Amir “K1ra” Kassem has joined the the Helsinki REDS Dota 2 team. K1ra is an experienced player with a long history in Dota 2. Originally from Lebanon and currently living in Switzerland, K1ra is the first international player to be signed to the Helsinki REDS.

“We were looking for the best possible player to fill the vacancy in our roster,” commented Helsinki REDS general manager Christer Kasurinen. “Not the player who speaks the best Finnish. K1ra is a stable player who is very devoted to his team, and he has proven himself an excellent choice to fill our POS3 role.”

The new Helsinki REDS lineup will be making its debut this weekend at the LanTrek 2018 Dota 2 tournament in Tampere, Finland.
