OverDrive: Team Spirit Academy IGL joins B8
Team Spirit Academy's in-game leader Mykhailo "OWNER" Lymar has joined B8, insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov said on Twitter.
The source did not reveal the details of the Ukrainian player's move, while Team Spirit and B8 did not comment on the insider's post.
OWNER joined Team Spirit's academy team in July 2022. Under his leadership, the squad won several regional tier-3 tournaments and twice reached the grand final of the WePlay Academy League.
Lymar already played for B8, when he spent four months in the team at the end of last year. During this time, the Ukrainian roster did not achieve any significant success, after which OWNER started representing HellRaisers, but the club soon disbanded the lineup amid hostilities in Ukraine.
If OverDrive's insider information is officially confirmed, OWNER will round out the B8 roster for the new competitive season. Currently, the Ukrainian team has a vacant spot after parting ways with Nikita "Hkta" Reva in October 2022.
With OWNER's addition, B8 will have the following lineup:
Artem "r1nkle" Moroz
Alexey "alex666" Yarmoshchuk
Denis "amster" Liashenko
Arseniy "cptkurtka023" Derevinskiy
Mykhailo "OWNER" Lymar
