Barely a week into the new year and already lots of roster movements for the Dota 2 scene in the CIS region. The biggest one would have to be HellRaisers managing to grab Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok. Two other teams, Team Unique and B8, also made some rather big moves.

A New Year's Resolut1on

Prior to joining HellRaisers, Resolut1on was part of before being put on an inactive status back in September 2019. He has actually been part of various teams and has a good background when it comes to TI. For example, he was part of the Digital Chaos team that took 2nd place during TI6. He also managed to join both TI7 and TI8, though with different teams.

After Resolut1on, HellRaisers signed Zaur "Cooman" Shakhmurzaev. This only brings the roster to four, so they need one more member to complete the team.

Just in Time

Back in early November, Team Unique announced that it was closing down its Dota 2 division. It wasn’t a permanent decision as the organization said that they intend to restart the team if and when the new DPC season starts. You can read more about that here.

The thing is, there's a new DPC season about to start. While the previous roster became free agents, they were not signed on. Instead, the entire roster of NOVA was signed. They’re actually part of the organization and this only means they’re now on the main roster.

A New B8

There’s also some good news, if you can call it that, to fans of Danil "Dendi" Ishutin. The team that he founded hasn’t been doing well as expected in many tournaments. Fortunately, it appears he has some plans in place. In addition to Dendi, the only other remaining member was Enis "5up" Elfki. B8 has signed on three members of Midas Club, a Dota 2 team from South America.

B8 didn’t stop there as it also signed Filipe “Astini” Astini, the coach of Midas Club. Hopefully, with these new team members, B8 would finally manage to make a dent in the Dota 2 esports scene in the CIS region.

What do you think? Is the CIS region ready for the new DPC season?
