American Dota 2 player, Brian “FLUFFNSTUFF” Lee had decided not to release any information until he felt confident about the stability of the team and his placement in it. Although the squad is comprised of lesser known players in contrast to FLUFFNSTUFF’s fame and experience, he feels strong about it and predicts the “team will make a lot of noise in the near future”.
The team and new member FLUFFNSTUFF hope to be able to have a strong presence in the region and successfully compete in various tournaments. According to the team’s official statement, the main goal is set on The International 5:
We’re all excited to see what this lineup can do, and look forward to watching them perform on the lead-up to the next International.
FLUFFNSTUFF’s résumé includes competing in TI2 with teams like compLexity and Team Liquid, 1st place finishes in The Defense Season 2, the Curse Dota 2 Invitational, American Dota League, Bounty Hunter Series America Showdown. FLUFFNSTUFF left Team Liquid one year ago, in March 2014, after public venting regarding the team’s dynamics and performance. Since then, he has made numerous changes to his teams, including two big roster changes for Sneaky Nyx Assassians in less than a year and at least three roster reshuffles for Fire since December 2014. There has been no information regarding the future of Fire with Mike “ixmike88” Ghannam and Bryant “whiteBeard” Lehwald.
