J.Storm tinkered with their roster just ahead of the TI9 regional qualifiers when they benched Jonathan “bryle” Santos De Guia and Park “March” Tae-won. A few weeks later they were playing for a spot at the biggest tournament of the year with Sivatheeban “1437” Sivanathapillai in support 5 position and with the German mid laner Leon “Nine” Kirilin.
Despite their efforts, J.Storm didn’t make it through the NA qualifiers for TI9 and the rumors regarding a possible roster change started to be spread after the tournament concluded in Shanghai China, when Na’Vi tweeted a picture of Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok visiting their offices.
Resolut1on himself had a couple of Instagram shares from his time spent back at home, in Ukraine, but he never implied that he would switch teams. At the same time, during the short vacation between TI9 and the new Dota Pro Circuit Season, J.Storm’s latest addition, 1437 has been constantly streaming his Dota Underlords sessions and his grind in the Lord of White Spire ranks, which some took as another hint that J.Storm might indeed undergo a shuffle.
However, WePlay! announced today, September 17, the first invited team to the playoffs stage of the $50,000 Reshuffle Madness 2019 tournament. That team is J.Storm and according to WePlay!’s announcement, the roster is unchanged.
- Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok
- Leon “Nine” Kirilin
- David “Moo” Hull
- Clinton “Fear” Loomis
- Sivatheeban “1437” Sivanathapillai
- coach: Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho
J.Storm will enter the battle at Reshuffle Madness 2019 on the 25th of September when the playoffs are scheduled to begin. The tournament will commence, however, on the 21st of September with its group stage matches.
