The CIS organization, Vega Squadron has picked up the European squad Team Lithium just before DreamLeague Season 10 Minor.
The pick up of a European Dota 2 team is a first for the CIS organization.
According to Georgy "drAmer" Faleev, Sports Director, this venture was one that started months ago initially and has just now become a reality for various reasons.
I’m glad that it was quick and easy to find a common ground with Team Lithium. I hope that our cooperation will productive and long-term. This roster includes both experienced players and young talents, but they’re all united with one thing - they are eager to work and win. Welcome to the shark pack!”
Despite Vega's location in the CIS region, the team will be competing for the available EU spots in upcoming DPC events.
Team Lithium was formed at the start of the new DPC 2018-2019 season and have been a solid fixture in the European scene since. Although the team has struggled to lay claim to any notable achievements yet, taking 3-4th at Redbull Guardians most recently, they were able to land a big opportunity to change that when they answered the call to replace Team Liquid at DreamLeague Season 10 minor. It will be the perfect chance for them to make a splash under the new banner and seize a top placement. The team's debut under the new banner though will be with Danil "Dendi" Ishutin standing in for Anas "MagE-" Hirzallah who was unable to obtain his visa to the event with their short notice.
