With the The International 2019 already scheduled, a number of Dota 2 teams are gearing for the last Major tournament and the qualifiers for TI9. The biggest news that greeted May was Team Team being acquired by beastcoast.

At the other side of the world, in the Southeast Asia region, Geek Fam is also making changes to its roster.

The team revealed a new roster early this year with players Justine Ryan Evangelista “Tino” Grimaldo, Vincent “AlaCrity” Yoong, Lee Kong “kYxY” Yang, Mark Jubert “Shanks” Redira, and Pang “BrayaNt” Jian Zhe. For this roster, its highest finish so far has been a third place finish for the Asia Pacific Predator League 2019.

It's not surprising then that just days after beastcoast announced its acquisition of Team Team, Geek Fam released its entire roster. As of May 8, the new team members are Marc Polo Luis “Raven” Fausto, Chai Yee “Mushi” Fung, Kenny “Xepher” Deo, and Prieme Ejay “PlayHard” Banquil. Rounding off the roster is Rolen Andrei Gabriel “Skemberlu,” Ong, who is on loan from Complexity Gaming.

Dota 2 fans are likely to recognize two of the names on the roster. Though Raven had been a member of a number of teams like Mineski and Fnatic, it was his stint with TNC that saw his popularity rise. He left TNC after TI8 to join Lotac, which has since disbanded. The other name is Mushi, who was originally with Team DK back in 2013. He has since been a member of a number of teams like EHOME, Fnatic, and Mineski, before being signed on by Geek Fam.

Other big news in terms of roster changes is Dota 2 German player Dominik "Black^" Reitmeier joining South American team Infamous. He joins the team at position 2. Prior to joining the new team, Black^ was with Entity Gaming before leaving in July of last year. He is known in the Dota 2 community as the “World Traveler” as he joined many teams based in different regions. He has been a member of teams in North America, Europe, China, Southeast Asia, and now South America. That means he has played in five of the six regions of Dota 2.
