Team Faceless will be the replacements for Fnatic in Dota Pit League Season 5 SEA qualifiers as Fnatic have withdrawn from the event.
The Singaporean team featuring Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang and Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier just recently qualified for the Boston Major and Summit 6.
The qualifiers are expected to kick off on November 4th and feature four directly invited teams – Team Faceless, Mineski, Execration and MVP.Phoenix battling it out for the one spot for the main event.
Originally DotaPit had reported ‘roster changes’ as the reason, but quickly recovered that information followed by a statement from Fnatic’s manager, Eric “ReiNNNN” Khor on reddit
It was a misunderstanding between me and the dotapit guys. We have not decided on anything yet. We are just not ready to play the qualifiers at the moment
Fnatic failed to qualify for Boston Major – taking fourth place in the SEA Boston Major qualifiers and falling short of qualifying for the Summit 6.
On September 7th Fnatic completed their roster. Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho, Nico “eyyou” Barcelon and Marc Polo “Raven” Luis Fausto joined the Malaysian based squad for the upcoming Fall Major season. The three known players teamed up with core members of Fnatic Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung and Chong Xin “Ohaiyo” Khoo – both of whom have been playing on the team since June 2015.
The team has invited to participate in ESL One Genting 2017 – and ROG Masters Asian Tournament
