Cooller, stermy, Jibo and tox will be joined by Alexey "Cypher" Yanushevsky and Maciej "Av3k" Krzykowski in the FACEIT: Legends Cup.
This brings the Legends Cup to six players. Over the coming days we will bring you the final two players. The eight players will be playing in the FACEIT: Legends Cup on Sunday 16th December.
A live stream will be brought to you by FACEIT TV with commentary by Stuart "TosspoT" Saw, Daniel "ddk" Kapadia and Xavier "Zoot" Dhorne.
At the tender age of sixteen, Cypher made his first real breakthrough. The now 22 year old won the ESWC Belarus Qualifier, taking him to the ESWC Grand Finals in Paris to face the best in Quake IV. An impressive second place launched his career to become one of the most well known and best Quake players ever.
Quake IV brought him titles such as winning KODE5 Russia and ASUS Summer, as well as a second and third place at WSVG stops. With the return of Quake III, more success followed. Two ESWC victories and several ASUS tournaments were won by the young Belarussian.
Quake Live brought the greatest success for Cypher, winning tournaments such as several ASUS tournaments, the Intel Extreme Masters European Finals, QuakeCon and various DreamHacks. Now, after having represented the likes of Fnatic, Serious Gaming and Razer, Cypher plays for Millenium, both in Quake Live and ShootMania.
Av3k's career paralleled that of Cypher. Everything started with Quake IV at a very young age. He placed high in several tournaments like QuakeCon, Netgamez, WCG, ESWC and many more. He was widely considered to be one of the best players in Quake IV, alongside fellow FACEIT: Legends Cup invitee, tox.
Once Quake III came back, the Polish player's success stopped coming at such a high rate. However, several tournaments were still won, or he challenged for a top place. A DreamHack and GameGune win highlight his career, but also a third place at two ESWC events are part of his CV.
During his Quake Live career he won two major titles, DreamHack Summer 2010 and QuakeCon 2011 TDM with Salivating Monstahz. Most recently Av3k placed a shared third and fourth place at Adroits, as well as at DreamHack, after which he announced his retirement of Quake LAN tournaments. He is still part of Millenium's ShootMania team, together with Cypher and keep3r.
