No flashy plays this time around
August 23, 2018
Rodjer never got going against Evil Geniuses as Virtus.pro bowed out of the competition. The usually consistent support just finished with a KDA of 8/16/20.
ANALYSIS
Rodjer tried his luck with Elder Titan in the first game of the series. His rotations netted him two kills and 11 assists. Unfortunately, some of his Echo Stomps and Earthsplitters simply could not hit the mark as VP needed them to swing fights in their favor. In Game 2, Rodjer switched it up with Winter Wyvern. His early sustain helped VP keep the landing stage close. His Winter's Curses in the mid game lacked the oomph to give his team an advantage in the long and winding teamfights.
Shut down by Evil Geniuses
August 23, 2018
Ramzes was outclassed by Evil Geniuses at The International 2018. The young star finished with a KDA of 15/13/12.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes played Necrophos in the first game of the series. He had a terrible time in lane against s4's Pugna due to his high magic damage output. He itemized very defensively, but he still died seven times in the match. He was the worst performing core in terms of hero damage in the lost. In Game 2, he played Ursa in the mid lane against SumaiL's Alchemist. He had a successful laning stage and had a Blink Dagger at the timing mark. His 11 kills were the highest on his team, but as the game went on he was just easily kited by EG.
Outclassed by SumaiL
August 23, 2018
No[o]ne wasn't at his best as Virtus.pro were eliminated by Evil Geniuses. The mid laner finished with a KDA of 9/12/15.
ANALYSIS
He opened up the series with Tiny in the mid lane. No[o]ne managed a pretty good last hit score early against SumaL:'s Storm Spirit. His 12-minute Blink Dagger allowed him to get six kills, but EG were reading his movements way too well throughout the length of the match. In Game 2, N[o]one played out of his comfort zone with Pugna in the safe lane. He was making poor decisions in the laning stage that got him killed often. His 3/8/13 statline in the elimination match was well below expectations.
Can't maintain good form
August 23, 2018
9pasha had a rough series against Evil Geniuses at The International 2018. The veteran finished with a KDA of 11/9/16.
ANALYSIS
9pasha had a forgettable performance with Mirana in Game 1. He was just trying to farm for majority of the game and rarely made tempo plays for his team. 9pasha managed a Manta Style at the 27-minute mark, but that was the only item he ever finished in the loss. In Game 2, he played Tiny, a hero he's had a lot of success with at TI8. This time around he was more impactful, as he was involved in 16 of his team's 34 kills.
Pedestrian performance from the VP support
August 23, 2018
Rodjer wasn't at his best, but Virtus.pro still eliminate Optic. The support finished with a KDA of 12/17/47.
ANALYSIS
Rodjer played the Io in Game 1 of the series. He helped Ramzes secure a decent laning stage but a bad Relocate caused his unnecessary death before the 15-minute mark rolled in. It was an underwhelming Io game for Rodjer since VP were always playing from behind. In Game 2, Rodjer decided to play Dark Willow. He helped secure a good lane for Ramzes. Later on, his crowd control play was perfect for VP. In Game 3, Rodjer stuck with Dark Willow. His early game was forgettable, but he again stepped it up with clutch Terrorize usage once mid game rolled in.

Confirm no roster changes entering the 2017-18 season
August 14, 2017
VirtusPro announced via their official Twitter that they would be making no changes to their roster for the upcoming season.
ANALYSIS
It should come as no surprise that VirtusPro isn't tinkering with their lineup. They have the best squad the CIS region has seen in a long time and arguably the best carry in the world right now. After finishing 5th at The International 2017 and 2nd at the Kiev Major, VirtusPro are happy with their success thus far and think they have room to improve together.
Dota 2
International 2017 invitation confirmed
June 19, 2017
According to the official Dota 2 website, Virtus.pro is among the six directly invited teams to The International 2017.
ANALYSIS
Virtus.pro has been a fearsome competitor for the past year, but apart from The Summit and some smaller CIS events it has yet to claim a first-place finish. At the Kiev Major Virtus.pro took second place after a very close 2-3 loss to OG in the finals. This performance is likely what secured their invite, but a recent win at The Summit 7 made it all but certain.
