History[edit]

This section is an excerpt from History of Team Secret

After Natus Vincere and Fnatic both underperformed at The International 2014, two key members of the two organizations, Kuroky and N0tail, respectively, had an idea for a team that was run by the players, not beholden to any esports organization. Kuroky brought on his friend and teammate on Na'Vi, Puppey, while N0tail brought on his friend and teammate, Fly. They rounded out their roster with Alliance midlaner s4, whose team similarly underperformed at TI4. The roster made their public debut in the qualifiers for Star Ladder Star Series Season 10.

Timeline[edit]

  • August 27th - Secret Team reveal their roster in their first official match in Star Ladder Star Series Season 10.[1] Officially, BigDaddy, Fly and s4 were still under contract with their previous teams. Shortly afterwards, Fnatic officially announced their player's departures.[2]
  • September 3rd - Alliance announces the departure of s4.[3]
  • December 16th - After being inactive for a short period of time, Simbaaa officially leaves the team.[4]
  • May 4th - Team Secret and pieliedie part ways. YapzOr joins as the new position 4 player while Puppey moves to position 5.[19]
  • June 11th - SunBhie joins as a coach.
  • August 14th - Team parts ways with MP and KheZu.[20]
  • September 5th - Ace and Fata are officially confirmed to be on the new Team Secret roster.[21] Fata, typically a mid, moves to offlane on this new roster.
  • September 5th - Ace and Fata depart from Team Secret.[22]
  • September 11th - Nisha and zai join the remaining members of the team to complete the roster for the 2018/19 DPC season.[23]
  • November 4th - A new roster for the 2019/20 DPC season is announced: MidOne steps down from the active roster and coach SunBhie parts ways with the team. They are replaced by MATUMBAMAN who will be playing the carry role and Heen as coach while Nisha switches to the mid lane.[24]
  • December 30 - MidOne leaves the team.[25]
