Swedish esports organisation, Alliance announced today via Facebook, that it has parted ways with its Dota 2 roster.
The squad consisted of Michael "miCKe" Vu, Maximilian "qojqva" Bröcker, Samuel "Boxi" Svahn, Tommy "Taiga" Le and Team captain Aydin "iNSaNiA" Sarkohi. The players left with the desire to join another organisation for the new DPC season.
Alliance coach, Jonathan "Loda" Berg said in a statement: “Today is a sad day for Alliance, because we’re parting ways with a team we love. All the hard work, long nights, happy times, but also devastating defeats. But we are also happy and proud to have gone through this journey together, to have been able to grow with them during such an important part of their careers.”
iNSaNiA also spoke on their departure: “I’d like to thank Alliance for everything they did for us these past 2 years. They believed in us through the roughest times and I will always appreciate the support we were given. More than that, I'm glad to have worked with such wonderful people who have helped me grow not only as a Dota player but also as a person. It’s in hopes of being able to continue that growth, that we move on to a new adventure.”
Alliance announced in the post that it still has plans to compete in The International 10 and intends to build the next world-class roster this season. Since there are no longer any solid deadlines for when team rosters are locked in DPC 2019-2020, Alliance can take its time to build the new squad and register for the season further down the line.
Alliance finished 13th-16th at this year's TI9, but looks forward to using their home advantage at TI10 which will be held at Stockholm, Sweden. The player-owned organisation won The International 2013 and also fields teams in a couple of other games.
