One of the most powerful riflers from the CIS region has found himself a new home with the transfer of Nikolay “mir” Bityukov to Entropiq. The 26-year-old star player joins the Czech-based organization from Spirit, where he has played since September 2019.
mir is set to replace Viktor "Lack1" Boldyrev on Entropiq’s starting lineup, the organizations have confirmed. Gaming director at Entropiq, Pavel Klaban, had this to say about their new acquisition.
Nikolay is undoubtedly a great CS:GO player who we have been following for a long time. We believe that he is exactly the type of player that will give our team the necessary additional firepower and that mir will be the difference maker that will help us take that one step towards titles in many tournaments, Klaban said.
The addition of mir means that Entropiq now will field a full-Russian lineup under the leadership of in-game leader Aleksei "NickelBack" Trofimov and coach Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov. The squad has already debuted the new roster at REPUBLEAGUE Season 3 against K23, where mir ended up being the highest-rated player in his initial match.
