Kipspul joins Vega Squadron as new Dota 2 coach 08.09.2017 Author // Konservator

Vega Squadron are pleased to announce our new Dota 2 coach - Murielle "Kipspul" Huisman! This is the first time someone hires a foreign coach in CIS, so we can't wait to see the results of this!

Murielle has experience of working with SEA teams - in 2016 she helped Fnatic to reach 4th place on The International 2016 as an analyst, last season she was coaching  TNC Pro Team that were the first to reach World Championship level in their region. Kipspul has already been signed and is working hard already.

Vega Squadron CEO, Alexey Kondakov:

«I've been following Kips from back when she was Fnatic coach and was impressed by her commitment and dedication! I'm sure Murielle will help our players find the right gameplay so they could reach tier-1 teams list, this is what we're aiming for. Welcome to Vega Squadron!»

Vega Squadron eSports Director, Georgy "drAmer" Faleev:

«Having a coach is not a new thing in the world, more and more teams hire ones for their rosters. We tried to implement this idea in the end of last year, we tried some CIS personalities (ex-pros and not only), but it didn't work out back then.

We wanted to start working with Murielle before the Kiev Major, but there was less than a week befor the qualifiers and we were just scared of ruining everything - it looked like the team found it's game. So, Kipspul left to TNC for half a year, but immediately after her return from the SEA-region, we resumed our negotiations.

Of course experience of working with an English-speaking coach is exciting, but I believe everything will work out in duo with an English-speaking manager. Her hard work and dedication inspire confidence, and the previous teams' results speak for themselves.»

Vega Squadon Dota 2 roster coach, Murielle "Kipspul" Huisman:

«I’m thrilled to announce that I will be coaching the Sharks this season—and humbled by the enthusiasm with which they have received me. This is a dedicated squad with a vast potential. Thank you to the players for having me, and thank you to Alexey and Georgy for all the confidence you have in my capabilities. Last year I had Vega Squadron in my compendium predictions to make TI7. This year I will do everything in my power ensure that they will show up at TI8.»
