9pasha and ArsZeeqq to leave Virtus.pro

The five-time Major winner with Virtus.pro Pavel «9pasha» Khvastunov is to leave our team per mutual agreement. After representing VP since August 2016, Pavel will continue his career in NAVI.

Arseniy «ArsZeeqq» Usov, the head coach of Dota 2 roster during DPC 2018/19 season, is to leave Virtus.pro along with 9pasha. Together with Arseniy we won The Kuala Lumpur Major, Maincast Autumn Brawl, Adrenaline Cyber League and reached the Grand-Finals of Chongqing and Stockholm Majors.

Roman Dvoryankin, Virtus.pro General Manager: «Pasha is a true veteran and one of the most respected players of CIS Dota. I can hardly imagine VP without him, but sooner or later everything comes to an end. We are endlessly grateful for Pavel’s contribution to our success and wish him the best of luck in NAVI. Special thanks to our coach - even as ArsZeeqq faced constant pressure from the community, his positivity and dedication never faded. His Chongqing performance against PSG.LGD will remain in our hearts forever».

Pavel Khvastunov: «Those were awesome three years I will never forget. We showed the entire world that a CIS team can play great Dota. Huge thanks to all our fans! I am eager to face new challenges in NAVI. See you at the tournaments!»
