Last month, Pure was fired from Virtus.Pro for drawing the letter 'Z' (a symbol of support for Russia's invasion of Ukraine) on the minimap during an official DPC match.

In one of the most surprising roster shuffles of the season, Entity has signed Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko as its new carry player, ahead of Tour 3 of the Western European 2021-22 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC). Pure's addition completes the Entity roster after Remco "Crystallis" Arets left the lineup to join Team Secret, earlier this season.

The post-Stockholm Major 2022 Dota 2 roster shuffle continued today with Pure settling on his new home, Entity, after his contract with Virtus.Pro was terminated about a month ago. After the signing was officially announced, Entity’s management issued a statement explaining its decision to sign Pure.

Before being released from Virtus.Pro, Pure had some respectable performances with the Virtus.Pro organization. The team managed to secure a third place finish in the Eastern European DPC 2021/2022 Tour 1: Division I and a second place finish in the Eastern European DPC 2021/2022 Tour 1: Regional Final.

Since this is going to be Pure’s first stint in the Western European DPC, it will be interesting to see how he fares in a new region.

Entity Gaming’s new roster after Pure’s signing is:

  • Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko

  • Daniel "Stormstormer" Schoetzau

  • Tobias "Tobi" Buchner

  • Vladislav "Kataomi`" Semenov

  • Dzmitry "Fishman" Palishchuk

Last month, Pure was fired from Virtus.Pro for drawing the letter 'Z' (a symbol of support for Russia's invasion of Ukraine) on the minimap during an official DPC match. The incident had led to the player and his team being disqualified from the Eastern European DPC Tour 2 Regional Playoffs.

Many in the Dota 2 community including Jonathan "Loda" Berg and Andrii "ALWAYSWANNAFLY" Bondarenko had criticized Pure’s actions during the DPC game. Even popular streamer Félix “xQc” Lengyel stated that his actions were “Yikes” and added that politics shouldn’t be a part of video games.

Note: Entity is a client of AFK Gaming
