xek joins Vifort

Alexander "xek" Zobkov has joined the Russian team Vifort, five days after leaving Moscow Five.

Moscow Five saw Alexander "xek" Zobkov leave the team Sunday last week, just a day later they announced the replacement had been found in Roman "hacker" Abramov.

Today the Russian team Vifort added Zobkov, the team had apparently approached him after his announcement about leaving Moscow Five, stressing they would want him to join their team.

Zobkov fills Vifort's fifth spot, taking over from Denis "seized" Kostin who went on to join fbgaming earlier this week.

Vifort now consist of:

Russia Nikolay "MNR" Kirpichev
Russia Boris "watti" Litvyakov
Russia Kirill "delm1k" Balachevcev
Russia Anton "kibaken" Kolesnikov
Russia Alexander "xek" Zobkov

The team most recently attended the online stage of TECHLABS Cup, where they managed to advance from the group stage, in front of Lions and SharkGaming, later on lost against SK Gaming in the quarter-final.

A report state that Vifort will train four times a week and plan on attending online tournaments as well as tournaments in the CIS region.

sooo woo

sk-gaming.com, Thorin posted it way before. I was just curious as all pros are screaming their over heads, this is last year of competitive CS, you too will show some disinterest. (Though like everyone i want CS to be played at competitive level indefinitely until a good game replaces it.)

Hello. Thank you for informing us that SK Gaming posted a news item before us. I will personally make sure this incident is properly dealt with, as this means our margin is now down to 99,9% when it comes to posting news before SK Gaming. Sincerely.
2012-03-16 21:29
the news on sk was posted at 7am, this one at 7pm. it was out by the time most people are online, and it's not by any means a really big news that would have to be out the minute it happens anyways. we will show some disinterest? you base that on what? so far in 2012 all events (iem kiev, iem wc) have had top notch coverage as always. lastly i'm just curious, how does nix0n owe you blogs from his personal life? out of anything you could have picked, that should be the least of your worries. good day.

2012-03-16 19:11
nice decision, unfortenatly he couldnt be in a really good shape, cause of differents playstyles from his teammetes. He's looking more ampressive in mix's freestyle, maybe Vifort give him this possibility. Looking forward to see Vifort in action! GL
2012-03-16 19:12
I hope xek gets more respcet in Vifort.

xek could easily replace evil in Virtus.pro if they were smart enough to do it ... with xek, VP can be the best team in russia and also, they can be a super good international team that will be a threat for lots of top teams.
