Dota 2 Gosu “GosuGamers” Gamers

The new shuffle period is now open, between November 22 and December 8th, 12:00 am PDT, all teams must complete their roster changes and sign up on the Shanghai Majors registration list.

Here you have all the updates regarding the roster changes, all packed in one place.

Alliance (07.12.2015 confirmed)

-update- Alliance has officially announced the return of Jerry "EGM" Lundkvist to the team and with that the TI3 winning roster is reformed.

According to an announcement on the Alliance official website, Alliance’s support player Johan 'Mynuts' Andersson has parted ways with the squad.

Today I am happy to announce the return of EGM. Some of you might question this decision. It’s scary to remake a lineup, a lineup that won it all, a lineup that went through tough losses and ended our second year together with disappointment. Some of you might call this a mistake, that looking back is a sign of weakness. But to me it feels like fate. The circle is once again complete and Jerry, you are now back where you belong. - Jonathan 'Loda' Berg

Alliance Roster:

Sweden Jonathan 'Loda' Berg
Sweden Henrik 'AdmiralBulldog' Ahnberg
Sweden Gustav 's4' Magnusson
Sweden Joakim 'Akke' Akterhall
Sweden Jerry "EGM" Lundkvist

Cloud 9 (16.11.2015 confirmed)

Immediately after their elimination from Frankfurt Major, Cloud 9 announces the removal of Ravindu 'Ritsu' Kodippili from the roster.

Events preceding the attendance of the Frankfurt Major weighed heavily on both Ritsu and Cloud9 as an organization. His out-of-game conduct was consistently unbecoming of a professional player and although he began taking steps to change himself and how he interacted with the DOTA2 competitive community, his past indiscretions combined were too much for Theeban, myself, and the rest of the organization to overlook moving towards the next Major - Danan Flander, Cloud 9 General Manager


27.11.2015 Cloud 9 offcicialy disbands the entire DotA 2 roster.

" The Frankfurt Major took a major toll on the morale and stability of the roster. The search for Ritsu's replacement proved to be a daunting task as the team explored the options available to them both local and abroad. Ultimately, this complication coupled with another loss cemented our decision to disband the remainder of the roster." Cloud 9's offcial statement


Cloud 9 roster:



Should we expect big surprising roster changes for this Major, same as we witnessed after TI5?

  • troll "trollmastermania" master ,

  • Hugo "froontan" albertsson ,
    IAmStaka - u and your friends are mega idiots, revolving all your game around magnus ult + lion aghanim ult you're just pathetic. afraid to go in a fight which resulted in me dying so many times (5), still less than u. just fucking sad, thank god we had a farmed antimage because u were all crap. http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198039939507/ Page: 3
  • Max "Xammm" Diaz ,
    Please change the information. Unknown actually disbanded. There are 5 new players in that team.
  • Arya "saInT_oF_dEaTh" Kumar ,
    Its like the entire team of A is a yo - yo...No direction, No clear objective... Just go with the flow and return back when the potential energy is converted then continue with the flow.
  • Silvio "haaarD" Santos ,
    New team consisting of 2 former HCWP players and 3 former Unknown.xiu players: https://twitter.com/DotaDeMoN/status/674363492913168384 New team consisting of some european "rejects": https://twitter.com/PixulDOTA/status/674037451548061696 New team with Yoky + Illidan, apparently you guys have it in your database already: http://www.gosugamers.net/dota2/teams/13903-elements-pro-gaming, perhaps you should update here as well I reckon these teams are rather irrelevant to the higher skill competitive scenario and are probably temporary, formed just to dodge the transfer deadline, but they might have a shot on open qualifiers.
