HellRaisers Zero goes inactive, replaced by FejtZ

HellRaisers announced that Patrik "Zero" Žúdel will step down from the active roster, and will be substituted by Kristjan "FejtZ" Allsaar as stand-in.

Zero explained that the recent negative results in multiple qualifiers hurt his confidence, and in turn also his gameplay. The coach, Ivan "Johnta" Shevtsov, agreed that the team had to play a huge number of games in the past months, thus a pause will be very beneficial for him.

Kristjan "FejtZ" Allsaar left 5Power a week ago, and publicly started looking for offers. Playing for HellRaiser as stan-in will put an end to his journey in China.

Zero joined the organization on October 10th, 2016, and over time contributed to the team's goals with a solid performance. In the past two months HR wasn’t able to qualify for many tournaments, such as EU Minor Championship 2018, EPICENTER 2017, and StarLadder I-League Invitational S2.

Patrik thanked all the fans supporting him, and mentioned he will provide a longer explanation on Twitter in the near future.

After failing in too many qualifiers, it seemed like something needed to change, and that became me. As CS is a game of confidence, my confidence was decreasing exponentially for the past month and that affected my game a lot.

There are multiple reasons for it - small changes in roles, graduation year of school and more personal things, but it feels like a reset will help me a lot.

I will probably add a longer comment on Twitter in the future. Thanks for all the support and kind words and I wish the current roster good luck!

The team has had a tight schedule with lots of games over the last two months. We tried many things differently, adapted game roles and tried to understand what we could achieve with this roster. Some things worked, some didn’t.

The results of the last games made us think about some stuff and after a long discussion it was decided to let Zero take a rest in order for both parties to rethink about game stuff. At the moment we’re trying FejtZ on Zero’s role and he’ll play the next official matches with us
