The CIS organization revealed that it is parting ways with a duo of players while announcing stand-ins for its upcoming matches
Winstrike Team appears to be undergoing some changes to its roster right on the eve of the Roster Registration deadline for the first Pro Circuit Major and Minor. The team announced that Midlaner Bogdan “Iceberg” Vasilenko and Offlaner Alexey “nongrata” Vasilyev will no longer play under the Winstrike Team banner. In order to carry on with the team’s scheduled matches, the organization introduced Nikita “Daxak” Kuzmin and Vasily “AfterLife” Shishkin of Gambit Esports as stand-ins. As of right now, it is unclear what the Winstrike Team lineup will look like moving forward, though there is the potential for the squad to turn its 2 new stand-ins into full time members, as Gambit Esports’ most recently registered roster did not include either of Daxak or AfterLife. For now though, the squad will carry on with this temporary lineup as it looks to complete its run in the ESL One Hamburg 2019 Europe Qualifier.
The roster of Winstrike Team following the departure of Iceberg and nongrata:
Zaur “Cooman” Shakhmurzaev (Carry)
Nikita “Daxak” Kuzmin (Mid)(Stand-in)
Vasily “AfterLife” Shishkin (Offlane)(Stand-in)
Ilya “Lil” Ilyuk (Support)
Alexander “Nofear” Churochkin (Support)
