A month after he joined Winstrike, coach Arsenij “ArsZeeqq” Usov is ready to enter the battle with the line-up he single-handedly picked.
ArsZeeqq left Virtus.pro immediately after TI9 and joined Winstrike mid-October. Upon his arrival at the team, Winstrike released their full roster and allowed their new coach to build something new for them. With the new team, the CIS organization has also undergone a full rebrand and will start their journey to TI10 today, in the CIS open qualifiers for DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major and the WePlay! Bukovel Minor.
Winstrike’s new team is built with well-established players from the CIS scene, some with major championships under their belt, some with many years of grind, and an upcoming mid laner who is given now the chance to shine, after playing for Nemiga Gaming just for a few months earlier this year.
Winstrike roster from position 1 to 5:
- Nikita ‘Daxak’ Kuzmin
- Maxim ‘mellojul’ Pnev
- Vasily ‘AfterLife’ Shishkin
- Ilya ‘ALOHADANCE’ Korobkin
- Vladimir ‘RodjER’ Nikoghosyan
- coach: Arsenij “ArsZeeqq” Usov
“The first thing that caught my eye when forming a new line-up – the process itself was much more complicated than literally a couple of years ago. But I am glad that all the difficulties are behind us and we are finally ready to officially introduce the updated roster,” said team coach ArsZeeqq in the official press release.
Two slots are up for grabs in the CIS open qualifiers and 68 teams have already signed up for battle. The games start today, November 28, at 18:00 EET.
