Team Secret won the first big LAN tournament after The International 2018 by beating Fnatic, and now they're going straight into their next event. However, Yeik Nai 'MidOne' Zheng won't be attending, so Puppey is "dialing up a friend". Who could it be? Team Secret are one of the favourites for the first Dota 2 Pro Circuit Major, which will take place in Kuala Lumpur. The European squad changed two players before the season began, and succesfully won the European qualifier for The Kuala Lumpur Major and won the PVP Esports Championship.

Nobody can deny that Secret are one of the favourites for the Maincast Autumn Brawl #1, too. However, other top teams, such as and Ninjas in Pyjamas, will try to stop Secret's run. One disadvantage for Puppey and his teammates is that Yeik Nai 'MidOne' Zheng won't be attending the online event to rest at home in Southeast Asia — meaning Secret need a replacement.

The TI winners reunited?

As seen in their Twitter post, Secret revealed that Puppey is dialing up a friend to help his team out — but who could it be? One famous option could divide the Natus Vincere fans who'll be watching the online tournament. The new Na'Vi squad has been doing fine recently, and even qualified for DreamLeague Season 10. It is a comfort for the fact that their legend Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin departed.

With no team lined up for the first events in the DPC calendar, Dendi could be the perfect option to step in for Team Secret. The old Natus Vincere duo of Dendi and Puppey could be reunited. Puppey left Na'Vi in August 2014, after one TI victory and two more Grand Finals participations.

Their paths have crossed several times on the battlefield, but not on the same side. If Dendi stood in for Secret we'd finally get to see the iconic duo back together, where they could face the new Na'Vi squad.

Who else could stand in?

While leading Team Secret a lot of great midlaners have crossed paths with Puppey, but none of them are currently without a team. Gustav 's4' Magnusson, Artour 'Arteezy' Babaev and Omar 'w33haa' Aliwi all occupied the Secret midlane for a while.

Although they're all in different teams now, none of their teams are attending the Maincast. Perhaps one of them will help out an old friend...

Who would you like to see standing in for Secret?
