The information about the disbandment of the Dota 2 roster has appeared on the official website of the organization HellRaisers and the unsuccessful performances of the team had become the main reason for such decision. The head of the eSports club is going to stop working on the professional Dota 2 stage and to start searching for new talents in other eSports disciplines.
The comment of CEO HellRaisers, Aleksey «xaoc» Kucherov:
«Dear friends and fans of HellRaisers, from now on, our organization and the Dota 2 team will go different roads. We want to please our viewers with a big number of wins, so we'll look for other prospective opportunities in esports disciplines.
Due to the current schedule of tournaments, you're either in the top 8 and attend almost all events, or you're not in the top 8 and it's extremely hard for you to qualify for a LAN as you fight with the best Dota 2 teams for 1 slot in Europe.
See you and good luck!»
The team spent as a part of HellRaisers about five months and during them, it could hold only the last place at The International 2017 and fight its way to WCA 2017. Unfortunately, the team won only one of eleven qualifiers to the tournaments.
The former Dota 2 roster of HellRaisers:
Alexei «j4» Lipai (captain)
Neta «33» Shapira
Greg «Keyser» Kallianiotis
Milan «MiLAN» Kozomara
