PGG and Vigoss to M5
In the aftermath of the exceptionally wealthy Dota 2 tournament at the gaming trade fair Gamescom, M5 present themselves eager to force success with change. In order to raise the level of play, Russian household names Sergey 'Smile' Revin and Alexander "Santa" Coltan are to get ousted by Vladimir "PGG" Anosov and Ivan "Vigoss" Shinkarev, who both achieved legendary status in the world of DotA, yet especially within the Russian communities.
Despite having proven to be tremendously talented, both new arrivals did not compete within a solidified roster in 2011; a fact that raises doubts, wether a fast adaption is possible in the way described, in the official statements below. PGG, who already partnered with M5 in various commentating projects before, seems to further take part in captaining the team.
Moscow5 CEO Victor "Adver" Titov and veteran player Yaroslav "NS" Kuznetsov find positive words regarding the change, providing an outlook into a presumably golden future.
MoscowFive now consist of the following:
Yaroslav 'NS' Kuznetsov
Andey 'DreadlsBack' Golubev
Sergey 'GodKillThemAll' Bragin
Vladimir 'PGG' Anosov
Ivan 'vigoss' Shinkarev
