Mid or Feed was forced to make a roster change just weeks into the new competitive season as captain Saksa decided to leave the team to take a break from competitive Dota 2. According to his twitlonger, Saksa felt burned out and had even originally considered taking a break after TI7. He has now been replaced by syndereN, who's team No Diggity disbanded just weeks after its formation as well.
Team Secret has had a strong start into the season, dominating all the European qualifiers and securing their participation at 4 events of the new competitive circuit. As an invited team to the Perfect World Masters, Secret only had three qualifiers to play thus far, but showcased that they are in form with dominant performances and results. Across three qualifier finals, Secret has not dropped a single game, defeating the likes of mousesports and OG 2-0 after a strong 3-0 finish over SFT.
