September Shuffle: Team Secret’s Ace and FATA-


Two Cloud9 alumni will be joining Puppey’s side in his quest to reclaim the Aegis of the Immortal.

Ace and FATA- have been revealed to be joining the new lineup of Team Secret, replacing KheZu and MP who have left the organization early last month. Ace will be the new carry, while FATA- will move from the middle lane to the offlane, giving way to MidOne.

Both Ace and FATA- once were part of the Cloud9 organization, but in two different occasions with different iterations of the team. FATA-‘s stay in Cloud9 was preceded by his stint with Team NP along with EternalEnvy, MSS, pieliedie and Aui_2000. This version of Cloud9 picked up Team NP right after it qualified for TI7, and was immediately dropped as soon as the team broke up after finishing short in the same tournament. FATA-‘s stay with that team spanned less than three months.

Meanwhile, Ace’s entry into Cloud9 was through his team Danish Bears/The Imperial. Formed just several months before the version FATA- was in, Ace’s team was what made Cloud9’s organization return to Dota2 after more than a year’s absence in the scene. The Danish Bears/The Imperial team was also the team that TNC Pro Team went up against in the WESG 2016. After being let go by Cloud9 in mid-May, Ace stuck with most of his team and reformed Danish Bears, until he decided to do the old switcheroo and join Team Secret.

The roster for Team Secret is now complete, with MidOne retaining his midlane position and Puppey and YapzOr taking on the support role. It has been three years ever since Puppey formed Team Secret, and although it boasts of bagging the one one Valve Major that OG didn’t win, Team Secret have had lackluster performance in the grand stage, even losing to underdogs SG Esports in the Kiev Major earlier this year. Is this iteration of the team that will lead Puppey to the gold?
