HellRaisers is not a new team in the world of competitive video gaming, although its esports beginnings started in CS:GO. Now, the Ukrainian esports organization is back in the competitive Dota 2 scene after being absent for two years.

Interestingly, the team has already recruited incredibly young talents and three of them still have a lot to prove in Dota 2. Ilya “ALOHADANCE” Korobkin and Yaroslav “Miposhka” Naidenov are the only experienced players on the roster at just 22 and 21 years of age, respectively. Here is a rundown of the team’s current roster:

  • Alik “V-Tune”‘ Vorobej
  • Alexander “Nix” Levin
  • Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin
  • Miposhka

ALOHADANCE, in particular, will be making his return to the competitive Dota 2 scene after having a successful career as a full-time streamer. He is best known for flashy plays in roles such as carry and support. There is no doubt that he is the most recognized player on the team, especially after showing the world how stellar his Rubick plays were. Of course, this was during the time when he was still with Team Empire. He is expected to take on the support role in HellRaisers.

In case you did not know, captain Mishposkha was the replacement for ALOHADANCE on Team Empire. During The International 7, Empire was able to obtain a top-eight placing. And despite showcasing a very promising start, the team was eventually forced to go home after CIS giants Virtus Pro eclipsed them.

HellRaisers is expected to compete in the CIS region once again. This year, though, the Dota 2 competition is believed to be tougher than before as Gambit, Vinstrike, and Natus Vincere are joining the race. Keep in mind that these teams have proven to contest the dominance of Virtus Pro in the region.

The organization initially joined the competitive Dota 2 scene back in 2014. However, it was in 2017 when HellRaisers finally had the chance to quality for TI, although they were the first to exit the event after only winning one single game. This forced the esports team to dissolve its roster.
