The South American squad no longer holds an active roster following announcement via Facebook.
South American squad Sacred has recently announced that the team will no longer be active on the Pro Circuit, as the organization disbanded its roster. The move comes after a relatively brief run on the Pro Circuit, with the team having formed around the end of the October. That short stint on the Pro Circuit saw the squad earn a handful of Top 4 finishes in regional qualifiers, including a 1st place performance that earned it a spot at the Dota Summit 8 Minor last December. That sole appearance on the Pro Circuit stage didn’t go particularly well for the team, with the South American squad posting an 0-6 overall record and finishing in last place at the event.
Given its poor performance at the Minor and the team’s decent but not quite inspiring results in its home region, Sacred appeared to be moving towards a change. That change came with the news that Benjamin “Benjaz” Lanaos would be leaving to team to join rival South American squad Mad Kingz. With the loss of the team’s carry as a catalyst, Sacred officially disbanded, with the remaining four players becoming free agents in the South American scene. It’s unclear at the moment if the four former members will be looking to reform its roster with another player, or if they will split up and join various other teams in the region. For now at least, the loss of Sacred opens up more opportunities within the South American region for other squads to step forward.
The now former roster of Sacred:
- Benjamin “Benjaz” Lanaos (Carry)
- Leonardo “Leostyle” Sifuentes (Mid)
- Renato “Kingteka” Garcia (Offlane)(Captain)
- Farith “Matthew” Puente (Support)
- Álex “Masoku” Dávila (Support)
