Alliance was one of the teams that improved the most during the last DPC season. They started as a tier two team and made their way up, eventually claiming a spot in the biggest tournament of the year – The International 2019.
Despite the success, the Swedish organization decided to part ways with their Dota 2 roster.
The Revival of Alliance
Today we thank our players for 2 wonderful years together and wish them all the best for their next adventure.

After the legendary TI 3 win, Alliance slowly started to fade away. This led to various roster changes throughout the years until Aydin “iNSaNiA” Sarkohi took over the team in 2017. Back then, Loda was also playing in the active roster but that did not last long. He decided to step back and focus more on coaching. This lead to the addition of Max “qojqva” Bröcke, who was one of the top core players at that time.
“Today is a sad day for Alliance because we’re parting ways with a team we love. All the hard work, long nights, happy times, but also devastating defeats. But we are also happy and proud to have gone through this journey together, to have been able to grow with them during such an important part of their careers.”
A New Beginning
The good thing here is that the five players will continue to play together. Whether or not they will be acquired by a new organization is still up in the air though.
In terms of Alliance as an organization, according to the official announcement, they are dedicated to their goal of building a new world-class roster in order to play at the main stage in Stockholm at The International 2010.
There are a lot of players who still have not found themselves a new team. However, only time will tell when will Loda and Co. decide to make the move for a new team. Right now, the TI 3 Alliance roster is taking part in Midas Mode 2.0. Be sure to watch the event because it’s definitely worth it.
