Polaris Esports has released its Dota 2 roster. The Philippines organization has been unable to compete financially with more affluent colleagues in the esports arena.
"It is with a heavy heart that we announce the team and players' mutual separation. It's not a secret that Polaris Esports is still a relatively young and small organization and as such we cannot go toe to toe with the financial capabilities of other, much larger, and established organizations. There were offers for the players that were too far out of our reach and there are also wishes from our members to go and try a different environment," said the Polaris Esports statement.
However, the organization is not going to leave the Dota 2 scene and intends to form a new team.
"We are observing players and talent with potential and will continue the journey from scratch!" Polaris noted.
Polaris' Dota 2 squad was:
- John "Natsumi-" Vargas
- Mc "Lelouch-" Villanueva
- Nikko "Force" Bilocura
- Marvin "Xavius" Rushton (captain)
- Nico "eyyou" Barcelon
