After the news broke yesterday that Summer’s Rift was dropped from TI5 qualifiers and would be playing in the Open Qualifiers later today, the International announcement page has officially replaced Summer’s Rift with Team eHug.
Team eHug is an eSports organization founded in 2013 with a strong presence in the region’s professional scene.
The organization was privately founded by a group of anonymous Dota 2 fans who wanted to create their own team because of their passion for the game.
Team eHug was originally scheduled to participate in the TI5 Open Qualifiers. Most recently, they were invited to compete in Canada Cup Season 5, where they lost to Wheel Whreck While Whistling, 0:1 ,in the Lower Bracket Round 3. They are currently tied in fourth place for JDL Division 2.1, with four wins and two losses for the season thus far.
