Forward Gaming makes another roster change in just over one month following their disappointing finish at OGA Dota PIT Minor. 

Forward Gaming has decided to change out newcomer Kartik ‘Kitrak’ Rathi after just five weeks playing with the team with veteran player Johan ‘pieliedie‘ Åström. 

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. 

It was at that time they welcomed back Jingjun ‘Sneyking‘ Wu into the fold and recruited Quinn ‘CC&C‘ Callahan and Kitrak. 

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. 

Forward Gaming Roster:

Pakistan Yawar ‘YawaR‘ Hassan
United States Quinn ‘CC&C‘ Callahan
United States Jingjun ‘Sneyking‘ Wu
United States Arif ‘MSS‘ Anwar
Sweden Johan ‘pieliedie‘ Åström


Do you think all these roster changes will help the team or hurt them?

Help of course

Only hurt in the long run
