Winstrike will stay together
29 August 2018
Due to new Valve rules around team ownership, the Quincy Crew 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:
Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok
Yawar 'YawaR' Hassan
Saahil 'Universe' Arora
Arif 'MSS' Anwar
Avery 'SVG' Silverman
Moo, Moonmeander and Adam depart compLexity

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
So, this one's not strictly post-TI. Fresh from a new partnership, Russian org Virtus.pro 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:
