Virtus Pro have announced their first roster change since they picked up the AVANGAR lineup. Timur ‘buster: Tulepov will move to the bench as he takes a short break. The 20-year-old will be replaced by Mareks ‘YEKINDAR’ Galinskis.

The Latvian rifler established himself as one of the rising talents to take note of in the CIS region during his time at pro100, wherein he averaged a rating of 1.11.

YEKINDAR led pro100 to consecutive circuit wins at DreamHack Delhi Invitational 2019 and Qi Banja Luka 2019 by finishing both the events as the highest rated player.

YEKINDAR recently won the FPL EU division for April and will now be raring to get on the server as a part of Virtus Pro, who were seemingly in a rut. It will be interesting to see how this change reflects in their results and performances.

These are not the only changes to take place. Virtus Pro have also added a second coach in Alexey ‘Flatra’ Zlobich, with Maxim ‘MaAd’ Goncharov joining as an analytical psychologist.
