Team Empire Merges Its Two Dota 2 Rosters
Team Empire has decided to merge their two Dota 2 rosters Team Empire Faith and Team Empire Hope into one main roster.
The roster will include mainly those players who initially represented the Hope roster – Kiyalbek "dream" Tayirov, Konstantin "Kodos" Kogai, Vladislav "BLACKARXANGEL" Ivashenko, and Oleg "sayuw" Kalenbet, who will be joined by Igor "Maden" Modenov from the Faith roster. Zaur "Cooman" Shakhmurzaev will remain in the organization but will be benched as “[he is] a player whose performance is on a highest level, but, unfortunately, he didn't fit in a current roster”. The other players, including Sergey "G" Bragin, Stanislav "633" Glushan, Yaroslav "Miposhka" Naidenov and Fedor "velheor" Rusikhin are no longer part of the organization.
Team Empire decided to create two Dota 2 rosters last November. Few weeks ago they shuffled the players between the two rosters. None of the rosters managed to qualify for any LAN-events. Despite that, Team Empire esports director Alexander "StrangeR" Solomonov mentioned in the official statement that the experiment with two rosters was successful to both players and management.
