It looks like Dota 2 team mudgolems has finally caught a break. The entire roster has been signed by Tundra Esports - a move that is actually beneficial to both sides. For mudgolems, they’re part of an organization while for Tundra, they can see if they have what it takes to be part of the Dota 2 esports scene.

A Good Move

For those following the competitive scene, mudgolems had its start after players Adrian “Fata” Trinks and Neta “33” Shapira were released from Alliance in March 2020. Despite the pandemic, there were still tournaments being held particularly in Europe. To take part in different competitions, Fata and 33 formed a new team with other free agents in September.

Since then, the team had managed to do pretty well. They achieved to get second place during the BTS Pro Series Season 3: Europe/CIS. They even got third place during the ESL One Germany 2020, beating the likes of Team Secret, OG, and even former team Alliance.

Before being signed by Tundra, mudgolems had a roster change and now composed of:

  • Oliver “skiter” Lepko
  • Leon “Nine” Kirilin
  • Neta “33” Shapira
  • Malthe “Biver” Winther
  • Adrian “Fata” Trinks

Joining a New Competitive Scene

For Tundra, signing on mudgolems gives them the chance to be part of a new competitive scene. The organization is relatively new, being formed back in 2019 and based in London. They managed to immediately be part of FIFA by forming a roster composed of international talent. However, the organization knew early on that they had to expand to other games.

Tundra stated that they noticed mudgolems after they qualified for the Upper Division of the DPC 2021 Season 14 for Europe. Tundra continued that they believe this roster has high potential to become one of the elite teams of the region. Although that objective is clearly high, Tundra is confident that the team can more than make it happen. After all, Fata has managed to take part in The International since 2013, though in different teams.

Tundra didn't just sign the roster but even mudgolems' manager Curtis “Curtis” Coffin.

We’re actually excited to see how the roster fares now that they have an organization backing them up.
