HellRaisers’ struggle to keep an intact roster continues. The team will make their debut today at BTS Pro Series Season 3: Europe and CIS with three stand-in players after their captain Alexander “Nix” Levin has decided to also take a break until October.
Nix’s decision to step aside for a while comes just two days after Yaroslav “Miposhka” Naidenov took a similar action, leaving the roster down two members just before the BTS Pro Series was set to kick off.
HellRaisers are starting their journey in the tournament today, September 12 with a two game series against Vikin.gg and only with Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov and Arslan “xannii” Shadjanov from their original line-up.
Ilya “Lil” Ilyuk who is currently a free agent will step in in the support four position, but more curiously, HR will be helped in the hard support role by Alexey “nongrata” Vasilyev, who leaves his offlane role to stand-in for the team. Both Lil and nongrata played briefly in the recently concluded OMEGA League Europe and CIS competition. They fought in separate teams, but both played through the Divine division.
While xanii and Funn1k stay on their midlane and offlane positions, respectively, HR will play with Team Spirit’s Anton “DyrachYO” Shkredov in the carry role.
HellRaisers roster for BTS Pro Series Season 3:
- Anton “DyrachYO” Shkredov (stand-in)
- Arslan “xannii” Shadjanov
- Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov
- Ilya “Lil” Ilyuk
- Alexey “nongrata” Vasilyev
BTS Pro Series Season 3 has a total of $50,000 prize pool to offer to the Europe and CIS division and will run starting today until 30th of the month with nine teams battling it for the title.
