CIS reacts to Odium disbanding and Lil giving up on the region
Image by: Odium

Ilya "Lil" Ilyuk announced the disband of Odium 32 days after its original announcement, also mentioning to possibly moving to play in another region. The situation caused more discussion in the CIS community, some supporting the player, some making fun of it all, including Lil’s former teammate in Virtus.pro.

Vitalii “v1lat” Volochai, CIS caster, host and Maincast founder,  commented on Team Empire player Yaroslav "Miposhka" Naidyonov making a blog parody on Lil’s recent rant.

Lil continues to give an excuse to talk about the CIS Dota. Especially since you don’t really want to talk about the level of play, which hasn’t been this low for so long.

Still, noobs throwing words at each other at the complete bottom of Dota is kinda fun.

Vladimir "Maelstorm" Kuzminov, CIS caster:

I didn’t think that Odium would disband this soon. I think I understand Lil’s feelings well. Everything that doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger. It’s important that it doesn’t actually kill you, figuratively of course.

Rustam “Adekvat” Mavliutov, CIS caster:

I wish Lil luck, apparently it’s too early to be creating your own thing yet, but you still have to play.

P.S: It’s not about the region, in my humble opinion.

Alexey “Lex”Filippov, CIS caster, put Lil's overall demeanor since him being kicked from Virtus.pro eloquently:

Everyone is to blame, but me.

Andrew “Xeo” Yatsenko, esports project manager and producer, saw this as an example of how difficult it is to form your own organization:

Came home, saw that Odium suddenly deceased.
Remembered, that someone was recently telling me that anyone can build an esports organization.
“LIL’d” from that.

Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko, Virtus.pro midlaner and former Lil teammate, is amused by everybody listening to all the excuses:

There’s some kind of trend recently on writing whole BLOGS about how you failed and why. More importantly, people happily eat those excuses up oO. (I’m not firing any shots, it’s all just funny.)

I haven’t seems any blogs from teams that lose TI. A few words, yes, “we lost cause we fucking suck or our opponents were stronger”, or reviewing plays, but this all is completely different. This looks like some kind of comedy, seriously!

Finalized less than a month ago, Odium looked like a confident contender for the Dota Pro Circuit CIS qualifier spots. However, only two weeks into the season, Lil's plans to lead the team long-term met its first challenge after failing to qualify for the season's first Minor and Major both. After suddenly losing three players within a week, the captain gave up on his team.
