The Russian esports organization Team Spirit has returned to the Dota 2 scene by acquiring five players that used to play under the Old but Gold tag.
Old but Gold roster, which includes Ilya "Illidan" Pivcaev, Sergey "G" Bragin, Stanislav "633" Glushan, Fedor "velheor" Rusikhin and Ivan "VANSKOR" Skorokhod, was formed in January and has survived without a single roster change. The team managed to qualify for only one DPC event – in March they attended StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor, where they placed 3-4th. Recently the team finished 2nd at GG.Bet Birmingham Invitational and managed to qualify for Adrenaline Cyber League 2019. In the nearest future the team will participate in the qualifiers for EPICENTER Major 2019.
The previous Team Spirit roster was disbanded in January, a few weeks after the team’s captain Artsiom "fng" Barshack left the team to join Gambit Esports. Besides fng, the former roster consisted of Oliver "oliver" Lepko, Leon "Nine" Kirilin, Mikki Mørch "HesteJoe-Rotten" Junget, and Malthe "Biver" Winther.
