Tundra, a London based esports organisation known for their international roster of the world’s best FIFA players is pleased to reveal their expansion into Dota 2 with the acquisition of Mudgolems, a new and upcoming European team.

“Signing a new roster in a new game is a significant investment for any esports organisation and not an overnight decision. 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,” said Maxim Demin, owner of Tundra. “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.”

“Tundra Esports and I share the same drive to build a force within the Dota2 Esport scene and I believe this will let me take the team to the next level,” said Adrian “Fata” Trinks, Team Captain of Tundra’s Dota 2 team.

Adrian “Fata” Trinks has a strong roster of players supporting him, including:
