Post Singapore Major shuffle log: Confirmed roster changes for DPC Season 2

With ONE Esports Singapore Major coming to a close, the Dota 2 professional scene entered a short shuffle window in which teams have the chance to tinker with their rosters without getting any Dota Pro Circuit Points penalty.

For those who haven’t qualified for the Singapore Major, the option of making roster changes became available right after the conclusion of Regional Leagues Season 1. According to the Valve rules, the teams have time to lock their rosters until April 11, 2021, the first Sunday after the Singapore Major.
 


Europe

All eyes were on the back-to-back TI champions in the first season of DPC Regional Leagues. Approaching the year with a revamped roster and with the eyes on the prize, OG brought to the game the same madness their fans expected, but the result was not what everyone had on their mind. OG placed fifth in the EU league and had to watch the first major from home. With TI 10 not having open qualifiers for the first time ever, this coming Season 2 of DPC Regional Leagues is extremely important for OG, who most surely want to write another page of history by adding another Aegis of Champion in their showcase. 

On April 3rd OG parted ways with Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng. 

OG roster:

???
Topias Miikka “Topson” Taavitsainen

Sébastien “Ceb” Debs

Martin “Saksa” Sazdov

Johan “N0tail” Sundstein

 


Vikin.gg started the first season of DPC Regional Leagues as one of the teams to look out for in Europe, but their impressive growth through the online period of 2020 stagnated and the first DPC run had them knocked down into the lower division. Given their underwhelming performance in the EU league, Vikin.gg benched  Tobias “Tobi” Buchner during the group play and finished the first season with Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann standing in.

On April 2nd, the organization officially announced KheZu as their new offlane player.

Vikin.gg roster:

Indji “Shad” Lub

Miroslav “BOOM” Bičan

Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann

Adam “Aramis” Moroz

Melchior “Seleri” Hillenkamp

 


Despite keeping their division 1 spot in the EU DPC league, Tundra Esports will enter the second season with a new support player after Malthe “Biver” Winther announced his retirement from the competitive scene to dedicate to his studies.

Tundra Esports roster:

Oliver “Skiter” Lepko

Leon “nine” Kirilin

Neta “33” Shapira

???
Adrian “Fata” Trinks


Southeast Asia

Fnatic came into the Singapore Major as the SEA seed #1 team, which had them starting from the playoffs upper bracket slots. Two defeats in a row knocked them out of the competition with no prize money and no extra DPC points added to their name. A couple of days after their exit from the Major, Fnatic announced their intention of making a role change by moving offlane player Natthaphon “Masaros” Ouanphakdee to inactive status within the roster.

Fnatic roster:

Marc Polo Luis “Raven” Fausto

NaNa “Moon” ♪

???
Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong

Djardel “DJ” Mampusti

 


Released from the OG roster, MidOne returned home and will fight for a slot in the second division of the SEA league with Team SMG. He isn’t the only addition to the roster, though. Besides dropping Cheng “vtFαded” Jia Hao to make room for MidOne in the carry position, SMG have also waved goodbye to Michael “ninjaboogie” Ross and added Damien “kpii” Chok.

Team SMG roster:

Nai Zheng “MidOne” Yeik

Neah666

kpii

Tue “ah fu” Soon Chuan

Yee fung “Mushi” Chai


CIS
 

NAVI were one of the teams forced to initially announce a roster adjustment for the Singapore Major after two of their players tested positive for Coronavirus. Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev was supposed to join them in Singapore, but unfortunately, he was the only one to actually arrive at the Major, as NAVI were forced to forfeit their spot entirely when their coach’s test also returned positive just before flying out.  A couple of days later, Ramzes was officially announced to have replaced Viktor “GeneRaL” Nigrini in the lineup.

Natus Vincere roster:

Alik “V-TUNE” Vorobey

Bogdan “Iceberg” Vasilenko

Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev

Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosian

Andrey “ALWAYSWANNAFLY” Bondarenko


Vladimir “No[o]ne” Minenko stepped in for AS Monaco Gambit during the CIS league play in season. He was brought for the team’s final two series in the DPC League and stood in for Rostislav “fn” Lozovoi. With him in the mid lane, ASM Gambit forced a tiebreaker for the third place in the league, which they won and booked a ticket to the Singapore Major. No[o]ne made the trip with the team to Singapore and although their run stopped in the wild card stage, ASM Gambit announced No[o]ne to have joined the lineup in full capacity for the second season of DPC Regional Leagues.

AS Monaco Gambit roster:

Kiyalbek “dream’” Tayirov

Vladimir “No[o]ne” Minenko

Vasily “AFTERLIFE” Shishkin

Alexander “Immersion” Hmelevskoy

Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev

 


After being officially released from the AS Monaco Gambit roster, fn locked himself in on the Valve official registration page with Team Unique. He will be replacing Yaroslav “Pikachu” Vasilenko in the midlane and will play through upper division of CIS League Season 2.

Team Unique roster:

Nikita “Palantimos” Grinkevich

Rostislav “Fn” Lozovoi

Andrey “Ghostik.” Kadyk

Danilo “Bignum-” Shehovstov

Syoma “CeMaTheSlayeR” Krivulya

 


North America

Despite keeping onto their upper division slot, Sadboys underwent a couple of changes ahead of the second season. The team got rebranded to PentAce and lost three of their players, including captain Peter “ppd” Dager.

