Today, we want to present you the fifth player of the Windigo Academy in CS:GO, He is 20 years old Ukrainian pro player Artur "DarkS1DE" Kravchenko. He will replace Konstantin "hammy" Chulakov in the team, who helped us as a stand-in on the last tournaments.
DarkS1DE started his career not so long time ago but has already played in 2 organizations — PLINK and HOLLYWOOD. On December 23 in mix Team1 he won a qualifier to the WESG 2018 and will take part in this tournament with $890,000 prize pool, that will be held on March 2019. The first tournament for him in Windigo Academy will be QIWI Teamplay Season 2, where 5 our players will fight in the lower playoff bracket with GoodJob.
Comment from DarkS1DE:
From today I will play with Windigo Academy tag. I am very grateful, that I was offered this opportunity and sure, that with our teamwork we will boost the Ukrainian scene and prove ourselves in the nearest future.
Windigo Gaming CEO Maksym Bednarskyi comment:
After our team ranked third place on the WESG 2018 Ukraine, the decision was made to strengthen the line-up. I communicated with Artur for a long time and glad that we were able to agree so fast. I am sure, that this line-up can easily climb up in the world rating, and long-term tasks for us are to reach top-30 in the world rating and taking part in the big, international LAN-Tournaments. Support our team!
