Team Winstrike have made it to TI8

Team Winstrike, previously known as FlyToMoon, have successfully nabbed the only spot through the CIS Regional Qualifiers to the main event of the International 2018.

Team Winstrike have qualified for the biggest and most prestigious Dota 2 event of the year, The International 2018, by defeating well-known and stacked teams such as ESPADA, Team Spirit and Team Empire. As one of the two teams to receive direct invites to the Regional Qualifiers of the CIS region, besides Vega Squadron, they proved their worth and showed some unique and impressive plays.

Formed only a few months ago in the mid-season roster shuffle of the Dota Pro Circuit, FlyToMoon (original name) made their mark on the professional scene as one of the strongest teams from the region.

Their most significant and well-known run at a DPC event was at EPICENTER XL, where they placed 3rd, an unprecedented result considering the caliber of teams that participated at the tournament. They defeated in the lower brackets before being eliminated by Team Liquid. Incredible, considering they barely managed to qualify for the event, placing 2nd in the CIS Qualifiers and getting a chance at redemption in the Madness Qualifier. Although they failed to qualify for any other DPC Major or rack up enough qualifying points for the rest of the season, they stayed on the radar for many as a team to watch.

Only a day before they secured their presence at TI8, it was officially announced that FlyToMoon was picked up by Team Winstrike, a Russian organization that also owns a CS:GO team.

Team Winstrike roster:

Russia Airat "Silent" Gaziev
Ukraine Bogdan "Iceberg" Vasilenko
