In a span of just two days, VP.Prodigy has added two talented players to put together one heck of a roster. VP.Prodigy first added Danil "gpk" Skutin and has now added another young gun Illias “illias” Ganeev to finalize their squad. Illias will be playing the position 5 role as he replaces Albert "eine" Garaev.

The addition of illias and gpk to the VP.Prodigy squad was being speculated by many since information regarding this was stated by ex-Cyber Legacy midlaner Idan "MagicaL" Vardanian in his personal stream.
However, at the OGA Dota Pit S3 where gpk stood in for the VP.Prodigy squad, the other person to stand in was CIS veteran Lil instead of Illias. This brushed aside claims that illias was going to be the final member of the squad. But later, Lil was signed by HellRaisers and Na’Vi benched their roster which included illias, it was again being ascertained that illias would the final part to the VP.Prodigy puzzle.
Now, VP.Prodigy has finally ended all the debate by officially announcing illias’ addition. According to the statement by CEO of VP.Prodigy, Sergey Glamazda, half of the transfer fee for getting illias from Na’Vi has been paid by the rest of VP.Prodigy roster.
“Illias is a strong player with high growth potential. The rest of the VP.Prodigy guys are so confident in him that they offered to pay half of the transfer cost. As club management, we share their confidence and are glad that we managed to assemble an optimal roster that will fight for victories and delight all of us with their play.”
illias who is just aged 18 last played for Na’Vi for around a year. Na’Vi underwent a lot of roster changes in this tenure but they always relented with the young player which hints at the player’s high potential and skill as a Dota 2 player. Unfortunately, the team was not able to live up to the expectations of the organization and was benched following a stint of disappointing performances.

With a number of online Europe/CIS Dota 2 tournaments to potentially happen in the next few months, we will soon watch this exciting bunch of teenagers in action.
