Pain Gaming locks new Dota 2 roster by adding Mandy, Kingrd and Dunha1 to the fold. This news comes to light on the heel of Lelis' Twitlonger post that hinted at a possible disbandment
They have replaced 4dr, Lelis and Thiolicor and will be seen playing in the SA closed qualifiers for DreamLeague Major. Pain Gaming has managed to retain hfn and 444 in the process and are hoping to deliver good results. As everyone is aware, the previous iteration of Pain hasn't been able to deliver results that most likely caused the shuffle in the first place.
Interestingly, 4dr, Lelis and Thiolicor have joined hands with Tavo -- formerly of Pain/Chaos -- and Mini to create their own stack. However, they most likely won't be participating in the upcoming DreamLeague qualifiers.
With this, it'll be interesting to see how SA teams pair up when compared to their NA compatriots, especially at this point in time with the release of 7.23 patch.
