Information[edit]

Biography[edit]

A former Counter-Strike 1.6 player and star in Kazakhstan, AdreN switched to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in 2012, and was picked up by Virtus.pro when the Russian organization switched games as well. [1]

On June 6th, 2013, he left Virtus.Pro roster due to personal issues, and was replaced by GuardiaN. [2]

He returned to the competitive scene a month later, when Edward confirmed the line-up that included AdreN, of a CIS superteam, Astana Dragons. [3] However, after a few months, the team would disband after failing to live up to expectations. [4] The team would come back on March 9th, 2014, under the HellRaisers banner this time. [5]

He stayed on HellRaisers up until early September 2014, where the team strongly hinted at a roster change which would probably be the departure of AdreN. [6] It was confirmed shortly after that he would be indeed removed from the team due to mixed results. [7]

He would then be picked up by dAT, replacing its former captain, Pr1zraK. [8] On January 15, 2015, he would leave the team and go back to HellRaisers alongside teammate flamie, as a replacement for s1mple and markeloff, with whom HellRaisers just parted ways with. [9][10]

In July 2017, he, as part of Gambit Esports, became the winner and the MVP of PGL Major Kraków 2017. In early December, his contract with Gambit ended and he became a free agent.
