As Valve adjusts their formal DPC ratings to refer toward the squad as Virtus.pro, it is seeming more and more probable that Outsiders will participate as Virtus.pro in the League 2022. The Virtus.pro squads participated using that same codename “Outsiders” following the championship’s overwhelming denunciation of the Russian annexation of Ukraine.
The mother business of Virtus.pro, ESforce Investments, was charged with maintaining close links to the Russian government. Their businesses were mostly barred from gaming in 2021 as a consequence. Nevertheless, Virtus.pro looks to be returning to the scene, at minimum for TI11, as had first been mentioned by an anonymous reporter which made media rounds at the time.
Appointing a new CEO: A Change In Dynamics for Virtus.pro?
Shortly after the company declared the arrival of Aram Karamanukyan as the person to take over as CEO and primary shareholder of VP, the DPC webpage underwent a modification. According to reports, Karamanukyan currently owns the firm’s copyright. The exact percentage of Virtus.pro that ESforce investments still control is undisclosed at this time. Despite the fact that Virtus.pro is no more a registered resource on the platform.
Karamanukyan appears to improve the firm’s reputation among the general public. Although nothing is now understood further about entrepreneurs with an Armenian basis, removing Russia as its proprietor would probably improve the firm’s troubled reputation. Particularly in terms of the reality that Armenia is presently the victim of its own unlawful incursion. Azerbaijan at this moment is supported by western nations.
But the ghost of VP’s former proprietors won’t go any time soon. Many responses to Karamanukyan’s introductory tweet asked him to take a position on Russia’s incursion of Ukraine. According to perceived public opinion, this move could prove to be a significant game changer which might in fact positively influence the growth of the firm.
It is unclear whether ESforce Ventures and management company VK had also actually thrown in the towel management of Virtus.pro. Valve has not yet released a comment in the media on Virtus.pro’s attendance at TI11.
