NickelBack joined Winstrike

Winstrike have announced that they've signed Alexey "NickelBack" Trofimov, thus confirming the information previously announced by insider Alexey "OverDrive" Biryukov. The 23-year-old Russian player joined the team as a captain.

Since early August, he played for Winstrike as a stand in and took part in such tournaments as Malta Vibes, Nine to Five 2 and FunSpark ULTI 2020 Qualifier. Trofimov's previous team was pro100, with which he won the DreamHack Delhi Invitational 2019 and Qi Banja Luka 2019.

Coach Winstrike Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov welcomed the newcomer and as the main goal designated a hit in Major ESL One Rio 2020.

I am very glad that we were able to sign Alexey. We have known him for a long time and played together for a while. During these few years he did a good job and grew up as a player and a personality. That's why I have no doubt that he will perfectly suit our team and lead the team to victories. At the moment we train six days a week and do our best to catch the chance to get to the Major. We may have lost a significant amount of points when a player leaves, but if there is a chance, it's worth clinging to.

The next match of the updated roaster Winstrike will take place on August 26, when it will play against AGO in the ninth week of the tournament Malta Vibes.

The current composition of Winstrike:

 Alexey "El1an" Gusev
 Vladislav "bondik" Nechiporchuk
 Aidyn "KrizzeN" Turlybekov
 Victor "Lack1" Boldyrev
 Alexey "NickelBack" Trofimov
