Dendi to stand-in for Team Secret in Maincast's Autumn Brawl

Artem Uarabei

Yesterday, Team Secret announced that Zheng "MidOne" Yeik Nai would not be able to participate in Russian studio Maincast's Autumn Brawl tournament. Instead, an "old friend" of captain Clement "Puppey" Ivanov would join the team for the tournament.

While the tweet did not reveal who was to stand-in for MidOne, rumors immediately started surfacing saying that Secret would use Danil "Dendi" Ishutin as a stand-in. Today the org confirmed that Dendi would, indeed, join them for the tournament:

The "old friend" statement is the least you could say about Dendi playing with Puppey again, the two have not played together since Puppey left Natus Vincere after TI4, back in 2014. Dendi stayed true to his organization up until this summer where — after failing to qualify for TI8 — the midplayer decided to part ways with NaVi.

Dendi (stand-in)
MidOne (on holiday)
