Team Secret announced some sensational changes to their Dota 2 roster, with MidOne being replaced by MATUMBAMAN.

Secret enjoyed a successful 2018-19 Dota Pro Circuit season but were unable to end the campaign on the ultimate high - victory at TI9.

Team Secret opted not to play in the first events of the 2019-20 DPC season and confirmed they would open their season with qualifiers for DreamLeague Season 13 - The Leipzig Major.

Out with the old...

On Monday, Team Secret revealed the changes to the roster and coaching staff in a detailed announcement.

The statement on the official Team Secret website read: "The first of two new additions to the roster is none other than legendary carry Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen. Matu brings a phenomenal track record of tournament success, and is most famously known, aside from memes, for lifting the Aegis of Champions at The International 2017.

"Matu is a veteran of the scene, and is known for his unique and invasive hero specialisation. He will be playing the carry role in our new lineup and Nisha will move to the mid lane. We look forward to adding his skills, and his personality, to the team and we warmly welcome him to the Secret family.

"Secondly, we would like to welcome Lee “Heen” Seung Gon as our new coach to the team. Heen is vastly praised for his coaching ability and deep insight in the top echelons of the DotA scene, proving invaluable to Team Liquid’s success in 2017 and victory at TI7.

"His recent time spent with TNC has reflected clearly in their results, and we look forward to his presence to be felt in drafting, within the game, and our camaraderie as a team. Heen will be working closely with Puppey to guide us ever closer to our ultimate goal of winning TI."

DreamLeague 13 and Singapore

Team Secret confirmed the new-look team would start the DPC season by attempting to qualify for Dream League Season 13 and would also head to Singapore for the One Esports World Pro Invitational.
