The third episode titled ‘Back to my Roots” showed two major changes to Team Secret’s roster. Michal “Nisha” Jankowski locking away a bottle indicated that he would take over the carry role after Team Secret parted ways with Lasse “Matumbaman” Urpalainen.
The next clue was the glass of water with three ice cubes and a jester puppet found in the same comic-strip image, which hinted at iceiceice’s arrival to the roster.
Iceiceice will still be playing the offlane position which was relinquished by Ludwig “zai” Wahlberg, who recently moved to Team Liquid after Team Secret’s third-place finish at TI10.
”Pretty excited to be playing with Secret,” shared iceiceice. “It’s a perfect lineup for my playstyle, and Puppey has always been someone I’ve wanted to play with for the last 10 years. I love camels and I can’t wait to be punched by Puppey.”
