HellRaisers have completed the signing of Abay ‘Hobbit’ Khasenov from Gambit Gaming. He has replaced Vladyslav ‘bondik’ Nechyporchuk who announced his free agency earlier this week.
Hobbit emerged onto the global Counter-Strike scene when Gambit signed him on loan from Kazakh team Tengri at the end of 2016. With Gambit, Hobbit won multiple tournaments including the PGL Krakow Major in July 2017.
HellRaisers CEO Aleksey Kucherov said: “HObbit is a very valuable player, and he has proven that many times at huge global events. We’re glad that he’s joined us and we’re sure that Abay will bring a lot to the team, which will positively affect the quality of our play.”
The new-look HellRaisers team will be in action on LAN at SuperNova Malta.
