The representatives of Vega Squadron esports club announced that Akbar «SoNNeikO» Butaev left the organization. After the end of qualifiers to The Kiev Major 2017, the esportsman took a break in his playing career and decided to become a substitute. The management gathered a new roster, but there was no place for Akbar there.
Georgy Faleev, sports director of Vega Squadron, comments the situation:
«Just after the end of qualifiers to The Kiev Major, Akbar took a break for several weeks and almost did not participate in the formation of a new roster taking the place of a substitute player. Some time later, we’ve understood that we would not change a roster, and for such a player as SoNNeikO being a substitute is too easy and boring. He has already found a new team, and the official transfer will be announced soon. I want to say thanks to Akbar for the months that he’s spent with Vega Squadron and for the work that he’s done, and to wish him good luck in a new team.»
For the time spent under Vega Squadron tag, Akbar managed to help the team to win several qualifiers, to win Royal Arena #2 and take the second place on WellPlay Invitational #7.
Vega Squadron roster:
Ilya «ALOHADANCE» Korobkin
Sergey «G» Bragin
Vasily «AfterLife» Shishkin
Airat «Silent» Gaziev
Semion «CemaTheSlayer» Krivulya
