“Dota 2 has always been one of my personal favorite game titles to be a part of, and one of my favorite games to watch as a fan. Team Singularity’s presence in Dota 2 has been on and off since we entered in start Q2 2017. The last year we’ve tried to solidify our place among the top teams in EU, but EU is without a doubt the most stacked region and unfortunately haven’t we been able to achieve the goals set up for the team in the period. I might be a bit bias, but I believe the rosters we’ve represented within the last year would probably have been able to achieve the goals set forth for the team if they were playing in another region than EU.

I wish all the players the best of luck in their future journey, and I hope to see them rise to the top of the scene in their future homes. I also want to give a special thanks to Noah “Th3ReaLJP” Eigenheer and Steve “Xcalibur” Ye that have been a consistent part of the last 14 months under the Team Singularity banner.”

“It’s already been a year on team singularity. The past year has been filled with its ups and downs and multiple roster changes but one thing for sure is that we tried our hardest. I think all my teammates are extremely skilled but it’s no secret that the European region is extremely strong at the moment. Unfortunately our current roster didn’t fill each other’s holes enough to be able to compete with the best of the best so we decided to split up following the release of Team Singularity.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and the opportunity to play with so many different players and I want to thank all the players I’ve played with since they’ve all helped me become a better player and a better person. I also want to thank Noa and Mettrim for sticking with me this whole year. Lastly I want to thank Atle and Team Singularity for believing in me and I’m sorry we didn’t manage to achieve the results we hoped for. I wish everyone involved the best of luck in the future.”

”After long consideration, Team singularity decided to drop the Dota 2 roster. Our heart has always been in this game and the passion kept us going. We’ve had a rollercoaster of a year and it saddens us that we have to part ways with Dota 2. The reality is harsh and so is the EU region. We were not able to qualify to a Lan within a year and failed to exceed our expectations in the DPC qualifiers. We tried to move to the CIS region and had preparations ongoing, but unfortunately Valve reminded us that it was against their guidelines. Shortly after, the 4th DPC qualifiers got cancelled and we had to re-evaluate our position within the Dota 2 Community. It is still very likely that the 5th DPC event will be cancelled too and the only chance to make it to TI will be through the regional closed qualifier. This scenario makes it difficult to sustain a team and ultimately, we decided that it would be the best for the players and for Team singularity to part ways. While we discussed our decision, the players had their own talks going on and agreed that they needed some drastic changes. We’re happy to see that we can part ways with our players on good terms. We wish our players the best of luck moving forward and we hope to cross paths again in the future.

Dota 2 Team Singularity will very likely make a reappearance in October 2020 with the introduction of the new league system. Until then we hope to see our ex-players thrive under new banners and a new TI champion!”
