We at Alliance would like to officially announce the departure of Per “Pajkatt” Olsson Lille from the Dota 2 division.
Since joining the Alliance family in spring this year, he has been a vital part of the team, joining us in tournaments around the world from Austin to Jönköping. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time together with Pajkatt and are sad to announce that our partnership with him has come to an end.
During Pajkatt’s time with the team he has consistently proven himself to be one of the top mid-players in Europe. He stood with us both in times of success and of adversity and we are very grateful for the time he spent with the team. Per is not just a skilled player but we are also happy to call him a friend to us all. You can read the statements of the players and our manager below.
Kelly Ong Xiao Wei, Player & Account Manager for Alliance said the following:
“Pajkatt is a very professional individual. He has represented the brand well during his time with us and has a lot of dedication and passion for Dota 2. Unfortunately we had to make a change in the roster to shake things up but he will always be part of the f[A]mily! He has a lot of ideas when it comes to the game and contributes a lot on innovative strategies. We had a lot of fun and good times with him and I really hope he will find another team soon.“
Pajkatt had the following to say as he’s leaving the team:
“I’m parting ways with Alliance, we had some good times and I’m glad I was a part of that. In the end, although we didn’t work out as a team, I still consider them good friends and I wish them best of luck in their future endeavors!”
Jonathan “Loda” Berg, Team Captain of the Alliance Dota team wanted to say the following as he is saying farewell to Pajkatt:
“Today is a sad day since I have to say goodbye to my friend and teammate, Pajkatt. He joined our team when we were struggling and by hard work we were able to play well together. Sadly the new patch and everything surrounding it struck us hard as a team and we could not find the same synergy that we had before.
We have all felt that there was something lacking for quite some time now and even though we are all great players individually, we haven’t been able to mesh well enough together as players. I know that Pajkatt has learned something from his time with us, and I wish him all the best wherever he might end up.
Now we aim towards a new future, a new season where we have the chance to prove ourselves once again. Evolve to tackle new obstacles and, perhaps, return a bit to what we once were :)
We are Alliance, and we stop at nothing to reach the top.”
We would like to wish Pajkatt the best in his future endeavors in Dota 2.
