Team Faceless call it quits after nearly one year

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

After 10 months of stability, dominant SEA regional results and international competition Team Faceless have thrown in the white flag.

Confirmed by manager Tammy "FurryFish" Tang on stream and an inside source close to the team, Faceless has officially bowed out of competition for the upcoming season as a team.

The SEA based team failed to qualify for TI7 after taking sixth place in the regional qualifiers. Unable to advance out of the group stage with a record of 5:4 after falling to Execration in the heartbreaking tie-breaker game, Daryl “iceiceice” Koh saw his dream of another TI7 crash around him. The Singaporean legend had been one of the select few on a very short list to have attended all of The International events since inception.

Daryl “iceiceice” Koh, Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier, Wong “NutZ” Jeng Yih, Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong and Toh “Xy-” Wai Hong joined forces to compete in SEA as Team Faceless at the start of September 2016. The team quickly established themselves as one of the top contenders and the team to beat in the SEA region. Securing qualifier after qualifier and multiple regional titles, the team struggled to translate their results on the international circuit. The suffered disappointing results at the Summit 6, Boston Major, DAC, Kiev Major and StarLadder. A third place finish at DotaPit LAN and 4th place finish at Manila Masters would be their highest crowned moments in premier international events.

    Had really high hopes of their potential. Now convinced that LAN is another beast.
    • Dota "DotaTwo" Two ,
      that's because they change role Jabz mid to support. Black carry to mid. xy~ support to carry.. their original role was effective!!
      • Prashanth "Kalki" Prabhu ,
        Because jabz sucked in mid. Although all other positions were doing good but the mid. I saw it coming. I hoped they will kick jabz for another better mid player.
      • James "Jackstraw_11" Long ,
        Heard about IG has faced the same situatation. Buring plays offlane, XXS Plays carry.
    • James "Jackstraw_11" Long ,
      Really feel sorry for Black, he loves dota. Hope he can meet better team players
  • jamic "escamunich" villa ,
    Sad. I think they could be a decent team if they kicked XY, get a starplayer mid and let Black go carry again. Ice3 is good in the offlane
  • Michael "Phenomenal-" Thoms ,
    Like i said b4..Faceless have many chance to get INVITATION from Valve For Ti7 because Faceless have many big Tournament.. AND SADLY Faceless just NOT take SERIOUS and ATTENTION!! Big PRBOLEM is because their DRAFT! Faceless need more STRATEGY how TO DRAFT.. Normal Draft is NO LONGER NEEDED FOR TI7(after ti3 there are lot HARD DRAFT from OTHER TEAM) Because right now many TEAM already MASTER how to draft... THIS JOURNEY NOW MORE HARDEST AFTER TI3..SAD for ICEICEICE who spend a lot MONEY but TEAMMATES just play around...
