Mineski is the sixth team added to the lineup for the ESL One Katowice 2018 Major next month.

Next in line of the Pro Circuit Points ranking system, Mineski has accumulated 720 TI8 qualifying points for their second place finish at StarLadder Invitational Season 3 Minor and their championship title victory at PGL Bucharest Minor. Unfortunately, the team did have to opt out of Dota Pit League Minor at the last moments due to personal circumstances for one of the players and ended in a disappointing 7-8th place finish at Perfect World Masters.

Starting off the new year, the SEA team hopes to make a dramatic re-entry into the circuit with their participation in the Captains Draft Minor this week, followed by their participation in Galaxy Battles II Major afterwards in mid January and ending the month in Malaysia at ESL One Genting Minor before heading to Poland in February.
