S1mple to play for Team Ukraine at WESG
The new season of WESG will not run without Team Ukraine in CS:GO. The Ukrainian players from HellRaisers and Na’Vi have formed a new roster, which is slightly different from the last year’s version, and signed up for the regional online-qualifier.
Last year Team Ukraine was gathered on the initiative of Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko. Leaving Na’Vi for that moment, Zeus decided to participate in WESG and joined forces with ANGE1, bondik, arch and smike. That roster won the online-qualifier in Ukraine, taking away the only one spot for the region to EU & CIS LAN-finals, and qualified for Global Grand Finals, finishing in top-8.
Unfortunately, ANGE1, bondik and Zeus couldn’t make it to the global LAN-finals in China back then, and their places were taken by Shara, F1L1N and crush. In effect of crucial changes and insufficient training, the updated version of Team Ukraine left WESG Global Grand Finals after the group stage.
Team Ukraine got a strong upgrade in terms of the firepower on this occasion, because Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev and the best Ukrainian player Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev joined the previous year’s trio — Zeus, bondik and ANGE1. As the last time, Ukraine will start from the regional online-quals, where the fight for one spot at WESG EU Finals will be happening.
Roster of Team Ukraine for WESG 2017:
- • Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
- • Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko
- • Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow
- • Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk
- • Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev
- • Vladyslav "arch" Svistov (substitute)
