Virtus.pro’s star Mareks “YEKINDAR” Galinskis and Timur “buster” Tulepov have been benched. On its official website, Virtus.pro stated that the team is open to transfer bids for both players.
According to the club, the reason for the roster change was the team’s recent tournament performances, when they “fell below the expectations of the fans, management, and their own.” Separately, it was announced that YEKINDAR will be unable to continue playing for Virtus.pro due to a variety of factors, including the international situation.
Before PGL Major Antwerp 2022, information regarding Galinskis’ likely resignation from Virtus.pro surfaced. Later, journalist Richard Lewis stated that the Latvian would continue his career in NAVI.
The reason for buster’s removal, according to the notice on the Russian organization website, is that “He needs a new challenge, while we need fresh ideas about the game.“
Current Virtus.pro roster:
- Dzhami “Jame” Ali
- Aleksei “Qikert” Golubev
- Evgeniy “FL1T” Lebedev
- Dastan “dastan” Aqbaev (Coach)
Virtus.pro stated in a message to the community that the new players have already been picked and would be released soon.
