  • Virtus.pro with new line-up Russia Virtus.pro finalized the line-up of its DotA 2 division.

    After the poor result at USA The International 2014, team decided to part ways with Russia NS, Russia Illidan and Russia ARS-ART. Now remaining two players Russia JotM and Russia God have been accompanied with former Russia RoX.KIS players - Russia yol, Russia Sedoy and Russia BzzlsPerfect.

    Manager of the team Russia Diver233 made a statement:
    "We overviewed a lot variations of our DotA 2 line-up. Unfortunately, many CIS DotA 2 player are preferring to play with their friends instead paying attention to professional aspect. One player would like to play with player X and without Y and Z. Same time X player won't play without Y etc.. According to this, we made a line-up which we didn't plan in the beginning, but behaviour of some players  forced us to do so. We took former RoX.KIS players despite to fact that their results are not good against top opponents, but there is already some progress. Guys are spending a lot of time for practicing, analyzing and researching. The main point is that they want to work to achieve results. There is a good chemistry between players and at this moment the line-up looks promising."
