On October 21, Alliance released an update on their website detailing the latest changes to their Dota 2 roster — Linus “Limmp” Blomdin and Artsiom “fng” Barshak have both left the organization.
Limmp and fng were both part of the Alliance Dota 2 team that attended The International 10 (TI10). Alliance placed 9-12th in the tournament after losing 2-0 to T1 in the lower bracket round two.

Loda thanks fng and Limmp for their contributions to the team
Alliance qualified for TI10 after a good performance in the DPC seasons one and two.
They placed second at DreamLeague Season 14 DPC, and first at DreamLeague Season 15 DPC, giving them the required 800 points to attend TI10.
Jonathan “Loda” Berg the CEO and co-founder of the organization thanked both players for their help in qualifying for TI10.
“They were both an integral part of bringing Alliance back to TI this year and for that I will be forever thankful,” Loda wrote.
