Topson and MinD_ContRoL May Join Tundra Esports

Tundra Esports’s TI-winning roster is no longer here, but it seems like the squad may add two more TI winners.

The Dota 2 roster changes following TI 12 affected a lot of different teams, some more than others. Needless to say, Tundra Esports is one of the teams affected the most because it dropped its entire roster. After the team’s inability to defend its trophy, all players decided to try their luck elsewhere, resulting in an entirely new roster. 

With that said, the new roster is not complete, and according to a popular Russian Telegram channel, Tundra Esports may be adding two Dota 2 legends – Ivan “Mind_ContRoL” Ivanov and Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen

It is worth knowing that these roster changes are not official yet. The information we have is from a Telegram channel, but considering the most recent events, we expect to see the two in the new team a few days from now. Besides the two TI-winning names, the new Tundra Esports roster will add three players from Russia – 9Class, Pure, and Xokoda. We do not know each player’s position, but considering their usual spots, we expect Topson to be the team’s midder, whereas MinD_ContrRoL will take the offlane.

What’s next for Tundra Esports

As mentioned, the many roster changes from Tundra Esports mean that the squad will have a completely new lineup for the new season. In case you’ve forgotten, the organization decided to get Team Undying’s roster a few days before the ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023. Just when fans expected to see the new lineup in action, Tundra announced it would be dropping it within a month of getting it.

If this new roster turns out to be true, Tundra will become one of the best teams in Europe. The first challenge for the squad will be the BetBoom Dacha Dubai 2024 closed qualifiers. The latter will begin in just 4 days from now, which means that we expect the news that Tundra Esports acquired Topson and Mind_ContRoL to be out within a day or two.


One thing is certain – the 2024 Dota 2 season will be incredibly interesting to watch. We’ve already seen roster changes with Nigma Galaxy and Team Secret, and now Tundra Esport is about to add two of the best individual players in Dota 2. Considering that all of these teams are in the same region, the battle between them will be amazing, so don’t miss out on it.

In terms of Tundra’s potential roster, it will have the following names:

  • Ivan “Pure” Moskalenko
  • Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen
  • Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov
  • Edgar “9Class” Naltakyan
  • Egor “Xakoda” Lipartiya
