As fall approaches, so does the next season of ASUS ROG DreamLeague, the longest regularly running league in Dota. Today DreamHack and ASUS ROG are excited to announce the new line-up for ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 6. Fresh off roster swap season, this will be the first time to see many recently updated play against each other. Take a peak into the future of Dota with us as teams young and old battle it out for dominance in the post-TI6 world.
- The season 5 champions OG will be back. Can N0tail and Fly be champions for a 3rd time in a row with a different roster?
- The new, full Swedish line up definitely want to make it to LAN. As does the crowd in Jönköping, who are always roaring for the hometown heroes Alliance to win.
- Evil Geniuses will be making their reappearance in their league, attempting a second championship victory since their win in Season 2.
- Natus Vincere, will be coming back for their fourth time in the league, and are looking to capture their first ASUS ROG DreamLeague trophy.
- Vega Squadron are making their third showing. Captain fng at the helm will look to keep his spot as best post-game interview in Dota.
- Team Liquid were last seen in Season 1 with a very different, and NA based roster. But with their return in season 6 with Miracle- and Bulba they look to mix new and old.
- A newcomer to the league, with a mix of South East Asia and Europe in their blood, is Team Secret.
- Escape gaming are one of the other rare teams who did not change roster. Will this prove to help them as they’ve already bonded as a team? Only time will tell.
