The North American player FrancisLee has spread a rumour that Team EnVyUs and Team SoloMid will enter Dota 2. It seems like the former VGJ.Storm roster could be the focus of one of the outsiders. Francis "FrancisLee" Lee, also known as 'FLee', is an American player who most recently played for SG e-sports. He was the position four player for the Brazilian squad for three months. He previously played for teams such as Is GG*, and Team Freedom*, and even for VGJ.Storm themselves. Now it appears he has some inside information on his former team.

EnVy.ppd incoming?

According to a Twitch chat he was in, Team SoloMid and Team EnVyUs will enter the Dota 2 scene with teams for this season. We reported a few days ago on rumours that Peter 'ppd' Dager's team (Shangri-La) could be approached by EnVyUS — or it could be that ppd is trying to get hired by the huge organization.

It wouldn't be the first outside org ppd has brought into Dota 2. With OpTic not signing a new lineup, there is a gap in North America which needs to be filled.

Team EnVyUs is known from games such as Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and their Overwatch League team Dallas Fuel. They're concentrated on the Dallas region — perfect for ppd, who relocated to the city a short while ago. For now, Shangri-La are competing in the European Qualifier, but that shouldn't stop EnVy from hiring them. For years they have had a French Counter-Strike team based in Europe.

Does TSM take over for OpTic?

On the other hand, according to FrancisLee Team SoloMid are trying to hire the former VGJ.Storm roster. After the organization decided not to invest in other players, the top-level NA team is without an organization for now.

After a decent Dota 2 Pro Circuit and a good placement at The International 2018, the team decided to exchange just one player: Saahil 'Universe' Arora came in for JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu. Now they're even considered stronger than before.

Team SoloMid is an organization mostly known for League of Legends and its frenetic fan chants. However, TSM has had some success outside LoL, such as in Overwatch, PUBG and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. TSM's focus is to be the best in North America — with the ex-VGJ.Storm roster they could be a threat to NA kings Evil Geniuses.

What do you think about that rumour? Will TSM and EnVyUs enter Dota 2?
