As you know, Alliance announced that they would release their Dota 2 team. This was very unexpected, and many people couldn’t really understand why is this necessary but it happened.
What's Next For Alliance?
[A] NEW JOURNEY BEGINS 👊
We are very proud to welcome 3 new additions and 2 returning members to the #ALLFAM 🙌

Just days after that, the Swedish organization revealed its new Dota 2 team. According to the official announcement, their goal for this season is not only to make to TI 10 but to win the tournament on their “home soil”.
The team that will play under the Alliance banner is the newly-formed European stack led by Adrian “Fata” Trinks. By the looks of it, he will be taking the position five in the new team because he will also be the captain. This is a very common thing nowadays because it is a lot easier to captain from the support position rather than play core.
The new Alliance from 1 to 5:
- Nikolay “Nikobaby” Nikolov
- Linus “LIMMP” Blomdin
- Neta “33” Shapira
- Simon “Handsken” Haag
- Adrian “Fata” Trinks
Judging by what the players had to say, they all seem to be fired up for what is to come. Hopefully, they will be able to live up to their potential and put up a real challenge to some of the top teams in the world right now.
We will be able to find out what are they capable of very soon. They will take part in the upcoming Closed Qualifiers for the MDL Chengdu Major starting in just two days.
“A new chapter of Alliance Dota 2 begins today. It won’t be easy, but we are no strangers to hard work. Finally, I just want to thank all of you out there that make this possible. We’ll see you at TI 10,” said the CEO of Alliance Jonathan “Loda” Berg.
