OverDrive reveals Aurora's new roster
Insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov has revealed on Twitter Aurora's lineup, which the Russian organization will start the new season with. According to the source, from the initial roster, which was signed in August, only Viktor "Lack1" Boldyrev will continue to represent the team.
Playing alongside Lack1 will be a duo of former forZe members in Evgeny "Norwi" Ermolin and Aleksandr "KENSI" Gurkin, as well as a "graduate" of NAVI's academy team Vladislav "latt1kk" Vydrin and ex-Singularity player Ivan "SELLTER" Miroshnikov.

During the fall, Aurora parted ways with Amin "sugaR" Azimov, Artem "RAiLWAY" Gradovich, and also put Aleksandr "KaiR0N-" Anashkin on the transfer list. The last player to leave the roster was AWPer Evgeny "delus1onn" Plottsov.
According to OverDrive, Aurora will have the following lineup heading into 2023:
Viktor "Lack1" Boldyrev
Aleksandr "KENSI" Gurkin
Evgeny "Norwi" Ermolin
Vladislav "latt1kk" Vydrin
