Russian esports organisation Virtus.pro has announced that it will be relaunching its second Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster VP.Prodigy. The current squad has been disbanded, with only coach Vladislav "flash_1" Bykov remaining with the organisation in the hopes of rebuilding.
"Building an academy roster is a matter of trial and error," said Mikhail Artemyev, Virtus.pro CS:GO branch manager in a press release. "When we launched our second rosters we had one fundamental task: providing young players with a chance to improve and show results. We have not managed to reach our desired goals despite signing strong and promising players. The roster has been stagnating for quite some time, hence it is the best decision for all parties involved."
Artemyev continued, saying: "VP.Prodigy will still be a part of CS:GO. We have gained a lot of experience that we will put to use with our new team. With the roster relaunch we are reconsidering our approach to scouting players in terms of age and locations as well as building efficient training systems. Stay tuned for more announcements in the upcoming weeks."
