hooch confirms MYM changes

Former Virtus.pro star Dmitri "hooch" Bogdanov has confirmed to HLTV.org that he and Andrey "XomA" Mironenko have been removed from Meet Your Makers.

Reports in Russia in the past days have suggested that MYM are all set to provide a new home to Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov and Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov after a bust-up between the forZe brothers and Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov.

Bogdanov has now confirmed the stories, indicating that personal problems within MYM's ranks led to the changes the team will undergo.

"We had some conflicts in the team but I think the thing is that romjke and edik think that xek is more helpful for the team than me, also there were some conditions with sponsors and managers, who did not want to see me on the team," he told HLTV.org

"Of course it was unexpected for me that they removed me, and also I did not like the way it happened.

The former UNiTED player confirmed that ex-k23 and Virtus.pro coach Konstatin "groove" Pikiner has accepted a coaching position at MYM, which marks his return to gaming after leaving the Arbalet Cup organisation in May due to personal issues.

Questioned about his future, Bogdanov stated that he will probably continue playing, but refused to tell whether his future lies at forZe.

The new Meet Your Makers line-up looks as follows:

Russia Eduard "ed1k" Ivanov
Russia Roman "ROMJkE" Makarov
Russia Alexandr "xek" Zobkov
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Russia Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov

imo this team wont go far, i dont know if it is true the conflicts between lex and hooch but if not hooch is a good sign for Iron Will.

Is Dosia the russian version of f0rest/GeT_RiGhT/Neo/FalleN? :|
2010-10-18 23:59
why FalleN? Dosia do not play with awp
2010-10-19 00:02
fallen? jesus christ, how can u put fallen in the same list with forest, neo and get_right, he's light years behind from all these 3 players accomplished in their cs careers.. seriously, stop with this fallen worship, he's a good player, thats all ..
2010-10-19 00:05
2010-10-19 00:07
I consider FalleN a madfragger as well. But ye, I agree, he is probably too "new" to end up in the hall of fame.
2010-10-19 00:10
United States mah9 
i think its pretty much unanimously understood that fallen awps and fnx is the mad fragger, you can check the stats to back that up. and yeah, fallen definitely not in the same caliber as f0rest/neo etc...
2010-10-19 00:52
FalleN's rifle is equally amazing.
2010-10-19 04:38
f0rest/GeT_RiGhT/Neo/FalleN = good players
2010-10-19 08:23
no forest, get_right, neo=LEGENDS OF CS fallen=good player so far..
2010-10-19 13:08
I would say yes (taking into account the first three you mention). IMHO Dosia was the best Russian player before the comeback of LeX.
2010-10-19 00:11
Allright, thanks. I couldn't quite remember if it was Dosia or someone else everyone was talking about (atleast some time back) :p
2010-10-19 00:15
This is it! You said it all right jonny 8)
2010-10-19 00:52
yes, dosia & lex are great players hooch... hooch is also amazing sometimes but any russian team didn't succeed having hooch in it's squad
2010-10-19 17:14
ur right

I love how all their names end in ov. I'll give this team...2 months max before another lineup change and 3-4 months before they disband after not winning anything.
2010-10-19 00:05
Gotta agree with you, i believe they were selfish on excluding hooch, who probably was their most stable player and leader. Anyway best of luck fellas!
2010-10-19 14:16
hooch being totally sucking ass for a long time, expected
2010-10-19 00:05

n1ce now only to win )
2010-10-19 00:07
I saw some matchs and I can tell that hooch is not the player that he used to be..I guess it was because he never fit into team.. Sad.. I hope to see him playing soon ;) I personally love him *-*

Unfortunately its not gonna change anything =(
2010-10-19 00:22
dunno what xek can bring, but seriously sometimes he is good, others he is bad.. hope he try to bring his internetgame to lan & do some damage, otherwise there is much more better players that just need the chance to show their competences

They said xek is more helpful, not more skilled than hooch. People seem to think that skill > all. In CS or any other sports, there is more to it than just skill. Communication and chemistry are just as important. hooch is without a doubt better than xek, skillwise.. probably one of the best Russian players of all time. Take note that hooch hasn't had much success in the past with his previous teams. He was also the reason why LeX didn't want to play with MYM.

hooch is the most overrated russian player. He is usually pretty good in game but dont have what it takes to be professional in gaming. His attitude to gaming dont get a chance for his team to archive something internationally.
2010-10-19 14:56

MYM got new reasonable team: Eduard "ed1k" Ivanov Roman "ROMJkE" Makarov Alexandr "xek" Zobkov Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov so let's wish them a gl and hf!! :) MYM fans support me!!!! BnepeD komaHda!!!! pBuTe!!!! :D
2010-10-19 16:36
LeX was a superstar of virtus pro not hooch.probably a russian player that i hate most cuz of his bad game and attitude. good to kick him out of mym.
2010-10-19 17:55
lol if dosia keeps only going for his brother will then forget it, grow up do like qp and khrystal they dont have to be in the same team ALWAYS
2010-10-19 17:56
Singapore Nephalith 
For all you know, Dosia might prefer to share his success with his brother. He takes joy of winning something together with Fox. Besides, Fox isn't a bad player at all. He did an awesome battle with Fallen. (although he lost but it's still an amazing battle)
2010-10-19 19:12
yeah fox is good but not good enough for dosia's level or mym.ru level
2010-10-19 19:13
Singapore Nephalith 
You're maybe right. But who else is there to pick? >_< The one that can click well with the team. Only LeX is qualified to fill that spot imo.. but he's not going to leave Iron Will.
2010-10-19 19:22
they kick their best player imo p.s. romjke is fkin NOOB
2010-10-19 17:57

2010-10-19 19:41
many people on diffrent forums write: Lex!, Lex go mym plz, etc. it's a delirium i think. Alexey has his team, and 100% that he won't leave IronWill. i know that lex is a great player and captain with a great skill, in Russia there is nobody who will compete with lex in this characteristics. mym.ru needs such kind of a player, a team leader, but it's so difficult to find a person who will be team leader as Lex for example.
2010-10-19 19:58

2010-10-21 08:41
or dingo > other player in mym ?
2010-10-21 08:41
dingo is a nice player but in my view doesn't play better than any of players in mym.
