Virtus.pro has unveiled its Wild Rift roster for Icons Global Championship 2022

The latest roster will compete in the Wild Rift EMEA Championship 2022!

Virtus.pro has announced that they will be entering into the Wild Rift roster, by competing in the Wild Rift EMEA Championship 2022 for Season 1 of the Wild Rift Esports scene. Wild Rift EMEA Championship 2022 will take place in the regions of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

Virtus.pro is hailed as one of the most decorated Esports teams in Russia. Founded in 2003, the organization has won six Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major Championships to date. Virtus.pro has finally entered the mobile MOBA territory with the launch of its roster for League of Legends: Wild Rift.

Our roster has both experienced and young players and a coach who are determined to become an elite team and compete on the highest level. They start off in the academy tag VP.Prodigy where we usually test our theories. We can’t rule out the possibility of transferring the squad to the club’s main division. Our current goal is to have a good run in the first season of the EMEA Championship and qualify for the Icons Global Championship 2022.

Sergey Glamazda, CEO of Virtus.pro

Virtus.pro and Wild Rift roster in 2022: Complete list of players

The team will be playing under the organization’s academy division, VP.Prodigy. The team is composed of veteran Wild Rift players who were part of match-winning squads of teams like Nova Esports and Natus Vincere (NAVI).

Players

  • Rustam “Valhalla” Bolurov (Team Captain)- Baron Lane
  • Aleksei “Dante” Sorokin- Jungle Lane
  • Kirill “BowBow” Makarychev- Mid Lane
  • Giorgi “iSector” Chichua- Mid Lane
  • Nikita “imaimagi” Systemyev- Dragon Lane
  • Arthur “SKasH” Ermolaev (coach)- Support Lane

Background

Valhalla and Dante were initially a part of NAVI’s Wild Rift squad. However, Dante shifted to Nova Esports alongside SKasH, before being acquired by Virtus.pro. NAVI is known for its championship titles in tournaments such as the Battle For The Rift – Europe (EU) and the PCS Trophy 2.

Nova Esports won several local tournaments such as The Purge Wild Rift EU Series 3 and 4, Wild Series EU #3, and the Wild Rift EU Knockouts #6. The team’s mid laner, iSector, was a former member of BK ROG Esports before he shifted to Virtus.pro. The team has also won the Wild Rift EU Knockouts #3.

Final Thoughts

With the Virtus.pro roster starting from the Academy division, the team needs to put in extra hours and produce a stellar performance in the upcoming tournaments, most importantly, EMEA Championship 2022.
