Aurora announce signing of deko and hooch
Aurora unveiled via their social media accounts Denis "deko" Zhukov as the team's new AWPer. Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov was also announced as a coach.
In the role of Aurora's sniper, Zhukov replaced Vladislav "lattykk" Vydrin, who had been competing for the roster since the end of last year. Now the club has benched him and put him up for transfer.
deko's previous team was 1WIN, which he represented since the beginning of 2021. However, during this time, together with his teammates, he was unable to achieve any significant results at big tournaments. According to insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov, Aurora paid over $100K for the AWPer's transfer.
Like deko, hooch previously represented 1WIN, which he coached since February of this year. At the same time, a month earlier he departed the position of the team's coach.
Today, November 8, Aurora will debut with an updated lineup. At 19:00 CET the team will face PARIVISION in the group stage of ESL Challenger League Season 46 Europe.
Aurora's current lineup is:
Viktor "Lack1" Boldyrev
Aleksandr "KENSI" Gurkin
Evgeny "Norwi" Ermolin
Ivan "SELLTER" Miroshnikov
Denis "deko" Zhukov
