Earlier today, Winstrike Team announced the addition of Arsenii "ArsZeeqq" Usov to its Dota 2 roster. Taking the mantle of team coach, his first order of business is to create a winning roster.
All active players prior to ArsZeeqq's signing have been benched as the new coach will build a new team from scratch. This big change puts Ilya "Lil" Ilyuk, Aleksander "Nofear" Churochkin and Zaur "Cooman" Shakhmurzaev on the inactive list.
Commenting on the changes, ArsZeeqq said: "Once at the Major in Stockholm I jokingly offered to Marie my help on forming a new team, scouting new players etc. because at that time the team was experiencing some difficulties. Six months have passed and now I am really going to do it and will represent such a respected holding by coaching the Dota 2 team."
ArsZeeqq was originally a support player who began his coaching career in 2017 with Effect. Since then he has moved on to Team Empire and most recently, Virtus.pro. He helped his last team place 3rd in ESL One Hamburg 2018 and win the Kuala Lumpur Major, Maincast Autumn Brawl and Adrenaline Cyber League 2019. They also finished 3rd at EPICENTER Major.
Winstrike's former roster was assembled in Spring 2019, but since then Airat "Silent" Gaziev was made a substitute while Eugeniy "Sh4dowehhh" Alekseev, Bogdan "Iceberg" Vasilenko and Alexey "nongrata" Vasilyev all left the team.
The organisation thanked Cooman, Lil and Nofear for all the work they've done and wished them successful careers.
