Team Undying's roster decide to stick together during the shuffle

After a strong performance in the 2020-21 Dota 2 Pro Circuit, the Team Undying roster has decided to stick together in the post-The International shuffle. The North American squad’s roster has remained intact but they have parted ways with their coach Kim ‘Febby’ Yong-min.

Undying had a strong performance throughout the DPC as the third-best NA team behind Evil Geniuses and Quincy Crew. They also impressed at TI as they beat some strong teams including fellow NA squad, EG and even Invictus Gaming in the group stage.

When it came to the main stage, it was a disappointing ending for Undying as they lost to Fnatic in the do-or-die best-of-one series in the lower bracket. They were still impressive because they made it to TI without a primary sponsor. That is basically unheard of in the modern era but they managed to pocket $600,300 for their 13th-16th finish at Dota’s biggest stage.

Undying had a strong performance in the group stage, but their record wasn’t enough to make the upper bracket. When it comes to the Bo1 lower bracket games, anything is possible which was what ultimately ended Undying’s run. However, their performance was enough to convince the players to run it back with the same roster. They love playing with each other and they can back it up with the amount of prize money they won throughout the year.

Team captain David ‘MoonMeander’ Tan released a statement regarding their decision to stick together for the next DPC season. He said, ‘I hope to one day achieve my dream of holding the Aegis of the Immortal at TI with my teammates. I'm proud to announce that Team Undying is not making any roster changes. If only you guys could see the bromance messages they send each other on Discord. The love, respect, and kindness these guys possess, have humbled me as a captain’.

Undying will live up to their team name in the NA region as they look to become the top squad. Quincy Crew has disbanded and EG will most likely be the other top threat. This is Undying’s chance to stand out and they are ready to do so with a more mature squad.
