The Norwegian esports organisation Heroic has signed a Dota 2 roster. At first glance, this news has zero importance to the fighting games community. However, there are some details around this signing that might seem interesting:
1. Heroic was never presented in Dota 2 before. Dota 2 is more than ten years old, and while there were some recent changes in its professional scene, we can't say it is being reborn.
2. Heroic signed the squad from South America. It is a decent roster, but salaries in this region are usually way lower than those European players ask.
3. Heroic is the second esports club to recently enter Dota 2 with a roster from another region. Earlier, G2 Esports announced a partnership with Chinese club Invictus Gaming.
This acquisition might be explained by the fact that Heroic is looking forward to the Esports World Cup. Dota 2 tournament will have a great prize pool, and the concept of club awards might lead to these organisations signing fighting game players. We made a video about this topic, and Heroic entering Dota 2 might be another step towards that trend.
