DeMoN is back from retirement
The North American veteran Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho decided quite a while ago to stop playing Dota 2 and retire from professional gaming. However, he started to coach J.Storm this season to help the NA squad to qualify for Major and Minor events.
🎮Roster Update🎮— J.Storm (@Team_JStorm) 31. Mai 2019
Our current lineup is:
2. @RAX_Nine (trial period)
5. @DotaDeMoN (trial period)@MarchDota and @bryledota will remain part of the organization as inactive players for now.
After some bad results in the last two qualifiers, Jeremy Lin's team decided to switch some players. Former captain and position 5 support Tae Won 'March' Park will be replaced by Jimmy who's back from retirement now.
Also, the German position 2 player Leon 'nine' Kirilin will take over the mid from Jonathan Bryle 'Bryle' Santos De Guia. Both players will stay inactive while the new players are on trial.
EE won't play with ixmike anymore
After a disappointing result at the last Major, beastcoast decided to replace their star carry Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao as well as Timothy 'tmt' Ong Liang Li. They'll be replaced by Ravi 'ritsu' Kodippili and Kartik 'Kitrak' Rathi as stand-ins for the TI qualifiers.
Do you think these changes will help the teams to qualify for TI?
