The team plays at ESL Pro League Season 19 next.

Electronic has joined Virtus.Pro as the org replaces Mir on their Counter-Strike roster. Fans should hope for an improvement in the org’s performance after they have had a difficult time in recent months. 

“Virtus.pro is a top team. The core of the roster has won a Major not while ago, and all the players are in their prime and ready for victories right now. We share the same ambitions and goals. Besides, I’m also excited about the idea of playing with Jame, as he’s one of the most unique IGLs in the game. Can’t wait to adapt to my new team and start doing what I came here for — winning trophies.” 

Electronic parts ways with Cloud9

As part of this announcement, electronic parts ways with Cloud9. The player joined Cloud9 in July last year after nearly six years on NAVI. The team had some great results but they were much below their expectations. The team finished 9-12th in most of the events they attended this year including the Copenhagen Major, IEM Chengdu, as well as Katowice (13-16). 

Virtus.Pro will next compete in the ESL Pro League. The ESL Pro League Season 19 kicks off on April 23 and will continue for well over a month. The world’s best teams will compete in this event for their share of the $750,000 prize pool.

Denis "electronic" Sharipov made his mark in the competitive scene as a versatile rifler with an impressive ability to win clutch situations. Electronic rose to prominence during his tenure with Natus Vincere (NAVI), where he played a crucial role in the team's success, including their victory at the PGL Major Stockholm 2021. His partnership with Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev has been particularly notable, together forming one of the most formidable duos in the history of Counter-Strike. His tactical acumen and consistent performance have earned him a reputation as one of the top players in the game.
