Nightfall and Pure at The International 11


Dota 2 Pro tracker suggests that BetBoom's carry player, Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko, has been playing offlane heroes while Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko, its offlane player, has been playing carry heroes.
BetBoom's latest tweet also teases the potential role switch for the players.
The success of this change is uncertain, but it could potentially bring a new dynamic to the team's gameplay.

BetBoom Esports was once considered the best team in Eastern Europe (EEU) after the unveiling of it’s new roster, including ex-Evil Geniuses player Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko and ex-Entity player Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko. While the team had an impressive performance in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) EEU 2023 Tour 1: Division I, finishing first in the standings, the team later dropped to 3rd place in the standings of the DPC EEU 2023 Tour 2: Division I. Following this, the team was eliminated by Monaspa in its first game at the Pinnacle Cup: Malta Vibes #1 tournament, leaving fans disappointed.

There are some rumors circulating that BetBoom may be considering swapping the roles of its carry and offlane players. According to Dota 2 Pro tracker, Pure, the team's carry player, has been playing offlane heroes while Nightfall, its offlane player, has been playing carry heroes. BetBoom's latest tweet also seems to tease this potential change.

Nightfall back to carry while Pure experiments in the offlane

Following its elimination in the Pinnacle Cup: Malta Vibes #1, BetBoom seems to be experimenting with its roles before the start of the Berlin Major 2023. 

BetBoom Esports has been a force to be reckoned with in the Dota 2 scene, with skilled players such as Pure and Nightfall leading the charge. However, the team's recent performance has been lackluster, and the team is looking for ways to turn things around. The potential role switch for Pure and Nightfall could bring a new dynamic to the team's gameplay. The switch would require the players to adapt to new roles, which could be a challenging transition. However, it could also bring new ideas and strategies to the table, potentially leading to a more successful run in future tournaments

The organization’s recent Twitter post seemed to have been teasing the same, where it asks whether it is difficult to start playing offlane if you are a carry player.

The success of this potential role switch remains to be seen. While Nightfall’s transition to the carry role may be successful as he was originally a carry player, it’s uncertain whether Pure will be able to adapt to his new role and adapt to his team’s new playstyles. However, with the team's recent disappointing performance, it's clear that something needs to change. The switch could be just what BetBoom needs to turn things around and reclaim its position as one of the top teams in the Dota 2 scene.
