Butterfield is best known for his performances for BIG, where he became a finalist for ESL One Cologne 2018 and went on to play the FACEIT London Major 2018. In 2019, the 21-year-old sniper was sent to the reserve, after that he joined the Chaos. Due to visa problems caused by coronavirus outbreak, he was unable to continue his career in North America and since spring is in the status of a free agent. Rumors about his possible transfer to TIGER and Sprout have not been confirmed, and the signing of the contract with Movistar Riders failed due to overstated financial demands of the British.
Spinx - a 19-year-old player from Israel, who has no experience on the professional scene. Last month he played only a few matches for the mix Tikitakan. It is also worth noting that a potential newcomer c0ntact was the best player of the FACEIT Pro League in August.
