The full Post-TI7 Dota 2 roster shuffle tracker

Following all the player changes and roster updates.

The weeks following The International are always the trickiest for most teams in Dota 2, as each one must work through their post-event reflections and emotions to figure out how to move forward. This year will be especially tricky, as many Western and non-Chinese teams didn’t perform as well as they feel they could have, with only two making the top six at TI7.

The new competitive ecosystem will only cause more of a question in this regard. Teams will now have their eyes on optimizing the number of “Qualifying Points” they’ll accumulate through the Majors/Minors system, meaning that teams will likely want to at least qualify for every event possible in order to accumulate a fair number of points.

Here, we’ll be keeping track of every roster change that you need to know about since approximately The International 7’s Main Qualifiers in late June. This post will be updated frequently, so keep it bookmarked!

Note: At the moment, we don’t have word on the roster lock dates but we will update here when that is shared. This is also manually updated.
