Dota 2: Alliance Release Fata- and 33
After staying together for several months, the post-TI 9 roster now goes through a roster change.
In the last couple of days, the professional Dota 2 changed dramatically. Instead of the much-loved LAN events that we’re used to, every organization is starting to host online tournaments and leagues due to the COVID-19 pandemic that’s taken over the world.
One of the teams that played in some of the recent events was Alliance. Even though they’re considered to be one of the best teams in the world, the team struggled to achieve much. That’s why it doesn’t come as a surprise that the EU powerhouse decided to make a roster change.
What happened after the new roster?
In the beginning, Alliance looked very strong. Even though they’ve only played together for a couple of weeks, they were able to win most of their matches. As a result, the TI 3 winning organization quickly became one of the top teams in Europe.
However, after the initial hype, the team has slowly become somewhat stagnated, which reflected on their results. In order to resolve this issue, the team decided to part ways with Adrian “Fata” Trinks and Neta “33” Shapira.
According to Linus “Limmp” Blomdin, “these decisions are never fun to make but we feel like we need to switch things up to be able to grow further”. Loda said that he’s is very thankful for everything that these two players did for the club. However, “the competition in Dota 2 is ruthless, even though our results have been good, we are now making these changes to further close the gap to the absolute top”.
There was no information in the official release about the two new players that will be joining the team. So, the current roster of Alliance looks like this:
- Nikolay “Nikobaby” Nikolov
- Linus “Limmp” Blomdin
- Simon “Handsken” Haag
There should be more information about the two new players soon. So, if you don’t want to miss it, be sure to follow us on our social media accounts.
Also, there are a lot of cool online events right now, so definitely check them out. Although they might not bring the same thrill as a LAN event, at least we still get to see the best teams in the world there.
