MAJ3R returns to Eternal Fire
Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli returns to the team after transitioning to VALORANT less than a month ago.
Eternal Fire have announced that they are welcoming back MAJ3R to the team after parting ways with the 31-year-old at the end of October. The move looks to be the final of a myriad of changes in the Turkish lineup after their dismal performance at the RMR, where they failed to qualify for the IEM Rio Major.
The move also brought some role changes in the Turkish superteam with MAJ3R retaking the IGL role, while Ömer "imoRR" Karataş will return to the main sniper role that he fulfilled during his time in Demise back in 2019.
The rebuild started in October, when Eternal Fire parted ways with MAJ3R and promoted Yasin "xfl0ud" Koç from the bench to take his spot on the roster, with imoRR inheriting the IGL duties. Later in the same month, it was announced that Ahmet "paz" Karahoca and coach Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran would also depart the team after just three months.
Özgür "woxic" Eker also announced his intention to step down from the team at the start of November, citing his wish to continue his career in an international team as the main reason for his decision. With the squad depleted to just three members, the organization re-signed Buğra "Calyx" Arkın, who was previously removed from the team in July, with new head coach Sezgin "Fabre" Kalaycı joining soon after the 24-year-old.
Eternal Fire's roster is now:
Sezgin "Fabre" Kalaycı (coach)
Özgür "woxic" Eker (inactive)
