ppd joins forces with former Secret duo Ace and Fata

posted by Smyke,
OpTic Gaming had a good first Dota Pro Circuit season. Peter 'ppd' Dager and his team were the third best team in North America and even reached 7th to 8th place at The International 2018. Now they have disbanded, but ppd has already formed a new lineup.

ppd's fans didn't have to wait a long time to see his new teammates. Only 35 minutes after the announcement of OpTic disbanding, ppd already posted his new team on Twitter:

EU or NA?

According to rumours, Team Secret was set to try changing things up. Marcus 'Ace' Hoelgaard and Adrian 'Fata' Trinks, two carry players, have left the organization to play alongside ppd.

The other two players that join him in the new team are Neta '33' Shapira and Martin 'Saksa' Sazdov who he's played with before at OpTic. Saksa was in a trial phase for the team roughly a year ago.

This means that Fata will go back to the midlane. He already played that role on Team Liquid before. As ppd states in the tweet, they're still searching for an organization both in Europe and North America. This could be the second time ppd is part of the European scene since he already played for a month at Super Strong Dinosaurs*. Hopefully this time it'll be a bit more successful.
