There has been a slew of departures in Virtus.Pro's Dota 2 lineup this week with carry player Pure and coach boolk departing from the roster.

It looks like Virtus.Pro’s Dota 2 roster is undergoing a massive roster shuffle after its disqualification from the Eastern European Dota 2 Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021/2022 Tour 2: Playoffs. First, Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko’s contract with Virtus.Pro was terminated as a result of his actions in the DPC. Following this, it announced that it was parting ways with its coach Anatoly “boolk” Ivanov as a result of “declining and disappointing” results.

Now, its midlaner Danil "gpk" Skutin has posted a story on his official Instagram handle, indicating that he may be looking for a new European team.

On his Instagram handle, gpk posted “LFT eu Lol)” which could presumably mean that he is looking for a new team in the European region.

This is not the first time that gpk has written this message on social media. He reportedly wrote a similar text on Russian streamer Aleksandr "Nix" Levin’s Twitch chat, after Virtus.Pro was disqualified from the DPC 2021/22 Tour 2 Playoffs.

However, the organization is yet to make an official statement on the matter. AFK Gaming has reached out to Virtus.Pro for comment and will update the article if/when we receive a response.

Gpk has been part of the Virtus.Pro organization since November 2020 and played a pivotal role in its continued success through 2020-21. He proved to be a key factor in helping the organization secure a 5th-6th place finish at The International 2021, winning $1.4M USD in the process.

Despite the signs pointing towards a possible departure, fans will have to wait for official confirmation from the Virtus.Pro organization or the Dota 2 Major Registration page for confirmation on the same.

At the moment, he is still officially a part of the Virtus.Pro organization.
