Chaos Esports Club announced new roster changes and this time around they also made an adjustment in the role distribution.
Ever since the big shuffle post TI9, Chaos had to deal with various obstacles in order to complete their roster. They started the new season with Syed “SumaiL” Hassan joining his brother, YawaR, but the dream duo didn’t last long and Chaos played with Jonáš “SabeRLight-” Volek on a trial basis at the first Minor of the 2019-2020 Dota Pro Circuit. In the Minor aftermath, SabeRLight was replaced in the offlane by Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin, who was also on trial. It went better with Chaos as they took the first seed in the NA qualifiers for the Leipzig Major, but once they arrived in Germany, they got eliminated in the bottom four.
“We’ve decided that we need to make internal changes to address these problems instead of just hoping for some kind of savior to come in and solve these things. We need to change the leadership structure of our team, we need to change the accountability structure and how we communicate and we need to change position wise, and to decide who is this new fifth player that we need,” said the team manager Jack “KBBQ” Chen in Vlog made after his team got knocked out from the Major.
With only a few days to go before the regional qualifiers for the third round of Minor and Major tournaments, Chaos Esports Club registered on the official Valve page a new player. Former Ninjas in Pyjamas support Malthe “Biver” Winther will most likely take the potion four in the team. His arrival means that Arif “MSS” Anwar will be returning to the offlane role, from which Chaos want so much more than having a player able to get the levels and farm fast. In the same Vlog, KBBQ explained: “the truth is that it’s been very difficult and in a sense, unfair for them [SabeRLight- and DM] to be put the position that they have. There are very specific things that we wanted from our offlane position. We wanted someone who had a lot of ideas, who would be in an in game leader and a shot-caller as well, and it’s hard to put any new person into an already existing, established team in that position.”
Chaos Esports Club current roster:
- Yawar “YawaR” Hassan
- Quinn “CCnC” Callahan
- Arif “MSS” Anwar
- Malthe “Biver” Winther
- Avery “SVG” Silverman
