SG Esports fold and paiN Gaming’s Dota 2 roster disband

Pain Gaming

Just when we thought the South American Dota 2 scene was on the rise, two of the most well-known SA organizations have decided that they will no longer be involved in Dota 2. Following these declarations, the only big name that’s left from this region is beastcoast. Luckily, the ex-Infamous roster is doing well, so it’s highly unlikely that they’ll go anywhere anytime soon.

SG esports

Although their recent results were not the best, SG esports was a vital part of the Dota 2 scene. Sadly, we won’t be seeing them in action anytime soon after this recent announcement. According to the official release, they will cease activities for an indefinite period of time.

Besides their a Dota 2 team, SG esports also had Hearthstone, PUBG, and Rainbow 6 Siege teams. Needless to say, all of them were among the best in their respective games.

Although the Brazillian organization claims this is not the final goodbye, it will be very hard for them to get back on their feet. Of course, we can only hope to see them back once more.

paiN Gaming

Although there has been no information from paiN Gaming themselves, Rodrigo “Lelis” Santos released a long statement where he announced the disbandment of paiN Gaming’s Dota 2 team. This is definitely a huge shock, especially for all the fans of the Brazillian team.

Only last year, paiN Gaming were considered to be one of the best teams in the world, with talents Aliwi “w33” Omar and Rasmus “MISERY” Filipsen pushing the team forward. Unfortunately, after a series of bad results, both stars left South America in favour of Europe.

The Brazillian team played in the Dota 2 Summit Minor last week. However, after a number of mistakes, they only managed a bottom two finish – which seems to have been the last nail in the coffin.

The next DPC qualifiers will begin in exactly one week from now, meaning that paiN Gaming still has time to find themselves a new team. That said, they have their work cut out for them.
