The team competing at the Samsung European Encounter last month at Gamescom, CologneTeam Infused management gave the following statement regarding the split:
Infused would like to officially confirm the release of the DOTA2 team from the organisation, after recent discussions it was clear that the DOTA2 Squad's requirements were more than the organisation would be able to support and maintain for a long period of time. With that in mind, we'd like to thank the team for their support and help over the past 9 months and wish them good luck in the future.
Niklas 'Wagamama' Högström, captain of the released team said:
We have (after 9 good months together) decided to part ways with Infused. This decision didn't come easy as Infused Management has always been truthful to us and never broken any promises. We left due to us requiring more than they could provide for a longer period of time and due to their honesty about that we are leaving on good terms. The whole DOTA2 team would like to wish them the best of luck with their current and future teams and thank them for our time together!
Additionally, Alexandre 'Pinoy' Pettersson, who was the team's stand-in during DreamHack will be replacing Jerry 'EGM' Lundkvist in this new beginning.
