Virtus.pro join DreamHack Valencia list

DreamHack has announced that Virtus.pro are the second team to receive an invite to compete at the upcoming Open event in Valencia.

The Polish side join Heroic, who were invited earlier on Tuesday, as well as three qualified teams, on the roster for the Spanish competition, which will take place from July 12-14 at Feria Valencia.

This will be Virtus.pro's first LAN appearance since losing longtime member Janusz "⁠Snax⁠" Pogorzelski. According to DreamHack, the EMS One Katowice 2014 Major champions will field Piotr "⁠morelz⁠" Taterka, who has been standing in for the team since the departure of the now mousesports player.

morelz will make his first LAN apperance for Virtus.pro

Virtus.pro were last seen on LAN at the CS:GO Asia Championships, in Shanghai, where they came in second place after losing to Natus Vincere in a three-map final.

With this announcement, the list of participants for DreamHack Open Valencia now looks as follows:

Small LAN for a small team, expected. Giants will perform well (like spanish teams usually do) at home, especially since every other team known (as of now) is shit or slumping hard.

"According to DreamHack, the EMS One Katowice 2014 Major champions will field Piotr "morelz" Taterka, who has been standing in for the team since the departure of the now mousesports player." Why would they use such an outdated tournament... nearly 4 years ago. Why not ELEAGUE champions? or runner up at EpiCenter? Absolute trash article.
