Today, it has become known on the official HellRaisers website that Zero had become inactive and FejtZ will play instead of him.
Patrik «Zero» Zudel joined the team on April 10, 2017. Since then, the second place at DreamHack Tours 2017 has become the biggest achievement of the team. Now, Zero goes inactive and Kristjan «FejtZ» Allsaar will hold his position as a stand-in.
A bad performance of the team over the recent time was called as a reason for such decision.
Patrik «Zero» Zudel commented the situation in the following way:
«After failing in too many qualifiers, it seemed like something needed to change, and that became me. As CS is a game of confidence, my confidence was decreasing exponentially for the past month and that affected my game a lot. There are multiple reasons for it - small changes in roles, graduation year of school and more personal things, but it feels like a reset will help me a lot. I will probably add a longer comment on Twitter in the future. Thanks for all the support and kind words and I wish the current roster good luck!»
Also, the team’s coach Ivan «Johnta» Shevtsov made his comment:
«The team has had a tight schedule with lots of games over the last two months. We tried many things differently, adapted game roles and tried to understand what we could achieve with this roster. Some things worked, some didn't.
The results of the last games made us think about some stuff and, after a long discussion, it was decided to let ZeRo take a rest in order for both parties to rethink about game stuff. At the moment we're trying FejtZ in Zero's role and he'll play the next official matches with us.»
The HellRaisers roster looks as follows now:
Kirill «ANGE1» Karasiow
Bence «DeadFox» Böröcz

Issa «ISSAA» Murad (stand-in)
Kristjan «FejtZ» Allsaar (stand-in)
