Virtus.Pro is one of the most successful Dota 2 teams in the world. However, after their mediocre TI 9 performance, there were some very notable changes in their roster. Their star carry player Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev departed the CIS powerhouse in favor of Evil Geniuses. In addition, Pavel “9pasha” Khvastunov also left VP and joined one of their biggest rivals – Natus Vincere.
Changes – Resolut1on

Since the deadline for registering in the new DPC ends soon, changes had to be made. That’s why Virtus.Pro has just announced that Roman “Resolut1on” Fomonik will be joining their roster. However, he will not be playing his usual position one or two. Instead, he will be filling in the gap left by 9pasha in the offlane.
Needless to say, Reso has been one of the most consistent players in the world. Unfortunately, ever since DC seized to exist after getting that second place at TI 6, his career has not really been the best. His last team called J.storm was unable to live up to the expectations. In fact, they were unable to qualify for any Minors or Majors during the last DPC.
In addition to Reso, Egor “epileptick1d” Grigorenko will be standing in for the upcoming qualifiers.
Sadly, another legendary CIS player will also leave Virtus.Pro. Vladimir “RodjeR” Nikogosyan will try to find his luck elsewhere. According to the official announcement, he has been “benched and up for transfers”.
It will definitely be intriguing to see Resolut1on playing a new role. Of course, he will likely be able to cope with it very well because he is an outstanding player.
However, before we can see the new lineup in action, VP needs to find a fifth player because they are currently four.
