After the shocking 1-day-stay at Team Empire Dota 2, Ilya “Illidan” Pivcaev left the club in search of a more suitable adventure since he got tired of competitive scene once again. The team quickly found a replacement to work with the roster as a stand-in: the Ukrainian Maksim "7jesu" Senchynevich made his debut in the team and impressed both fans and opponents.
He took the MVP nomination on June 27th matchday against NO SORRY, where Empire finished the match in a 2:0 fashion.
7jesu was benched by Mind Games, who were competing at Winline Insight and DPC Eastern Europe. The 18-year-old carry started his career in 2019, joining Team Empire only in December 2021.
