Crazy, Illidan, KSi, ARS-ART, and NS at The International 2013.

Virtus.pro (VP) is a Russian e-Sports organization founded in 2003.

History

Virtus Pro's DotA divison was once considered the best in the world, which included Vigoss, ARS-ART, NS, LighTofHeaveN, Jolie, and M.Admiration at different points of time. They are most notable for winning MYM Prime Defending three times in a row.

Virtus Pro announced their entrance to the Dota 2 scene with the recruitment of Russian veteran NS[1] and longtime German star KuroKy[2]. They also later added on Santa[3], Azen[4] and finally Dread as captain[5]. However, before the qualifier matches for The International 2012, Dread and Azen were removed from the team and KuroKy later left of his own accord.

In September 2012, Virtus Pro picked up KSi, Crazy, and Illidan to fill out the empty slots in their roster. They also picked up an all-female team.

In March 2013, Santa left the team.[6] Later that month, ARS-ART was announced as a replacement.[7]

In August 2013, KSi, Crazy, and Illidan were removed from the team, presumably due to a poor performance at The International 2013.[8] Later that month, Virtus Pro added LighTofHeaveN, Goblak, and God.[9][10] ARS-ART also left the team and was replaced by Resolut1on.[11]

In September 2013, Goblak and Resolut1on left the team, while ARS-ART came back.[12]

In October 2013, Solo joined the team for a short period of time.[13] He was removed from the roster in November 2013.[14][15]

In November 2013, NS retired from competitive Dota, and long-term stand-in blowyourbrain was removed. Illidan and JOTM from Russian team Poseidon were brought on as stand-ins.[16]

In December 2013, LighTofHeaveN left the team, and Illidan was promoted to a full-time member.[17]

In January 2014, NS decided to come out of retirement and rejoined the team.[18][19]

In August 2014, ARS-ART and Illidan leave Virtus.Pro.[20] Later that month, NS leaves the team and yol, Bzz, and Sedoy join.[21]

In September, Virtus.Pro pick up NVMI as VP.Polar.[22]

In October, Goblak leaves VP.Polar to join Natus Vincere.[23]
