The information appeared that the management of Team Empire will try out new players for the main roster of Dota 2. Currently, Maksim «Yoky» Kim joined the team to replace Ivan «VANSKOR» Skorokhod in the active roster. Together with Maksim, the team will play on MID.TV Challenge Cup.
Aleksander «Stranger» Solomonov comments:
«As I told previously, currently the team has an opportunity for experiments. On MID.TV tournament, yoky will play on the 4th position instead of Vanskor, but that does not mean that Vanya is no longer a player for Empire. We will take the decision at the end of December.»
