In May 2018, Topias 'Topson' Taavitsainen wasn't attending any event or planning to go to The International 2018. He didn't even have a team, but OG picked him up and he became a TI champion a few months later. Other teams want to imitate this success by picking up newcomers. These are seven players that we're looking at in the near future.
We still have to get used to see Ninjas in Pyjamas back in action and also to the fact that Peter 'ppd' Dager will wear the black and golden jersey this season. Their first official big tournament on European soil will be at ESL One Hamburg 2018.
