IEM Katowice Major 2019 is not over yet, however the teams that remained unsatisfied with their results at the major are starting to make roster changes. Among them Vega Squadron, who decided to part ways with their long-standing player Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov.
Chopper has been playing for Vega Squadron since late 2016. During this period, the team placed first at CIS Minor Championship – Krakow 2017 and won two events from the China Top events in 2017. They also participated in three major events – the team placed 9-11th at ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018, 12-14th at FACEIT Major: London 2018, and 20-22nd at IEM Masters XIII – Katowice Major 2019.
