MeTTpuM reveals reason behind Pure’s departure
Entity’s head coach, Daniil "MeTTpuM" Gilev recently commented on a number of issues related to the team ranging from roster changes to Daniel “Stormstormer” Schoetzau’s absence during the team’s new roster debut at the BetBoom Xmas Show on
MeTTpuM started off by discussing the departure of former carry Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko, as the player recently joined BetBoom Team for the upcoming season. While the coach stated that it was not easy to part ways with Pure, the decision was made following multiple discussions with the player.
“We parted ways with Pure, and it wasn't easy. Ivan is a top-tier player, but some factors made it hard to cooperate in that TI lineup. We talked a lot and discussed it to find the right solution. There were a lot of nerves during this period. On the bright side, we faced the break up together, more or less openly sharing about how we saw our future. Maybe it sounds unthinkable to a regular viewer, but from my experience, roster changes (both kicks and leaves) often happen in the shadows, with many discussions held behind someone's back. But we faced this problem as a team, including Pure.”
He then went on to explain the recent addition of Alimzhan "Watson" Islambekov as Pure’s replacement, saying that he fit the team’s bill by a “sum of various criterias”. He also addressed the rumors surrounding Vladislav “Kataomi” Semenov and Tobias “Tobi” Buchner, as the duo were rumored to be leaving the team during the off-season.
“If Kataomi was indeed invited to BetBoom, the news regarding Tobi was just a meme. Some journalists opened the leaderboards and saw that one of Tobi's three accounts was marked with "lft3." He had that prefix for three years already. Don't blindly trust the rumors, although sometimes they have a reason behind them.”
He then ended the discussion by providing the main behind Stormstormer’s absence during the team’s new roster debut at the BetBoom Xmas Show, saying that the player went on pre-agreed vacation before the event however he also stated that Stormstormer has recently returned and is preparing for the upcoming season with the team.
