NEW YORK (November 6th, 2017) — Today, we announce the departure of Denis “electronic” Sharipov from our Counter Strike: Global Offensive ranks. This was a truly difficult decision for us to come to terms with, as Denis has been a true talent here at FlipSid3, and is loved by players and staff alike.
This move is based in no small part on electronic’s interest to play for Natus Vincere. While we were hesitant to see him go, we are so happy to have been the place to nurture his talent and help take his game to the next level. We wish electronic and Natus Vincere the best of luck, and look forward to seeing them in competition soon.
Joining our ranks is a long standing and decorated talent in the region, Denis “seized” Kostin. On loan to us from Natus Vincere until the end of December, we are excited to see him perform here at FlipSid3. Seized has also agreed to represent FlipSid3 through the ELEAGUE major in January. We are very excited to see him bring his unique experience and abilities to FlipSid3.
“I am very grateful for the time spent together with FlipSid3. I will never forget this stage of my life. Thanks to all the fans. And I wish the team good luck in the future.” – Denis “electronic” Sharipov
“It’s nice to have opportunity to play the major quals, I’ll do my best to help these guys make it to the major and play some good cs.” – Denis “Seized” Kostin
“While we are hesitant to see a player of Electronic’s caliber go, We are very excited to have a player of seized’s caliber and experience on our roster. We have complete confidence in him because we understand CS:GO is a team game and B1ad3 is the best in incorporating someone’s talent into his system. A player this experienced will be a very good fit for us.” – Hector “FrosT” Rosario

- Andrii “B1ad3” Gorodenskyi
