One of North America’s strongest and longest-lasting Dota 2 teams is going to look radically different come next season.
“Most of us have been together for awhile and it’s time for people to explore other opportunities,” Chen said. “There are no hard feelings, no one is being kicked, it’s just time to see what else is out there.”
This decision comes after Quincy Crew placed at the bottom half of the field at The International 10 following a loss to OG. Though the Crew dominated domestically—especially in recent years, achieving second and first in seasons one and two of this year’s Dota Pro Circuit North American Regional League—international results rarely followed. The crew’s best showing at an offline event with its current roster was a top six placement at the WePlay AniMajor.
Besides Evil Geniuses, the lack of organizational support in the NA Dota scene have affected even Quincy Crew, regularly regarded as one of the best teams in the region. It’s still an impressive feat that several of their players have stuck together for so long. But with every American team in the bottom half of TI10, it’s likely that rather than just Quincy Crew, several teams will be undergoing changes for the upcoming season.
