dd.Dota become Quantic

posted by Sun_Tzu,
The rumoured sponsor of fr dd.Dota has emerged, and it is a familiar name, as Quantic Gaming returns to Dota 2, for the second time picking up a team which went under the dd moniker, as they did during their first stint into Dota 2 played host to the Danish dd.Dota roster, more than a year ago.

The mostly French outfit has recently impressed, showing innovative strategies and unconventional hero picks during their break-out run in The International 2013 Western Qualifiers, where they came just short of securing a direct spot in the competition. They present an intriguing combination of experience and confidence which is a surefire recipe for being able to create a style which fits the team.

All players involved were part of last years International, although on different ill-fated teams. With the backing of their new sponsor they will look to correct the shortcomings of their previous teams at Seattle this year.

Sadly this also means the end for the fan favourite logo, which was always sure to soften the hearts of even the most hardened Dota player and put a smile on each viewers face.

Statement from the Quantic website:

Quantic Gaming is ecstatic to welcome one of Dota's well known Teams, DD.Dota, to the talent pool of Quantic Gaming. We plan to use all resources available to market and give you the greatest Dota 2 content available.
