Fata’s team includes:

  • Oliver “Skiter” Lepko – born in Slovakia, Skiter has recently achieved more than 10,000 MMR in-game, having previously played for PENTA Sports, Ninjas in Pyjamas and CR4ZY.
  • Leon “Nine” Kirilin – Half German, half Russian, Nine is best known for being the first German player to reach 9,000 MMR, playing for the likes of PENTA Sports, Team Spirit and J.Storm.
  • Neta “33” Shapira – A skillful Israeli offlaner with many games under his belt on teams such as Alliance, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Optic Gaming and Hellraisers.
  • Malthe “Biver” Winther – A support player hailing from Denmark with a track record of playing for Natus Vincere and Ninjas in Pyjamas.

“The potential is sky high and we believe Fata will be able to steer the team in the right direction and challenge some of the biggest names on the Dota 2 esports scene.”

Tundra launched in 2019 with a top FIFA roster. In their first year they signed TikTok as principal partner and Kappa as the official sportive teamwear provider.

Maxim Demin, owner of Tundra, said: “Dota 2 continues to be a pinnacle esport and Mudgolems is a new team that is already making a name for itself and who share the same ambitions and passion as we do.

“The potential is sky high and we believe Fata will be able to steer the team in the right direction and challenge some of the biggest names on the Dota 2 esports scene. At Tundra we want to compete at the highest level and in the world’s biggest esports, which is why we believe an expansion into Dota 2 is a natural step for us. With that being said, we realise that success doesn’t come overnight either.”
