Many Changes in Ukraine

Many changes occur after one of Ukraine’s biggest teams, A-Gaming, shuts its doors.

A lineup which exploded onto the scene in 2007 after an extremely impressive third place finish at 2007's WCG grand final in Seattle. They have also had recent success in eastern European events - most recently winning a tournament in Ukraine, the SuperCup, for 2500 - and were a hair away from participating in Chengdu for the WCG Grand Finals of 2009.

The success was not enough for them to continue to play, as two players from their lineup - Juriy "strike" Tereshenko and Nikolay “weiss” Poplavskiy – have decided to retire from gaming entirely.

The remaining three have moved to other Ukrainian lineups, including Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy and  Valentin "valentiniCh" Kravchenko moving to DTS.chanix, along with the organization picking up two more in the form of Sergey "Emelikk" Lebedev from csc.arena and Serg "lmbt" Bejanov  from kerchnet.

Kerchnet has since picked up the duo - Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko and Arsenij "Esenin" Trynozhenko - released from DTS.chanix, leaving only Zurab "zu_zu" Chkadua and Konstantin "fr0st" Istomin without a home.

Former A-gaming Lineup:

  Juriy "strike" Tereshenko
  Nikolay "weiss" Poplavskiy
  Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy
  Valentin "valentiniCh" Kravchenko
  Alexey "xaoc" Kucherov

DTS.chanix Lineup:

  Egor "pops" Zinoviev
  Andrew "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy
  Valentin "valentiniCh" Kravchenko
  Sergey "Emelikk" Lebedev
  Serg "lmbt" Bejanov

Kerchnet Lineup:

  Sergey "starix" Ischuk
  Taras "craft1k" Voytenko
  Emil "Kucher" Akhundov
  Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko
  Arsenij "Esenin" Trynozhenko
