His former team-mates and business associates are now playing under the name Team Zero. Eric 'Ryoya' Dong and Theeban '1437' Siva join forces with ba's core players.
I'm getting messages asking why I'm not playing today. I decided to take a break from competitive for a little since DPC isn't starting until Jan-Feb of 2021. The team wanted to keep playing regardless (3/5 of the roster) so they made a new team. Best of luck to the guys!— Clinton Loomis (@FearDotA) September 7, 2020
