Vega Squadron finalize roster with Dima

Dmitriy "Dima" Bandurka has joined Vega Squadron as their fifth player, with the organization also adding a second coach, Viktor "vidoq" Manaenkov.

Dima was deemed surplus from Spirit after the team underwent changes following their early exit from the IEM Katowice New Challengers Stage. After a month on the sidelines, Dima will return to action with Vega Squadron.

Dima and his donkey have joined forces with the Sharks

The 24-year-old will, therefore, be the final piece of the puzzle for the team that is now down to just two players that represented them during the last Major cycle—Dmitriy "jR" Chervak and Igor "crush" Shevchenko—, with former Runtime duo Denis "seized" Kostin and Alexander "scoobyxie" Marynych joining ahead of Dima.

Vega Squadron has also announced the addition of a second coach, vidoq, who worked with the squad in 2015 and will now be returning to cooperate with their current coach, Artem "Fierce" Ivanov.

In a statement regarding the news, vidoq said the following:

"We have been building up our roster seriously and the testing process wasn't short. We tested 6 different players including very young ones. We needed an experienced player that could be our mid caller and seized fitted this role very well. We also needed another experienced player and this is why we chose Dima. The last piece of puzzle became scoobyxie who is well known by the rest of our players.

"As for me, I am glad to be back home and I strongly believe in our team and the approach we chose." - vidoq via Vega Squadron's website

Vega Squadron have the following lineup:

Ukraine Dmitriy "jR" Chervak

It seems like they picked up two washed-up players with big names, I'm not a massive fan of this roster. I'd like to be proven wrong but Team Spirit looks so much more exciting.
