ex-DreamEaters signed by Hard Legion
A former member of DreamEaters, who left the Russian club with a scandal in early October, joined Hard Legion, an esports organization founded by the popular video blogger Alexei "Hard Play" Baranov.
Svyatoslav "svyat" Dovbakh's team announced the unilateral termination of contracts with DreamEaters on October 8. The reason for this decision was regular delays in payment of salaries and prizes to players, as well as negative relations between the parties, which worsened due to the decision of the club's management to fire coach Alexander "MechanoGun" Bogatyrev. In turn, Anton Vinogradov, CEO of DreamEaters, said that the squad should compensate for the financial support provided to the team in preparation for StarLadder Major 2019, otherwise the organization will prevent players from playing at the tournaments.
It is also notable that the team was on a brink to be signed by Virtus.pro, this has been reported by Overdrive.

Under the aegis of Hard Legion the Russian team will debut at the DreamHack Open Rotterdam 2019. The team will start their way to the tournament in the same group as AVANGAR, Heroic and Besiktas.
