AVANGAR presented new roster
Kazakhstan multi-gaming AVANGAR announced its return to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and introduced the players of its new team.
The Kazakhstani Five will be coached by Sergey "lmbt" Bejanov, former mentor of mousesports and HellRaisers, who has been a free agent since September 2019.
"This is a big step for the whole club and the players we have been watching for the last few months. The opportunity to put a hand in promoting the next generation of professionals is an incredibly valuable resource that is worth spending wisely. I want to welcome TNDKingg, howl, hidenway, kade0 and spellfull to AVANGAR Q and ask our fans to provide them with support in the nearest major to ESL One Rio.
I am also glad to see lmbt in the position of team mentor. His first victories were won even before the birth of several players in the squad, and the modern coaching experience in the CIS and Europe will be a good basis for training talented and motivated professionals.
- Yongun Kim, AVANGAR CEO
AVANGAR lost the CS:GO team in December last year when all five players and the coach moved to Virtus.pro. According to Telegram channel CYBERSLOVO, the transfer amount was about $ 1.5 million.

Mahambet "howl" Nurlybekuly.
Alan "hidenway" Dusembayev.
