Just a few days after Lasse ‘MATUMBAMAN’ Urpalainen was made inactive from the Team Liquid Dota 2 roster, it seems like he has found a new team. The team that might have picked up MATUMBAMAN is none other than w33haa’s old team (w33haa is Matu’s replacement in Liquid), Chaos Esports Club. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet, but a video posted by the organization on Twitter hinted at the fact that the Finnish player is the new carry in their ranks.
Chaos Esports Club’s captain, Rasmus ‘Misery’ Flipsen is seen in the video picking up a pair of shorts. Now those shorts look very familiar and are quite famous in the Dota 2 community as Matu’s lucky shorts that helped Liquid win TI7!
Looking at the video and the title which mentions the ‘new guy’, it is quite clear that Matu has in fact joined Chaos Esports Club in their fight to make it to The International 2019. But till we don’t have any official confirmation, nothing can be said for sure. For all we know, Misery and Chaos EC might just be playing a prank on the Dota 2 Community!
