Forward Gaming makes another roster change in just over one month following their disappointing finish at OGA Dota PIT Minor.
The North American squad made a major overhaul to their roster only last month when they announced the parting of ways with three players. Roman ‘Resolut1on’ Fominok who had moved to inactive status, Saahil ‘UNiVeRse’ Arora who had decided to take a small break and Avery ‘SVG‘ Silverman who planned to retire.
Since the change, the team was able to clinch the QI Invitational Americas title, qualify for ESL One Birmingham 2019 and OGA Dota PIT Minor. Unfortunately, the team ended with a 5-6th place finish at the Minor, netting only 40 DPC points and proving they still had more room for improvement.
Pieliedie comes with a plethora of experience and talent, but the team will be dock’d 20% of their 196 DPC points for the change and will drop lower in the rankings – they are currently sitting in 16th place.
