While the professional Dota 2 scene is transitioning to online leagues and tournaments due to the Covid-19 virus, Alliance prepares for the future by making significant changes to their roster.


Gothenburg, Sweden – March 31st 2020 – Last fall, we signed the stacked roster of two former NiP members, one talented rookie and two homecoming Swedes. The results since then have been good, with the team scoring two top spots in their very first tournaments together, and raking up a good amount of DPC points to this point.

In preparation for what’s to come with The International 10 on home turf in August, where even though our Dota 2 division is as good as qualified, they have decided to make some significant roster changes mid-season.

The team parts ways with Adrian “Fata” Trinks and Neta “33” Shapira. This decision comes ahead of the upcoming tournaments and challenges that will lead up to TI 10.

“These decisions are never fun to make but we feel like we need to switch things up to be able to grow further,” Linus “Limmp” Blomdin comments “Thank you to Fata and Neta and best of luck.”

“I’m very thankful for everything Fata and 33 has achieved with our team,” says founder and CEO Jonathan Berg. “When they joined us in September last year, we knew they wanted to prove themselves and we could not have asked for more with the performance and results they have achieved so far with Alliance.

Competition in DotA 2 is ruthless, even though our results have been good, we are now making these changes to further close the gap to the absolute top.

It was not an easy choice to make but our goal is to become the best Dota 2 team in the world, nothing less. With time I think it will be clear that this is the right decision for everyone. I wish them nothing but the best as they are incredible players.”
