Edward and bondik form new project
Two legends of the CIS scene have teamed up with younger talent to form a new roster.
Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk recently announced a new roster via his Twitter account, his first team since leaving ONYX at the end of last year, also stating that he will be the IGL for the project. He teams up with fellow 1.6 legend Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev, who last played with KHAN in September 2021.
Joining them will be three younger players, 22-year-olds Yaroslav "isk" Issakov and Stanislav "fostar" Ostashevskiy who most recently played for Into the Breach and 1WIN respectively, and 20-year-old Alexey "alex666" Yarmoshchuk who was part of the now-disbanded HellRaisers squad.
bondik also mentioned that Oleksandr "Shara" Hordieyev, who most notably attended the MLG Columbus and ESL One Cologne Majors in 2016 with Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's FlipSid3 squad, will be coaching.
“It was my initiative to build something new from the scratch. I just wanna build something really long-term, that’s why we have a mix of really experienced players and talented ones” bondik said of the move.
“I know from my experience that building is really hard and everyone just needs to believe in themselves and people around you, otherwise there is no chance to achieve new heights.”
Currently the squad is searching for an organisation to represent, and there is no information regarding what tournaments or events they will participate in.
The full lineup is:
