Shara set to sign for FlipSid3 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The former KerchNET member had been tipped to join FlipSid3 on a permanent basis after playing for the team as a substitute on several occasions over the last couple of months.

A source close to FlipSid3 has told that, while Aleksandr "Shara" Gordeev has already promised to join the North American organisation, he will not do so until January 1 as the player wants to wait until his current team, Spray'n'pray, has found a replacement for him before completing a move.

He will step into the shoes of Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, who stepped down from FlipSid3's active lineup in July following a public outburst at his teammates in the wake of the side's semi-final defeat against Na`Vi at ESWC Montreal.

With a squad depleted to four players, FlipSid3 continued to field Vadim "DavCost" Vasilyev - who had already played for the team at ESL One Katowice and in the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 due to Kostyliev's ban - as a substitute, but the Russian's long-term future on the roster was always unclear.

The possibility of Vasilyev signing for FlipSid3 was ruled out earlier in the week as the 19-year-old agreed to join Team YP. Initially, Kostyliev appeared to be the close to reclaiming his spot, but the team signed Gordeev, who played alongside Vlаdyslаv "bondik" Nechyporchuk in A-Gaming back in 2013.

FlipSid3's first event with the new lineup will be the offline qualifier for the MLG Major Championship, on February 26-28, where the team will try to secure a fourth consecutive major appearance.

With Gordeev's arrival, FlipSid3 now have:

  • Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy
  • Vlаdyslаv "bondik" Nechyporchuk
  • Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin
  • Yegor "markeloff" Markelov
  • Aleksandr "Shara" Gordeev
