HellRaisers announced today the departure of Andrey “Dread” Golubev and Daniil “MeTTpuM” Gileev after the team failed to qualify for The Frankfurt Major.
“Reasons are exclusively due to the results of the team, and not because of any individual. I do not believe that “it” was the only way out of this situation, it’s not my choice. It’s hard to take it all because Andrey and I began at the same time. And so as you get attached to someone, it’s always the hardest part. But it turns out that sometimes you need to move on. I hope our paths will cross again. The team will continue training with their eyes set on the results that await and our fans deserve. ”
– Valentine “valentiNich” Kravchenko, Team Manager
The team is already seeking active replacements and moving forward and plans of Dread and MeTTpuM have not been released.
The news comes on the heels of a enigmatic tweet from well known SLTV admin, Project Manager and Star Series Host Andrey “x3m4eg” Grygoriev linking himself to a new team including Dread and Alexander “XBOCT” Dashkevich

Na’Vi was quick to respond that the tweet was not serious and have denied the rumors of Dread and XBOCT’s new team and nothing has been confirmed about rumors of XBOCT leaving Na’Vi.

HellRaisers had a disappointing performance during the TI5 European Qualifiers, where they placed last in their group, with 3 draws, one loss, and a total of only 3 points.
In mid June, HellRaisers announced that they had parted ways with Ivan “gorec” Kartankov and Artyom “Artes” Gorobey, due to “internal conflicts”.
On September 4th, they announced that their new Dota 2 team would include Daniil “MeTTpuM” Gileev and Maksim “Shachlo” Abramovsky. The team has been participating in numerous qualifiers and tournaments since, making their way back towards the top of the CIS scene.
