mir joins Virtus.pro
Reinforcement for The Bears: Nikolay "mir" Bityukov joins the Virtus.pro CS:GO roster. His first match will be against 9z in Buenos Aires on July 8th, where he will replace David "n0rb3r7" Daniyelyan, who is forced to miss the trip due to an injury.
Nikolai Petrossian, CEO of Virtus.pro:
“During the test games with mir, who signed a long-term contract with the club on July 1st, he proved to be the best candidate for the team in terms of his in-game role and personal skill. In addition, he immediately found a common language with his teammates. Nikolay is a very experienced player, and the coaching staff and I are confident that he will be able to play his best game and realize his full potential with Virtus.pro.
We planned to announce mir's arrival a bit later, but David's injury forced us to speed up. The more interesting for the audience will be the clash in Argentina.
As for the roster for the subsequent tournaments, we will announce it later.”
