Let the shuffle begin! Team Spirit lets go of AFTERLIFE and RAMZES

Dota 2 Ben “PineappleCake” Tan

With the Shanghai Major transfer period quickly approaching, Team Spirit has let go Roman 'RAMZES666' Kushnarev and Vasily 'AFTERLIFE' Shishkin.

The move of releasing their offlane and carry player comes after the team's poor performance in the time leading up to the Shanghai Major and the Shanghai Major itself. The team finished 13th - 16th at the Shanghai Major and has failed to qualify for any LAN events after their 10th place finish at the Mars Dota2 League.

Team Spirit's current roster:
Ukraine Artur 'Goblak' Kostenko
Ukraine Andrey 'ALWAYSWANNAFLY' Bondarenko
Ukraine Bogdan 'Iceberg' Vasilenko
TBD

Although it is still early in the transfer period, the recently released Alexander 'XBOCT' Dashkevich and Gleb 'Funn1k' Lipatnikov (according to V1at) are potential candidates to join Team Spirit; the two CIS players are well known for their carry and offlane skills and were released by Empire. Despite this scenario looking plausible, it must be kept in mind that this is purely speculation and that other CIS teams, such as Virtus.Pro, might undergo roster changes, adding to the list of CIS free agents for Team Spirit to choose from.
