Valve renames Outsiders back to Virtus Pro in official Dota 2 ranking

Dota 2 Russian players Danil “gpk” Skutin, Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin, Daniyal “yamich” Lazebnyy, Egor “Xakoda” Lipartiya, and Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev will play under Virtus Pro at the last-chance qualifier for The International 11 instead of using the tag Outsiders.

This is because Valve has replaced the Outsiders name on the official Dota Pro Circuit rankings for VP. The name change comes after the Armenian investor Aram Karamanukyan was appointed the CEO of VP, in addition to owning the organization’s trademark.
