Legendary Dota 2 midlaner and former International champion Danil ‘Dendi’ Ishuti has finally found a new roster to call home.

This will be the first time in Dendi’s Dota 2 career that he’ll officially play for a team other than Natus Vincere. Ever since joining the Ukrainian organization back in 2010, he had become synonymous with the Na’Vi name in Dota. With Na’Vi, Dendi won The International in 2011 before placing second at The International 2012 and 2013.

However, it was a not-so-pleasant ending to his storied career with Na’Vi. After failing to qualify for The International 2017 and 2018, Dendi’s time with the team came to an end. In September 2018, he was finally removed from the Na’Vi active roster, marking the end of an era for the Dota community.

Now, after a few months of inactivity, he has a new roster and challenge ahead of him.

The former International champion has joined Tigers, helping to complete the Malaysian-based organization’s roster.

The team announced the move on Twitter, posting: “A long time rival to our players, now ally. Let’s welcome Danil ‘Dendi’ Ishutin as the 5th member to join the Tigers family today! Bringing the team to a full roster. Fans of Tigers, we want to share this experience with you. Meet the new members of Tigers Dota . #roartigers”

Dendi joins the Mixed roster only two days after former Fnatic and Mineski midlaner Chai ‘Mushi’ Yee Fung linked up with the team. 

Moving forward, the Tigers roster now looks like:

  • Danil ‘Dendi’ Ishuti
  • Sivatheeban ‘1437’ Sivanathapillai
  • Chai ‘Mushi’ Yee Fung
  • David ‘Moonmeander’ Tan
  • Kenny ‘Xepher’ Deo

Dota: Dragon’s Blood will be coming to Netflix soon.

We’ve gathered all the information you need to know about Dota: Dragon’s Blood below, from the Netflix show’s release date to trailers and plot details.

Dota: Dragon’s Blood release date

Fans who are eager to find out if the new animated series will do Dota justice won’t have too long to wait, as it will be available to stream on Netflix from Thursday, March 25, 2021.

It’s expected that all eight episodes will arrive on the streaming service at the same time, meaning gamers will have some serious binge-watching in store for them.

Alongside the release date, Netflix also shared a first-look trailer. It gives us a glimpse of the anime-inspired art style we can expect from Dota: Dragon’s Blood, as well as some epic dragon-slaying action.

Another teaser trailer is expected to be released on February 19, 2021, while the main trailer should arrive on March 2, 2021. At that point, we’ll likely have a much better idea of what the series will be about.

Dota: Dragon’s Blood plot

Dragon’s Blood will focus on Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the Scourge from the face of the world. After encounters with a powerful and ancient eldwurm, Davion becomes tangled up in events far bigger than he could have ever imagined.

It’s not just Davion that Dota fans can look forward to, as the series will also heavily feature Mirana, the Princess of the Moon. She’s described as being on a secret mission of her own that will have a big impact on the Dragon Knight’s story.

“The cinematic animation, acting, and music are simply next level and I’m grateful to Valve for supporting our creative ambitions.”
