Valve recently updated the roster lock date on Dota 2's esports website, resulting in more players and teams finalizing their rosters on the Majors Registration Page. There has been one noteworthy addition on the page recently and it belongs to one of Dota 2's most popular streamers, Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski. Gorgc had made a streamer squad by the name of Team Bald Reborn to play in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) last season. He is now apparently returning for the next season as well. Besides Gorgc, two other players have also been added to Team Bald Reborn's roster on Valve's Majors Registration Page so far.

In the Western European (WEU) qualifier for The International 10 (TI10), Team Bald Reborn had the following players on its roster:

  1. Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski

  2. Steve "Xcalibur" Ye

  3. Roy "Rajjix" al Rajji

  4. Axel "Pablo" Källman

  5. Johan "pieliedie" Åström

It is currently unknown whether pieliedie and Rajjix will be back for the upcoming DPC season.

Team Bald Reborn’s journey in the DPC 2021 began on a disappointing note as it lost in the open qualifier and did not qualify for the first regional league. A restructured roster helped the team put forth a much better performance in the second open qualifier. Many fans were taken by surprise as the team qualified for the Lower Division of the second league.

Despite most of the team’s players being streamers who played the game regularly, expectation with regards to the team’s advancement was quite low since the team’s players spent comparatively less time on scrims and training sessions. Surprisingly, the team performed even better in the Lower Division and surpassed many folks’ expectations by finishing fourth. A team that was assembled in a casual manner went on to win a total of $11,000 USD as a result of its fourth place finish.

At TI10's regional qualifier, Team Bald Reborn welcomed pieliedie in place of Enis "5up" Elfki, who volunteered to leave in order to play the North American qualifier with simply TOOBASED. Team Bald Reborn faced Spider Pigzs in its first series. Although it put on a good show, it lost 2-1, marking the end of its run for TI10.

Once again, Team Bald Reborn and Gorgc will hope to put on a great show in the Lower Division of the WEU Division and repeat their success from the previous year. The first league's roster lock date is set at 21st Nov 2021, while the league begins on 29th Nov 2021.