PentAce roster:

clinton “Fear” loomis

Eric “Ryoya” Dong

Steven “Monster.us” Noel

David “Moo” Hull

Zakari William Lee “ZfreeK” Freedman

 


Black N Yellow will start the second DPC season in the NA upper division league with a slightly changed roster. While the team hasn’t made any official announcement, two new players registered on the Valve official page. Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao will take on the carry duties, while former Team Xolotl member, Jose “esk” Coronel, will play in the midlane. Upon their arrival, Eric “Ryoya” Dong and Francis “FrancisLee” Lee departed the roster and joined PentAce, formerly known as Sadboys.

Black N Yellow roster:

jacky “EternalEnvy” mao

Esk

Zero.dota2

Andrew “Jubei” Evelyn

YamSun

 


South America

Following their withdrawal from ONE Esports Singapore Major over COVID-19 concerns brought upon the team by one of their team members who broke the quarantine rules, beastcaost announced their intention of entering the new season with a six-man roster. No other details regarding who the sixth player is and how the roster will function have been revealed as of yet.

 

Upper division contenders Latam Defenders enter the second season with a new player in the position five support after Jeanpierre Rivera “Aretes” Perez left the team to join Incubus Club.

Latam Defenders roster:

Cucahook

Esk

Sueño

Moonlight.cl

Kevin “Angel Prince” Gutierrez


China

Apart from the addition of Bai “rOtk” Fan on the coach seat for Elephant, no other major changes occurred in the Chinese region.

How to Fix COD Mobile’s Authorization error on Android

Avatar

Published

on

– Advertisement –

Call of Duty: Mobile is quite often plagued with issues and bugs despite being out of Beta for quite a while, the authorization error (code 5,1401,1200) is a commonly occurring and pesky issue that is even acknowledged by the developers themselves and could be due to multiple reasons such as:

  • Server issues.
  • Incorrect login details.
  • Using an older version of the game.
  • Using a banned account.
  • Unstable internet 
  • Try Clearing the game’s cache files:

Going to your settings > app info and clearing cache & storage data will wipe all your login credentials as well as locally stored maps, skins, etc.

  • Check your internet connection: An unstable connection could be preventing you from logging into the game, restarting your router can fix this issue. If you’re on WiFi, try forwarding your ports in your Router’s settings to

TCP 10012, 65010, 65050 

UDP 7500, 7774, 20002

  • Reinstall/ Update the game: If the previous two options fail, you can always re-download COD: Mobile from the Play Store on your device or check for any pending updates by going to “My Apps & Games” in the Play Store.
  • Use a VPN: Sometimes using a VPN might fix the issue as it lets you switch to a different server or region depending on the location you’re connected to. While any Free VPN should do the trick, we’d recommend using a premium VPN such as Nord, Proton, ExpressVPN, or Private Internet Access as their servers offer better speeds and lower latency in comparison. Be sure to connect to a region that’s the closest to your location for a stable experience.

Dota 2 Update 7.29 Introduces new hero “Dawnbreaker”

Avatar

Published

– Advertisement –

Dota 2’s major update just landed on Steam which is sized at about 500MB. This update adds a new hero to the already wide-ranging list of 120 Heroes after Hoodwink was introduced (now 121 after update 7.29). 

Dawnbreaker is a tank carry and melee-type hero that has the ability to heal her allies.

Here’s an introduction on Dota 2’s official blog:

  • Dawnbreaker shines in the heart of battle, happily crushing enemies with her celestial hammer and using the energy released to heal nearby allies. At one with the mass of her weapon, she revels in hurling her hammer through multiple foes and then converging with it in a blazing wake. Created to rival ancient forces of chaos and darkness by descendants of the first light, Dawnbreaker only taps her true cosmic power to fly to the aid of her teammates — eager to rout her enemies on the battlefield no matter where they may be.

She possesses a total of four abilities with one of them being a passive ability, her abilities are as follows:

  • Starbreaker: A point target ability where “Dawnbreaker whirls her hammer around 3 times, damaging enemies with her attack plus bonus damage. On the final strike, she smashes her hammer down, stunning and damaging enemies in front of her.”
  • Celestial Hammer: Another point target ability, “Dawnbreaker hurls her weapon at a target, damaging enemies struck along the way. The hammer pauses for 2.0 seconds at the destination before flying back to her, leaving a trail of fire that slows enemies. Dawnbreaker can recall the hammer at any time, pulling her towards it so they meet in the middle.”
  • Luminosity: A passive ability, where Dawnbreaker charges up after 3 attacks which charge “her next attack with a critical hit that heals all allied heroes within 650 units around her for a portion of attack damage dealt. Creeps and neutral enemies provide less healing. Allies are healed for 35% of the amount.” This ability can pierce spell immunity.
  • Solar Guardian: This is her ultimate ability, “Dawnbreaker creates a pulsing effect at a location within 350 units of an allied hero anywhere on the map, damaging enemies and healing allies with each pulse. After a short duration, she flies to the target location, dealing additional damage and stunning enemies upon landing. Once channeled, Dawnbreaker cannot stop the ability.”

Patch 7.29 also features a redesigned terrain which changes the placement of power and bounty runes, outposts, ward cliffs, and general foliage. All Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas have considerable changes in this newer version.

Items such as Necronomicon and Royal Jelly have been removed, while Abyssal Blade no longer has a blink effect and the current line-up of heroes have gone through changes as well and one of the most notable differences in this update is that Crystal Maiden can now move freely during her ultimate “Freezing Field” ability, provided you have purchased a shard upgrade.

You can read the ginormous list of patch notes here to learn more. For more Dota 2 updates, keep following TalkEsport.
