Team Spirit put chopper and mir on transfer list
Team Spirit announced the exclusion of Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov and Nikolay "mir" Bityukov from the main roster. Both players were benched and transfer-listed.
The last tournament for the duo who left the starting five was PGL Major Stockholm 2021, where the team failed to reach the Legends Stage. Following the elimination from the prestigious championship, the head of the organization, Nikita Chukalin, announced the reboot of the club's CS:GO project.
The vacant places in the main roster will be temporarily taken by Robert "Patsi" Isyanov, a player of the youth squad, and a 17-year-old Russian Alexandr "KaiR0N-" Anashkin, who previously played for EC Brugge and several mixes from the CIS. With the renewed roster, Team Spirit will take part in DreamHack Open November 2021, which will be held on November 10-14.
