Virtus.Pro announced that Pavel “9pasha” Khvastunov has left the team as per a mutual agreement and for the foreseeable future, Pavel will continue his career at another CIS squad, Na’Vi. Alongside the announcement of Pavel leaving Virtus.Pro, comes the announcement that Arseniy “ArsZeeqq” Usov, their long-time coach, will also be leaving the Dota 2 esports organization.

The general manager of Virtus.Pro, Roman Roman Dvoryankin, talked about the big changes in the team, explaining that:

Pasha is a true veteran and one of the most respected players of CIS Dota. I can hardly imagine VP without him, but sooner or later everything comes to an end. We are endlessly grateful for Pavel’s contribution to our success and wish him the best of luck in NAVI. Special thanks to our coach – even as ArsZeeqq faced constant pressure from the community, his positivity and dedication never faded. His Chongqing performance against PSG.LGD will remain in our hearts forever.

Pavel “9pasha” Khvastunov comments on him leaving the squad and joining Na’Vi, stating that:

Those were awesome three years I will never forget. We showed the entire world that a CIS team can play great Dota. Huge thanks to all our fans! I am eager to face new challenges in NAVI. See you at the tournaments!

Pavel has been such a staple of the Virtus.Pro squad and at the time of writing, no replacement has been announced.
