forZe transfer-list Norwi and KENSI

forZe have announced on social media the removal of Evgeny "Norwi" Ermolin and Aleksandr "KENSI" Gurkin from the starting five. Both players have been placed on the transfer list.

KENSI has been with forZe since early 2021, while Norwi joined the team in the summer of that year. Since then, the Russian squad has won several online tier 2 tournaments but has not been able to succeed at big events.

The reshuffle in forZe began shortly after an unsuccessful run at the European RMR tournament, where the Andrey "Jerry" Mekhryakov-led side bested Astralis and ECSTATIC, but lost to Sprout, 1WIN and Bad News Eagles.

forZe announced the roster changes two days before the start of the ESL Challenger League Season 42 Europe playoffs. On October 18, the team will play in the upper bracket quarterfinal against a currently unknown opponent.

 forZe's current lineup:

 Andrey "⁠Jerry⁠" Mekhryakov
 Aleksandr "⁠zorte⁠" Zagodyrenko
 Alexandr "shalfey" Marenov

 Artem "⁠Fierce⁠" Ivanov (coach)

 Aleksandr "⁠KENSI⁠" Gurkin (transfer-listed)
 Evgeny "⁠Norwi⁠" Ermolin (transfer-listed)
