As ESL One Germany 2020 heads into its second day of group stage Dota 2 action, HellRaisers have confirmed the signing of a player to their roster – leaving them one short of a full squad heading into their first series.
HellRaisers have seen a year with many changes to their Dota 2 squad, from a new roster being announced towards the end of January all the way through to early September when it seemed as though the team was falling apart. However, that hasn’t stopped the remaining players from battling through events with stand-ins and substitutes. Most recently, the team have utlised infamous CIS player Ilya “Lil” Ilyuk in the position 4 role, helping them to a fifth/sixth place finish at BTS Pro Series Season 3: EU/CIS. Today, via their Twitter account, HR have confirmed that Lil is now a fulltime member of their lineup.
With only a few hours remaining, at the time of writing, before HR get their ESL One Germany 2020 campaign underway, this signing still leaves the team missing one player. The full HR roster is currently:
- Alexander “Nix” Levin
- Arslan “xannii” Shandjanov
- Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov
- Ilya “Lil” Ilyuk
It remains to be seen if Alexey “nongrata” Vasilyev will be taking his stand-in spot alongside the team at ESL One Germany, or if they will confirm another addition in the next hour before they take on Vikin.gg in the first series of day 2 of the event.
