Cloud 9 announce new DotA 2 lineup


Shortly after TI5 Cloud 9 announced the disband of the entire DotA 2 roster. The organization has now announced a new look North American squad. Captained by the former Team Secret coach Theban “1437” Siva the new team will look to revitalize the NA DotA scene:

“The institution of the majors is hoped to introduce a mechanism and incentive for stability, but to many it will seem like every NA team formed by that September 5th deadline is a resurrection of rosters that have been tried before[…] I am looking to change this approach to NA Dota by bringing in a few fresh faces to reinvigorate the scene.”

The new roster consists of:

Ravi ‘Ritsu’ Kodippili -carry
Braxon ‘Brax’ Paulson – mid
Arif ‘MSS ‘ Anwar -offlane
‘SVG’ – support 4
Theeban ‘1437’ Siva – support 5 (captain)

Cloud 9 hasn’t been a real contender for quite some time now. The new squad will have plenty to prove and at first glance it’s doubtful they will be able to compete with the tier 1 or 2 teams around the world.
