One day before the end of the roster drop lock, a SEA team has officially announced the addition of iceiceice, Black^, xy-, NutZ, and Jabz.
Daryl “iceiceice” Koh’s new Singapore-based team was among the major developments in the post-TI Fall Shuffle, and the team looks all set to face the best in the business. Titled as Team Faceless, the line-up will feature iceiceice teaming up with former teammates Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier and Toh “xy-” Wai Hong. The team will be making its debut in the ROG Masters later this month.
Team Faceless’ roster changes in order of position:
Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao, who happens to be a celebrity in the Dota 2 scene and was the carry of Team Secret, has officially announced his joining a new squad, Team NP. Famous American players are also teaming up with him, such as Avery “SVG” Silverman, Arif “MSS” Anwar, Theeban “1437” Siva and last but not least, former Team Secret coach Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling.
A formation of a new “organization” was already in the works by EternaLEnVy, shown in an episode of “Hot Pants”, hosted by “SirActionSlacks”. On August 20, EternaLEnVy parted ways with Team Secret and had just recently announced that he would play on Team NP as Position 2.
None other than Aui_2000 will play the carry role for Team NP. After the team’s Manila Major slump, Aui_2000 was released from Evil Geniuses. Aui_2000 only watched TI6 as Team Secret’s coach, since he didn’t have any team.
SVG will take the support role in Team NP. In late 2015, Avery “SVG” Silverman showcased his skills and was among the best four players in NA. He was left teamless following the recent roster shuffle, after securing an impressive 3rd place in TI6 as the coach of the Team EG.
And finally, the last piece of the roster of Team NP will be 1437‘s return as a pro player. He is among the veterans of Dota 1 and has also coached two teams.
Team NP’s roster in order of position:
The roster of Team Fnatic is now officially complete. For the upcoming Fall Major season, the Malaysian-based squad will include Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho, Nico “eyyou” Barcelon, and Marc Polo “Raven” Luis Fausto. Both regionally and internationally, the players mentioned above are veterans. With an impressive run through the brackets, Fnatic placed 4th at TI6.
The new roster will debut in just a matter of days during the Mineski Pro Gaming League in Kuala Lumpur, 9-11th September.
Esports still have a long way properly to make a mark on traditional sports, but the fortification of the games should go to the some of the players. The players have not only promoted the respected gaming titles to the world, but have also paved the way and set benchmarks for future generations to come.
“f0rest” has an extra high tack on his resume. Not only is he unarguably the greatest Counter-Strike player of all time, but he’s also carried his team, Ninjas in Pyjamas, to become one of the most dominant teams in eSports of all time. Since the launch of Counter Strike: Global Offensive, NiP was able to go on an astonishing record of 192 wins and 22 losses, according to the analysis of HLTV.org. They didn’t manage to lose a single LAN game until April, eight months after organized play began. You can watch f0rest on Twitch:
Although many phenoms came before him, Ukraine’s Danil “Dendi” Ishutin is possibly the biggest star in Dota 2 when it matters most. Since winning The Invitational in the year 2011, its inaugural year, Dendi and his Na’Vi team have performed exceptionally well in almost every competition they qualified for. They’ve earned 22 gold medals in that period. You can catch him live on his stream:
“Faker” is probably the best LoL player in the world right now. In October of 2013, Faker lifted the League of Legends World Championship as a member of SK TelecomT1 K.
SKT K and SKT S came to merge in 2014 and Faker became a member of an integrated SKT T1. SKT T1 quite surprisingly failed to qualify for the League of Legends World Championship 2014. In the 2015 World Championship Series, took the title, only losing one game in the grand finals for a record making 15–1 throughout the series. Faker and his staff kicked off the year of 2016 Championship by winning the LoL Champions Korea Spring. Catch the League of Legends powerhouse on twitch via:
