The International 6: Secret signs up for open qualifiers with Aui_2000

A mystery has emerged regarding Secret's line-up for TI6 after Kurtis 'Aui_2000' Ling  seemed to have joined the team's open qualifier roster.

After forfeiting their rights to an invite to The International 6's regional qualifiers and main event by breaking Valve's roster lock rules, Team Secret was forced to play in the TI6 open qualifiers if they wished to qualify for the main event. Registering on the 17th of June for the EU open qualifiers #1 and #2, Team Secret's lineup consists of their manager, coach and a six man roster.

The usernames used to lock into the open qualifiers roster imply that five of the five players on Secret's main roster has registered, with Lorne-Malvo most likely being Bulba.

The other player on Secret's roster is Kurtis 'Aui_2000' Ling (Username: Aui_2000dota). Considering that Aui_2000 was not announced as part of Secret's main roster, he is expected to be Secret's stand-in for TI6.

Following the roster changes underwent by Secret post-Shanghai Major, the team has been unable to achieve any notable performances. The roster stuck together until their last place finish at the Manila Major, which resulted in Saahil 'Universe' Arora's departure and the subsequent pick-up of Bulba. This roster change was against Valve's rules and cost Secret their chance to receive a TI6 regional qualifier invite and direct invite.

    Why Open Qualifier?? They are not invited in the Eu qualifier? They are still strong!
    • Duy "Mito" Vu ,
      A - They change line up so they violate Valve's rule. Imo this is the main reason. B - Strong?? I dont think so. Each member is a great player but they dont play as a team.
