Vega Squadron will not change their roster, the organization announced over Twitter on Wednesday.

The announcement came right after the team was eliminated from the Frankfurt Major and ahead of the eventual winter roster shuffle. Roster registration opens again on Nov. 22 and will lock for the winter season on Dec. 8.

Statment by Vega Squadron's general manager, Vanja 'HighArT' Šimunec:

"No matter how bad or good our run was at the Frankfurt Major, we did not plan to change our squad or any players after the event. Of course we expected more from this tournament, but things do not always work like you plan it. Vega will stay together, we believe in our guy's future potential, friendship and and in-game chemistry. The team has been together for less then 1 year, it is still a pretty young team, but we already have had some amazing results; we are constantly amongst the top 10 teams in the world. We will continue this performance, and I believe we will be better in the future! This Major was a big experience for some of our guys, and its definitely a plus for all of them!"

The ESL One New York 2015 champions in Vega did not have the strongest result at the Frankfurt Major; they were the only team invited to the tournament that finished in the bottom 8.

Despite their result, the team did not do that poorly as far as stats at the Frankfurt Major. He had both the 11th highest GPM and XPM, and the 13th most kills. Alexei "Solo" Berezin also maintains his reputation as a high impact support player with the 10th most assists and Pavel "9pashaebashu" Hvastunov has the 15th highest KDA.
