The CEO of the CIS organization HellRaisers Alexey Slabuhin has announced that Alexander "Nix" Levin will return to their Dota 2 team before the start of ESL One Germany 2020. He also mentioned that the organization did not have any negotiations with other clubs about the player’s transfer.
Nix is a 23-years-old Russian player who has been part of HellRaisers since September 2019, fulfilling the in-game leader role. However, this August the player took a break due to an emotional burnout. Currently the team plays with three stand-ins – Anton "DyrachYO" Shkredov, Ilya "Lil" Ilyuk and Alexey "nongrata" Vasilyev. With this roster they are participating in BTS Pro Series Season 3 – currently the team is placed 3rd in the group stage with the 3-2-1 score.
ESL One Germany 2020 is an online event scheduled for October 5th – November 1st. The event will feature 16 teams competing for a $400,000 prize pool. Besides HellRaisers, the organizers invited Team Secret, OG, Team Nigma, Team Liquid, Alliance, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Virtus.pro, Natus Vincere, Vikin.gg, FlyToMoon, and 5men.
