Vega Squadron return to Dota 2
After a stretch of uncertainty, Vega Squadron is returning to Dota 2, though it may not be in the fans might expect.
Vega Squadron has announced the acquisition of the Team Lithium Dota 2 roster, officially closing the book on the recently released MVP.Revolution team. This marks the CIS organization’s departure from its home region, as the new roster is solidly European.
Vega Squadron is one of the largest esports organizations in Russia, sponsoring players across Counter-Strike, Hearthstone, League of Legends, and more. The brand has maintained a steady presence in Dota 2 since 2014, with Semion "CemaTheSlayeR" Krivulya captaining the team for much of that time. But Vega’s Dota 2 teams have been unable to achieve consistent success over the last four years.
After failing to qualify for The International 2018, a heavily retooled roster without CemaTheSlayer was revealed. That new lineup was released just weeks later, however, after failing to qualify for the Kuala Lumpur Major, putting into doubt the organization’s future in Dota 2.
While the acquisition of Lithium marks a new chapter for Vega, it could be the best yet in the organization’s history. Though the squad lacks major name value, bringing together five European journeymen including former Ad Finem standouts Verros "Maybe Next Time" Apostolos and Omar "Madara" Dabachach, the new crew has looked solid to this point. Competing in a wide open EU regional field, the group has a strong chance of earning spots in larger Dota 2 tournaments both in and out of the Dota Pro Circuit.
The new Vega Squadron will begin competing at the Dreamleague Season 10 Minor. Should the team take first place, it will earn the final spot in November’s Kuala Lumpur Major.
