Alliance announced the suspension of its gaming practice, and much more!

The famous Swedish team Alliance announced the suspension of its gaming practice until the team will form the fully functional line-up!
The fact that the team suspends its participation in a number of tournaments became known due to the tweet, posted by one of Alliance’s core players, Akke:

At the moment there is no information about the tournaments in which Alliance will not participate.
Current Alliance’s roster is as follows:
Henrik 'AdmiralBulldog' Ahnberg
Joakim 'Akke' Akterhall
Jonathan 'Loda' Berg
Rasmus 'Misery' Fillipsen (Standin)

Team Empire, for a similar reason, withdrew the team from the LAN-final of Dreamleague.
Virtus.Pro will most likely replace the team. We remind you that after Resolut1on has left the team, Empire plays with participation of stand-ins: SoNNeikO or Scandal.
Comment of Alexander 'StrangeR' Solomonov:
"Unfortunately, there are contradictions in the team which are very difficult to solve in one day, so most likely there will be replacements in the line-up. At the moment we don’t have any confidence in a positive result at Dreamleague, as well as the fully functional line-up which can go there.
It is also not the best solution to take foreign stend-ins and play at the tournament with them – that's not what we wanted, especially given the fact that the tournament will last from 7 to 14 days. We have immediately notified the tournament administration to give it the possibility to find a replacement.
At the moment our main goal is to resolve the problems in the line-up and to prepare for the next tournaments. All the details of the situation and management decision will be announced in the nearest days".

Current roster of Team Empire is as follows:
Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok
Airat 'Silent' Gaziev
Maxim 'yoky' Kim
Andrey 'ALWAYSWANNAFLY' Bondarenko
Aleksey 'Solo' Berezin

'PGG' leaves Moscow Five
Comment of Vladimir 'PGG' Anosov:
"It’s time for changes. We’ve put a lot of efforts, but we’ve failed to demonstrate the results worthy of M5 tag. I don’t give up, and probably will gather a new line-up soon. I will continue my participation in the team at the position of stand-in player until the replacement for me is found. Thanks to everyone, who continues to believe in the team, especially at this difficult stage".
Current roster of Moscow Five is as follows:
Ivan 'Vigoss' Shinkarev
Vladislav 'blowyourbrain' Moroziuk
Maxim 'TpoH' Vernikov
Rinat 'King R' Abdulin
Vladimir 'PGG' Anosov (stand-in player)

It has also become known that Roman 'Scandal' Sadotenkov leaves WP.Polar just before the finals of DreamLeague Season 2. (Apparently Empire wants to see him not only as a standin).

'Scandal' joined WP.Polar in September of this year, when the team was still called NVMI. WP.Polar specified 2 standins for Dreamleague finals: Artem 'fng' Barshak and Andrey "Mag" Chipenko.
Current roster of WP.Polar is as follows:
Ilya 'Illidan' Pivtsaev
Ilia 'Lil' Iliuk
Alexander "DkPhobos" Kucheria

Well, and the last part of our Dota digest: after a six-month break, Team E-Hug is back again with its new line-up.
New roster of Team E-Hug is as follows:
Michael 'MJW' Nguyen
Veasna 'SNA' Sokhom
Thomson 'Lust' Tran
Frankie 'Inphinity123' Pravo
Jason 'Sn' Wong

The new team aims to achieve a level of such American teams as SNA, CoL and EG. Will the guys do it? Time will show.
