Hellraiser released their roster
HellRaisers announced the decision to dismiss the current CS:GO squad: Kirill "ANGE1" Karasev and Igor "crush" Shevchenko got the status of free agents, while the other three players were moved to the inactivity. The published statement specifies that the organization is not leaving the discipline and will soon present a new team.
CEO Alex “Magician” Slabukhin’s comment:
“Our current CS:GO roster was formed half a year ago, and there’s been a lot since then. Unfortunately, we weren’t always able to give you the best result, even though we did try our best to achieve that. As I said before, we aren’t going to leave CS:GO and will soon make a video explaining the current roster situation and our plans.
Today we’re saying goodbye to the legend, Kirill “ANGE1” Karasiow. First and foremost, we want to thank him for his incredible contribution to the organization. It was the roster led by ANGE1 with which HR started its path in esports. We’ve made some great memories together which we’ll definitely look back on with a smile in the future. And on my own behalf I want to thank you for the opportunity to have worked with you all these years. Press “F”.
Reforming our CS:GO team was a necessary measure, and we’ll announce a new roster very soon. I know that despite our recent results, there are still those who support and believe in us, and we do appreciate you guys being with us no matter what!“
ANGE1 has been the permanent captain of HellRaisers for six years. Together with him, the team won several regional and international LAN tournaments, as well as entered the top 8 at FACEIT Major 2018. The 30-year-old player has already tweeted that he intends to continue his career and is ready to consider any offers.
In September last year, HellRaisers made a radical reshuffle in the squad, signing three new players. During this period, the team did not achieve significant results, and at the recent qualification for CIS Minor, which received a direct invite, took last place, losing to Winstrike and Espada.
