Dota 2 Roster Shuffle: 5 Teams That Need to Make a Change

The Dota 2 Roster Shuffle is in full swing following this year's incredible TI Grand Finals. While the rumor mill is spinning on the Dota 2 subreddit, we figured we would throw in our two cents on the teams that should reconsider their rosters.

Dota 2 Roster Shuffle: 5 Teams That Need to Make a Change

1. Chaos Esports Club

CEC has some big names in Misery and Matumbaman. The team went through several big roster changes just months before The International, but they just seemed to lack the cohesion of more established teams. Getting knocked out in the group stage will be a hard blow to the team's members.

2. Fnatic

After a lackluster year, Fnatic took home a T13-16 place at this year's TI. From the group stage to their early elimination on the main stage, it's clear that Fnatic doesn't have the flair needed to be a tier 1 team right now.

3. Natus Vincere

Na'Vi used to be a powerhouse, but ever since TI4, the organization has been struggling to find the right blend of players to have a real chance at the Aegis.

4. Newbee

Outside of the rumors of Newbee's disbandment, the team had a lot of high expectations coming into TI, and their 9-12 place position doesn't reflect that.

5. Virtus.Pro

VP had a pretty stable year, taking top three positions at three separate Majors, but they collapsed under the main stage pressure, causing many fans to speculate about the team's stability.
