Alexey Kondakov, CEO Vega Squadron:
– We know these players very well. We had good relationships after we parted our ways, and we’re happy to continue from this point on. The roster looks great, and a beautiful victory on a Minor-tournament is a great sign of it. We hope that we’ll be able to help our new players to prepare for the ELEAGUE Major qualifiers the best way possible.
Dimitry «jR» Chervak:
– I am glad to return to Vega Squadron and especially glad that it happened inbefore our ELEAGUE Major qualifiers. Vega was the beginning of our professional CS:GO careers, and soon we managed to reach solid level of gameplay for our region.
And even though we changed players many times, I’m looking forward this new page in our history with Vega in a roster that is as close to the original one as it could be. CIS Minor preparations were tough and we got more united, became a family. Cheer for us and we’ll do everything to make you happy not just once!
Alexander «Lk-» Lemeshev, team manager:
– This day is special for our team. I’m glad that we once again have an opportunity to work with such a serious organization as Vega Squadron. We don’t have much time before ELEAGUE Major qualifiers, but we’ll do everything to fight our way to Atlanta and show the best results out there.
We’re already preparing for a bootcamp in Vega’s teamhouse. I think we have enough time to prepare for it considering the opportunities that we have. Our comeback to Vega is very motivating. Cheer for us as many victories are ahead!
