MK have handed a trial to youngster Branislav “BrN” Panov, the Bulgarian team have told HLTV.org.

The 18-year-old will replace Kamen “bubble” Kostadinov, who announced at the start of the month that he was leaving the team after losing faith that it could compete on a top level again.

BrN is MK’s newest fifth player

A former member of Above the Rest and TTFU, Branislav“BrN” Panov attended OMEN by HP ComicCon earlier this month with dSc. He boasted his team’s highest Rating (1.07) in the semi-final loss against MK, seemingly catchingEmiliyan “spyleadeR” Dimitrov’s eye.

“We thought a lot about who could replace bubble, and, in the end, we decided to give a chance to a young talent,” spyleadeR told HLTV.org.

“I think new blood will help the team. He is a very talented player, and I believe he will fit in well.”

The Bulgarian team are currently competing in HellCase Cup 6, in which they currently sit third in Group B, with two victories from four matches. They are also due to take part in the ESEA Season 26 Mountain Dew League, kicking off on September 24.

MK’s roster now looks as follows:

Bulgaria Emiliyan “spyleadeR” Dimitrov
Bulgaria Simeon “dream3r” Ganev
Bulgaria Viktor “v1c7oR” Dyankov
Bulgaria Hristian “shEMETA” Spasov
