[REPORT] NiP drops their Dota 2 squad after disappointing six months
NiP has announced they have parted ways with their Dota 2 squad after making their re-entry into the scene January 2017.
At that time Escape Gaming had maintained a strong presence in the European circuit, seizing the wild card spot for TI6 and advancing into the main event, where they eventually placed 13th-16th. But after failing to qualify for the Boston Major Maurice "KheZu" Gutmann went to Team Secret and a bit later Yazied "YapzOr" Jaradat departed for the new team B)ears. Despite being down two solid players, the roster parted ways with Escape Gaming and were picked up by NiP.
Since then, they continued to struggle with results and achievements as well as roster stability. They failed to find a place on the international scene map, missing out on qualifying for Kiev Major and demonstrating subpar results in minor tournaments and various qualifiers.
The organization will not be picking up a new roster in Dota 2, instead choosing to focus on their CS:GO, League of Legends and Overwatch teams.
It is not known if the current players will stay together and play under a new banner or will go separate ways before the TI7 qualifiers.
