The CIS Dota 2 scene has always been one of the most interesting to watch. One of the main reasons for this is the fact that each team is so unique. Having said that, the roster of Team Spirit used to be one of the most promising ones because it featured some of the biggest names in the CIS region.

Instead, Team Spirit finished last in their group with only a single win. It is important to remember that the previous name of this team was Old But Gold. In fact, Team Spirit acquired them just before the start of the TI qualifiers.
However, considering their poor results, the step taken by the organization was definitely expected.
