With the conclusion of TOURSTAT Summer Clash, many squads, including nolpenki, did not receive payments, with some even paying to participate. ROX TEAM was amongst this pack, ending third, but as some new truths surfaced, they decided to remove their analytical coach, Vladislav “Simons” Mineyev.
“We have received a large amount of information from various sources that Simons was involved in organizing various scam tournaments. After checking all these documents, the organization found out that there is no exact evidence, but there are a lot of points that indicated it (for example, nicknames in liquipedia/discord, past in organizations like Galaxy team, etc.),” ROX’s Manager and Coach, Egor “Loyalty” Orlov, told THESPIKE.GG. “We talked about this situation and Simons denied his involvement in the scam. I told him that if this situation happens again after he signs the contract, our relationships will end.”
“After a series of new statements about GLX and Tourstat tournaments, we requested Paypal data, a personal discord account, and data on card receipts. After that, we quickly discovered that Simons was involved in the organization of the Tourstat tournament.”
Cutting ties with Simons, Loyalty has taken over coaching duties, and ROX will continue to proceed in playing in many tournaments, including trying to qualify for First Strike CIS Regional Final.
With this removal, ROX is now:
Dmitriy “Steady” Prutkov
Aleksandr “falltw” Chernukhin
Mikhail “Duno” Fokin
Vitalik “B1SK” Yemel’yanov
Vladimir “valder” Pospelov
Egor “Loyalty” Orlov (Manager/Coach)
