KOVA and HAVU have traded players as Joonas ”doto” Forss join’s HAVU and Samuli ”Twixie” Herrala moves on to KOVA esports. The transfer is effective immediately.
Since the beginning of HAVU, we have always relied on our CS:GO –roster which has always delivered. Although the team has shown some of their potential we all came to an agreement that a change was required to clear out the roles in game. Therefore we have swapped players with KOVA as doto transfers to us and Twixie joins KOVA. Joonas brings us valuable midround leading and a helping hand to sAw in leading / tactics. With this move we start to develop our game and aim to international tournaments. Thanks to Samuli for the past year, I hope we will cross paths once again. Also a big thank you to KOVA esports for smooth negotiations and playertransfer.-Taneli Veikkola, Partner of HAVU Gaming
Our goals in CS:GO are several years ahead and at this moment in time our visions didn’t match with Joonas. In agreement with HAVU, we ended up in a trade that will allow Joonas "doto" Forss to continue his career at HAVU and Samuli "Twixie" Herrala to join our team. As a result of the change, Petteri “Peku” Jaakkola takes on the role of in-game leader. We believe that Samuli will further enhance our team's in-game synergies, and we believe this will be reflected in the results this fall. Thanks to Joonas for the journey so far, we believe you will go a long way in your career. Thanks also to HAVU Gaming for successful negotiations.- Timo Tarvainen, General Manager of KOVA Esports
