After some non-convincing results from their current roster, Team Empire decided it is about time for some changes.
This time the player that drew the short straw is their carry – Alexander Nix Levin. He will be replaced by the17 years old newcomer to the pro scene Aybek Naive- Tokaev.
This is what Alexander StrangeR Solomonov, Team Empire’s esports director said in regards to the transfer:
“Our last results showed us that we need changes. Unfortunately, today we are saying farewell to Nix. I feel no regrets about our choice during last transfer window: at first, everything went just as planned but later we faced difficulties again.
We could see that Nix wasn’t as comfortable in our team as we wished, and the main reason for replacement is that five players couldn’t become one united team. We could risk and continue playing without changes but management chose another way. It can be even more risky but we have more faith in it.
Currently there are many free agents available and we chose young prodigy Aybek Naive- Tokaev aka TA2000. Although he is not experienced player Aybek shows great level of play and huge will to win. Congratulations on entering Team Empire!
We made one change, but everyone understands that it won’t solve all our problems. A lot of hard work is ahead of us. We will play EPICENTER XL and qualifiers to major tournaments with our renewed roster. After that we will think about our next steps.”
Currently Naive- is 7th in the ladder rankings and is yet to prove himself on the big stage
