A new organization is entering Dota 2 by signing one of the most promising rosters in Eastern Europe.
Serbia-based 9Pandas signed the former HellRaisers roster, led by veteran captain Alexey “Solo” Berezin., the organization announced last night.
The 9Pandas roster confirmed their participation in the Berlin Major with a dominant Tour 2 in the Eastern European Dota Pro Circuit. The team went 7-0, beating out all-star squads Team Spirit and BetBoom Team for first place in the region.
9Pandas new Dota 2 roster
- Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev
- Gleb “depressed kid” Zyryanov
- Matvey “MieRo`” Vasyunin
- Vladislav “Antares” Kertman
- Alexey “Solo” Berezin
- Aleksandr “Nofear” Churochkin (coach)
The Solo-led roster joined HellRaisers in December last year, with long-time Virtus Pro teammate RAMZES666 joining in March. Unfortunately, despite their good recent results, HellRaisers decided to pull out of Dota 2 in April this year.
9Pandas will make their debut in the Berlin Major, where they will be playing in Group A — alongside other powerhouse teams like Lima Major’s top two teams Gaimin Gladiators and Team Liquid.
