CS:GO News: Vega Squadron add Seized and Scoobyxie
Vega Squadron officially announced that the team has added Denis “seized” Kostin and Alexander “scoobyxie” Marynych to their Counterstrike: Global Offensive roster.
CIS organization Vega Squadron has announced the signings of Denis “seized” Kostin and Alexander “scoobyxie” Marynych to their Counterstrike: Global Offensive roster today. The move comes after a hectic early 2019 for the team. Leonid “chopper” Vishnyakov left the team in late February. Two other Vega Squadron players, Pavel “hutji” Lashkov and Anton “tonyblack” Kolesnikov were designated inactive on March 30th.
Today is not the day for jokes but for real business!

Vega Squadron seems to be in the middle of a rebuilding process. Since the squad failed to make it to the IEM Katowice Major, the team has seen the departure of almost fifty percent of its roster. In the Katowice qualifiers, Vega Squadron dropped series to NiP, Vitality, and G2 Esports.
With the addition of seized and scoobyxie, the Vega Squadron roster is as follows:
Dmitriy “ chopper” Chervak
Igor “crush” Shevchenko
Denis “seized” Kostin
Alexander “scoobyxie” Marynych
Artem “Fierce” Ivanov (Coach)
