Sergey Glamazda is no longer the general manager of Virtus.pro. After his departure, this position will be abolished, and the top managers of ESforce Holding will take over control of the organization, according to the official website of VP.
Under the leadership of Glamazda, Virtus.pro entered the top 5 in terms of the amount of prize money earned ($4.4 million), its Dota 2 team took 5-6th place at The International 2021, and VP’s CS:GO roster ranked in the top 10 in the world, along the way taking 6-8th place at PGL Major Stockholm 2021. Also during his reign, the youth direction VP.Prodigy was created and many successful outgoing and incoming transfers were made.
Commenting on his resignation, Sergey thanked Virtus.pro for the experienced emotions, ups and downs, and admitted that he «remembers every victory and every defeat.» In turn, the CEO of ESforce Holding, Nikolay Petrosyan, praised the work done by the former general manager of VP, and explained that he and Glamazda discussed the future of the company and came to the conclusion that it needs a reorganization.
As CyberScore reported, during the Dota Pro Circuit 2021/22 Spring Tour for Eastern Europe, there was a scandal involving Virtus.pro. One of the team members drew a Z symbol on the mini-map, which is associated with support for the war that Russia unleashed in Ukraine.
