Professionals from multiple organizations joined together to form the Chicken Fighters roster. In previous days, a very famous Dota 2 squad, Ninjas in Pyjamas announced that it will release all the players under its contract. The team gave up its roster due to an unclear path to financial stability. Three players from Ninjas in Pyjamas moved to form a new team, Chicken Fighters. Similarly, they also looked for other Swedish players to join. Eventually, the team booked two other professionals from OG Seed to create a complete Swedish stack. The team has played in several tournaments with some impressive results.
High Coast’s roster
As High Coast acquired the complete roster of Chicken Fighters, multiple professionals changed their roles in the game. The team currently consists of Ondrej ‘Supream’ Starha, Charlie Arat, Adrian ‘Era’ Kryeziu, Andreas ‘Xibbe’ Ragnemalm, and Rasmus ‘Chessie’ Blomdin. Under the new name, former OG Seed players Xibbe and Chessie have changed their roles in the game to fit Hard Support and Offlaner, respectively. The team is officially set to face competition like never before in the strongest region of the game.
High Coast Esports managed to qualify for the Upper Division of the Europe Regional League. The team became the last one to do so, to earn their chance at the upcoming Major. The team can also earn multiple DPC points for a place at The International.
