disturbed steps down as HAVU's coach

The 29-year-old will remain in HAVU as a partner and will continue to hold his position as a board member in the organization.

HAVU has announced that Taneli "⁠disturbed⁠" Veikkola will no longer be the team's coach, a position he held for over two years after he was announced in October 2019.

The former player turned coach will now return to back office duties as a stakeholder in HAVU, one of which will be to help find the right candidate to coach the team moving foward.

disturbed remains linked to HAVU despite stepping down as coach

During disturbed's tenure HAVU reached their peak in early 2021, hitting the 14th spot in the world ranking after former ENCE players Jani "⁠Aerial⁠" Jussila and Sami "⁠xseveN⁠" Laasanen linked up with HAVU's longtime members Olli "⁠sLowi⁠" Pitkänen and Lasse "⁠ZOREE⁠" Uronen.

The rest of the year went downhill, however, ending up in star AWPer ZOREE and Jemi "⁠jemi⁠" Mäkinen removed from the squad to make way for Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo and Joona "⁠Sm1llee⁠" Holmström, but the incoming duo have been unable to reignite HAVU in 2022 as they bottomed out below the top 100 in the ranking, recently bouncing back to 89th place.

"As of May 31st, I’ve stepped down as the head coach of HAVU," disturbed says. "The decision has been hanging around me for a while now as I’ve failed to produce results I or HAVU wanted. Past few months have been really hard for me as I couldn’t fix the mistakes we were making as a team or individually.

"This team needs a fresh start after a really challenging first half of the year and I think a new approach to the game is also needed. I hope this move unlocks the potential this team has and gets them back on the grind."

HAVU is now actively searching for disturbed's replacement in the coaching department to rebuild the team's identity in the server, according to HAVU's CEO, Lasse Salminen.

HAVU is currently:

Finland Jani "⁠Aerial⁠" Jussila
Finland Sami "⁠xseveN⁠" Laasanen
Finland Olli "⁠sLowi⁠" Pitkänen
Finland Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo
Finland Joona "⁠Sm1llee⁠" Holmström

Well, we came here, started the match with a great feeling. Taneli threw the wrong smoke and we lost the pistol round, and the following up eco rounds. I think it was Taneli who threw the wrong smoke and in 3-1 situation me and Taneli were in a 1v2, Taneli threw the wrong smoke, then i went into the vent with the bomb, died there, Taneli followed and died as well, we lost the round and then we just started losing round after round

i agree with you tbh, he should go there but i feel like more changes should come if twista goes there, smillee otto is good, xseven to support role, then get real igl and someone like welho or stuff, need new blood. i just dont know how strong relationship allu and twista have in temp and if temp is close to finding org etc.

my personal favorite is samppa, he seems to call really good, like really really good. He calls mid rounds like navi honestly, watch him call in like inferno.

2022-06-01 05:45
Twista and allu already made once "bunch of nobodies" in to something and this HAVUs lineup just ain´t going anywhere even if they would have zonic, B1ad3 and twista as coaches.
2022-05-31 15:53

I must respectfully disagree, temp is so different from 2018 ENCE allu is way past his prime, ZOREE is in the military and getting older as well, oopee and Jerppa are ok players and arvid doesn't seem to be improving at all And in my opinion all HAVU is lacking is tactical depth and confidence, which both could be brought in by changing the coach (especially if the they have coached a top2 team in the past)
