Yesterday, we saw that Quinn “CCnC” Callahan, Arif “MSS” Anwar and Avery “SVG” Silverman have registered for the Minor and Major qualifiers under the name Quincy Crew. Today, we found out the names of the team's last two players, and oh boy, we definitely did not see this one coming.

The first player to join the new team is none other than Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan. The ex-EG mid laner has been one of the best players in the world during the last couple of years. He has a major role in EG’s success, including TI 5 trophy. However, it seems some changes had to happen in the NA squad, which led to SumaiL’s release after spending five years in EG’s roster.
Coming in second is … SumaiL’s brother! Yawar “YawaR” Hassan last played for Forward Gaming, which got acquired by Newbee for TI 9. However, after they couldn't satisfy the organization, the team members decided to part ways.
What to Expect
There were a lot of rumors on Reddit that “the Hassan brothers” will be playing together. In the end, it turned out to be true.
Unfortunately, Quincy Crew now has three people that can play carry and mid. That’s why one of them has to change his position and needless to say, it’s not going to be Sumail. Instead, his older brother will take the role of an offlaner, leaving the carry role to the wonderkid. CCnC, on the other hand, will most likely play mid.
There is no information yet about which region is this team playing in. However, it is very likely to be NA because all of the players are based there. What’s more, it is also the “easier” Dota 2 region right now, especially in the last couple of months.
