TI 7 profile: Digital Chaos indeed

TI 7 profile: Digital Chaos indeed

July 28, 2017 0 comments

Three completely different rosters worked for the past two years to get Digital Chaos where they are now, and undoubtedly the most successful one was the TI6 one that fought against Wings Gaming in the Grand Finals.

Fast forward to this year, a few weeks ahead of the Kiev Major, DC suddenly lost Shannon ‘SUNSfan’ Scotten, co-owner and founder of the organization, followed by the entire team, including their manager and coach. No reason whatsoever was given by any side, but on the same day of the TI6 runner up roster departure, Digital Chaos were quick to announce the signing of Team Onyx.

Team Onyx was formed on the first day of 2017 by two NA veterans, both with quite a history behind them after nearly 10 years of professional play. Sam ‘BuLba‘ Sosale, freshly released from Team Liquid after failing to qualify for the Boston Major, and Jimmy ‘DeMoN‘ Ho, returned home from Fnatic where he experienced the same Boston Major failure as BuLba did with Liquid, put their brains together to start a new project. They co-opted Mason ‘mason‘ Venne, who was off the map completely post his TI4 top 3 performance with Evil Geniuses, and as the North American scene still doesn’t have too many options, the three NA players looked across the ocean, in the SEA scene to complete the Onyx roster. Kim ‘DuBu‘ Duyoung came from the Korean MVP Phoenix to play for the first time in his career for a foreign team and so did the 16 years old Filipino prodigy Abed ‘Abed‘ Yusop who left Execration.

The five players stack looking for glory in 2017 was not really given a chance by most of the Dota 2 community and perhaps not even their NA competitors felt threatened too hard by them. They shattered everyone’s expectations in the Kiev Major NA qualifiers where the odd stack eliminated one by one Team Freedom, Team NP (now Cloud9) and CompLexity to claim the only one qualifying spot available for the NA region at the last Major ahead of The International 2017. Their performance came with one extra prize as the very next day after the qualifiers were over, Digital Chaos signed Team Onyx and the five players were now settled with a gaming house and a salary to ease their road to TI 7.
