Virtus.pro has announced that Zaur "Cooman" Shakhmurzaev will not be competing with the team at One Los Angeles 2020 due to difficulties securing a visa. Igor "iLTW" Filatov of Team Spirit will act as his stand-in during the event.
In a release, Virtus.pro general manager, Sergey Glamazda, stated that despite their best efforts, Cooman was refused a visa to the US. Given the amount of time left before the Major begins, the team decided to secure a replacement instead. Here is the Virtus.pro lineup for ESL One Los Angeles 2020:
Igor “iLTW” Filatov (Stand-in)
Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko
Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok
Bakyt “Zayac” Emilzhanov
Captain “Solo” Alexei Berezin
Joining the team in February as a stand-in himself, Cooman's absence will be felt as he's a key player and has been in training with the team in preparation for the event. However, iLTW, is considered one of the best carry players in the region and should be able to pick up the slack.
