Team Spirit is a CIS Esports team that was formed in 2016. The team is based in Russia and is composed of former World of Tanks players. Team Spirit is one of the leading teams in the CIS region and has won multiple tournaments.

History

Team Spirit is a CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) esports team that was founded in 2013. The team is based in Russia and has players from all over the CIS, including Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan. They are one of the most successful CIS teams, having won multiple tournaments and championships.

Team Spirit's first big win was at the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 3, where they defeated Na`Vi in the finals. This was followed by a win at the World Cyber Arena 2015 European Qualifiers, where they again defeated Na`Vi in the finals.

In 2016, Team Spirit won the ESL One Cologne 2016 CIS Qualifier, defeating HellRaisers in the finals. This qualified them for the main event, where they went on to finish in 9th-12th place.

The team had a successful 2017, winning the SL i-League Invitational Shanghai and the CIS Minor Championship - Boston 2018.

2018 was a tough year for Team Spirit, as they failed to qualify for The International 2018 and had several disappointing results. However, they bounced back in 2019, winning the WePlay! Dota 2 Tug of War: Radiant and finishing in 2nd place at the MDL Disneyland Paris Major.

Team Spirit is one of the most successful CIS teams and has a history of winning against some of the best teams in the world. They are a force to be reckoned with and will continue to be one of the top teams in the CIS region.

Controversies

Since its inception, the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) Esports team has been mired in controversy. The team was originally formed to compete in the International Esports Federation (IeSF) World Championships but was later disqualified due to the IeSF's rules stating that only national teams could compete. This sparked a debate within the CIS region over whether or not the team should be allowed to compete, as many felt that the team was not truly representative of the CIS region.

The team was later allowed to compete in the World Cyber Arena (WCA) tournament but was again met with controversy when it was revealed that two of the team's members were not from the CIS region. This led to many calling for the team to be disqualified, but the team ultimately went on to win the tournament.

The controversies surrounding the team have led to many questioning the legitimacy of the CIS region in the world of esports. However, the team has remained popular among fans and continues to compete in tournaments.
