Joonas “doto” Forss has decided to bench himself on HAVU after a tough individual period for the rifler and a failed attempt to qualify for the upcoming Major in Paris later this year.
The 27-year-old Finn will be replaced by his countryman Jussi “Airax” Airaksinen who is set to help the team temporarily, the organization confirm on Twitter.
If this means a permanent goodbye to HAVU it will be his second time leaving the Finnish organization as he left the team to join ENCE back in 2020.
doto has here in his second stint with the team been the in-game leader and the one calling the shots – however without any significant success. Before deciding to step back from the active roster, doto and HAVU were ranked #50 in the world. Earlier this month, HAVU also announced the departure of Jesse "zehN" Linjala and Jarkko "spargo" Rahja.
HAVU is now:
Sami "xseveN" Laasanen
Jani "Aerial" Jussila
Otto "ottoNd" Sihvo (trial)
Matias "Banjo" Kivistö (trial)
Jussi “Airax” Airaksinen (stand-in)
Joonas "doto" Forss (benched)
Mikko "xartE" Välimaa (coach)
