Many Changes in Eastern Europe

After WCG many teams change rosters, and one of the biggest names in Russia, virtus.pro, disbands.

Virtus.pro, one of the top teams in Russia, has disbanded after poor a placing in WCG Chengdu, where they fell out of group stage.

This caused two players, Dmitriy "hooch" Bogdanov and Roman "ROMJkE" Makarov, to leave the team and join with Kazakhstani k23. This left the team with two members, as their former teammate Denis "diNGo" Kolomenskiy left just prior to WCG forcing them to use their manager Konstantin "groove" Pikiner, which many attribute to their poor play in group stage.

Along with this change, CMX.gg, a team which placed phenomenally well in their first WCG appearance, made changes as Johan "F_1N" Kochugov left the team to team up with the now predominantly Russian k23.

They then picked up Alexey "LeX" Kolesnikov from the now disbanded Virtus.pro to fill in for Ruslan "Dober" Shariffylin, who has been having visa problems in the last few international tournaments the team preformed in.

K23 lineup:
Malik "N1ck3L" Sualirov
Dauren "AdreN" Kistaubaev
Dmitriy "hooch" Bogdanov
Roman "ROMJkE" Makarov
Johan "F_1N" Kochugov

CMX.gg lineup:
Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov
Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov
Aleksey "HEL1" Novikov
Ruslan "Dober" Shariffylin
Alexey "LeX" Kolesnikov
