Virtus.pro withdraw from IEM Rio 2023
Virtus.pro announced via their official website that the roster will miss the upcoming IEM Rio 2023.
We believe that in the current shape, participation in the tournament will not bring satisfaction to either the team or the fans. Therefore, we are committing to enhanced training.
Virtus.pro was one of the teams, which received the invites to the tournament in Brazil based on the ESL world ranking. According to the unveiled seeding, the team made it to Group A, in which they had to debut in a match against NIP.
However, amidst the poor results and the uncertainty about the fifth player, Virtus.pro decided to withdraw from the event and focus on practicing.
IEM Rio 2023 will play out from April 13-23 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In the near future, the organizers will announce the team which will take Virtus.pro's spot.
