Team-Velvet make changes to their lineup
After several changes in the Finnish COD2 scene, with zCore.Gaming changing clans to afterlife, Insignia Cadre losing motivation to play with each other, and Junk52 focussing mainly on an international line-up, another change occured in the Finnish scene. Today,Team-Velvet announced some changes concerning their main lineup. The Finnish team departed with both Holic and Frogzy, who decided to leave the team because they felt as though they didn´t really fit in.
Team-Velvet, who had previously been part of the dtekt.esports multigaming organisation mid August, decided to act swiftly in order to remain active, and officially announced the return of Krozej, who left the team a couple of months ago together with Tubrick. The two players had been playing for Venatio-Gaming. The return of Krozej will see him as a backup at the moment, according to team captain KEZ6, although he will most likely be playing with the team at the Swedish Wonderbase LAN. On top of the return of Krozej to the lineup, Team-Velvet recruited the rather unknown but talented Finnish player Azure, an old friend of both Aliz and WltR. Azure will be taking one of the spots in the main line-up for the upcoming competitions both online and at LAN.
These changes leave Team-Velvet with a steady six man line-up of:
Teemu "KEZ6" Kettunen
Matias "krozej" Mikkola
Ville "aliz" Pasanen
Petri "wltR" Mämmi
Manu "cortezZ" Tenhunen
Joni "azure" Tamminen
Statement KEZ6: "Holic and frogzy left the team, just because they didnt fit in the team. There´s no argument between me and them - they just felt their place wasn´t in our team. After testing couple of players, we decided to add azure - who was an old friend of aliz and wltr. Azure is active, skilled and plays wisely. Next to that we took back krozej as our backup and manager. Allthough not yet 100% sure, he will most likely be playing for velvet in wonderbase. But like I said, frogzy and holic left team velvet as our friends, not as our enemies".
All at eSuba.steelseries would like to wish the new lineup the best of luck.
