Team Phenomenon & Team NewEra signed by Team YP
We recently announced that Team YP was seeking to add two CS:GO teams to its ever growing roster. Today this search has come an end with the acquisition of teams Phenomenon and NewEra.
Our men’s team, Phenomenon, consists of:
Alexey “1uke” Zimin
Dmitry “Dima” Bandurka
Dmitriy “S0tF1k” Forostyanko (Captain)
Petr “krecker” Stepanov
Pavel “COLDYY1” Veklenko
Egor “fuRy^” Morin (Manager)
Nick “Certus” Poluyanov (Coach)
“We are very happy that we became part of Team YP, because they have proven themselves as sponsors in a huge industry like eSports,” said Dmitriy, Phenomenon, Team Captain, “I think that now we can fully concentrate on the game and our training with their support. I believe that together we will achieve greater results!”
One of the greatest achievements that their team has achieved in their short time together is a third place finish at UCC Season 3. They’ve been playing together for seven months and this is only the start of things to come. They were only a step away from attending Majors such as DreamHack and ESL Cologne which is something they feel that they will achieve in the future. “It’s just a question of time, especially with the support of such a huge organization like Team YP,” said Dmitriy, Phenomenon, Team Captain, “Our greatest goal is to attend major events and to be recognized as a team. Right now we are focusing on the upcoming ESL ESEA Pro League, and on winning the nearest CIS tournament, which will be held in Moscow!”
Our women’s team, NewEra, consists of:
Ksenzik Alexandra “Riley” Konstantinovna (Captain)
Mishutina Darya “dshq” Vyacheslavovna
Galichenko Kristina “BloodyElf” Ryslanovna
Gryaznih Evgeniya “Jen” Aleksandrovna
Ananikova Anna “Ant1ka” Ur’evna
Byzy Artem “gwshka” Evgen’evich (Manager)
NewEra was formed on February 2nd, 2015, as they felt that they could achieve something greater as a team. “CS for us, it is a challenge, it’s emotion, it’s an integral part of our lives,” said Ksenzik Alexandra “Riley” Konstantinovna, NewEra, Team Captain, “We are honored to work with Team YP, it’s a big step for the development of our team, this is a new motivation to get better and show the best results possible.”
Their most memorable achievement is their second place finish at the Female ESWC EU Qualifier #2. NewEra hopes to conquer the Copenhagen games as well as win ESWC.
We can’t wait to see what exciting things that the future holds for both of our CS:GO teams.
