Infamous turned out to be one of the biggest surprises at TI 9. Not only did they exceed all expectations, but they also did so in easy fashion. Unfortunately, the Cinderella story came to an end once they met Team Secret in the lower bracket. Despite that, Infamous gave a clear sign that the South American Dota 2 scene is not to be taken lightly. Prior to TI 9, many people that this region is just wasting a slot.

As soon as the tournament finished, the players decided to leave Infamous. In case you forgot, they were signed by the organization before the regional qualifiers under the name Team Anvorgesa. Whether or not this was the right decision for the Peruvian superstars is up in the air.
After Infamous was left without a Dota 2 team left, they decided to build a new one from the ground up. Their new roster is led by one of the most famous SA players - Mariano ‘Papita’ Caneda. Many people often refer to him as the "SA Dendi" due to his loyalty to the club. In fact, the only time when he was not a part of the team was during this year's TI due to the fact that his roster collapsed just before the qualifiers.
What now for Infamous?
