Roster Changes

2. RayzerGM Joins as Coach

The Russian ex-Pro League player of Oleg "RayzerGM" Kuchin has joined the newly promoted Pro League team of Team Empire in a coaching role. RayzerGM played alongside the Empire players of karzheka and Shockwave in Most Wanted eSports during Season 4 of Pro League in which they won just one map before being relegated.

Since then he has competed in a number of smaller tournaments such as the Russian Championships 2018, finishing in third on E2 eSports, and CCS Season 3, finishing sixth on forZe, but will now rejoin the top tiers of Siege as a coach alongside the players of ShepparD, Shockwave, JoyStiCk, karzheka and Scyther in Team Empire

1. Chaos Releases sn0oken

After a disappointing Season 8, Chaos has released their longtime player, Lars Malte "sno0ken" Ekström. Formerly having been on Playing Ducks with the British duo of Lacky and meepeY, he (together with two other Swedes) had acrimoniously split and claimed the Season 7 Pro League spot, sending the newly born I Don't Know (now Team Secret) into the Challenger League. Since then, he has played at all three DreamHack's this year, finishing joint fifth at Austin and Valencia and joint ninth in Montreal. Chaos will be replacing sn0oken with newcomer Aleks “Vitoline” Lyapun, who is an up-and-coming Swedish player.

Vitoline is another Swedish player best known for his performance as a star player in forZe during Season 3 of the Cyber-athletic Championship Series. Outside of this Vitoline has also been crowned the King of Nordic Season 1 champion on the team "Folli's Swedes" back in March. Joining Pro League will now be a huge step up for the otherwise inexperienced player as his first real competitive experience. While Chaos is not scheduled to play in any tournaments until Pro League restarts, it is fairly likely that we'll see Vitoline debut on Chaos at DreamHack Winter at the end of this month.
