“We are whole again,” announced Alliance today, September 10, 2020 as the Dota 2 roster is complete for the first time since March with the official signing of Artsiom “fng” Barshak.
Joining Alliance in full capacity marks the first time in fng’s career when he will play full time for a non-CIS organization. After Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok and Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev, fng also becomes only the third CIS Dota 2 player to venture outside his region and join a non-Russian/Ukrainian speaking roster.
Him joining Alliance today doesn’t come to anyone’s surprise.
fng stood in for the Swedish organization since May this year, played under the Alliance colors in eight online tournaments and helped the team reach two grand finals over the last few months.
“The more the team played with Artsiom, it became clear that he was more than just a standin,” said Alliance in their official announcement, while the team captain, Gustav “s4” Magnusson said the following:
“With fng joining our team we are not just getting a mechanically good support player, but also a very experienced captain and drafter. Can’t wait to see how many unexpected ideas we can come up with when we combine our game visions.”
