After being recently featured as a standin multiple times Rox.KIS confirmed today the news that Alexei 'Solo' Berezin is now part of the RoX.KIS team again after the departure of Roman 'Scandal' Sadotenkov who joined the team towards the end of last year after he parted ways with Team Empire.
The news also confirms that the tournament bans that were in place for the match fixing scandal that Solo was part of in 2013 have now been lifted as well.
RoX.KIS manager Denis 'PoDoX' Pestrecov commenting on the departure of Roman 'Scandal' Sadotenkov:
"Hello everyone. Recently, the results of our Dota 2 team went on decline. During a discussion about problems and the ways to fix them conflict arose in the team, which eventually became critical. As a result, Roman 'Scandal' Sadotenkov decided to leave the team. During his time in the team, Scandal showed himself as a competent and a responsible player that heavily contributed to our victories. We thank Scandal and wish him success in his future endeavours. Meanwhile, we will try as hard as we can and show our best to not disappoint our fans."
RoX.KIS manager Denis 'PoDoX' Pestrecov commenting on the arrival of Alexei 'Solo' Berezin:
"Many of you guessed correctly, Alexey Solo Berezin is our fifth player. The situation developed the way that Solo's desires completely match the goals of our team - to work hard and to beat the best Dota 2 teams out there. Many are wondering if Solo is banned from any tournaments. You already partially know the answer to that question: Solo played on Starladder for team Relax, he played on MLG T.K.O. and D2CL as a stand-in for our team. The organizers of most European and American tournaments, that I have contacts with, confirmed that any bans were lifted and they have nothing against Solo playing in their tournaments. Lastly, I don't want to talk about out perspectives and plans, let our results speak for us."
