HellRaisers welcome Ilya “Illidan” Pivcaev as a trial stand in for the team. The former Virtus.Pro player was most recently playing with Power Rangers on a stand in/trial basis. With his arrival, the squad also seems to have parted ways with Dmitry “UnderShock” Bolshakov. Illidan has already debuted with the team playing carry, moving Ivan “ubah” Kapustin to the support role.

HellRaisers welcome Ilya “Illidan” Pivcaev to the team for a trial period. He will be assuming the carry position, triggering a role swap for Ivan “ubah” Kapustin into the support position that was occupied by Dmitry “UnderShock” Bolshakov.
The team debuted against T.RoX last night in the WePlay League Season 3, taking the victory in a very convincing and seemingly effortless manner.
Тест с ПР окончен. К сожалению, я так и не нашел общий язык со всеми игроками. Завтра попробую себя в новом коллективе.

Ironically, Illidan had just departed Power Rangers, leaving an opening in the team. This space was filled with Dmitry “UnderShock” Bolshakov for their matches against Samurai Champloo in the Game On Tournament.
VirtusPro replaced Illidan with Airat “Silent” Gaziev of Team Empire only a few days before the end of registration window for the Shanghai Major. He had been with the team for eight months. The Russian carry player then went to Elements Pro Gaming for a short period of time before the team had dissolved.
In October HellRaisers were once again subjected to a series of roster changes that had been plaguing the team for an extended period of time.
Andrey “Dread” Golubev and Daniil “MeTTpuM” Gileev parted ways with the organization after the team failed to qualify for The Frankfurt Major.
Dmitry “UnderShock” Bolshakov and Ivan “ubah” Kapustin were the replacements, becoming members in December.
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 had been participating in numerous qualifiers and tournaments since. They took second place in the D2CL Christmas Charity Magic in December.
The team is currently active in Dota Pit season 4, ESL One Manila European Qualifiers, ProDota Cup EU 3 and WePlay League season 3.
