Roman ‘Resolut1on’ Fominok will be replacing Enzo ‘Timado’ Gianoli on the VGJ.Storm roster. From the official statement by Team VGJ.Storm it looks like the decision was made earlier and the transfer came as no surprise to both sides. Part of the reason for this are issues with Enzo’s visa and citizenship procedures, due to the upcoming tournaments which will be taking place in China and Thailand Timado knew he was about to leave the team soon, but kept giving his best in the recent qualifiers, formidable professionalism for someone his age. We hope he continues his career just as driven as before. Team Director, Jack ‘KBBQ’ Chen shared:
‘This is obviously a really tough situation for a promising young player. Though we had discussed this possibility with Timado, he showed maturity beyond his years in continuing to compete to his fullest ability throughout recent qualifiers, even though he couldn’t be with the team at bootcamp. Thankfully, the difficulties of his situation will also be resolved in the next few months.
We’re of course excited that Roman will be joining the team. He’s a driven, relentless competitor who has proven himself at a highest levels time and again in different situations, and the upside is high.’
Resolut1on recently left the ranks of OG and didn’t have a new team, until now. The last tournament he participated in was DAC 2018, where he was standing in for Zaur ‘Cooman’ Shakhmurzaev with Effect. They were eliminated with a final score of 1 win and 6 losses, so you could say something was missing.
We’ll have a chance to see how the new line up of VGJ.Storm will perform in the upcoming NA qualifier for ESL One Birmingham, which is next week and later events include GESC: Thailand and MDL Changsha.
