Resolut1on to Replace Timado in VGJ.Storm
The North American division of the Chinese organization VGJ, allied company of Vici Gaming, announced changes in its roster: Enzo "Timado" Gianoli leaves the team, he will be replaced by Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok.
According to the official statement, the team decided to change players mainly due to visa issues – Timado has Peruvian citizenship, while the team was based in North America. The current VGJ.Storm roster was created in February and consisted of Yawar "YawaR" Hassan, Enzo "Timado" Gianoli, Jingjun "Sneyking" Wu, Arif "MSS" Anwar and Avery "SVG" Silverman. At the end of March the team managed to win two regional qualifiers: for GESC: Thailand Dota2 Minor and MDL Changsha Major. The management of the team promised to compensate Timado for the fact that he will miss these two tournaments for which he helped to qualify.
Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok is a 21-years-old professional player from Ukraine. Although at the start of his career he played in various CIS-based teams, such as iCCup, RoX and Team Empire, later he decided to move to the United States and joined Digital Chaos, with them Resolut1on managed to place second at The International 2016. After the team disbanded in 2017, he moved back to Europe and joined OG. The biggest accomplishment of Resolut1on with OG is their victory at MDL Macau minor. It was not enough for the team which used to be the major champions, and they decided to exclude Resolut1on from the roster. Since the change was made after the roster lock, both OG and Resolut1on lost all their qualification points.
