The two Dota icons are joined by two Germans and a Russian. Daniel 'Stormstormer' Schoetzau is a 10k player who recently played with Neta '33' Shapira and Adrian 'Fata' Trinks on mudgolems in EPIC League: Division 2. He will occupy position 2 for the Smashers.
The line-up will be completed by Georgi 'Gilgir' Svistunov and Erik 'tOfu' Engel on position 4 and 5 respectively.

Both Misery and Ace last played on 5 men with the Swedes Rasmus 'Chessie' Blomdin, Andreas 'Xibbe' Ragnemalm and Johan 'pieliedie' Åström. The two Danes share quite a lot of recent history, as they were already together for Cloud9's squad last year.
Between them, the two pros have played for many well-known organisations such as Team Secret, Ninjas in Pyjamas and Evil Geniuses. While Ace will remain on position 1 which made him famous on both Secret and NiP, we are going to see Misery on position 3. Since leaving Secret he has been more of a support player, which makes it very interesting to see how he'll do on the offlane.
