h4cker & kucher join Virtus, DTS dead
By: Pus
Time: 2012-02-10 15:24
Game: Counter-Strike 1.6

Following Taras "craft1k" Voitenko's retirement and a poor finish at IEM6 Kiev, DTS has disbanded while Roman "h4cker" Abramov and Emil "kucher" Akhundov join Virtus.pro.

The move comes just days before Techlabs cup is set to begin where DTS was placed in group C along with ALTERNATE, SK Gaming and WinFakt. Virtus.pro will be replacing DTS in the event.

DTS most recently placed 7-8th at IEM6 Global Challenge Kiev after losing all three of their matches in group A with SK Gaming, Natus Vincere and Lions. They were also invited to attend the IEM6 World Championships as a backup team, but declined.

DTS was:

Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow
Emil "kucher" Akhundov
Egor "pops" Zinoview
Alexey "xaoc" Kucherov

Virtus.pro's last event was World Cyber Games 2011 where they finished 9-16th after a round of sixteen loss against DTS which still featured Voitenko at the time.

The team's future has been in question ever since Bogdanov was announced as a stand-in for DTS last month, but with the pickups of Abramov and Akhundov, they have a roster of five again.

Virtus.pro

Aleksey "LeX" Kolesnikov
Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov
Emil "kucher" Akhundov
Michael "evil" Garanin
Roman "h4cker" Abramov

The new Virtus.pro roster will first be seen in action in Techlabs Cup where they will begin their campaign on Monday at 19:00 with a match against WinFakt, followed up by SK Gaming at 20:00 and ALTERNATE at 21:00.


Oops..
Sad with DTS- really liked that team.

where is ANGE1 going ?
2012-02-10 15:27:03
I'd like to see him in NaVi. He's great player.
2012-02-10 15:29:29
Yes but none of the Na'Vi players will ever be kickout .
2012-02-10 15:31:10
Correct!
2012-02-10 15:57:22
ceh9 maybe...
2012-02-10 16:18:21
I don't think so .
2012-02-10 16:21:57
theyve been together for too long =/
2012-02-10 16:39:36
No way for anyone to leave
2012-02-10 16:47:16

i think Na'Vi never change line up :D
2012-02-10 19:24:55
its true
they never change lineup
2012-02-10 19:43:50
wrong! before the end of 2012 ange1 plays in navi :P
2012-02-10 19:33:27
- cheh9 , I wich that was the case but i don't so .
2012-02-10 22:27:29
for now navi will not change, but I bet either kucher or ange1 will join them somewhere 2nd halve of 2012 :P
2012-02-10 22:44:00
well, let's see :D
2012-02-10 23:03:24
yes , you are right :c
2012-02-15 22:16:12
Just hoping he will not have to wait too long before he gets a starter spot, long breaks are not good for cs players :p
2012-02-15 22:53:35
TRue , you are always right !(fuck this shit no point arguing with you :D )
2012-02-16 20:06:24
Hehe :pppp
2012-02-16 20:16:52
NEVER! ceh9 = king.
2012-02-10 22:44:15

So, He had a daughter and I suppose he'll comeback to real life =0
2012-02-10 16:10:22
has ! :D
2012-02-10 16:37:55
dude watch your English - if you say 'had' it implies that the daughter died... that's not funny at all.
2012-02-10 18:17:03
The way he used it was correct, meaning he had a daughter - as in, she was born.

:/
2012-02-10 19:58:49
I never said it wasn't grammatically correct, the meaning of it is different though. If you're gonna say 'he had a daughter' it means she died. The correct thing to say is 'His wife/girlfriend gave birth.'
2012-02-10 22:07:19
actually no, in England and America they really use the frase just like that, where had means gotten/received
2012-02-10 22:46:26
liQuid is correct, as always.
2012-02-11 00:40:53
hehe thanks man :P
2012-02-11 13:59:42
get it
thanks guys
2012-02-11 08:13:30
Take it from the native speakers, the way you phrased it was fine.
2012-02-11 12:57:40
fail. And watch your english? What? is everyone supposed to speak good english? We do what we can. Leaving apart the fact that u got it all wrong.
2012-02-11 13:49:56
As far as I know, that would be correct coming from the mother, or the couple's point of view, not from the man's mouth. Maybe I did get it wrong but not sure if FAIL is the word? I think that's a bit harsh - I work for a US based company and I speak English 8 hours a day, more than I even speak my native language and I've been doing this from the past 5 years.
2012-02-11 17:17:08
nooo DTS :S why :(
2012-02-10 15:27:11
ange1 :S but that team has no bigger future with pops

Well, sad story for DTS was a great organization, but for the other side we can see that VP have now a very decent team, capable to beat top teams, good luck guys
2012-02-10 15:39:43
Vp will probably fail like always, should've added angel too.

2012-02-10 15:49:53
NaVi may feel its necessary for a change now that the rest of the world is upgrading there rosters. Maybe not, but maybe so. craft1k and ANGE1 are the 2 best players outside of NaVi imo and are easily good enough to play with them.
2012-02-10 15:50:27
but craft1k retired
2012-02-10 15:54:34
im sure a chance to play with NaVi would change his mind.
2012-02-10 17:15:24
kucher and z1 are awesome aswell, and some other kerchnetters have potential. but I doubt navi will make moves immediately, they will see how their roster works against the new teams. I think ESC and SK will win more titles than navi next 5 months though, and this might spark an attempt to upgrade the roster
2012-02-10 22:50:29

2012-02-10 18:06:05
Bad choice for kucher, Virtus.pro are a thousand times worse than DTS were. :/

-hoochR and maybe they can do some damage, but with him in the team, i don't see potential.

hope kucher will still pwn some noobs. ;/
2012-02-10 18:08:46
Well, considering last Nations Cup matches old hoochR is back on track and started to play good again. I agree that in the last matches for Virtus.pro he was not playing good at all, but I hope that situation improved and all is going to be ok now. And about kucheR choise, dude there is no any better team in SNG for him atm.

ANGE1 is a caller atleast of what I have heard. He is an insane player aswell. Zeus has become a father and is no longer their strat caller, he might want to raise his child. I don't know, atleast it would be the ideal move in my theory. :p
2012-02-10 20:00:57
Maybe, but judging on Zeus performance at IEM6 EC, I think he'll make it to the top5 of 2012.

Moscow Five

ed1k - AWP
xek - AWP

2012-02-11 11:30:18
LeX himself said he doesn't even think he is a primary awper, it just depends what part of the maps he's playing

and i'd prob imagine kucher will be the primary awper and h4cker and LeX with rifles(which they are both amazing with)
2012-02-11 15:21:08

It's always like that .. "one dies, so new one can born" .. GL to Virtus.pro; always liked them, and I think they can beat teams like Lions, M5 in 2012 =)

2012-02-11 09:19:42
LeX himself said he doesn't even think he is a primary awper, it just depends what part of the maps he's playing

and i'd prob imagine kucher will be the primary awper and h4cker and LeX with rifles(which they are both amazing with)
2012-02-11 15:20:00
situation like a virtus.pro,collect together,play 2-3 month and take end :( sad
2012-02-11 09:16:34
well, if DTS truly is dead, then i would like to see xaoc and ANGE1 in KerchNET with krutoi, B1ad3 and z1/bondik (or even craft1k when/if he returns).

that would be a team pretty much equal to DTS, with potential to get even better.
2012-02-11 09:37:30
Looks good on paper.
2012-02-11 17:18:45
