Team Spirit announces upcoming roster changes
Russian multi-gaming organization Team Spirit announced the beginning of "global changes" in the structure of CS:GO. According to CEO Nikita Chukalin, the changes will both affect the game and coaching staff.
Nikita Chukalin, Team Spirit CEO:
Two substitutions, which were made after the madger in Katowice, obviously did not give the desired result. In the next month, the whole structure of CS:GO in our organization is waiting for global reform, primarily it will affect directly the composition. We have concrete plans to expand the coaching staff and introduce other elements to improve the team's performance. After this period, we will return with a series of announcements that are stronger and more prepared for the new season. I think we will be able to give the CIS scene some new, loud names.
The current composition of Team Spirit has been formed at the beginning of March this year, when Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov and Artem "iDISBALANCE" Egorov replaced Dmitry "Dima" Bandurka and Vadim "DavCost" Vasiliev. During the past qualifiers for major tournaments, including CIS Minor - Berlin 2019, BLAST Moscow 2019 - CIS Play-in Qualifier and EPL S9 Europe Relegation, the team was unable to achieve significant results.

Dmitry "S0tF1k" Forostyanko

Victor "somedieyoung" Orudzhev
Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov
