Because of that, he has decided to take a break from competitive Dota 2 for the next round of the DPC. However, Forward's CEO David Dashtoyan explains in the video that the star carry will most likely be back before the EPICENTER Major qualifiers start.
Sneyking and Kitrak on trial
Forward's former mid laner Yawar 'YawaR' Hassan will be switching to position 1, taking over Resolut1on's role. Quinn 'CCnC' Callahan joins the organisation as the new mid laner.
On top of that, Avery 'SVG' Silverman and Saahil 'Universe' Arora decided to take a break from professional gaming and therefore left the roster.
JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu and Kartik 'Kitrak' Rathi are the other new players for Forward Gaming. They join on trial base up until after the MDL Disneyland Paris Major. This means only YawaR and Arif 'MSS' Anwar remain from the old Forward Gaming squad. At this point, it's not clear who'll take over the captain role in this team.
