“After having discussed at length with the players, we have mutually agreed to part ways with the roster as they wish to embark on to success in different constellations,” the announcement reads. “We thank MoonMeander, MiSeRy, Resolut1on, w33 and Saksa for their time under our banner and wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavors.”
The roster, which consists of Roman “Resolution” Fominok, Aliwi “w33” Omar, David “MoonMeander” Tan, Rasmus “MiSeRy” Filipsen and Martin “Saksa” Sazdov, signed with Planet Odd on May 31. The team failed to qualify for TI7, as it finished fifth in the North American Qualifier.
The players won a total of $3.4 million for its second place finish in TI 6, and most recently placed third in the recent Boston Major as members of Digital Chaos before their move to the Thunderbirds in April. The players weren’t able to replicate their success as the Thunderbirds, however, placing 15th at the Kiev Major in April, and failing to qualify for The Summit 7.
Planet Odd is a relatively new esports organization, launching only two weeks before acquiring the Dota 2 roster. It also has teams in Counter-Strike and Hearthstone.
