Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen is the most awaited player in DOTA Pro Circuit 2019/2020. After achieving poor results with the Chaos Esports Club at The International 2019, he decided to take a break from competitive DOTA 2.
Now, the long-awaited news related to his reappearance in the realm of competition is revealed, after he officially anchored in Team Secret, one of the giant teams in the world DOTA 2 arena.
The following roster from Team Secret at this time:
- Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen
- Michal “Nisha” Jankowski
- Ludwig “zai” Wahlberg
- Yazied “YapzOr” Jaradat
- Clement “Puppey” Ivanov
- Lee “Heen” Seung Gon (Coach)
There is no doubt about MATUMBAMAN’s achievements, especially when he was still in Team Liquid’s uniform since 2015. Various prestigious achievements were achieved, and his peak won the title of The International 2017, which increasingly catapulted his name.
Team Secret also officially brought in Lee “Heen” Seung Gon, a former Team Liquid coach and TNC Predator. Heen also helped Team Liquid win TI7, and successfully brought TNC through to TI9.
With this announcement, Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng is inactive. The Malaysian player decided to take a break from competitive longer. Not only that, they officially parted ways with Lee “SunBhie” Jeong Jae who was previously the team’s coach.
The Team roster’s newest debut will be in the DreamLeague Season 13: Leipzig Major qualification held in early December 2019. In addition, they will also be present at ONE Esports DOTA 2 World Pro Invitational as one of the competing teams. Later, they will face famous teams such as EG, Virtus Pro, and PSG LGD.
What do you think about the presence of Team Secret’s latest roster? Will the presence of MATUMBAMAN and Heen make them finally able to become TI 10 champions?
