Just days ago, Team Liquid made one of the most shocking and prolific roster changes of this season. Lasse "MATUMBAMAN" Urpalainen was removed from the team after being a part of the organization for over 3 years.

Since then, the Dota 2 community has been speculating about where Matumbaman would take his talents to. It looks like he has headed over to Chaos Esports Club.


The shorts that Rasmus "Misery" Filipsen is shown holding up resembles Matumbaman’s famous ‘Lucky Shorts’ which he wore in every single series in Team Liquid’s championship-winning TI7 run.

Matumbaman has worn the same shorts every TI7 Main Stage series from r/DotA2

The full roster of Chaos Esports Club is yet to be revealed. This was the roster which competed in the EPICENTER Major 2019 Europe Open Qualifier #1. The Team’s last official tournament appearance.


  • William “hFn” Medeiros

  • Nico “Gunnar” Lopez

  • Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann

  • Milan “MiLAN” Kozomara

  • Rasmus “MiSeRy” Filipsen

From this hFn has already been removed from the roster and is rumoured to have returned to South America. Gunnar has joined a SEA team alongside Febby, Forev, March and 23savage.

Assuming that the other players still remain with the team, the new Chaos roster will be

  • Lasse "Matumbaman" Urpalainen

  • Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann

  • Milan “MiLAN” Kozomara

  • Rasmus “MiSeRy” Filipsen


There’ll be another addition to Chaos Esports Club in the near future.
