LightOfHeaveN joins Virtus.Pro
After his departure from Na'Vi and his taking the role of the Russian caster, many speculated that LightOfHeaveN's gaming career was over. With a surprising move, the Russian DotA maestro joined Virtus.Pro, and will seek a spot in the upcoming International.
Dmitry"LighTofHeaveN" Kupriyanov was one of the most valuable players during The International 2, while being a core member of the Ukrainian powerhouse Natus Vincere. With Na'Vi going through a big slump during 2013, LoH decided to leave Na'Vi for Empire. However, the new squad did not manage to qualify to The International, forcing Dmitry to go to Seattle as a caster alongside v1lat.
After his successful casting in TI3, most rumours wanted LighTofHeaveN to continue his career as a caster, despite older statements of his about his potential entry in an "interesting" team. It seems that the lucky squad is Virtus.Pro, that recently kicked three of their members leaving Sergey "ARS-ART" Revin and Yaroslav "NS" Kuznetcov. Speculations also want Artur 'Goblak" Kostenko and Sergey "God" Bragin to join the team as well, even before the start of Star Series on August 31. The new team will consist of five CIS superstars, meaning that Russia will enter the DotA2 scene with a lot of potential this year.
Current Virtus.Pro roster:
Yaroslav "NS" Kuznetcov
Sergey "ARS-ART" Revin
Dmitry "LighTofHeaveN" Kupriyanov
Sergey "God" Bragin
Artur "Goblak" Kostenko
