Flipsid3 Tactics, a premier Esports organization, has signed Jan “wayLander” Rahkonen. wayLander has competed as a substitute with the departure of Vladyslav “bondik” Nechyporchuk for about two months, but now that Flipsid3 is competing in Eleague’s Group E, the team requires a solidified roster moving forward.
On June 20th, Flipsid3 Tactics struck a deal with Gambit to buyout Jan “WayLander” Rahkonen from his contract. In place for WayLander, Gambit will be competing in Eleague with Ivan “Spaze” Obrezhan. The team has been practicing with WayLander consistently, and wanted to acquire him for some time, but haven’t had the right opportunity. With their games occurring this week for Eleague, it made sense to solidify their roster for their upcoming games against Na’Vi, Mousesports, and Echo Fox in Eleague.
Dana “Wuvs” Kawar, Chief Operating Officer Flipsid3 Tactics:
“We are glad to have reached an agreement with Gambit over WayLander, and are excited to move forward with a full roster. A special thank you as well to Gambit for allowing us to practice and compete full time with WayLander throughout the negotiation process.” – Dana ‘wuvs’ Kawar – COO FlipSid3 Tactics
Konstatin “Groove” Pikiner, CEO Gambit Esports:
“We are happy to finalize this deal with FlipSid3 Tactics, since wayLander was their first choice and it was Jan’s first priority to become a part of this team as well. We are pleased with the fact that both Gambit and FlipSid3 have successfully integrated spaze and wayLander respectively and will participate in two premier tournaments, ELEAGUE and ESL One Cologne Major, in the nearest future.” – Konstantin “groove” Pikiner, CEO Gambit eSports
