Since the end of The International 5, VP often gets bad results in several tournaments, they have to settle for finishing in the top 8 at the Frankfurt Major and only able to stay in the top 12 in the Shanghai Major. Their roster had undergone a change after a bad performance in Shanghai, but that was not enough, VP was even more impressed by failing to qualify for the Manila Major and The International 6.
