F_1N takes over as PARIVISION coach

Cloud9's former analyst Ivan "F_1N" Kochugov has joined PARIVISION roster as a coach. The organization officially announced this via its social media accounts.

On this occasion, the club briefly interviewed Kochugov. When asked what kind of coach he sees himself as, Ivan replied that he is ready to adapt to the team's needs and become "any coach needed". F_1N also noted the main weakness of PARIVISION's starting five – the lack of system and structure in game. The full interview with the team's coach can be found on the club's YouTube channel.

The Russian esports athlete parted ways with Cloud9 at the end of April 2024 on his own initiative, motivating his decision by the fact that he seeks to realize himself as a head coach. F_1N worked with the American club for two years.

Note that Ivan still has a ban from ESIC for using the so-called coaching bug – this does not allow him to participate in official competitions from Valve.

In May of this year, Andrey "Jerry" Mekhryakov departed PARIVISION's active Counter-Strike 2 roster – the organization benched him. According to rumors, a player from Team Spirit's academy, namely Daniil "alpha" Demin, may become a new member of the squad.

 PARIVISION are now:

 Andrey "BELCHONOKK" Yasinskiy
 Robert "Patsi" Isyanov
 Alexey "Qikert" Golubev
 Artem "ArtFr0st" Kharitonov

 Ivan "F_1N" Kochugov (coach)
