Formed in the post TI9 shuffle, Quincy Crew will enter their first tournament of the 2019-2020 Dota Pro Circuit in the Chaos Esports Club jerseys. The North American organization announced their new Dota 2 team as part of a “several massive updates” to come from them.
Jared Fletcher, Chaos Esports Club General Manager:
“Coming into the 2019-2020 DPC season we wanted to field a North American roster and Quincy Crew came as a natural fit. They share a passion for winning and constant learning that is necessary to becoming a world champion team, and it is my belief that we can work alongside them to build an enduring Dota 2 program.”
Quincy Crew started the season with both Hassan brothers on the roster and clinched a spot to the DOTA Summit Minor with Syed “SumaiL” Hassan playing the carry position, while his brother YawaR was in the offlane. However, after the regional qualifiers, the team announced that SumaiL was not the right fit, not only gameplay wise, but in other aspects as well. They never gave too many details about the whole situation, but just ahead of the ESL One Hamburg 2019, they took Jonáš “SabeRLight-” Volek on loan from Team Singularity. For now, the Czech offlaner is listed as a trial for the team, as well as Ilya “IllidanSTR” Pivtsaev, who is the team coach.
With SabeRLight joining in on a trial basis, YawaR is back to the carry role, and the Summit Minor will actually mark the squad’s first LAN in this formula. ESL One Hamburg should have been the first real testing ground for them, but unfortunately, Quinn “CCnC” Callahan got ill while in Europe, and Quincy Crew had to forfeit their first group stage series before being able to play with Sumail in the mid lane as a last-minute substitute.
