ADVERTISING:It's a huge honor for the organization and me personally to welcome Ivan as our Dota 2 team coach. https://t.co/mJLBoDnP0V— Roman Dvoryankin (@dvoryrom) March 21, 2017
Virtus.pro have been working with Ivan 'Artstyle' Antonov since March 6, when they announced that the support player would be working with the players to help the team prepare for the Major qualifier.
"In a matter of a couple of weeks, Ivan became an indispensable member of our team," said Aleksey 'Solo' Berezin, in a statement on Virtus.pro's announcement. "The guys had been very enthusiastic about his joining us, and we’re glad that ArtStyle will now be working with us on a permanent basis."
Virtus.pro dominated the CIS regional qualifier to become the sole CIS representative at the Major. They beat crushed Natus Vincere 2-0 in the final to qualify.
