PPD returns to competitive Dota 2

Dota 2 Andreea “divushka” Esanu

PPD forms WanteD to compete in the upcoming spring season.

EG’s CEO and former captain, Peter 'PPD' Dager chose an interesting mix of carry and midlane players to mark his return to the competitive scene. Three of his teammates are known for mainly playing in the mid lane but also capable of playing carry.

Kim 'QO' Seon-yeop left MVP Phoenix after two years and a half to join PPD’s new project, which leaves the Korean team down to two members after both FoRev and DuBu left the organization as well with this Spring Shuffle.

Rasmus 'Chessie' Blomdin, who has been teamless since his departure from compLexity Gaming, after their failed attempt to qualify for The International 6, is the second mid/carry joining WanteD. A third player with the same ability of switching between mid and carry comes from Team Freedom.

Bill 'Boris' Oliver is arguably the less experienced of the five WanteD faces, his professional career dating back only to the end of 2015. Boris’s most known former teams are EverNova with which he played at the fifth edition of ProDota Cup Americas, and Team Freedom with which he played from May to October last year.

From all the five members of WanteD Jio 'Jeyo' Madayag can be regarded as one of the scene veterans, his career going way back to the beginning of 2012 when he was playing for compLexity and then Evil Geniuses. Through 2014-2016 Jeyo played for Team Fire, Archon and Rave.

WanteD roster in no particular order:

United States Peter 'PPD' Dager
Canada Jio 'Jeyo' Madayag
Sweden Rasmus 'Chessie' Blomdin
South Korea Kim 'QO' Seon-yeop
Canada Bill 'Boris' Oliver

    t2 NA team they might be in Kiev, depends what VOLVO does with qualifiers...But then again I thought Liquid will be t2 team back in 2015...and they almost won a major...

    Back in late 2012 at coL.HoN, Chessie was the jungler/support together with Ppd as the most dominant team on the scene. It is quite unlikely Chessie will return to supporting all of a sudden, but he definitely could be a tier 1 support eventually if he did.

    Never trust a word "retire" from professional player. Except Master Singu the monkey king xd
  • James "Yared" A ,
    A very interesting experiment from PPD. Most are 8K solo and are versatile too. Testing the waters with calculated risks.
  • Number 1 "clariska" of Number 99 ,
    Very risky Move from ppd but this can go either way.Either they do really good or they do really bad.Jeyo played some solid dota back in rave days.They most prob have the best captain in the world.But international teams tend to not work out.Lets see what happens. PS can't wait to see them play vs EG :D
