Official: Virtus.pro capture Iron Will
Virtus.pro have announced they have raided Iron Will for their Counter-Strike team.
The move marks Virtus.pro's return to the CS business after disbanding the organisation in November of 2009 following a series of mixed results.
Three players of the lineup were part of the successful Virtus.pro team who placed third at ESWC 2004 and lifted the ACON5 trophy in China one year later.
The now ex-Iron Will team are looking to find in the new organisation the stability they have been missing since the start of the year.

Aleksey "HEL1" Novikov
Ivan "F_1N" Kochugov
Alexey "LeX" Kolesnikov
