NoPing releases its Dota 2 roster, will reform for next DPC season

NoPing e-sports and its Dota 2 rosters have agreed to part ways ahead of the next Dota Pro Circuit season. In a statement, NoPing said it will be fielding a new roster for the next season, but the organization has no news to share at the moment.  This is the second top-level South American roster to split with its sponsor organization in order to pursue other opportunities, following Thunder Predator doing the same following The International 10.  “By decision of all players in the team, we will not continue with the

Quincy Crew to undergo “significant changes”

One of North America’s strongest and longest-lasting teams is going to look radically different come next season. Quincy Crew, whose core players have stuck together even through disbanded organizations, will likely see “significant changes” according to Jack Chen, manager for Quincy Crew. “Most of us have been together for awhile and it’s time for people to explore other opportunities,” said Chen. “There are no hard feelings, no one is being kicked, it’s just time to see what else is out there.” Its hard typing these words, but there will be

Team Spirit crush Fnatic to book top-half finish at The International 10

Team Spirit staved off elimination and secured a top-half finish at The International 10 in today’s clean 2-0 sweep over Fnatic. While the teams looked even on paper, Spirit were in top form. The young Dota 2 roster showed no mercy while holding Fnatic to single-digit kills in both games. Spirit’s off laner Magomed “Collapse” Khalilov’s stock continues to rise at TI10. In a stellar game one on his signature Mars, along with lane partner Miroslaw “Mira” Kolpakov’s Io, the 19-year-old dominated the lane with ease. He proceeded to make

Alliance silence beastcoast, South America entirely eliminated from The International 10

Broadcasting that you want to play a team because you think they might be an easier matchup for you is a risky maneuver that can either psych out or fire up your opponent. Beastcoast fell victim to the latter after selecting to play Alliance over Team Aster in the best-of-one round of The International 10’s lower bracket today.  Right from the start, Alliance came out firing, getting an early pick on K1’s Sven well before he became a threat and then rolled over beastcoast for a solid 25 minutes, surviving

Quincy Crew stage massive comeback, eliminate Team Aster from The International 10

Team Aster and Quincy Crew both faced multiple hurdles during the group stage of The International 10, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell based on how they played during their best-of-one elimination game today.  Aster, a Dota 2 team that had to deal with playing in isolation and with a stand-in for a portion of the group stage due to the entire roster and staff testing positive for COVID days before TI began, controlled the game for 37 minutes. But QC played things smart and never wavered, whittling

Team Secret stomp OG, send 2-time champs to lower bracket at The International 10

Team Secret are well on their way to making their deepest run at The International yet after defeating the two-time defending TI champions OG 2-0 at The International 10 today.  This was the first time the two European Dota 2 juggernauts had ever clashed on a TI stage and Secret already seem to be in top form, sweeping OG in fairly convincing fashion.  Game one was close, with OG nearly pulling away in one of their classic mid to late-game pushes. But Secret were ready when it mattered most. From

Team Aster will play against Quincy Crew on stage at The International 10 following second round of negative COVID tests

After playing the entirety of the group stage in isolation rooms after the entire roster, including the players, coach, manager, and their accompanying video team, tested positive for COVID just before the event, Team Aster will be competing live on-stage for the first day of The International 10’s main event.  Initial new regarding Aster’s negative tests broke yesterday, with the organization confirming that the team tested negative while preparing for the main event. A second test earlier today opened the door for the entire team competing on-stage for the first

SG esports are the second team eliminated from The International 10

SG esports were eliminated from The International 10 at the end of the event’s group stage today. They are the second team to leave the competition after Thunder Predator sat out of the tournament yesterday. SG had a slightly stronger showing than their South American brethren, TP, winning a series to stay in contention up until the very last series of day four. The Brazilian squad needed a lot to go right for them to survive through the final day, but even with part of their destiny in their own

Invictus Gaming lead the way heading into the final day of The International 10’s group stage

One day remains before the stage is set for The International 10’s main event, and the top Dota 2 teams in the world are still fighting for playoff seeding—or in some cases, their tournament lives.  While Invictus Gaming locked in the top seed for Group A with a dominant 13-1 record in just three days, Thunder Predator also became the first team eliminated from TI10 after going winless against the field of opponents.  The highlight of the day was one of the first matches, which saw rivals OG and Evil
