It seems like SG esports will try to become one of the driving forces in the South American Dota 2 scene.
Yet another Dota 2 team is undergoing several major roster changes — SG esports. As you may know, this South American squad consisted of Brazillian players and was widely regarded as one of the best in the region. However, the team was unable to achieve much success outside the domestic Dota 2 scene. Even though they were almost flawless in the DPC qualifiers, SG esports were eliminated in the group stage of the tournament. This allowed them to get USD $100,000.
Following the disappointment at TI 10, SGE decided it was time to make a change.
The new names
A few days ago, SG esports announced their new roster. However, instead of having an all-Brazillian roster, it now includes Dota 2 superstars from Argentina and Peru as well.
Similar to TNC and Team Secret, SG esports will try to become a force to be reckoned with using promising players. Most of the new members of the squad don’t have any professional Dota 2 experience, but this doesn’t mean they can’t be successful. After all, Team Spirit won TI 10 with players that haven't played at this event before. This proves that Dota 2 is a game where everything is possible.
Here is the roster from 1 to 5:
- Danilo “Arms” Silva
- Eliseo “kxy” Arancibia
- Lucas “Hyko” Morais
- Artur “LTH” Hanrique Lauth
- Nicolas “Wij” Moreno
Similar to TNC’s new squad, we'll get to see SG esports in action in the upcoming 2020 DPC Division I. They used to have one of the best teams on their continent, but we'll have to wait and see if they will continue to dominate with their new roster. Who knows, SG esports might be the next big name in the international Dota 2 scene.
