South American Dota 2 team Infamous has disbanded. The moves comes after a rather dismal performance during the recently concluded EPICENTER Major 2019.

The team was composed of Oliver “oliver” Lepko, Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier, Mikki Mørch “HesteJoe-Rotten” Junget, Malthe “Biver” Winther, and Mariano “Papita” Caneda.

So what happened during the EPICENTER Major?

During the Group Stage, the team didn’t manage even one win. Infamous lost 0-2 to Evil Geniuses and later 0-2 against Gambit Esports. This meant that the team immediately went to the Lower Bracket in the Playoffs. Here they faced off against Alliance. That game was a bust, as Alliance totally dominated Infamous despite a decent attempt from Black^. In fact, two other Infamous team members were unable to get even one kill.

For the 2018-2019 DPC Season, Infamous had not been showing particularly good performance. Aside from the EPICENTER Major, the only other tournament they managed to enter was the DreamLeague Season 11. However, Infamous had a different roster back then.

Going back to the move to disband the team, it has taken the roster by surprise. This was expressed by none other than Black^, who admitted that the move had a larger effect on him considering that the roster deadline for The International 2019 is just around the corner.

Initially, various reports were saying that Infamous did not comment if the team was signing new players to its roster in time for the qualifiers for TI9. It has since been revealed that Infamous has signed four of the five members of Team Anvorgesa to be part of the new roster.

These are Antonio “K1” Rodriguez, Jean Pierre “Chris Brown” Gonzales, Adrian “Wisper” Cespedes, and Steven “StingeR” Vargas. The only person left from Anvorgesa was Diego “Jericho” Rivera. Instead, Infamous has decided to go with Elvis “Scofield” de la Cruz Peña. Scofield was a member of Thunder Predator prior to the move to Infamous. With Scofield, Infamous hopes that his experience will be enough to hurdle the team through the qualifiers.

Despite the rather poor showing during the 2018-2019 DPC Season, Infamous was lucky enough to get a direct invite to the South America Qualifiers. The SA Qualifiers end July 10 and we will see by then if Infamous manages to make it despite the new roster.
