Secret shakes roster ahead of Philippine trip

By Ivan Saldajeno

MANILA--Despite taking home the Shanghai Major championship, Secret made a major roster adjustment as announced by the club on Wednesday.

The DOTA 2 team welcomed back Artour Babaev while also bringing in his teammate at EG Saahil Arora.

Babaev, more known by his in-game name Arteezy, has been switching sides from EG to Secret since 2014, and this time he will play more of a midlaner, replacing Aliwi "W33haa" Omar.

On the other hand, Arora, also known as Universe, takes over the offlaner spot vacated by Rasmus Flipsen.

Babaev and Arora's transfer leaves EG with holes to fill in as the transfer window will close in a few days.

Secret aims to add the ESL One Philippines title to its portfolio on April 23-24 while also looking forward to the Spring Major, also known as the Manila Major, on June 7-12.
