The Russian e-Sports organization that once featured four of the Yellow Submarine members, and has always been the launching ramp for up and coming players like TpoH or fn, has now signed a full new European roster.

After the departure of their previous European roster that placed 3rd at BTS Series Europe #2, PRIES looked into the European scene for a new squad, and it didn’t take too long until they assembled a roster, giving up and coming players a chance to shine once more.

The Freedman and Blodmin brothers from compLexity will now have brotherhood competitors as PRIES has signed a pair of their own, bringing a Danish carry - support duo into the competitive scene.

PRIES current roster from position one to five:

Denmark Jimmy 'supercell' Hoang
Bulgaria Ivailo 'Mastermind' Petkov (captain)
Sweden Max 'Mikey' Barkö
Bulgaria Ivan 'Bashruk' Valev
Denmark Kenny 'KyH' Hoang

With a brand new line-up for PRIES, a new manager was also brought into the organisation. The co-founder of Balkan Bears, Alexandru 'Sasha' Sirbu will now take care of the PRIES Dota 2 squad.

    Well, after PRIES signed TBE, they did decent for them. They didn't seem like a stable team, but still had some good showings. One thing that springs to mind is what an alleged employee at a betting company wrote about PRIES (https://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/46xncj/ewolves_are_currently_playing_a_fixed_match/): "Hello, I work for a betting company and we notice these too in some low tier games, but we can't outright cancel bets as we have no concrete evidence to prove otherwise, other teams we suspect of match fixing are Pries, Yellow Submarine. I forgot the others one but these are the ones on top of my head, don't want to mention other teams since I don't remember if they really are. But usually what happens we get new accounts who spam bet a lot in the last few minutes before tipoff, and ask for deposit afterwards, they're new accounts but are connected to current accounts that we tagged as suspicious and have been warned, we're currently investigating these matters." Here, YeS was also mentioned, so I cannot say for sure that it wasn't the old PRIES line-up that was referred to. But a recent PRIES match was mentioned as suspicious, and bets were refunded. On paper, this line-up doesn't seem hugely impressive. They kept KyH and Mastermind from the old line-up, but I have to admit I don't know the new faces. Sad to see Zenigata go.
