Iceberg with the Insights
A famous Dota 2 player and Na’Vi’s professional member, Bogden ‘Iceberg’ Vasilenko recently revealed some information about Dota Team on his live stream. The professional said that Ramzes666 and Solo already told him that Dota Team will be a short stint. Similarly, Iceberg revealed this information before the beginning of the Epic League Season 3. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to the community that the newly formed team disbanded right after one series.
Solo and Ramzes666
Solo and Ramzes666 have played in many different professional teams over the past few months. These professionals have also made other teams and disbanded. Therefore, the quick end of the Dota Team comes as no surprise to anyone. Both professionals formerly played for Virtus Pro. Solo played for Virtus Pro for about four years, before joining No Techies. Similarly, Ramzes666 played for Virtus Pro for about three years, before joining Evil Geniuses.
Dota Team Roster
The official roster of the newly formed Dota Team included Alexey ‘Nongrate’ Vasilyev, Rostislav ‘Fn’ Lozovol, Roman ‘RAMZES666’ Kushnarev, Rinat ‘KingR’ Abdullin, and Alexey ‘Solo’ Berezin. All the members now leave the team and are looking for a new home in the DPC. Before the next official tournament, some of them will be playing from different teams for sure.
Solo goes back to play from the previous squad he had been playing from, No Techies. It seems like Ramzes666 will also join the professional as the rest of the members already left the team. In the upcoming season, No Techies will begin playing from the Lower Division of the region. The team unfortunately finished last at the CIS 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division. This is the reason that all the other members felt that disbanding is the only option for the squad.
Dota Team had a good run at the group stage of the Epic League Season 3. The team only lost 1 series before entering the playoffs. Dota Team also started the playoffs in the upper bracket, facing Brame in its first round. However, the team could not pull victory and dropped down to the lower bracket to face HellRaisers. Surprisingly, the team lost 2-0 to HellRaisers as well and got eliminated. Due to this poor performance, the Russian professional stars decided to disband the team and look for another opportunity. Currently, Solo and Ramzes666 are both looking for a team to play some professional Dota.
