Armand “bOne7” Pittner and Neta “TheCoon/33” Shapira join forces with Prodota Gaming lineup for remainder of Fall Major season, including WCA.

Armand “bOne7” Pittner and Neta “TheCoon/33” Shapira have teamed up with the Prodota Gaming lineup for the remainder of the Dota 2 Fall Major season.
The two notable European teams found themselves an opportune collaboration amidst both teams suffering from post Boston Major qualifier shuffles. Kaipi were knocked out of the Americas Boston Major qualifiers after an intense and grueling three-game grand finals against Elements Pro Gaming. Prodota Gaming advanced to the Americas regional qualifiers only to fail to advance past the group stage.
In an intimate and candid interview with DotaBlast, WehSing “SingSing” Yuen revealed not only his retirement from competitive Dota, but also the disbanding of Kaipi.
In Prodota Gaming, bOne7 will be assuming the position 4 support role left open by Alexandru “ComeWithMe” Crăciunescu, while Neta “33” Shapira will take to the offlane to fill the shoes of Linus “Kefka” Bleckert.
ComeWithMe and Kefka both parted ways with Prodota Gaming immediately following the end of the team’s bootcamp and Boston Major qualifier run.
Prodota Gaming has told DotaBlast that no contracts have been signed with the two new players and the collaboration is in place until the end of the season. Future decisions will be reserved for the next Dota Major registration period.
The mix of Kaipi/Prodota Gaming players will compete under the Prodota Gaming banner for both the Dota Pit Season 5 main qualifiers and WCA 2016 in China later in December – the last of events that Kaipi was participating in. The lineup is also currently competing in PD Cup 12 and WellPlay Invitational 5.
Fans can catch their next match on Sunday, November 13th, at 20:30 CET in PD Cup 12 vs. Power Rangers.
