Penta Sports has parted ways with their Dota 2 roster after a period of struggle for results, although the squad members will be sticking together for the foreseeable future.
News of the divorce was tweeted on Penta’s official account and by team support Roman ‘rmN’ Paley, the latter of whom wrote: “as of today we will not be representing PENTA anymore. player roster stays the same. time will tell where we will be heading.”
Penta has been consistent in the European regional qualifiers during the Pro Circuit 2017-2018 season with their strong performances and improved results overall.
The roster of mixed European nationalities has also enjoyed several first and second place finish in minor and smaller regional events and as they continue to strive to make a bigger splash on the international and Pro Circuit scene.
Still, while they were successful in qualify for ESL One Genting 2018 that took place in late January albeit using a stand-in player for both the qualifier and event, they ultimately ended up with a 13-16th place finish.
Last month, after a not-so-successful run as Mid-or-Feed at the end of 2017 as a support player, Omar ‘w33haa’ Aliwi returned to the midlane role he is most known for. The Romanian player replaced German player Leon ‘nine’ Kirilin who left the lineup sometime in December.
The roster, now rebranded ‘Going in’ after their split from Penta, will continue to seek out a new banner to play under in the remaining months of the Pro Circuit 2017-2018 season.
