ArtStyle leaves DTS

General Linus “Tjernobylbarnet” Staaf
This will be a sad day for the DTS organisation, as their DotA teams captain and ganker/hardcarry Ivan "ArtStyle" Antonov decided to leave the team. Traces of Art will still remain in the team however, as his replacement marks with the former TR fighter ARS-ART aka Smile, a more than suitable substitute.

NS said in a recent interview that the key to success is leadership and stable roster. And now shortly after, the roster that brought so many victories during this year partially splits up as Ivan "ArtStyle" Antonov leaves due to personal reasons. The impressive achievements he led DTS to in 2010 are:
2nd - Pick League XIII
1st - Storm the Front #3
2nd - ESWC
1st - MYM Prime Defending #12
3rd - WDC

Hopefully they will be able to maintain their crown of Europe with their new roster as well. With Smile in their ranks, they've already managed to bring down the gold at ASUS Autumn 2010, by beating PGG's Max1 in the final. That final also brought us the return of LightofHeaven's Morphling.

Statement given to ProDota to NS
The past year can on all counts be called successful for us, and therefore we're hardly pleased to part with a member of our friendly team. But that's life, not everything goes smooth and according to plan. We wish Ivan all the luck in the future, and say thank you for spending time with us. As for the updated DTS - the new year will bring us victories, we will make every effort improving the new line-up, making it stronger and more coherent. We will try to please our fans.

Statement given to ProDota by ARS-ART
Hello! I am very happy to play for a team like DTS.Chatrix. And I hope that I will make a worthy replacement for Artstyle and help the team to perform no worse than in 2010.
