Transfer Thursday is a regular section where you can learn about significant transfers, resignings, and line-up changes that have happened in the worlds of CS:GO, Dota 2, and other disciplines over the past week.



Finnish esports organization ENCE has announced the signing of two compatriots from the HAVU roster - Joonas "doto" Forss will join as a player and Eetu "sAw" Saha as a coach. They will replace Jani "Aerial" Jussila and Slaava "Twista" Räsänen in these positions.

Doto and sAw have been on HAVU for over a year. They helped the team finish third in the first season of the Flashpoint League this year. HAVU has not yet announced who will fill the vacant positions.

Shield's Guild

Renowned journalist and analyst Duncan "Thorin" Shields has become a consultant to Guild Esports, whose shareholder is ex-soccer player David Beckham. The Briton will help the club build a CS:GO roster.

Guild currently owns Rocket League, FIFA, and VALORANT rosters.

Heretics No More

Alexandre "xms" Forte and Bryan "Maka" Canda announced that they are leaving Team Heretics. The players reported this on their personal Twitter accounts.

Xms has been a part of the French-side Spanish organization since January this year. Over the past few months, he constantly had to sit out on a bench for health reasons. He is now a free agent and open to offers from Europe and North America.

Maka was signed by Team Heretics when the organization acquired the full FrenchFrogs roster in mid-2019. With this squad, they reached a record 21st place on the HLTV world rankings.

Dota 2 Release Solo&Co

Last week, announced that VP.Prodigy players have been transferred to the first team, while the former Dota 2 roster has been disbanded. Yesterday, they have officially confirmed that Aleksey "Solo" Berezin, Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko, and Bakyt "Zayac" Emilzhanov left the club on a free transfer. 

The guys decided to form a new stack though, together with ex-EG's Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev and Syed Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan. The new team is called Just Error. You can learn more about the situation in this article.

Team Unique on pause

Team Unique paused their Dota 2 roster and temporarily retired from the discipline. Club's CEO Georgy Faleev shared the reasons:

We pause the Dota 2 team until the start of the DPC season. The pause will last until next year, and the comeback itself will be planned as soon as Valve's plans for the current season become clear. The crisis began at the beginning of the summer. It was compounded by border closures and health problems for some players. We tried to smoothly bring the team to the DPC season announced in the fall, and already in the course of the league to see if any major changes are needed. However, with the onset of November, the situation around the next season did not become clear. The decision to 'pause' is conditioned not so much by the results as by the general situation on the Dota 2 stage. At the moment, keeping the roster in this discipline is most unprofitable."

Yaroslav "Pikachu" Vasilenko and Stanislav "633" Glushan became free agents, and Yegor "19teen" Leksyutin, Danil "illusion" Volchan, and Ivan "VANSKOR" Skorokhod were put up for transfer.


That's all for today! See you next week! Stay tuned at our socials: Twitter and Instagram.
