Soniqs is pulling out of the Dota 2 scene after just three months, following a disappointing showing at The International 11.
Soniqs will be letting go of its entire roster, the North American organization announced today. The org first entered the Dota 2 scene in August, signing the Quincy Crew stack, and will no longer have a roster in the scene.
The organization had previously dropped Rodrigo “LESLÃO” Santos almost immediately following Soniqs’ elimination from TI11 due to an offensive Dota 2 effigy.
No more Soniqs — will Quincy Crew be coming back?
Despite being one of the most consistent teams in the NA DPC, Soniqs was one of four teams eliminated in the group stages of TI11.
Quincy Crew’s team manager, Jack “KBBQ” Chen, said that the team will eventually come back — but that the name only be used for “a team with the highest aspirations.”
“For now we are scattered to the winds,” KBBQ wrote on Twitter. “Some will be taking breaks, others may form or join a stack together.”
The team’s former position four, Arif “MSS” Anwar, also said that he was looking for a team as a position four or five.
