It looks like all-star rosters are slowly becoming a trend in the Dota 2 world. Just days after the Chinese all-star roster with 4AM was revealed, a new all-star roster looks to be in the works in the CIS region. Syed Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan, Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko, Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev and Alexey "Solo" Berezin are reportedly teaming up to form an all-star roster.
All-Star Roster Featuring SumaiL, No[o]ne, Ramzes, Solo Leaked By rOtK
Chinese coach Bai "rOtK" Fan leaked a conversation between former Virtus.Pro General Manager, Roman Dvoryankin and himself which teases a new Dota 2 roster featuring some of the most accomplished players in the CIS region as well as SumaiL.
rOtK was approached by Dvoryankin to become the coach of the new team. This was revealed on his personal stream. This conversation was showcased on his stream, revealing the full roster in the making.
The lineup features:
- Carry: Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev
- Mid: Syed Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan
- Offlane: Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko
- Position 5: Alexey "Solo" Berezin
rOtK might be the coach of this lineup. Currently, the Chinese player stated that he wanted to take a break for a couple of months because he is mentally drained. However, Dvoryankin stated that the team did not intend to start playing for a couple of months giving rOtK enough time to consider a coaching role for this team. rOtK didn’t reveal his final decision but stated that the he thinks the lineup is a good team.
The authenticity of these leaks:
Cybersport has confirmed the authenticity of this roster leak, reaching out to Roman Dvoryankin who stated:
“We actually spoke with rOtK a couple of days ago. He has already apologized for showing the conversation on his stream, I have nothing more to add yet.”
Dvoryankin also posted on his social media, indicating that all was well with rOtK
The fifth player in this lineup has not yet been revealed but it is speculated that Danial "yamich" Lazebny will be playing in the Position 4 role in this team.
Of course, if these roster changes take place there will be a seismic amount of transfers and player movement happening in the western scene. Evil Geniuses, Virtus.Pro, Winstrike will all likely see multiple players leave the lineup.
The future of Virtus.Pro players Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok and Bakyt "Zayac" Emilzhanov also hangs in the balance. It is certainly going to be an interesting few weeks where we see how this plays out.
