Coming from The International 2019 with a top eight finish, a record for the South American region, the five players of Infamous decided to part ways with the organization and look for better opportunities to start the new season.
Hector “K1” Rodriguez, Jean Pierre“Chris Luck” Gonzales, Adrian “Wisper” Dobles, Elvis De la Cruz “Scofield” Peña, and Steven “StingeR” Vargas were signed by the Peruvian origination just ahead of the TI qualifiers. Prior to that, they were playing as Team Anvorgesa, a stack free of any sponsors, that took the SA scene by storm through the last couple of months of the previous season. The top eight finish at TI9 gave the players a huge image boost, but regardless of their achievement in Shanghai, South America is still considered one of the weakest and most unstable regions, so not many organizations are willing to jump and sign a roster that competes in SA. Despite that some of the biggest names in the Esports world were looking in the post TI9 shuffle to sing a full new team, the Anvorgesa players remained without a contract.
However, as the team is about to start the road to TI10 with the first round of Major and Minors qualifiers this weekend, the North American organization Beastcoast made the jump to SA and signed the five Anvorgesa members.
“Beastcoast has always been about supporting emerging talent and having fun, and we think this team is the epitome of that approach. Anvorgesa caught my eye at TI9 before they even stepped on to the stage. Their growth as a team over the last DPC season, and their will to win are all things that we as an organization want to promote. This was a natural fit, and we are excited to make waves with them this season,” said Beastcoast CEO, Grant Zinn.
Beastcoast roster from position 1 to 5:
- Hector “K1” Rodriguez
- Jean Pierre “Chris Luck” Gonzales
- Adrian “Wisper” Dobles
- Elvis De la Cruz “Scofield” Peña
- Steven “StingeR” Vargas
Beastcoast entered the Dota 2 field this year in May, when they signed Team Team ahead of the MDL Disneyland Major. Unfortunately, their first roster brought a lot of drama around it because of the infamous Gunnar kick. By the end of the same month, when they made their Dota 2 debut, Beastcoast were already making the first changes to their line-up as Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao and Timothy “tmt” Ong departed from the team. The TI9 qualifiers run ended for Beastcoast in the lower bracket finals, where they got bested by J.Storm. A week ago, they fielded a temporary line up in the Midas Mode 2.0, but the stack disbanded literally mid tournament. Hopefully, the South American team Anvorgesa will bring Beastcoast the first stories of success with the 2019-2020 competitive season.
