Resolut1on Leaves HellRaisers to Take a Break From Competitive Dota 2
Popular CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) player, Roman "Resolut1on" Fomynok, has left HellRaisers' Dota 2 roster. The organization communicated about the roster change via social media, saying that it was unfortunate to part ways with such a terrific player. Having joined HellRaisers in January 2021 just before the start of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), Resolut1on leaves the team after nine months of service. He played as the team's captain and initially served as the offlaner, but recently became the carry. Resolut1on will now take a break from competitive Dota 2 according to a statement from HellRaisers' CEO, Aldar "Jamba" Dzhambinov.
Resolut1on to take a break after leaving HellRaisers
With Resolut1on’s departure, HellRaisers’ active roster is down to two players.
Bakyt "Zayac" Emilzhanov
Ilya "Lil" Ilyuk
Zaur "Cooman" Shakhmurzaev also remains on the team, but he was placed as inactive in August 2021.
Resolut1on only achieved middling success with HellRaisers. When the team was reformed before the start of the DPC 2021 with some of the most notable players, it looked promising, but the actual results were rather underwhelming. The team, despite being the favorites, placed third in the DPC's first season and did not qualify for the Upper Division. The team's performance improved in the second season and they eventually finished first. HellRaisers later went on to sadly not qualify for The International 10 (TI10), finishing third in the Eastern Europe (EEU) qualifier.
Throughout this period, the team went through a series of roster changes, an aspect of the team that never appeared to be settled.
HellRasiers' CEO on the departure of Resolut1on said:
“I would like to say a big thank you to Roman for joining our team, taking the role of captain, and going all the way with us through this tough 2020-2021 season.
Unfortunately, Roman decided to take a break and our paths parted. He is an immensely talented and outstanding player and I am sure he will make a great name for himself more than once.
Good luck, Roma. We'll be rooting for you.”
With Resolut1on now taking a break, he will likely return once TI10 concludes and the traditional roster shuffle occurs. HellRaisers, which has only a few players on their current roster for the moment, will also be looking for options as the next DPC season approaches. The team will begin in the Upper Division of the DPC in the next season.
