Mineski brings in new import as former Vega Squadron and Na’Vi pro Mag~ joins team as 6th member
We’re really going multinational now boys.
Team Mineski Dota continues to elevate their multinational status as they reel in a new member, this time, from Ukraine, in the form of the former Vega Squadron star and one of the pioneer members of the famous Natus Vincere Dota 2 squad Andrey “Mag~” Chipenko. Revealed via a Tweet from Mineski team manager Yamyam “Yammerz” Villanueva Yui, Mag~ joins as Mineski‘s 6th member, playing Position 3 and is presumed as a sub for Lee “kYxY” Kong Yang.

Mineski‘s decision to bring in a European import to their already multinational squad which was formerly composed of SEA pros, comes as a surprise to many fans and is considered as an unprecedented move since there have been no prior rumors of any European or CIS pro moving towards the SEA region to compete. Although Mag~ may have recently played for the CIS team Vega Squadron since 2015, he is also known to be one of the pioneer members of the team Natus Vincere during its early days in Defense of the Ancients before being replaced by Danil “Dendi” Ishutin.
