CLARIFICATION ON THE DOTA 2 MAJOR REGISTRATION
As the the drop period for Valve’s Major registration ends on May 16th, Alliance will not actively confirm the current roster before that window closes. This essentially means that all of our current players will be dropped from the roster on Valve’s registration site. We want to be clear that this does not mean that we are releasing any players but we will be evaluating what to improve in order to ensure success in the coming season. Dota 2 Team Captain Jonathan “Loda” Berg had the following to say regarding the decision:
“The past few months have been filled with a lot of hard work, a few glimpses of light, but also quite a few disappointments. Going into the transfer window we have decided to release the whole roster to re-evaluate the lineup and consider how to improve for the future. This does not mean that we will disband, but that we deem it necessary to consider some changes to become the team we are meant to be.”
As always, Alliance is committed to support the team and its players in whatever way might be needed. We all strive to make ourselves, our fans and partners proud of the team they have been cheering for all these years.
We will provide another update before the roster lock on May 24th. Until then make sure to tune in and cheer for the Dota 2 team in StarLadder i-League Invitational which is held in Shanghai, China on May 18-21.
