Virtus.pro Release Solo&Co
Last week, Virtus.pro announced that VP.Prodigy players have been transferred to the first team, while the former Dota 2 roster has been disbanded. Yesterday, they have officially confirmed that Aleksey "Solo" Berezin, Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko, and Bakyt "Zayac" Emilzhanov left the club on a free transfer.
The guys decided to form a new stack though, together with ex-EG's Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev and Syed Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan. The new team is called Just Error. You can learn more about the situation in this article.
Team Unique on pause
Team Unique paused their Dota 2 roster and temporarily retired from the discipline. Club's CEO Georgy Faleev shared the reasons:
“We pause the Dota 2 team until the start of the DPC season. The pause will last until next year, and the comeback itself will be planned as soon as Valve's plans for the current season become clear. The crisis began at the beginning of the summer. It was compounded by border closures and health problems for some players. We tried to smoothly bring the team to the DPC season announced in the fall, and already in the course of the league to see if any major changes are needed. However, with the onset of November, the situation around the next season did not become clear. The decision to 'pause' is conditioned not so much by the results as by the general situation on the Dota 2 stage. At the moment, keeping the roster in this discipline is most unprofitable."
Yaroslav "Pikachu" Vasilenko and Stanislav "633" Glushan became free agents, and Yegor "19teen" Leksyutin, Danil "illusion" Volchan, and Ivan "VANSKOR" Skorokhod were put up for transfer.
