Rasmus “MISERY” Filipsen is now officially a free agent and he can start looking for new opportunities ahead of the second round of Major and Minor qualifiers of the 2019-2020 Dota Pro Circuit season.
Misery was an important piece of Chaos’ existence in the Dota field since 2016. He led the TI6 roster into the grand finals, later on, he followed his teammate Aliwi “w33” Omar in South America, became a coach for paiN Gaming, and helped the players to find a home when things went south with their organization. At the beginning of 2019, Chaos Esports took a leap of faith and switched regions by signing the former paiN Gaming line-up. For the most part of the previous DPC season, they played via SA, but just ahead of the last Major of the season, they released two of their Brazilian players and moved to Europe. The shuffle continued for them up until the TI9 regional qualifiers, when they completed their roster with Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen and Cheng “vtFαded” Jia. They made it to The International 2019, but got knocked out in the group stages. Chaos didn’t make any big announcements in the post TI9 shuffle, although a couple of their players have left the team. vtFaded joined EHOME, Matumbaman announced an extended break and Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann joined Godsent.
A bit more than a month ahead of the next round of Major and Minor qualifiers, Chaos has finally announced the dissolution of the entire team and thanked Misery for his time spent with them.
“The impact that Misery has had on the development of Chaos EC cannot be understated and we will always be grateful for all of his efforts,” posted Chaos Esports on their website while the organization CEO, Greg Laird had the following to add:
“Rasmus has personally contributed more to the growth and development of the Dota 2 program of Chaos since its inception (including the historic 2016 TI run) than any other player. Over the years I have become close personal friends with Rasmus and I am extremely sad to see him go but sincerely wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.”
With the disbandment of the roster, Milan “MiLAN” Kozomara is also joining the rather long list of free agents heading into the DreamLeague Leipzig Major qualifiers.
