Virtus.pro land RuSh3D duo
Virtus.pro have announced that they have picked up RuSh3D duo Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov and Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov.
Virtus.pro had been on the lookout for a new player following the unexpected departure of Taras "craft1k" Voitenko, which came just days after the creation of the team.
The Stolyarov brothers, who were last seen playing for place2play.ru in the PGS 1.6 tournament, find themselves on the move without even making an official LAN appearance for RuSh3D.
The Russian team received last week of the three wildcards into the ESWC finals next month, but bowed out of last weekend's THOR Open Qualifier in the very first round following a 16-9 defeat to Copenhagen Wolves.
Dosia and his brother switch teams
HLTV.org has learned that RuSh3D have not yet found a sponsor to cover the team's expenses, so their attendance looks to be very much in doubt right now.
Meanwhile, Virtus.pro have decided to part company with Michael "evil" Garanin, who had been part of the Russian organisation's team since June 2011.
Virtus.pro now have the following roster:
Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov
Emil "kucher" Akhundov
Kiril "ANGE1" Karasiow
Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev
With the loss of Stolyarov brothers, RuSh3D now have a three-man roster that looks like this:
Roman "ROMJkE" Makarov
Sergey "hally" Shavaev
Deniz "seized" Kostin
