FlipSid3 Tactics: B1ad3 Becomes a Coach, WorldEdit and lollipop21k Benched
The North American esports organization FlipSid3 Tactics announced significant changes in its CIS CS:GO roster – Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin and Igor "lollipop21k" Solodkov has been benched and now are listed for transfer, while the former in-game leader Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy will become the organization’s head of CS:GO division and a full-time coach.
These changes come after a rough season for FlipSid3 Tactics. This year the team attended only one LAN-event – ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018, where they failed to qualify from the New Challengers Stage and placed 22-23rd. As the team also failed to qualify for CIS Minor Championship – London 2018, the management decided to significantly change the roster. Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin has been part of F3 since 2015, while Igor "lollipop21k" Solodkov joined the team only in April of this year. Both of these players are listed for transfer. Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy has been playing with the team since 2015, since now he’ll be responsible for the CS:GO roster and become a full-time coach. Yegor "markeloff" Markelov and Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen will remain in the main roster.
