One of the two new additions to the Vega Squadron team was officially announced, and it's none other than the CIS prodigy support SoNNeikO.

Akbar 'SoNNeikO' Butaev, The International 5 and 6 attendee with Natus Vincere, was released from the Ukrainian squad a week ago. With two of their members let go as well, Vega Squadron didn’t waste too much time before securing the 9K MMR support for themselves. SoNNeikO will replace Artsiom 'Fng' Barshak at Vega; however, it’s not yet decided if he will also take the team’s leadership.

Akbar is the one of the strongest players in CIS region. Moreover he is good both in micro and macro play which is very rare. I am glad that he joined Vega Squadron and hope that with his help our team can overcome the crisis of the last months - Georgy 'drAmer' Faleev, Manager of Vega Squadron

A few days ago Vega Squadron announced their decision to release both Fng and Bogdan 'Iceberg' Vasylenko from the roster in their attempt to make their Dota 2 team regain the success they once had. Vega Squadron had an overall disappointing run through 2016. From ESL One New York Champions at the end of 2015, they came nowhere close to qualifying for The International 6, and they recently failed to secure a spot for the Boston Major despite having a solid roster on paper. Hard decisions had to be made, but hopefully everything will pay off for the Russian organization in 2017.

SoNNeikO’s statement after joining Vega Squadron:

I am glad to become a part of this team and will make everything to achieve maximum results. I hope to come up to fan's expectation and I will not let them down

Vega Squadron current roster:

Ukraine Rostislav 'Fn' Lozovoi
Ukraine Andrey 'MAg-' Chipenko
Ukraine Syoma 'CeMaTheSlayeR' Krivulya
Russia Akbar 'SoNNeikO' Butaev

SoNNeikO’s addition leaves only the solo mid position unfilled. According to the organization, the announcement of their new mid player should come by the end of the week if everything goes well.

Will Vega Squadron sign a big name from the CIS scene for the mid lane as well?
