What’s much more spectacular is that we additionally watched the primary Main of the 12 months. So let’s check out among the most vital roster adjustments thus far in Might 2022 within the Dota 2 world.
ESL One Stockholm 2022 was an epic battleground the place one of the best groups fought in opposition to one another. Though some folks anticipated Staff Spirit to dominate on this occasion, this was not the case. OG’s younger, bold and gifted roster ripped via everybody and deserved their first large trophy.
OG’s victory was spectacular, however many different groups had been upset with their efficiency. Consequently, they’ve determined to make vital roster adjustments and put together themselves for the upcoming Tour 3.
Some adjustments had been anticipated as a result of sure gamers weren’t performing in addition to folks anticipated. Nonetheless, others are fascinating and positively caught many individuals unexpectedly. So, let’s take a great have a look at a few of them.

The primary large roster change lately concerned Evil Geniuses, one of many groups that upset its followers within the Main. Regardless of being one of many favorites, EG misplaced its matches within the Group Stage. Consequently, it turned the primary group that’s eradicated from the occasion.
Since EG needs to do the whole lot to catch as much as its WEU and EEU counterparts, the group needed to make some adjustments. Though most followers anticipated Kanishka ‘Sam’ “BuLba” Sosale to depart the group, EG determined to take away Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka.
Folks had been wanting to study the identify of EG’s newest addition. In truth, a leaked Twitch chat confirmed that Peter “ppd” Dager, EG’s ex-team-member who was part of the TI-5 successful squad, would be a part of the group as soon as once more. Nonetheless, it looks like this data was false as a result of EG welcomed Tal “Fly” Aizik.
In case you don’t bear in mind, Fly was part of EG for greater than three years earlier than he turned part of Talon Esports. Sadly, his keep there was short-lived as a result of the group was unable to stay as much as the expectations.
Fly was EG’s captain for a few years, so he positively is aware of what the group must be profitable. He could have the prospect to re-join his former colleague within the help function Andreas Franck “Cr1t-” Nielsen. The 2 gamers had been aspect by aspect for a few years, together with at OG.
We’re but to see whether or not Fly’s arrival can be sufficient for EG to rise from the ashes. The group has quite a lot of work as a result of tour 3 of the DPC is simply across the nook.
SumaiL is now part of Nigma Galaxy
EG was unable to shine at ESL One Stockholm 2022, however some groups couldn’t even qualify for the occasion. Certainly one of them is TI 7 winners Nigma Galaxy. Kuro “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi and his group’s dreadful efficiency throughout Tour 2 prevented them from securing a Main slot. What’s extra, the group completed final in Division I, which implies it should play in Division II.
Unsurprisingly, none from Nigma Galaxy was pleased with the consequence. Consequently, the group made the choice to take away Igor “iLTW” Filatov from the roster. The Russian famous person performed the carry function, whereas Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi was within the mid lane. Nonetheless, now that iLTW is not part of the group, Miracle- could have the prospect to take the pos1 function.
This results in Nigma Galaxy’s newest addition to their group – Syed Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan. The legendary mid laner who gained TI with EG performed for among the greatest groups on this planet, together with OG and Staff Secret. In truth, he was part of TS for Tour 2, however the group didn’t obtain the anticipated outcomes.
After leaving the European powerhouse, SumaiL determined to affix Nigma Galaxy, the place he has to play as a mid laner. That is his most snug place, so it is going to be fascinating to see him in motion.
Sadly, we gained’t be capable to see NGX go up in opposition to Secret and OG this time as a result of they’re in Division II. Hopefully, SumaiL and co. will bounce again and take part within the third Main of the DPC. The group has the whole lot it wants, so the one factor left for them to do is win and present the world that they’re among the many greatest.

Since Fly turned part of EG but once more, we’re not shocked that a few different gamers have additionally determined to affix their former group. Certainly one of them is Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev, one of many legendary CIS gamers. He was part of Virtus.Professional for a few years, however after the group’s incapacity to win TI, he moved to EG.
Though the group had quite a lot of potential, RAMZES666 had all kinds of issues that didn’t let him compete within the NA scene. He and a few of his former teammates created a brand new group known as CIS Rejects, and so they achieved good outcomes. Nonetheless, the group was not highly effective sufficient to deliver down one of the best within the area, so Roman left.
Unsurprisingly, the Russian famous person determined to affix his former group Vitus.Professional. Despite the fact that he began his skilled profession in Staff Empire, RAMZES666 turned probably the most substantial carries on this planet in VP. He performed for the group from 2016 till 2019 and gained nearly the whole lot besides TI.
Even supposing Roman can play completely different roles, he’ll take place 1. Virtus.Professional eliminated Ivan “Pure” Moskalenko from the roster, permitting RAMZES to play in his favourite possibility.
It will likely be fascinating to look at whether or not Roman and his group will be capable to compete in opposition to one of the best in CIS. Though Staff Spirit didn’t win the Main, they proceed to be among the many greatest on this planet. They’re positively one of the best in Jap Europe, so it’s as much as VP to problem them and earn the crown. In spite of everything, VP was once the one group from this area able to successful in opposition to one of the best on this planet.
