Not much is known about the roster, as the team failed to make it's mark on the international scene. The announcement was made on the the vk.ru page of the Team Spirit manager, Alexey 'OverDrive' Biryukov whom wrote:
"It was a long and interesting process. I have my own method of selecting a team, I need a distance, I need to understand not the current level of the player, but his potential.
This composition is my business card, its successes and failures will be primarily associated with me, so I think 10 times over each decision.
As a result, I gathered guys who are burning with the game, who still have shortcomings and mistakes, but they try every day to fix and develop everything.
In general, I am satisfied and confident in the good growth of players, both individually and in team terms."
