Clutch Gamers have just announced that the organization has finalized its roster going into the upcoming DPC season.
The roster is as follows:
Pos 1: Nikolay "Nikobaby" Nikolov
Pos 2: Myint “InsaNe” Myat Zaw
Pos 3: Kharis "SkyLark" Zafeiriou
Pos 4: Lee "kYxY" Kong Yang
Pos 5: Giorgos "SsaSpartan" Giannakopoulos
The Clutch Gamers finished as finalists in the MPGL Asian Championship and finished in 3rd-4th place in many DPC SEA Qualifiers, but Clutch Gamers failed to make it to The International 8 - SEA Regional Qualifiers, getting eliminated in the Open Qualifiers.
This roster announcement comes after weeks of anticipation, as fans anxiously waited to find out which players would represent Clutch Gamers this season.
For fans unfamiliar with the names, let’s provide a little background.
Nikobaby is a Bulgarian pubstar who is relatively unknown but he has won quite a few online tournaments, most notably the recently concluded Dota 2 Summer Cup. This could be his big break into the Pro scene.
InsaNe is the former mid of Myanmar team Team Veteran. He was the standout player in the team that has caused many an upset in SEA Open Qualifiers, this is his first International team.
It’s a reunion of sorts for Skylark and SsaSpartan who team up for the first time since mousesports disbanded. Their highlights were a 2nd place finish in the Boston Major 2016, a 3rd place finish at WESG 2017, and a 4th Place finish in Galaxy Battles.
Kyxy moves into the 4-position role after a relatively successful stint at TNC Tigers last season.
