Team Secret announced a roster change after a disappointing performance in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023. Armel “Armel” Tabios, Fnatic’s former Filipino star player, will debut in the midlane instead of Miroslav “BOOM” Bičan. The position 4 role will be played Daniyal “yamich” Lazebnyy, a Russian player who was part of Virtus.Pro last year.
Team Secret Announces Roster Change Following Unsatisfying Results.
On March 7th, Team Secret announced the departures of Roman “Resolut1on” Fomynok and Bqyt “Zayac” Emiljanov. Resolut1on’s offlaner position will be played by the former midlane player BOOM.
Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, Team Secrets captain, recently spoke about this roster change and the new members:
“Yamich is a young Dota player who has not yet achieved his success and I hope to make it a reality. I have great confidence that he has the capabilities of being a star player. Armel has been a dominant mid laner his whole career. He will bring a strong x-factor to the team since he comes from a different region. I believe he is hungry for success and will achieve it with us. I believe with Yamich and Armel by our side, we've got the right tools to get back into the shape our fans want to see us. Thank you for your continuous support through the ups and downs.”
Team Secret's new roster includes the following members:
- Remco “Crystallis” Arets
- Clement “Puppey” Ivanov
- Armel “Armel” Tabios
- Miroslav “BOOM” Bičan
- Daniyal “yamich” Lazebnyy
This new roster change shocked many Team Secret fans, especially after their last year’s performance in The International 2022 (TI11), where TS secured the runner-up position. The recent struggles and losses in DPC Western Europe 2023 resulted in a last-place finish for Team Secret, which was surprising considering the consistency of the former roster.
Besides the team’s captain Puppey, fans cannot wait to see how these new additions will affect Team Secret’s future matches. Armel’s aggressive playstyle in the midlane and the mechanical skills of yamich in position 4 will be on display in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit Tour 2: Division II.
Armel and yamich have joined Team Secret’s roster following the departures of former position 4 player Zayac and offlaner Resolu1on. Yamich will take the role of position 4, while Armel’s aggressive playstyle lands him as a midlane player. Team Secret’s roster change announcement is followed by an unusual and poor performance in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023 Tour 1.
Puppey, the captain of Team Secret, expressed his confidence in the new members of the team for future tournaments.
