Team Secret is now competing in the EU qualifiers for the PGL Open in Bucharest This is the team’s the second time in row Dota 2 Minor for the new season of competition with a staggering $300,000 prize pool, as one of the six teams, that were directly invited. The qualifiers are taking place from Sept. 19 to 21, having the first place team winning a direct invitation to Bucharest.
But the road to Bucharest will not go smoothly as Team Secret released a statement on their Twitter account that they will have to use a stand-in for their best player „FATA“ this week, as he has a family emergency. Player who is going to take Fata’s place in team, for at least few next matches is 26-year old Mikki Mørch Junget as known as “HesteJoe-Rotten”. He is currently the member of team Danish Bears, where he has a role as an offlaner. He is a good quality player, who had the most success with the cloud9 team back in 2016.
One of the Best for Dota 2 in Europe
FATA is considered as one of the best and most well-known players in Europe for Dota 2 in a role of mid lane, at least. Trough his professional gaming career he played for many teams, such as mousesports, Team Liquid, Sigma.int and most freshly Cloud9. After the 2017 International tournament, he was invited to the team Secret as an offlaner.
Fata had competed with team mousesports back in 2012/2013, helping the team to make some success on the International Tournament back in 2013, but the team, unfortunately, did not manage to place on the event while having problems with keeping the first lineup, they disbanded. Then he joined the team DD. Dota with his teammate, where they have spent about 7 months before moving to Team Dogs. In summer of 2014 he was announced as the new cloud9 solo mid player. From November of 2015, he has spent almost a year in Team Liquid, where he proved himself as a valuable addition. While being a member of team Liquid he had two-second place endings in the Shanghai tournament and in Manila Majors series. W we have to mention that time when he had competed in every of the The International competitions since 2013. After that, he spent some time again in cloud9. Fata joined team Secret recently, in the early days of September.
Team Secret’s European Qualifier
Team Secret’s next tournament, and first since TI7, where they finished in ninth place, will be exactly the Europan qualifier for the tournament PGL Minor. The PGL Minor will have an innovation, a newly created Qualifying Points system live, which will be used to decide which of the teams will make it to the coming season. Team Secret’s lineup consists of Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng, Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard, Yazied “YapzOr” Jaradat and of course the biggest star of team Adrian “FATA-” Trinks, which will, as we said earlier, be temporarily replaced by Mikki Mørch “HesteJoe-Rotten” Junget. After PGL Minor, we will be able to check out the new roster in action, at the end of this month in the matches of qualifiers for the approaching ESL One tournament in Hamburg 2017 and major DL Season 8 Majors.
