Cypher and Collar from Team Anox, undeniably two of their most well known players from Quake have been benched. The players will remain as recruits of Anox, however they will be on the bench as Nesh and Arty, two newcomers will be taking their place.
Their performances recently were definitely not upto par. They came 13-16th without a single map win againstn Luminosity, Misfits or Rogue.
Team Captain Anak :
“The last two months were not successful enough for our team. The team was lacking synergy and we never managed to reach our full potential. So together we came to the decision to change the line up. Cypher and Cooller have transferred to the reserve, and in their place come two talented and ambitious players: German ‘Nesh’ Kobrin and Arthur ‘Arty’ Tishchenko.”
The roster shakeup means Anak switch from his traditional flex role to fill Cooller’s position on Lucio and maincall for the team. Arty steps in as flex and Nesh replaces Cypher in the sword swinging DPS slot.
“After Evoks I was a free agent pretty much and used the time to look for offers.
Well, since I used to play with half of the ANOX team in TF2, I was already an option for them since I put a lot of time into Overwatch and play ranked with them a lot. So about 1-2 weeks before ELEAGUE started they wanted to trial me, which happened yesterday where we played for the first time together in the dreamhack qualifiers.
So this offer was the one I prefered over anything else, since I played with them before and I still enjoy playing the game with them.
I play a lot of heroes – mainly Genji, Reaper, Mei , Widowmaker , McCree and Tracer. I’m very flexible, could play Ana for example as well, but that is not needed for now.”
The ANOX roster is now:
- Normunds “sharyk” Faterins (Tank)
- Ruben “Rubikon” Zurabyan (Support)
- Kiryl “Anak” Nikalayenka (Support)
- Artem “kensi” Budiak (DPS)
- German “Nesh” Kobrin (DPS)
- Arthur “Arty” Tishchenko (Flex)
