Arkosh Gaming arises with new lineup: “NA needs no more villains, it needs heroes.”


Arkosh Gaming rebuilds with top Dota 2 streamers like qojqva, Xcalibur, and Febby. Their journey to save NA begins.

North American Dota 2 grows dimmer day by day. For the past few months, NA has been losing its strongest advocates. Its top organization fled south and its coolest and calmest player relocates to Europe. To bring light to the region, Arkosh Gaming dismissed its villainous core and awakened with a new lineup. Now it's time to ARISE.
Arkosh Gaming welcomes new heroes with concealed superpowers:
  • Steve "Xcalibur" Ye as The Zealot
  • Jaron "monkeys-forever" Clinton as Monk-Canicus
  • Zakari "Zfreek" Freedman as Commandant Freedman
  • Max "qojqva" Bröcker as The Stranger
  •  Kim "Febby" Yong-min as Febbus-Anatis

A new journey begins, Arkosh Gaming arise

Arkosh Gaming - constructed by SirActionSlacks - is one of the most unique teams to watch, mainly because of its bizarre concept. It formerly fielded anonymous players using alter egos in the NA Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) and it portrayed a dark and cultish theme.
The squad competed in Division II of NA but to the surprise of many, they managed to qualify for the Upper Division in the middle of 2021. However, Arkosh dropped back to Div II and remained there for a while until they were eliminated from NA DPC in Tour 3.
While Arkosh remained under the radar, the post-TI11 roster shuffle season hits NA hard. This month saw Evil Geniuses - one of NA's strongest advocates- relocating to South America. NA's star midlaner Quinn also moves to Europe to play with Gaimin Gladiators.
Now that Arkosh Gaming has rebuilt featuring top Dota 2 streamers, a few from other regions - NA sees a ray of hope. This lineup, apart from being memey, unironically looks promising. But before anything else, Arkosh has to qualify for NA DPC through the Open Qualifiers that is to begin in a few more hours. Find out more about NA DPC Tour 1 Open Qualifiers here.
