Dendi joins Lithium as Stand-In

The most famous free agent in Dota 2 has found another temporary home.

Danil “Dendi” Ishutin’s recent stint with Team Secret at the Maincast Autumn Brawl was underwhelming, with Na’Vi eliminating Team Secret from the tournament in an upset. However, Dendi remains an active Dota 2 pro and will soon look to impress with another team.

Dendi has announced that he will be playing for Team Lithium at the upcoming Dota Pro Circuit Minor tournament in Sweden. Dream League Season 10 boasts a $300,000 prize pool and has 500 DPC points up for grabs.

Team Lithium failed to qualify to the tournament directly, but with Team Liquid withdrawing for player health reasons and fellow qualifier Mango Bay disbanding, the European team was given a second chance to participate in the event.

Anas “MagE-” Hirzallah, Team Lithium’s mid player, had issues with his visa and will not be able to attend the tournament with his team. This led to the squad tapping the legendary Ukrainian star to temporarily take up the mid lane mantle.

Team Lithium bringing in fan favorite Dendi will surely boost the fan interest in the side. The Dota 2 community has carefully watched Dendi as he has looked to again prove himself after finally parting ways with Na`Vi.

The winner of the Dream League Season 10 tournament will receive $125,000, 150 DPC points, and a coveted spot at the Kuala Lumpur Major in November.
