RoX.KIS (Russian Society of Cybersport Kaspersky Internet Security, Russian: "Российское Общество Компьютерного Спорта"), or RoX, is a Russian multigaming e-Sports organization.
History[edit | edit source]
In January 2013, RoX.KIS picked-up their first Dota 2 squad Chlamydia psittaci consisting of BzzIsPerfect, STALIANER, hardEEv-, yol, Sedoy.
In March 2013, Rox.KIS and 3D!Clan began to exchange players between them. Firstly, STALIANER and Sedoy left the team to replace Sharfik and ServAAA from 3D!Clan. A few days later, Sharfik joined RoX.KIS and Dread followed him. The changes did not stop there: after just 10 days, Sharfik left the team and was quickly replaced by Solo.
Later in March, after playing as a stand-in for a few days, VANSKOR replaced hardEEv- as the hard support role.
On June 14, 2013, Solo, BzzIsPerfect, Dread, yol, and their stand-in "dnq" played a game against zRAGE in SLTV StarSeries Season 6 after which the participating players in RoX.KIS were implicated in throwing the game for personal profit. Alexei "Solo" Berezin placed a bet against his own team on a real-currency gambling site, and the StarLadder organization ruled that his teammates in the game were complicit. The RoX.KIS organization was banned from participating in StarLadder for one year. BzzIsPerfect, Dread, yol, and dnq were banned from SL matches for 3 years. Solo was banned for life. VANSKOR did not participate in the game and was not implicated.
The joinDOTA organization, in response, followed StarLadder in extending all relevant bans to leagues and tournaments organized by them.
Solo later admitted that he placed the bet in question through his girlfriend's account. After admitting this to the RoX.KIS organization, Solo was removed from their roster due to unsportsmanlike conduct on June 21. After some deliberation, StarLadder's ban against RoX.KIS and their team was lifted on the condition that they no longer play with Solo, who remained permanently banned.
Later in June, RoX.KIS added TpoH to their roster as their fifth player.
In September 2013, Nexus and Sedoy joined the team, while TpoH was removed.
In May 2014, RoX.KIS release their Dota 2 Squad.
