Steven "StingeR" Mamani, the captain of beastcoast and position five player, hinted a lineup of five players on Twitter, three of whom played for Beastcoast and two for Thunder Awaken at TI11.
The five players are Héctor "K1" Rodríguez, Herrera "Darkmago" Gonzalo, Rafael "Sacred" Yonatan, Elvis "Scofield" Peña, and Steven "StingeR" Mamani.
So far, neither Beastcoast nor Thunder Awaken have officially confirmed these roster changes.

Despite South America's (SA) stellar performances at the International 2022 (TI11), which saw the region register its best result at TI, the top teams from the region appear to be on the verge of some drastic changes. On Twitter, the captain of beastcoast and position five player Steven "StingeR" Mamani teased a lineup of five players, featuring beastcoast and Thunder Awaken players. If this tweet actually transpires into a new roster, the move will be even more significant for beastcoast players, as they have been playing together for more than three years.

However, it should be noted that there has been no official confirmations of these new roster changes from beastcoast or Thunder Awaken's camps.

Beastcoast and Thunder Awaken players might join forces to form a new roster

StingeR raised a great deal of intrigue in the SA Dota 2 community by writing “What's cooking?” and naming five Peruvian players, all current and former beastcoast and Thunder Awaken players, from position one to five on Twitter.

  1. Héctor "K1" Rodríguez

  2. Herrera "Darkmago" Gonzalo

  3. Rafael "Sacred" Yonatan

  4. Elvis "Scofield" Peña (also known as "Gōjira")

  5. Steven "StingeR" Mamani

In this group of five players, K1, Scofield, and StingeR play for Beastcoast, while Sacred currently plays for Thunder Awaken. Furthermore, this tease comes just one day after Darkmago announced on Facebook that he would no longer be a part of Thunder Awaken.

Adrián "Wisper" Dobles also announced that he has become a free agent.

As beastcoast finished in the top eight and Thunder Awaken finished in the top six at TI11, this potential roster change is an interesting development. Thunder Awaken even made history recently by giving South America its best ever TI finish. Following one of the closest TI series against Team Liquid in the lower bracket, the team narrowly missed out on the top four.

Even though beastcoast's five players have been playing together for a long time, and they have been the best in South America, and have done well in interregional LAN events, there has been something missing: the extra oomph needed for the top finishes. There is a possibility that this roster shuffle is an attempt in that direction.

After TIs, the offseason is always flooded with roster shuffles around the world, and SA seems to have already started this wave.
