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:
Aleksey "HEL1" Novikov
Ivan "F_1N" Kochugov
Alexey "LeX" Kolesnikov
Vladimir "VofkiN" Shmakov
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.
