The CIS professional Dota 2 scene has always had pretty stable teams. One of them used to be HellRaisers, a team that had an entirely Ukrainian line-up. In the beginning, everything was looking good for them but after several unsuccessful attempts in winning anything significant, the organization decided to part ways with their Dota 2 roster and stop competing in the game.
After around one year, they decided to try their luck again by acquiring Planet Dog. At that time, they looked like a very promising European stack. However, things did not go as planned and just a couple of months later, HellRaisers announced their departure from Dota 2 yet again.
A New Beginning

It seems like HellRaisers decided it’s high time to get back into the game. In order to do so, they added one of the most iconic players in CIS to their roster – Ilya “ALOHADANCE” Korobkin. As you are probably aware, he was mainly focusing on streaming in the last couple of months. However, after getting banned, it seems like he decided to try his luck in the competitive scene yet again.
Ilya will team up with four other CIS players in hopes of accomplishing their goals for the 2019-2020 DPC.
HellRaisers’s roster from 1 to 5:
Ilya “ALOHADANCE” Korobkin
Yaroslav “Minposhka” Naidenov
Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin
Alexander “Nix” Levin
Alik “V-Tune” Vorobej
You can watch the new squad today at WePlay!’s Reshuffle Madness. They will be going up against Fried Pudges in R1 of the playoffs, so this is definitely a game that you won’t want to miss. If they manage to survive, the next challenge will be Nemiga Gaming.
