Quincy Crew has announced that it is parting ways with Maurice "KheZu" Gutmann, the position three player on its Dota 2 roster. Khezu has since stated that he was in fact kicked from the team and is sad and surprised about the decision. He remains uncertain about what comes next for him in Dota 2 esports. Earlier in April, Quincy Crew had parted ways with both its support players, Remus "ponlo" Goh Zhi Xian and Milan "MiLAN" Kozomara. On account of these roster changes, the team has suffered heavy DPC point penalties.

Quincy Crew Suffers Sizeable DPC Points Penalty Due To Roster Changes

Quincy Crew finished third in a three-way tiebreaker in the NA DPC 2021/22 Tour 2, resulting in the team’s failure to qualify for the ESL One Stockholm Major. Following this, the team parted ways with both its support players - Ponlo and MiLAN. Hours before this change was announced, MiLAN posted a (seemingly) dissatisfied statement in his native language Serbian, saying “I'll just thank you for the betrayal, in time”. Now with Khezu’s departure from the Dota 2 roster, Quincy Crew are left with 282.49 DPC points - a far cry from the initial 460 that the team commanded prior to these changes.

Quincy Crew thanked Khezu for “his tireless effort, outstanding character and incredible leadership while faced with difficult circumstances this season,” before wishing him well for the rest of the DPC.

However, Khezu’s own statement was not as amicable. “I think I have been doing a lot for this team, giving all of my time and energy. The whole situation is sad and came as a surprise, as there was a different plan,” he said, and that he was kicked. He concluded by saying that he is uncertain about his next moves in pro Dota 2.

Currently, only Quinn "Quinn" Callahan and Yawar "YawaR" Hassan remain on the Quincy Crew Dota2 roster.

As the road to TI 11 (likely in Singapore!) draws nearer, announcements about roster changes are becoming more frequent. Earlier this week, Team Secret parted ways with Syed Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan, resulting in the team potentially jeopardizing its chances to receive a direct invite to the tournament on account of a DPC point penalty.
