VP makes preparations for upcoming major.

With the first major of the new DPC Season scheduled for November, a number of Dota 2 teams continue to make changes in preparation. So far we've seen Team Liquid and Alliance have their entire rosters leave both organizations. We've also seen some teams make some rather drastic moves on their rosters. TNC Predator, for example, agreed to let Carlo "Kuku" Palad go with Evil Geniuses making the decision to bench Syed “SumaiL” Hassan.

This time around we look at the roster changes for powerhouse We also take a peek at what two other Dota 2 teams are doing to their lineup.

VP has been one of the Dota 2 teams that had an excellent performance heading to TI9. The team finished the last DPC Season in second place. However, fans were surprised with the changes made to the team after TI9. The first major move was Pavel "9pasha" Khvastunov making the decision to leave and join Natus Vincere. There was also Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev who went to join Evil Geniuses. The bad news, so to speak, hasn't stop there as the team put Vladimir "RodjER" Nikogosyan on inactive status.

That leaves Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko and team captain Alexey "Solo" Berezin. The organization has announced that Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok has officially joined the team with Egor "epileptick1d" Grigorenko serving as a stand-in. VP went on to say that they are going to announce the fifth player on the roster soon.

These changes mean that VP is preparing to join the Chengdu Major, a change from its previous announcement of initially not joing the first major. In relation to the status of epileptick1d, VP said in a statement that the team is holding off on a final decision until after the results of the Qualifiers.

Gambit Esports

During the last DPC Season, Gambit almost made it to getting an invite to TI9. The team had another shot through the Qualifiers, but was eliminated during the Group Stage. After TI9, Gambit made the decision to put Alexander "Immersion" Hmelevskoy on inactive status and he has since joined Positive Guys. Meanwhile, Nikita "Daxak" Kuzmin and Vasily "AfterLife" Shishkin have been rotated to substitute status. That left Danil "gpk" Skutin and Artsiom "fng" Barshack. The team did add Kiyalbek "dream`" Tayirov first, followed by Maxim "Shachlo" Abramovskikh and Danial "XSvamp1Re" Alibaev.


As a team, EHOME didn't have a good performance during the last DPC Season. The team even failed to qualify for The International 2019. In this latest round of changes, Luo "Ferrari_430" Feichi made the decision to leave the team. Yang "NeverEnd" Pu has been put on inactive status and is expected to join another team on load. That leaves Zhang "Faith_bian" Ruida, Zhao "XinQ" Zixing, and Zhang "y`" Yiping. The good news is that the team has seen Malaysian player Cheng "vtFαded" Jia Hao join the team at position 1. Rounding off the roster is Tang "897" Zhiru.

With the Qualifiers for the Chengdu not yet starting, expect more changes to come. Which team do you think is set to make the next big change?
