CIS CS:GO caster Arseniy “ceh9” Trynozhenko disclosed on his personal YouTube channel that Miikka “suNny” Kemppi, currently on the mousesports bench, is in talks to join CIS side HellRaisers.
SuNny has been the subject of multiple reports during this post-Major season. Earlier reports by Dexerto’s Jarek “DeKay” Lewis mentioned that the Finn wasfirst in talks with Cloud9 and then with ENCE, once the C9 negotiations ceased.
HellRaisers themselves still need a fifth player and suNny is one of the hottest prospects out there. The CIS side benched Bence “Deadfox” Böröcz, confirming earlier reports, and signed Sergey “lmbt” Bezhanov (as coach) and Tomáš “oskar” Šťastný. A potential signing of suNny will therefore reunite him with his old mouz team-mate oskar. Should the talks go through, the roster of HellRaisers will be:
— suNny (reportedly in talks)
— lmbt (coach)
With this new roster, HellRaisers will look to recover from an early exit at the IEM Katowice Major and months of poor performance between Katowice and their top 8 finish at FACEIT Major London. The CIS side is invited to play the StarSeries Season 7 tournament, which starts Mar. 30 — just 11 days from now. As such, they need to find their fifth, and quick.
