Alliance announced that it will be releasing its current roster to focus on rebuilding for next season.
The roster has had an underwhelming season, with the team making multiple roster changes during the season after poor showings in the EU DPC 2021/22 season.
The roster consisted of several notable players, such as Nikolay "Nikobaby" Nikolov and Aliwi "w33" Omar.

For the teams unable to attend The International 2022 (TI11), the transfer window for roster changes has seemed to have already opened up with many teams looking to rebuild their rosters for the upcoming Dota Pro Circuit season. One of the teams that will be looking to rebuild its roster fully for the upcoming season is Alliance, who had an underwhelming season after constant roster changes and poor results cost them a ticket to Singapore this year.

Alliance announced today that it will be releasing its current Dota 2 roster into free agency in an attempt to rebuild for next season.

Alliance’s current roster to go into free agency as it looks to rebuild

Alliance had announced that it will be releasing its latest Dota 2 entirely after a disappointing season, after being unable to qualify to The International 2022 (TI11) and remain in Division I of the Western Europe (WEU) scene.

“The main goal of qualifying and representing the organization during The International was always a cornerstone while making changes during the latest DPC Season. After successfully fighting their way back to Division 1, but ultimately failing to stay in it, Alliance found themselves back in Division 2 for the start of next season, as well as falling short to qualify for The International 11. This rollercoaster of a performance and emotions that the organization and its fans saw concluded in a final decision that is being made with a heavy heart; management is ready to turn a new page,” said CEO and founder Alliance, Jonathan “Loda” Berg.

The International 3 champion stated that it pains him to release the roster entirely after a rollercoaster of the season, but admitted that changes had to be made in order to bring Alliance back into its glory days.

"Releasing the full roster was not a decision we made lightly, especially since we have a history of developing and overcoming struggles. To say It’s not been an easy season would be the understatement of the year, but there has been much good as well. Every mistake is a chance to learn and we’ve made a lot of mistakes,” he said.

He also thanked the players and the staff for their commitment to the team throughout the season despite the team’s performances during the season before ending his statement by saying that the team will be working hard to rebuild its Dota 2 roster as the team looks to earn itself promotion back into Division I of the WEU scene before thanking the sponsors and fans of the team.

“Going into next season we will be doubling down on our commitment into Dota 2 and towards mustering a lineup that will make us all proud. I want to give a HUGE thanks to all our fans, family and sponsors for their continued support throughout this time and even though it’s been a real hell to go week after week without a win it’s been a little bit less painful to go through it with you ALL. And remember, rats survive everything.”

The team was composed of the following members during the TI11 Western Europe Qualifiers:

  1. Nikolay “Nikobaby” Nikolov

  2. Aliwi “w33” Omar

  3. Yaroslav “Limitless” Parshin

  4. Adam “Aramis” Moroz

  5. Andrey “Dukalis” Kuropatkin

As of now, Alliance has announced that it has started its process of rebuilding its Dota 2 roster for the upcoming season.
