Feature: mTw - Rise from Ashes (Part 1)

Posted by Dexter "kurtcos" F at 05 August 2012 17:16

A one month collaboration between joinDOTA's Jaywalker and players from mTw culminated in a two part feature detailing the rise and fall of the team beginning with the original Wild Honey Badgers at last year's DreamHack Winter. Part one looks at the formation of WHB and the subsequent merger of Western Wolves.

"WHB consisted of Troels 'syndereN' Nielsen, Petter 'pepp3' Nyström, Sebastian 'Matrim' Sundström, Björn 'Kuronity' Forsberg, and Rickard 'Grunt' Vuolikainen. And just like this, a fairytale took place in DreamHack Winter 2011. A BYOC team defeated SK in the semifinals and Fnatic in the finals."

Following a dip in their performance and the shuffling of players Tulex and BENTZER, discussions arose with the possibility of merging WHB (now mTw) and Western Wolves.

"With wW being really unstable and not showing the results we wanted, we had to try very different players to change the roster. Although the changes did not work, everytime we tried a different roster we learned something." said Sébastien '7ckngMad' Debs.
