Team Resolut1on brings Universe and Aui on board

Due to new Valve rules around team ownership, the Forward Gaming roster that impressed at The International 2018 now find themselves org-less. However, that has not stopped Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok from announcing that most of the side are staying together, with the exception of JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu. Instead, Fnatic offlaner Saahil 'Universe' Arora will join the side, who as yet have not found a new organisation to represent. We don't think they'll have to wait long, given they earned a lot of new fans with their performances in finishing top of Group B in Vancouver.

As a juicy little nugget of pure gossip and speculation, Green Bay Packers linebacker and well-known Dota 2 player Blake Martinez dropped this in reply...

The new roster will comprise:
ua Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok
pk Yawar 'YawaR' Hassan
us Saahil 'Universe' Arora
us Arif 'MSS' Anwar
us Avery 'SVG' Silverman

Moo, Moonmeander and Adam depart compLexity

Two major changes at NA org compLexity Gaming in the last couple days, as carry David 'Moo' Hull and support Adam Erwann 'Adam' Shah leave. The side competed at ESL One Katowice 2018, The Bucharest Major 2018 and EPICENTER XL, but missed out on qualification for The International 2018 in the North America Qualifier.

TI8 finalists stick to PSG.LGD for the next season

Mars Media Director of Events & Business Developement GodBlessMali, formerly of LGD, revealed that the Chinese TI8 runners-up will not be changing their roster in the off-season. Since bringing in Chalice and xNova the side have experienced great success, and this will come as welcome news to fans as they look to build on that second place when the new DPC season begins.

Elements Pro Gaming remain untouched

The European roster of Elements Pro Gaming have announced through captain Nikola 'LeBronDota' Popovic that they will be sticking with the same side going into the new season. The org recently placed second at the Rumble, and are past joinDOTA League competitors.

Newbee deny rumours of disbanding

After having been the subject of rumours on VPGAME, Chinese org Newbee have angrily refuted claims that the roster was about to disband. This has been backed up in a tweet by GodBlessMali, meaning the side that disappointed at TI8 will have the chance to start afresh in the new season.

MidOne stays at Secret

Malaysian midlaner Yeik Nai 'MidOne' Zheng needed just two words to confirm his intent for the new season, choosing to reveal all on Twitter. Secret did relatively well at The International 2018, finishing in 5th-6th place, and of course will be looking to do better in the new DPC season.

9 August, 2018 look to new season together

So, this one's not strictly post-TI. Fresh from a new partnership, Russian org announced way before TI8 that they had secured their roster for the foreseeable future. The side finished top of the inaugural DPC standings, and despite later exiting TI8 prematurely, will be looking to carry that form into the new season. Their Major charge will begin by defending their title at ESL One Hamburg 2018, having been announced as the first invite.

The roster remains:
ru Roman 'RAMZES666' Kushnarev
ua Vladimir 'No[o]ne' Minenko
ru Pavel '9pasha' Khvastunov
ru Vladimir 'RodjER' Nikogosyan
ru Aleksey 'Solo' Berezin
