Following their last place exit at the ongoing MDL Disneyland Paris major, after losing against fellow Brazilians paiN Gaming, Chaos Esports Club have announced that they have released two players from their DOTA 2 roster.
The two unfortunate players are Otavio “tavo” Gabriel, who played the role of offlaner for the team and Danylo “Kingrd” Nascimento, who was the position 5 support for this roster.
Their disastrous last-place finish at the ongoing major was the main reason for the release among other reasons, which can be read in the statement provided by Chaos Esports Club in their official statement.
“Following disappointing results at the MDL Paris Major, we are releasing Kingrd and tavo as the first step of our roster rebuild. Both players brought a lot skill, passion, and levity to the team. Unfortunately, the team is at an impasse in terms of results and a change is required. We still love our South American fans, but the logistics of operating in Brazil were more difficult than we anticipated, regardless of the situation within the squad. We will be revealing our full squad in the coming days.”
Chaos Esports released a video explaining the decision as well, on their twitter handle.
The Twitter video provides some more details about the reason for the change, about how difficult it was to support a team in Brazil, the rules regarding housing and selling merchandise are not flexible and supportive.

The new players will be announced soon.
The current incomplete Chaos Esports Club roster is as follows:
- William ‘hFn’ Medeiros
- Aliwi ‘w33’ Omar
