Danil “Dendi” Ishutin is the face of Dota 2 Professional scene. He, recently, worked on his team his Dota 2 team, B8 to bring in some fresh faces.
Dandi at the all-new setup with B8 encircled himself with less settled names than they had in the past. Dendi is hoping to end the losing streak and come to the top with an arrangement of relatively young ones from lesser-known teams rather than gathering up arbitrary free agents.
The new faces around the Sweed will be Dmitriy “Fishman” Polishchuk and Oleg “LastHero” Demidovich from Belarus, Arets “Crystallis” Remco from Netherland, and Enis “5up” Elfki from Germany.
Debutants and the leavers
The new team debuted in the closed qualifiers for BEYOND EPIC’s European and CIS League. This is a new league by the company that organizes Epicenter competitions.
After getting released from the B8 roster KingR and Ghostik are free agents in the Dota 2 circuit. Both of them were a part of B8 active roster that brought in overwhelmingly negative results since the team’s establishment. The team consistently lost a large number of matches in a number of big events. They lost 26 matches in a row making them the worst professional Dota 2 team having the longest losing streak.
Youngsters in B8
Dendi while shaping B8 encircled himself with prepared players of top organizations from CIS. That was something of astonishment after Dendi came back to Dota 2 action in late 2019 with MR Team, a team that discovered snappy achievement in the regional competitions. Team hunting activities by bigger organizations negatively affected MR. It was the time when the MR team ultimately became B8, a team that was very unique at that point.
The B8 roster is still very strong on the paper as it is a team made out of players from top organizations. Be that as it may, the team disappointed at every step of the way, completing in the last spot in pretty much every competition it contended in.
We're ready to announce BEYOND EPIC Tournament!
The event will feature two divisions: Europe/CIS and China, with the best teams and total prize pool of $250 000 😎

The new B8 roster almost has unknown players. Though Fishman and LastHero are more prepared, as both of them played together for Vega Squadron in 2019 but 5up and Crystallis featured only in different regional in-house leagues and qualifiers.
Did you miss the tournament games? We did! We received an invitation to closed qualifications for BEYOND EPIC. The start is tomorrow.
We will try to break the losing streak with the following roster:

Dendi has been exceptional during his time at B8. However, it’s impossible that this new team will detonate to the highest point of the exceptionally competitive European and CIS scenes all at once. But we are sure that it can’t do any more terrible than the past roster.
