EGM departs from the Alliance shores

Dota 2 Jarrad “Belandrial” Adams

After failing to qualify for the Kiev Major and a having a less than average performance at the StarLadder i-League Invitational 2, Alliance have let go of EGM.

Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist has been with Alliance since their founding; including their early days as No Tidehunter. He has been by the team’s side through various honours, such as 1st place finishes at DreamHack Summer 2013, DreamLeague Season 1 and StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 1. And let's not forget that magical win over Natus Vincere which secured them triumph and a trophy at TI3.

But as of today, Alliance have decided to let EGM go from the squad. According to the statement released on their website Jonathan “Loda” Berg had the following to say,

There is not much to say other than the fact that the team has not been working out as well as we wanted and we have decided to remove EGM from the team. As a group we get along very well, but our in-game synergy is not completely there. We were on the right track a few times but our failure to qualify for the Kiev major was a blow we did not really bounce back from. We need a change, and with the pre-existing synergy between our three other players this is what is best going toward The International.

Loda went on to wish EGM all the best for his future endevours and included that he would always be welcome within the Alliance organization and family. With the registration lock looming, May 24th 2017, Alliance will update and announce their new roster – or any news on this front – in the coming days and we look forward to hearing who the replacement will be.

We wish EGM all the best and hope to see him finding success on a new team in no time.

    fuck that! handsken is shit

    Handskens gotta go as well. But Junas and Limmp are having his back. I feel as Loda and Limmp are playing fantastic wold class Dota every game but are held back by zero impact supports and just "gotta fight to come back" strategy. No plan at all. Jonas has become almost useful since he played well on Clock lately, but talk about a one trick pony. Alliance should have picked up PieLieDie before NP got him. God damn, being an Alliance fan is nothing but disappointment these days. I predict Niqua will get the shot again. He's been practicing. Or possibly ex-Horde players such as Xcalibur, Pablo or Gorc who are all excellent world class players.

    its time to find 10k mmr player
  • Ian "jiflkid06" Libre ,
    6k carry lul then blames supports for underperforming . good move on letting egm go . he got a lot more potential,, but with this rotting team he can't do any shit . bet he's been pressured every game just don't chase egm back if his new team crushed you loda.
    • Aaron "DK.aaronalliance" Aaron ,
      Agreed. Why can't everyone realize who's always playing for Alliance since the beginning? Loda. He's the most undeserving TI winner in the history of DotA2. Everyone was playing superbly except him during TI3, and yet, s4 and bulldog were enough to carry this "supposed to be a carry" burden to win TI3. The fact that he is barely 6k means that he's not a force to reckon with even in pub games. In competitive games, he's always behind in net worth compared to his counterpart (opponent team's carry) and never made a great play. BurNIng also almost never made really big plays but he's so good at farming, N0tail is also bad at farming but his teamfights technique (positioning, items usage, manta dodge, accurate skills timing, etc) is so good. Loda has none of these, he's not a good carry and he never was.
