At a glance
Despite placing second in the North American DPC overall to qualify directly for TI10, Quincy Crew only managed to finish near the bottom, being ousted by defending champions OG. After their performance, the team was rebuilt around YawaR and Quinn, its two most prominent players. KheZu, who previously acted as the coach, is taking over as off-laner for Rodrigo “Leslao” Santos who left the team to join Alliance. Arif “MSS” Anwar and Avery “SVG” Silverman, the supports, are replaced by MiLAN and ponlo. MiLAN previously played for Ghost Frogs in EU, while ponlo is a rising star who played for smaller teams in Southeast Asia.
With Leslao moving to the EU, it’s apparent to see that North America is quickly running out of prominent professional players to bigger regions. Even Evil Geniuses, the most decorated NA team, have lost Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Peh Xiang to Team Secret. It will be interesting to see how the NA scene will adapt with veterans leaving for other regions, begging the question if this will open up new opportunities for grown in the region’s Dota 2 scene.
