However Flipside were ready to take it in their stride and they strove forward to scout new talent and they had Waylander play for the CIS side on a regular basis.
Waylander attended two events with Flipside and despite having a 7-8 finish in some tournaments, Flipside were very good in their scorelines against some of the best teams in the world. Recently they qualified for next $1 million CSGO Major; ESL One Cologne 2016.
