Team Empire parts ways with XBOCT

Today we are sad to say goodbye to Alexander «XBOCT» Dashkevich. Alexander joined our team in the late November, almost after his departure from Natus Vincere. At that time Team Empire were performing badly and were seeking for a strong player to play in Game Show Global eSports Cup.

XBOCT accepted teams offer and played for Team Empire as a standin in Vilnus. The team outdid themselves and performed well, and afterwards won the entire thing in LAN Finals which were held in Moscow. All that time XBOCT was playing amazingly, just as we all knew him to.

His further stay with Team Empire marked his role change: XBOCT switched to hardlane and the new carry for Team Empire was ALOHADANCE. That was the line-up until today. We can say that this roster had its ups and downs: underperforming at WCA 2015 and Major qualifier, and at the same time qualifying to ESL One Manila, DotaPit and winning at BTS Europe #2.

Despite his new role, XBOCT always played his best, especially on his fearsome  Faceless Void. However, team performance wasn’t stable and after some recent results, team took a hard decision to change the roster.

We can’t thank XBOCT enough for this months he was a part of Team Empire. He is a true legend of Dota 2 and a professional, who takes the game very seriously.

Our new roster will be playing in DotaPit League LAN Finals, and will be announced closer to its start.

Dmitriy «Korb3n» Belov — dota 2 manager:

«I want to thank Alexander for his enormous contribution in our recent victories, good sense of humor and stress resistance. I wish him only the best in his future, it was quite a ride with the legend which is XBOCT».

Он сам ушёл или его кикнули? Если кикнули, то это ваша большая ошибка

Вообще непонятный кик. Хвост показал себя довольно неплохо. Один турнир взяли, на два прошли

ребят, а по какому критерию идет отбор в команду и как заслужить место в Империи, если ты не хвост?
