Team Spirit have signed the former Positive Guys roster as their latest Dota players following their second place finish in the MDL Chengdu Major CIS Closed Qualifier that saw them through to the first Major of the 2019/20 Dota Season.
Positive Guys were a CIS mix formed by teamless talent in the region and had surprised many with their Major qualification run. Gambit Esports took the first spot through the Upper Bracket Finals.
Coach Maxim "TheHeartlessKing" Fadeev will continue with the squad. Joining them is Gambit's inactive support player Alexander "Immersion" Hmelevskoy to complete the roster.
Going forward, the following players will be on the starting lineup:
- Mihail "Misha" Agatov
- Igor "iLTW" Filatov
- Alexander "Immersion" Hmelevskoy
- Andrey "Ghostik" Kadyk
- Egor "Ergon" Kozlov
- Maxim "TheHeartlessKing" Fadeev (coach)
The former Team Spirit roster was released back in August, reformed Old but Gold to compete in the upcoming 2019/20 DPC season, but disbanded earlier this month after their loss in the Major qualifier.
The MDL Chengdu Major will see the new Team Spirit debut on 16th November. With $1,000,000 and 15,000 DPC Points available, all of the 16 teams in attendence will be looking to secure as much of the prize pool and as many of the points as possible in the absence of teams like Team Secret and PSG.LGD.
The latter has been a long-standing team for the organisation but many other orgs have recently dropped their players following issues with the management of the competitive scene by PUBG Corp. including the cancellation of promised revenue share skins for teams at the PUBG Global Championship 2019 next month.
