CIS Dota 2 powerhouse – Just Error – has officially disbanded according to RAMZES666’s. While the team was comprised of top tier players, they failed to show potential at the EPIC League, which concluded on December 14, 2020, where Virtus.pro taking home $200,000. The following day, the team disbanded.
Alexey “Solo” Berezin, Vladimir “No[o]ne” Minenko, and Bakyt “Zayac” Emilzhanov had been on the lookout for an opportunity after leaving Virtus.pro in November after a solid 4 years. The trio joined Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev in this triumphant endeavour named Just Error on November 11. RAMZES was benched from the EG Dota 2 squad earlier that week. Syed “SumaiL” Hassan was the final player to join the squad.
Just Error had not planned to participate in the EPIC League initially.
“We did not plan to play Epic League, but in the end we made the decision to play, and, perhaps, this can be called a wrong decision,” RAMZES said in his VK statement. He attributed the team’s failure to the language barrier, time zone differences, ping, preparation, and the now aged 7.27 patch, which every other squad had a handle on as a team.
According to RAMZES, “At the end of November, we received an excellent offer from a large European team that had never had a Dota roster before.” This offer was speculated to be in the ballpark of $100,000 per month for the squad.
Nonetheless, RAMZES made it clear that his goal was to perform well at TI, but the team’s performance in the EPIC League revealed major flaws in their strategy and synergy, prompting him to add, “We did not want to let our new organization down, fetter ourselves with contracts and unnecessary obligations in a situation where we were not 100% confident in ourselves and our teammates. We can say that the story of Just Error is over for now.”
Solo, No[o]ne, and Zayac are currently free agents, while RAMZES666 still appears to be under the EG contract. SumaiL was let go by OG in July this year and has since been without a team except his stint at Just Error.
