The Siren of the Golden Five Era Roster

This presence brought comments from the General Manager of Virtus.pro, Roman Dvoryankin. Reporting from the HLTV page, he said he was a little disappointed not to make changes sooner.
“I regret not making changes sooner, stuck with past successes,” said Dvoryankin on the HLTV page.
“Things might have been different if I had been more proactive. Players have to develop more and Kuben is not the one to blame (for the defeats), “added Roman.
Of course this change brings new loads, but the presence of two former AGO Esports players, TOAO and snatchie should bring new abilities.
