SexyBamboe replaces Vigoss in aL

posted by Sun_Tzu,
eu Absolute Legends have just announced the departure of ru Ivan 'Vigoss' Shinkarev, who had been absent from quite a few recent games. In his place they are picking up former de Team Zero offlaner nl Alaan 'Bamboe' Faraj.

'Bamboe' was first seen playing for Absolute Legends as a stand-in against us Dignitas in the opening round of ROOT AVerMedia Dota 2 Cup.

Regarding his new team and parting way with his old team, Bamboe had this to say:
It's sad to have to leave some of the best team-mates and friends I've worked with and I truly wish them all the best, but sometimes you have to make changes as new oppurtunities arise.

I'll be moving to aL and reunite with my former teammate comewithme, where i hope to have a long lasting coalition. Shoutout to my new sponsors Razer,, AbsoluteEnergy, Orcbite, Specialtech and BigPoint.

Absolute Legends manager eg Islam 'Samo' Kenawy also expanded on the reasoning for dropping Vigoss:
It's quite ordinary to say that I'm saddened by a change in our line-up but this time I'm actually glad. After working with Vigoss for this small period of maybe 2 months, I found him not that easy to deal with. We have provided him with a PC capable of streaming (Supposedly loaned) so he can stream benefiting the both of us but he rarely did so. However, that's just the crust of the problems.

I spectate and listen to just about every match our team plays be it official or a scrim and his level of communication during the matches, despite being perfectly capable of speaking English, is zero. The lack of communication combined with the lack of professionalism has forced us to replace him for the sake of the team. The reason I'm being a bit too straightforward is because I believe people deserve to know why we might replace players, especially when it's the second time in 2 months.
I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours, maybe he only has such issues with English speaking teams.

With this move, the future of Team Zero seems highly precarious, as they are forced to look to replace another player within a week after nl WehSing 'SingSing' Yuen left the team. If Zero are to continue, a likely candidate would be their long time stand-in, de Pascal 'paS' Lohmeier. If so, Team Zero would now be an all german team.

Edit: As predicted, Team Zero manager de Florian 'PaisY' Schmedes just confirmed on his twitter account that the replacement for Bamboe will be paS.
