Overview[edit]

Vega Squadron is an European professional gaming organization formed on July 10th, 2012 and headquartered in Moscow, Russia. They were mostly known for their Starcraft II team, but also had esports divisions in Dota 2, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. They focused on Dota 2 in 2015 but now also have rosters in CS:GO and League of Legends.

Vega Squadron is one of the very few teams that didn't change its roster after The International 2015, despite losing as early as the wildcard bracket to the eventual runner up, CDEC Gaming. Later, they won the first big LAN tournament after TI5, ESL One New York 2015.
