Escape Gaming has announced they are parting ways with their Dota 2 squad.
The current squad was down to three players – Troels “syndereN” Nielsen, Max “qojqva” Bröcker and Adrian “Era” Kryeziu.
Early in November Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann was recruited to replace Lee “Forev” Sang-don on Team Secret.
At the end of December Yazied “YapzOr” Jaradat left the team to join the new squad created and spearheaded by Adrian “FATA” Trinks.
According to Escape Gaming and captain syndereN, the three remaining members will stay together – adding two last players. The rosters are locked on January 9th, less than three days away.
Today we see the departure of our DotA2 squad as they will not be signing a new contract for 2017, instead there will be a new and exciting announcement on 25th January. With the next roster lock coming up SyndereN, Era and Qojqva will be making two new additions to the lineup for the next Major.
Most recently the team has been seen playing with Kalle “Trixi” Saarinen for DreamLeague Season 6 and fans are hopeful for the return of a Fnatic.EU Majority roster including Era, Trixi and Kai “H4nn1” Hanbückers.
The European mix made its debut performance in the EPICENTER Moscow EU qualifiers, with Ludwig “zai” Wåhlberg on board. zai was unable to fully return to competitive gaming at that time, due to school commitments. Instead, the team picked up Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann, an addition that seems to have played perfectly into the mix.
The squad defeated Power Rangers in the EPICENTER Moscow EU qualifier, 3:1, and ultimately finished the wild card series in third place, ending their run before the main event.
Since then, they had maintained a solid presence in the European scene, seizing the wild card spot for TI6 and advancing into the main event, where they eventually placed 13th-16th.
The team has made no roster changes into the Boston Major season but failed to qualify for the main event after being directly invited to the regional qualifiers.
They then went on to take first place in DreamLeague Season 6 League Play and second place in Royal Arena #1 and DreamLeague Season 6.
