Tundra Esports have unveiled their new Dota 2 roster! They’ve signed Team Undying, or better known as the ex-TSM squad.
Tundra Esports has announced the signing for the former Team SoloMid stack to round out their new roster. The announcement was made on Dec. 10 on Twitter, just a day before the start of ESL One Kuala Lumpur.
Although the new roster isn't the full ex-TSM squad, as Ari was signed to OG. However, with the addition of Aleksandr "Immersion" Khmelevskoi, the team seems to be gearing up for a dominant 2024 Dota 2 season.
Tundra Esports sign ex-TSM for their new Dota 2 roster
The former TSM stack, Team Undying, has been signed by Tundra Esports. As TSM exited the Dota 2 scene, Tundra was there to pick up the pieces. Now under a new banner, the new Tundra Esports roster are gearing up to show ESL One Kuala Lumpur and the Dota community as a whole why they are such a formidable team. The new Tundra Squad is comprised of:
- Enzo "Timado" Gianoli
- Jonathan "Bryle" De Guia
- Gainulin "Kasane" Ilyas
- Aleksandr "Immersion" Khmelevskoi
- Matthew "Whitemon" Filemon
It was quite the surprise to the Dota 2 community as a whole that Tundra Esports parted ways with their TI-winning roster. The previous iteration of the team consisted of Oliver "Skiter" Lepko, Neta "33" Shapira, Leon "Nine" Kirilin, Wu "Sneyking" Jingjun and two-time TI-winner Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen. Tundra had a great performance in their group stage of The International 2023. However, when it came to the main event, they had quite the rude awakening. As the team was eliminated in round one of the Lower Bracket by their WEU rivals, Entity.
Coincidently, TSM followed a similar path to Tundra at The International 2023, even participating in the same group. Also in a similar vein TSM got eliminated early on into TI by their NA brothers Nouns Esports. Despite the community being hopeful for North American Dota, all the NA teams fell flat at TI.
The Debut of the new roster
The Dota 2 ecosystem is always changing. With a new teammate on the roster, Tundra Esports has the experience and skill to go the distance. However, we won't know for sure. With ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 right around the corner, we will be finding out soon enough. But that doesn't just apply to the new Tundra. There have been a wide variety of roster changes since The International. As always, time will tell.
