Virtus.pro Dota 2 rosters storm Europe and CIS top-3 leaderboards

Virtus.pro Dota 2 rosters storm Europe and CIS top-3 leaderboards
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

During the quarantine, Virtus.pro’s lineups in Dota 2 claimed top-3 in Europe and CIS in winnings, win ratio and trophies.

As the global pandemic geographically limited participation in all events, Europe and CIS have temporarily joined into a single region. Starting from March 1, 2020, Virtus.pro’s first lineup played in 9 series including charity events. After its inception on the 1st of April, VP.Prodigy played in 5.

During the lockdown, Virtus.pro’s first Dota 2 roster claimed $210 000 in winnings, taking the 2nd spot out of all CIS and European teams. The victory in ESL One Los Angeles 2020 — Online contributed the most to that figure —  $60 000. As for VP.Prodigy, starting from April 2020, the cumulative winnings pool reached $149 000, securing the team the third place on the leaderboard. For VP.Prodigy, the biggest payout was the first place in Epic Prime League — $65 000.

Virtus.pro and VP.Prodigy are also among the leaders in claimed trophies. The main roster celebrated victories in ESL One LA and the recent triumph in Parimatch League Season 3. VP.Prodigy enjoyed victories in Gaming World, StayHome Challenge, and Epic Prime League Season 1.

When it comes to win rates, both Virtus.pro rosters are also leading. The main roster played 145 maps with 62% win rate, second — 93 maps with 69% win rate. Only Team Secret are ahead in this metric.

There is also one more obscure and interesting parameter that points to the main roster’s style of play — win rate in games lasting less than 20 minutes.

From 1st March onward, Virtus.pro played 7 such games, winning all of them. Some matches lasted less than 15 minutes. This figure tells us about the team’s aggressive style of play.

Sergey Glamazda, Virtus.pro General Manager: “The lockdown proved to be an interesting timeframe for the organization: we experienced changes inside one roster and simultaneously acquired another lineup where the players barely even met each other live.

Looking at the raw numbers, Virtus.pro’s overall results in Dota 2 seem to be more than enough. However, knowing the inside chemistry of the team, I can safely say that guys expected more and practiced for other results. There were brief moments of victories, but second and third places weren’t enough.

We have the uncertainty of LANs and DPC in general ahead of us, so we’ll have to do our best with what we have now. I’m thankful to all the fans for supporting our teams. Your support brings us energy and certainty, and your constructive criticism gives another point of view on the things we do.”

The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has released a new report which shows the significant growth that esports betting has seen over recent months. The report shows a massive 2992% year-on-year increase in esports betting.

The figures show that while other sectors of the gambling industry have struggled during the pandemic, esports betting has risen significantly. In March 2019, the gross gambling yield for esports betting was just £50,223 ($63,493). 12 months later, in March 2020, when the pandemic was just taking a hold in Europe, that had risen to £1,517,548 ($1,918,541). In April 2020, that then rose further to £3,393,637 ($4,289,767) and increased yet again in May 2020 to £4,616,610 ($5,835,764).

The year-on-year increase from March 2019 to March 2020 was a rise of 2922%, showing that even before the pandemic took hold, esports betting in the UK was a rapidly expanding market. Even then, the increase from March 2020 to April 2020 was still a massive 124% increase in a single month, showing how popular esports betting while traditional sporting events were unable to take place.
