Effect Gaming has announced that Resolut1on will be joining their ranks as a stand-in amongst their ranks during the DAC 2018 Major later this week as a replacement for ILTW.
Previously, Effect has announced that they parted ways with their midplayer Igor “iLTW” Filatov due to ‘unsatisfactory results with the team recently’, with the separation coming only days before the team makes their second appearance in a 2017-2018 Pro Circuit LAN, having previously taken up 13-16th place at ESL One Katowice last month.
To fill the void left, the team contacted one of the hottest free agents — Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok, who in turn was released from OG less than 2 weeks ago.
Resolut1on, 21, already has 210 points to his name, and Effect is hoping that his experience and skill will help bring them improved results and a shot at gaining their own points.
Nonetheless, his participation seems to be only temporary in nature thus far, and no other details have been released as to a long-term replacement for iLTW or Resolut1on’s plans going forward.
The Ukraine national will take on the carry position in Effect, while Andrey “Afoninje” Afonin moves into the midlane role.
Effect Gaming roster:
- Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok (standin)
- Andrey “Afoninje” Afonin
- Vasily “AfterLife” Shishkin
- Rinat “KingR” Abdullin
- Igor “Maden” Modenov
