We are only a month removed from the recent Dota Pro Circuit Regional Qualifier, but many teams are already shaking up their rosters, particularly in South America with the departure of Danylo “Kingrd” Nascimento from SG esports and No Ping parting ways with William “hFn” Medeiros.
South American Dota Roster Changes: SG esports part ways with Kingrd
Kingrd has mutually decided to part ways with SG esports. He was originally on the team throughout the South American Dota season, but was replaced by Otávio “Tavo” Gabriel Cerqueira Silva midway through the season. He remained with SG esports as a substitute in case a player could not play. While he looked for opportunities elsewhere, he was able to participate in the North American Regional Qualifier as a part of Bumble bEEs. However, the team did not make it out. This move makes sense from both sides, as Kingrd will have the opportunity to look for a new team ahead of the DPC season.
Kingrd performed admirably for Bumble bEEs and got them all the way to the Loser’s bracket finals. Now that South America has three slots to The International next year, South American Dota will be more competitive than ever.
Gostaríamos de anunciar a rescisão do atleta Danylo "Kingrd" Nascimento com a equipe SG esports.
Desejamos boa sorte para o jogador em seus novos projetos.

NoPing esports played extremely well this year, considering they were the newcomers to the scene. They were the first seed going into the WePlay AniMajor, and brought it to an incredibly close game three against Evil Geniuses. However, they were not able to go further than that. Their disappointing loss in the South American Dota Regional Qualifier marked the end of the team’s season. Due to how well the team did in the regular season, fans did not see an imminent roster change in NoPing esports’ roster. This news came as a surprise and brought up the question of who could serve as a replacement. The carry position on one of the strongest teams in South America now has a vacancy.
