Ukrainian organization FlyToMoon (FTM) has officially signed veteran position 4 support player, Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosyan, to round out their rising Dota 2 squad.
RodjER first joined FTM as a stand-in for Ilya “ALOHADANCE” Korobkin, who parted ways with the team in early August. With RodjER in the lineup, FTM triumphed over 15 other tier two EU/CIS teams to win the OMEGA League European Divine Division.
RodjEr, at 26 years old, will be the second-oldest player on FTM’s roster behind longtime veteran and 29-year old Andrey “ALWAYSWANNAFLY” Bondarenko.
The veteran leadership provided by the two will be invaluable in steering FTM’s relatively young FTM of Alik “V-Tune” Vorobey, Bogdan “Iceberg” Vasilenko, and Victor “GeneRaL” Nigrini.
RodjER has been a mainstay of the CIS Dota scene since 2014, though he only started making waves as a member of Team Empire and Natus Vincere in 2017. RodjER was then traded to Virtus.pro in 2018 and was instrumental in the CIS juggernaut’s run to four Dota Pro Circuit Major championships.
RodjER started this season with Winstrike, leaving the team in February to to become a member of HellRaisers from March to July.
RodjER and FTM will be competing in the upcoming ESL One Germany online EU/CIS league, which starts on October 5.
