On the official website of the Virtus.Pro organization, the announcement of newcomers to the Dota 2 core team took place - Bakyt “Zayac” Emilzhanov and Zaur “Cooman” Shakhmurzaev replaced Vitaly “Save-” Melnik and Yegor “epileptick1d” Grigorenko in the team. It is worth noting that Bakyt received a full-fledged contract, and Zaur will speak for the team only at the qualifiers for the upcoming major.
Sergey Glamazda, General Manager of Virtus.pro:
“The major in Leipzig showed that the combat effectiveness of the previous squad did not allow us to achieve the results set for the team. If we want to be successful this season, we need to adapt, even if this is not always easy. I am pleased to welcome Bakyt and Zaur in the ranks of the Bears. Their experience and skills should help the club regain lost ground. Follow our performance on qualifications from February 9th
Note that Save ~ and epileptick1d did not leave the structure of the organization, but were only the first to stock.
