The promising all-star eu Team Secret hit a rough patch at the end of last year, after a swift rise to success over more established teams. This led to the departure of dk Johan 'Bigdaddy' Sundstein and dk Rasmus 'Misery' Filipsen who replacements have now been found for. With the DAC coming up, Secret now reveals its line-up for the competition.

Team Secret seems to keep their all-star policy as the two newcomers to their team are a lot of things, but not new. Both ca Artour Arteezy' Babaev and se Ludwig 'zai' Wahlberg, already famous from the old us Evil Geniuses squad, will join the ranks of the ever mysterious Team Secret.

Rumours have been spread about this transaction more than a week ago, after Perfect World accidently revealed the rosters for the teams in the upcoming Dota 2 Asia Championships, dubbed as the mini-TI. Now there is an official confirmation in form of a Facebook post.

Despite being let go from the team, 'BigDaddy' shows no harsh feelings against his previous teammates and explains the reshuffle thoroughly, eventually also confirming his transition to world Cloud 9:

[...]Me and Kuro were talking together in Seattle after TI4. We got along very well, and still do, but at the time we were unhappy with how things had went in the past, Dota related.

Talks kept happening and we ended up deciding on forming a team together with a very specific idea in mind. This would be a winning team, a team built to win. If a problem would occur within the team the problem would be solved within the team, if that's turns out not to be possible the team would fix it the other way (i.e. roster replacements).

And that's what has happened this last month and a half. I have a very good relationship with everyone remaining in secret, there is not a single ounce of bad blood between us and I don't see a reason for there to be any.[...] For the people following the scene closely, you will have already seen I found my place in the Cloud9 team and I am very positive about what we can accomplish, but that post is for another time. We are just young boiz that wanna play doto ^^
