Virtus.Pro was involved in a controversy a couple of days ago when Valve announced it would ban 10 players for account sharing. Strangely, Kamil “Koma” Biktimirov was one of them, and he was VP’s new carry. The CIS powerhouses made roster changes after failing to qualify for TI 11, and this was one of the new players.
The bad news was that things didn’t go as planned because the player was banned. What’s even worse was that the roster lock was already in place, meaning that VP was stuck with just 4 active players in its roster. Fortunately, Valve has allowed the team to add a new player, which is why they’ve acquired Alexandr “krylat” Krylatov
An exception for VP

Usually, Valve is a company that does not like to make exceptions, especially when it comes down to Dota 2. However, due to the current circumstances, the company had to make an exception for Virtus.Pro.
Krylat is one of the popular players in Eastern Europe, and he’s been around for a couple of years. In fact, his professional career started in 2018, and he was a part of several teams. For example, he was a part of Team Empire Hope, as well as Unique Nov and PuckChamp. Sadly, he wasn’t able to win anything big with his team.
Now, he will have the chance to shine with Virtus.Pro and will be the team’s new carry. The new roster consists of the following team:
- Alexandr “krylat” Krylatov
- Oleg “sayuw” Kalenbet
- Ilya “Squad1x” Kuvaldin
- Evgeniy “Noticed” Ignatenko
- Andrey “Dukalis” Kuropatkin
Krlylat is an established player that definitely has the needed skill to help his team succeed. The Eastern European Dota 2 region is really strong right now because there are several top teams. Even though it won’t be easy for VP to win, the team has the needed firepower.
