Now that the dust has settled after The International - the biggest Dota 2 competition in the world - Virtus.Pro has revealed that Pavel '9pasha' Khvastunov will be leaving their roster "via mutual agreement", and he's moving to NaVi.
What's more is that head coach Arseniy 'ArsZeeqq' Usov is also leaving the side too, experiencing success in competitions like the Kuala Lumpur Major with the team.
"Pasha is a true veteran and one of the most respected players of CIS Dota," said general manager Roman Dvoryankin. "I can hardly imagine VP without him, but sooner or later everything comes to an end. We are endlessly grateful for Pavel's contribution to our success and wish him the best of luck in NaVi. Special thanks to our coach - even as ArsZeeqq faced constant pressure from the community, his positivity and dedication never faded. His Chongqing performance against PSG.LGD will remain in our hearts forever."
"Those were awesome three years I will never forget. We showed the entire world that a CIS team can play great Dota. Huge thanks to all our fans! I am eager to face new challenges in NaVi. See you at the tournaments," 9pasha adds.
