HellRaisers is a CIS-based esports organization. Originally founded from the ashes of the former Astana Dragons team, they currently host teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and Hearthstone.

History[edit]

HellRaisers was founded just prior to ESL Major Series One: Katowice 2014 after the team previously known as Astana Dragons parted ways with their organization based in Kazakhstan after a disappointing string of tournaments representing the organization. Team manager Sergey "lmbt" Bezhanov gave the following statement to HLTV regarding the move:

"We regret to inform that we have left the Astana Dragons project. The decision was mutual. We are very grateful for the support that the organization gave us. Sometimes we have had to face bitter experiences, but the team have decided to stay together, no matter what. This is the beginning of something new. You will see us in 2014 with the same lineup, but with a different approach and with a new organization. Stay tuned..."

The team remained sponsorless for around three months where they used the tag ASD in online cups and events but they seemed inactive to onlookers as they did not participate in any LAN events due to a lack of funding. When EMS One, held in Katowice, was announced the team declared that they would be attending as a new eSports organisation named HellRaisers.
