Team Spirit announced that Sergey "starix" Ischuk left his position in the CS:GO roster. Vladyslav "arch" Svistov will temporarily replace him as stand-in.
Starix joined Team Spirit in May, two months after losing his position as a coach for Natus Vincere.
Sadly, the team didn’t achieve any major result during his stay, and the lack of meaningful progresses is the reason for this final outcome: the team failed to qualify for any major championship in the past two seasons.
Vladyslav "arch" Svistov will act as stand-in in the upcoming matches, but the final lineup will only be announced afterward.
Team Spirit’s roster:
- Pavel "COLDYY1" Veklenko
- Dmitry "S0tF1k" Forostyanko
- Vadim "DavCost" Vasilyev
- Dmitriy "Dima" Bandurka
- Vladyslav "arch" Svistov (stand-in)
- Sergey "starix" Ischuk (benched)
