Iron Will change duo

Russian team Iron Will have just announced new changes to the team, waving goodbye to two and bringing in a new duo.

Iron Will, who did not claim a single win at the ICSC7 finals in Kiev last month, have now announced the change of two. Prior to the event in Kiev, the team announced that both Viktor "Sally" Filimonchenko and Boris "Snoop" Podvalshikov would be brought to the event, in order to do further testing.

The veteran duo has however not been kept in the lineup, as they were today removed.
Filimonchenko and Podvalshikov were infact statistically 2 of the 3 worst players at the event. Joining up is the 19-year-old Vladimir "VofkiN" Shmakov, who you most likely would recognize from the Russian national team, and the 21-year-old Alexander "Talisman" Talismanov.

Talismanov might be a stranger to most, he has previous represented semi-pro teams such as RuSh3D and
Incredible Panic. In a talent cast at the RuSh3D LAN center he was chosen to a team of five, assigned the sniping role.

New Iron Will - Talisman, LeX, VofkiN, F_1N, HEL1

Iron Will now have:

Russia Aleksey "HEL1" Novikov
Russia Ivan "F_1N" Kochugov
Russia Alexey "LeX" Kolesnikov
Russia Vladimir "VofkiN" Shmakov
Russia Alexander "Talisman" Talismanov

Despite it being announced on the day of jokes, the Iron Will lineup has been declared as legit and is not to be considered any joke.

hopeless with these constant changes..

2011-04-01 23:21
yes, is true, but cs in russian no died. is also true that it is not the same level as before, but it is not to say that LeX suck and that the level of Russia died

2011-04-02 12:13
Hopefully this brings some stability which is something the team is lacking lately.
2011-04-01 22:14
talisman is one of the most motivated players on russian counter-strike scene.
2011-04-01 22:15
HHAHAHAHAHAHA. WHAT A FAIL DUDE. Played with him /against him around 1 year ago - he just playin for fun, nothing else, dunno about vofkin.
2011-04-01 22:21
In one year everythin' can happen.
2011-04-01 22:26
just the player can't be motivated, if he didnt play at any good team. As far as i know talis played only fun mixes with friends, where the hell he can get motivation to grow up?

2011-04-01 22:35
Hell, Lex and F_1n are next to go. Mark my words! :)
2011-04-02 11:17
Frustrating((( Snoop and Sally just needed time to find themselves and with the team .. that's all. Time and teamplay. Since they left VP CS have changed a lot and they needed to adapt on it. Im really dissapointed... I had all my expectations onto them((

whos talisman?
2011-04-01 23:07
Read last paragraph.
2011-04-01 23:09
I don't really understand why they are changing the lineup all the time. I agree that Snoop isn't as good as before and probably will not even be good anytime soon, but they are changing their lineup too much times. Hope they will success, and most important, will not give up that easily on this lineup as well.
2011-04-01 23:13
we want Sally!

2011-04-02 01:31
Player - yeah, but like a man - i don't think so
2011-04-02 10:17
say what
2011-04-02 13:44
I could said many example, but my English doesn't allow. Anyway he doing all behind the back. Not sure about this situation, but earlier it was regular: VP situation in 2006, Zeus and Edward situation when them kicked from VP in 2008 and THEY HAVE LEARNED ABOUT IT IN INTERNET! Sally kicked in VP two or three times, etc... But in interview he speaks as if are guilty all only not he
2011-04-02 16:21
good luck with the new ones :)
2011-04-02 01:36
Goodluck Talisman :-)

what the fuck? who is Talisman? TWIST, TALISMAN who next?
2011-04-02 05:59
twist is a really no name player from Astrahan. And Talis is well known player from Russian semi elite teams 88-gaming etc.
2011-04-02 10:14
HEL1 = Marilyn Manson

I like LeX, but since he dont wanna put all his time and energy on cs, he shouldnt count on good result, and blame on his teammate!! just have fun. If you really enthusiastic in CS, join M5, the only strong team in Russia.
2011-04-02 06:48
who is talisman?
2011-04-02 07:58
haha nice nickname Talisman :))
