Tigers has completed its roster for the remainder of the DPC season with the addition of one of the most popular Dota 2 players in the world: Danil “Dendi” Ishutin.
He left Na’vi after an 8-year stint with the CIS organization dating back to The International 2011, earlier this year. Although he had a few stints as a standin for Vega Squadron, this marks his official return to the Dota 2 Pro Scene.
This will also be the first time that Dendi will be making his way down to the SEA region as part of a SEA team.
Earlier yesterday, Tigers announced the signing of Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung as their carry player. Dendi and Mushi have a long storied history of being rivals to each other, so seeing them play together in a team has been hailed as a “Dream come true” by many fans in the Dota 2 community.
On paper, this roster has a lot of slaying power and should be able to contend for slots in the upcoming Majors/Minors in this season. Presumably, Tigers’ new lineup will debut at the DreamLeague Season 11 Southeast Asia Qualifier which kicks off on 1st February 2019.
