Gorgc Talks About w33’s Lack of Practice During The Off-Season


Team Bald Reborn recently recruited former Nigma Galaxy & Alliance midlaner Aliwi "w33" Omar to its Dota 2 roster.
However, team captain Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski noted that he has not seen w33 practicing in pubs ever since the midlaner accepted the invitation to join his team.
W33 is expected to make his debut with the team at the end of January.

Team Bald Reborn’s captain and owner Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski recently provided an update on the team’s newest recruit, Aliwi "w33" Omar in his recent live stream. During the roster shuffle period, w33 was released from Alliance after a disappointing season with the organization.

While many speculate that w33 might spend the upcoming season on the sidelines, Gorgc revealed that w33 accepted his invitation to become Team Bald Reborn’s new midlaner at the last minute as former midlaner Steve "Xcalibur" Ye joined Arkosh Gaming in North America.

During his recent livestream, Gorgc was asked by his viewers about his reluctance to add Meepo into his team’s drafting strategies during the previous competitive season. While he did not give a reason, he answered by saying that the team will be considering Meepo as a viable strategy for the upcoming season following the recruitment of w33 to his team.

“Why do you never play Meepo, given the chance [during last season]? I have w33 on my team now, guys. If there will be a Meepo game, he is going to play the hero. Don’t you worry about it.”

However, Gorgc also expresses his concern about his new midlaner as he has not spoken to the Romanian midlaner ever since he invited the former Alliance & Nigma Galaxy midlaner to his team at the last minute. Additionally, he also pointed out that he has not seen w33 play any pub games since he accepted the invitation.

“The only thing I am worried about guys, was that when I invited w33 I told him that “We’re a very casual team, we rarely scrim against other teams” and he was like “Ok”. Since our chat, I have not seen him online in Dota 2 playing pubs since then. I mean, we’re not that casual, we do play in pubs once in a while. I think he took my word for it too seriously.”

Although w33 has not been spotted playing any pubs during December, the midlaner revealed on Twitter that he will be returning soon as he wanted to do live streaming in January until the conclusion of the first regional tour of the Western Europe Dota Pro Circuit (WEU DPC).
