We finally know the name of all players who will try to save the NA Dota 2 scene.
Ever since COVID-19 became a thing, most of the competitive Dota 2 regions became less active than before. As a result, Jake “SirActionSlacks” Kanner decided to create a team that will try to save the NA Dota 2 scene.
Unlike Europe and CIS, the North American Dota 2 scene doesn’t have that many events. Moreover, the tournaments that take place there usually don’t provide a lot of money compared to those in EU, which can reach up to $500K USD.
Consequently, many NA teams have either disbanded or they’ve decided to switch regions. That’s why SirActionSlacks decided to try and keep the scene alive by bringing together some of the most legendary NA Dota 2 players together.
Although he tried to keep their names hidden for a long time, we finally got the chance to see them. The team is called Arkosh Gaming and it will participate in the upcoming Sacrificial Cup.
Who's on the roster?

Apart from Troels “syndereN” Nielsen, the team will feature three TI 5 winners. Peter “ppd” Dagger, Clinton “Fear” Loomis and Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling will join forces once again. These legendary players were a part of Evil Geniuses five years ago. Together with Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan and Saahil “Universe” Arora, they won the biggest event in the world.
Hopefully, they still have what it takes to rival some of the best teams in the world. Be sure to follow ESTNN if you want to learn more about this team.
