In the last few days, Chaos Esports Club decided to drop their whole dota 2 roster. This includes Misery’s departure and Matumbaman’s move to Team Secret. Today, the organization proudly announced their new roster for this season as they sign Quincy Crew (https://twitter.com/ChaosEC/status/1191732174501896194?s=19)

In the blog post shared in the tweet, Chaos EC Director Greg Laird expressed how they wanted to provide Quincy Crew with their needed support as the players have become pillars of North American Dota. In addition, they believe that the passion and eagerness of Quincy Crew to win is a perfect fit for Chaos EC to become a strong contender for the Aegis of Champions.
That being said, Yawar will be playing position 1 (carry) ; Quinn, previously known as CCnC for position 2 (mid) ; and SVG and MSS as supports. For their offlaner, they will put Saberlight under trial as well as IllidanSTR as coach, while they will be managed by KBBQ. Do you think Saberlight and IllidanSTR become a permanent part of the org?
For those unfamiliar, SVG was a former player of Forward Gaming before MSS, Yawar, and Quinn played joined the org and qualify for The International 9, but the organization’s financial status forced them to release their dota 2 roster a month before the prestigious tournament.
Luckily, they were able to get Newbee as their temporary sponsor for TI9 where they finished at 9th-12th spot. Afterwards, MSS, Quinn, Yawar, and KBBQ formed a new team with Sumail and SVG which is called Quincy Crew, but due to legal reasons and failing to qualify for the Chengdu Major, they have released Sumail.
With four players coming to ESL One Hamburg, Quincy Crew managed to loan Saberlight from Team Singularity as their offlaner. However, a medical issue of Quinn forced Quincy crew to substitute their midlaner for Sumail. Despite this, they only managed to finish 9th-10th place before they were signed by Chaos.
In summary, this squad has signed with three different organization changes since July, but now they are signed by an organization long-respected in the dota 2 scene. Will Chaos EC provide support that will unleash the roster’s full potential? Will the roster click well enough to become a contender in TI10?
