Virtus Pro's DotA divison was once considered the best in the world, which included Vigoss, ARS-ART, NS, LighTofHeaveN, Jolie, and M.Admiration at different points of time. They are most notable for winning MYM Prime Defending three times in a row.
Virtus Pro announced their entrance to the Dota 2 scene with the recruitment of Russian veteran NS and longtime German starKuroKy. They also later added on Santa, Azen and finally Dread as captain. However, before the qualifier matches for The International 2012, Dread and Azen were removed from the team and KuroKy later left of his own accord.
In September 2012, Virtus Pro picked up KSi, Crazy, and Illidan to fill out the empty slots in their roster. They also picked up an all-female team.
In March 2013, Santa left the team. Later that month, ARS-ART was announced as a replacement.
