Vegetable Esports, the casters attempting Qualifiers again

Vegetable Esports is the flag under which we have previously seen an all-caster lineup participating in the open Shanghai Major qualifier.

The Vegetable Esport lineup looked to have some promise, on paper, including former professional players, Merlini and Maelk who both have been prominent in the Dota scene for as long as anyone.
Despite their interesting lineup, Vegetable Esport exited the first open qualifier for the Shanghai Major in the 32 round against a lesser known team called Unique_Techniqu. In the second turn of open qualifiers, Vegetable Esport lost to Team Unknown, now named Infamous, in the round 4. An almost successful qualifier experience for the rabbit-food efficienados. 

Merlini and Maelk are now bringing Vegetable Esports back to play in the upcoming open qualifiers for probably both The Manila Major and The International 6.

As you would expect from the revival of Vegetable Esports, their lineup will be full of former professional players and some of the most beloved casting personalities in Dota:

UnitedStates Austin 'Capitalist' Walsh
UnitedStates William 'Blitz' Lee
UnitedStates Ben 'Merlini' Wu
Denmark Jacob 'Maelk' Toft Andersen
UnitedStates Kevin 'Purge' Godec
