Endpoint to compete at IEM Fall 2021 with coach as standin
Endpoint, on their Twitter account, announced that coach Allan Hender will play as a standin at the upcoming RMR tournament IEM Fall 2021 Europe. The specialist has to temporarily replace Mohammad "BOROS" Malhas, who could not obtain a visa to enter Sweden, where the championship will be held.
In their press release, Endpoint emphasized that the problems with the visa arose not due to the refusal, but because of the lack of time for paperwork.
Hender was introduced as the Endpoint coach on September 22. Previously, he worked as an analyst for Flashpoint and ESEA tournaments, and also was focusing on his own YouTube channel. It is noteworthy that the specialist has never played CS:GO at a professional level and only has the second FACEIT level.
IEM Fall 2021 Europe will take place from September 29 to October 10. Astralis, Complexity, Sinners, Heroic and Movistar Riders will be Endpoint's opponents in the group stage.
Endpoint lineup for IEM Fall 2021 Europe:
Kia "Surreal" Man
