Earlier today, Aliwi 'w33' Omar announced his new, yet to be named stack of players, along with his transfer from carry to support.
W33's announcement came with little fanfare, simply from a single tweet by the former Planet Odd middle player announcing the new stack for the upcoming season. Along with Wykrhm Reddy's tweet, it seems w33 will move to the support position, alongside fellow Planet Odd alumnus Martin 'Saksa' Sazdov. W33 and Saksa are both known for their stellar performance at the International 2016 with the Digital Chaos squad, where they finished second against Wings Gaming.
Joining Saksa and w33 is former Team Secret offlaner Maurice 'KheZu' Gutmann. A few days after the conclusion of TI7, Secret announced Khezu and Noa 'MP' Pyo's departure. Khezu had a decent run with Secret, picking up a few notable victories including first place at the ROG Masters 2016, along with a third place finish at Epicenter 2017. Unfortunately, Khezu and squad were eliminated at the International 2017 in the second round of the lower bracket by now champions Team Liquid, giving them a perhaps, disappointing top 12 finish.
Finally, making up the squad are the two core positions, played by former coL player, Mihai 'cancel^^' Antonio and Enzo 'Timado' Gianoli from Infamous. Cancel had a brief stint in coL in the post-Ti6 roster shuffle in September, but only six months after joining, stepped down due to performance issues. Since then, cancel^^ has been relatively inactive, and it will be interesting to see his return to the competitive scene. Lastly, relative newcomer Timado makes up the final player for the yet to be named stack. Timado comes by way of the Peruvian organization, who had a decent showing at the recent TI7, placing in the top 16 of the tournament. Still relatively inexperienced, it will be equally interesting to see how this young firebrand shapes up in the 1 position from his former middle position at Infamous.
