Virtus.pro has earned its spot at the ONE Esports Singapore Major by winning a fifth straight match in the fourth week of the DPC CIS upper division.
Virtus.pro hadn’t dropped a single game until its most recent match against Team Spirit, which ended with VP winning 2-1. Virtus.pro has notable wins over Team Empire, AS Monaco Gambit (formerly known as Live to Win), and Team Unique (previously called NoPangolier).
Virtus.pro has two matches left to play in the upper division. Even if VP were to lose these matches, the team would still be ahead of every other team in the standings, except for Natus Vincere — who also have a 5-0 record.
Virtus.pro became the team to look out for when the organization won the stacked EPIC League tournament that included the best teams from Europe and CIS. VP’s decision to promote its younger VP.Prodigy roster proved to be what the team needed.
In the four weeks of upper division action in the DPC CIS region, we’ve seen VP play near perfect games. VP is starting to look like one of the most dangerous teams coming into the Singapore Major because of their ability to overwhelm their opponents at any point of their matches.
Virtus.pro will face the organization’s former team captain Alexey “Solo” Berezin and NoTechies on February 19. In the final week of the first DPC season, VP will then face the surging Natus Vincere squad led by Andrii “ALWAYSWANNAFLY” Bondarenko on February 26.
Virtus.pro joins Team Secret as the first teams to qualify into the Major through DPC upper division competition. The ONE Esports Singapore Major will take place from March 27 to April 4, 2021.
