The team’s last appearance was in May, when they failed to get past the European DPC open qualifiers. Since its inception in 2020, the team has been consistently underperforming, with its highest finish being third place in the Dota 2 Champions League Season 3 in 2021.
The recent announcement revealed a roster consisting of the following players:
- Denis “StoneBank” Korzh (1)
- Danil “Dendi” Ishutin (2)
- Glib “Funn1k” Lipatnikov (3)
- Joel Mori “MoOz” Ozambela (4)
- Oleg “Lodine” Kvasha (5)
This iteration of the B8 roster is the fourth time that the organization tried to build a team around Dendi. The 2020 roster had some notable players such as Team Secret’s current carry Remo “Crystallis” Arcets and Entity’s Dzmitry “Entity” Palischuk.
The Ukrainian team will be playing in the North American region for the upcoming Dota Pro Circuit season.
