Virtus.pro make last minute change before elimination match

The reigning Major Champions have called in their stand-in David "n0rb3r7" Daniyelyan for the match against MOUZ.

It is desperate times at Virtus.pro, who has resorted to an unusual move in the middle of the EU RMR tournament. Aleksandr "⁠KaiR0N-⁠" Anashkin has been replaced by David "n0rb3r7" Daniyelyan before their match later today against MOUZ after some lackluster results.

- Young players do not immediately adapt to the pressure of LAN events, especially important ones like RMR. Therefore, David will replace Alex today, Nikolai Petrossian, CEO of Virtus.pro explained in a press statement on Twitter.

David "n0rb3r7" Daniyelyan was part of the team (then called Outsiders), that won the Rio Major last year, but the Armenian was benched shortly after in favor of Aleksandr "⁠KaiR0N-⁠" Anashkin. Now all eyes are on "n0rb3r7", who has not played an official match since the end of last year.

Virtus.pro will face MOUZ later today at 14.45 (CEST) at the EU RMR. The loser of the match will miss the Paris Major.
