Dota 2 team beastcoast has parted ways with Jacky "EternaLEnVy" Mao. This comes in just around a month after beastcoast acquired what was then TEAM TEAM.

In a statement, beastcoast said that when it signed up TEAM TEAM back in May, the organization had high hopes of success. Unfortunately, beastcoast went on to say, "since then, our performance hasn’t been at the standard we set out for ourselves, so we mutually agreed that these changes were the best for our future success."

Along with EternalEnvy, beastcoast also let go of Timothy "tmt" Ong.

Indeed, there was some surprise in the Dota 2 community when beastcoast signed TEAM TEAM, considering the rather controversial events happening in the background. Despite an initial agreement of moving together as a team towards the MDL Disneyland Paris Major, TEAM TEAM in April removed Jason "Newsham" Newsham and Nico "Gunnar" Lopez. This prompted other players to call out what they believe was the typical EternaLEnVy practice. That is, join a team and then work towards replacing some of the members with his own choices.

As beastcoast, the team's first test was the Disneyland Major. The team didn't fare well during the Group Stage and only won one of four games. This resulted in a Lower Bracket position and a match against compLexity Gaming. Unfortunately beastcoast lost and became the first team to be eliminated from the tournament.

Its next shot was for the EPICENTER Major 2019, but beastcoast also lost first to Evil Geniuses in the Upper Bracket of the North America Qualifier. After that, the team was eliminated by Complexity. Beastcoast again tried to enter the EPICENTER Major through the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor, but was eliminated in the qualifier as well.

With EternaLEnvy and tmt leaving, beascoast revealed that they will bring in stand-ins Ravindu "Ritsu" Kodippili and Kartik "Kitrak" Rathi. According to beastcoast, they are going to try “some stand-ins over the next few weeks, and will announce our final roster soon for the year so we can to attack the NA Qualifiers for TI with full force.”

The International 2019 is set for August, and for this year Dota 2's biggest competition is going to be held in Shanghai.
