A day after Chaos Esports Club dropped two of their Brazilian players and announced their decision to leave the South American region, the organization took another hit.
Aliwi “w33” Omar announced via Twitter that he will take a competitive break to “fix some long overdue health issues.” w33 spent the last year in Brazil training and playing at first under the paiN Gaming banner, then as a Chaos Esports player, when the five members of the team moved to another organization.
Ahead of the MDL Disneyland® Paris Major Chaos were just a few points away from breaching into the top 12 ranked teams in the Dota Pro Circuit. A 9th-12th finish in Paris would have put them in the top 12, but they lost the best-of-one first lower bracket round, ironically to paiN Gaming. Following the disappointing result, Chaos Esports Club parted ways with their iconic Brazilian duo Danylo “Kingrd” Nascimento and Otávio “Tavo” Gabriel.
Chaos’ plan is to compete for the last set of Major and Minor qualifiers via the European region, which right now is considered to be the most competitive one. With Team Secret, OG, Team Liquid, Ninjas in Pyjamas and Alliance battling for two to three qualifiers slots, the regional qualifiers for EPICENTER 2019 will be a true blood bath in which w33 might not be participating. Chaos Esports Club haven’t announced any of their new acquisitions as of yet and with w33 on a break, the team is now down to two players.
