too. And dream3r probably does not speak English well enough or something.
