Fire stand-in for Mouz at D2SC, Goblin for Vigoss in TR

General Ulrich “KongoTime” Hanten

Georg 'Fire' Krug will replace Mirsad 'DeMeNt' Djokovic in Mousesports for the upcoming Dota 2 Star Championship, due to Djokovic having trouble to obtain a visa for Ukraine. In The Retry, Ivan 'Vigoss' Shinkarev did not appear on-site today and will be replaced by ex-Na`Vi player Artur 'Goblin' Kostenko.

The announcement of the short-term player switch for Kiev came with the offical press release of Mousesports' comeback to the DotA-scene. 20-year-old Krug became the most convenient alternative, due to his former stay in Mouz and long history as competitive DotA player in teams such as Wicked and TheShit, which became Online Kingdom later.

The Retry meanwhile have to suffer from the absence of Ivan 'Vigoss' Shinkarev, who is to get replaced by Ukrainian high level player and frequent Cyberarena attender Artur 'Goblin' Kostenko, who originally intended to compete as captain of tier-4 team 3D.

The first group stage of D2SC is set to kick off momentarily with the first round of group A.
