Team Secret sign up for TI6 Open Qualifiers

Esports Asia News
Team Secret have signed up on the FACEIT platform in advance of The International 6 open qualifiers, and both coach Theeban “1437” Siva and Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling are listed on the roster. Most of the players’ names are close enough to their regular handles to see who is who, but for the more creative nicknames, the FACEIT profiles are linked to steam profiles. “Lorne-malvo” is Sam “BulBa” Sosale, and “peanutpie” is Johan “pieliedie” Åström. Theeban “1437” Siva is the team’s coach, and Matthew “Cyborgmatt” Bailey is Secret’s Manager. FACEIT’s platform does not distinguish between main roster and substitute/coach/manager. Team Secret’s last place finish at The Manila Major inspired some roster moves, as Saahil “Universe” Arora moved back to Evil Geniuses as offlaner BulBa joined Secret. The changes make Team Secret ineligible for a direct invite to The International 6 or the regional qualifiers, so the team will be forced to play through open qualifiers for a chance at competing in Seattle. Aui_2000 had been a part of Evil Geniuses since the pre-Manila Major roster shuffle, but when Universe returned to EG, Ludwig “zai” Wåhlberg also came back and joined the team after a year-long hiatus. The shuffle left the TI5 champion without a roster for TI6, but as a part Team Secret he now has a chance to attend, although his official role on the team has not been disclosed.   [Source: TheScore]
