The North American Rejects, runners-up in the recent North American qualifiers for The International, are now known as Archon Dota 2.

Chan, Archon’s owner, is one of Hearthstone’s most popular streamers. Archon’s Hearthstone team, which formed in December 2014, also boasts reigning world champion James “Firebat” Kostesich and IEM Katowice winner Jon “Orange” Westberg.

Archon Dota 2 is preparing for The International’s Wildcard Qualifier, and will now enter a preparation bootcamp funded by Archon. The team will be managed by Greg “WhatIsHip” Laird, who is also esports manager at fantasy site Vulcun.

Archon was one of the last top Hearthstone teams to hold off from branching out into other games, with organizations like Tempo Storm expanding into games like Heroes of the Storm and Counter-Strike.

Update 12:40am CT, July 6: This article has been updated to include the names of the new Archon Dota 2 players.
