Casters nightmare and top North American Dota 2 team TEAM TEAM have been acquired by esports organization Beastcoast just days before the MLD Major at Disneyland Paris.
In a news post on its website, Beastcoast revealed that the roster of Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao, Eric “Ryoya” Dong, Braxton “Brax” Paulson, Timothy “tmt” Ong, and Michael “ixmike88” Ghannam would now compete under their banner.
In a statement published alongside the announcement, Beastcoast team captain ixmike88 described how the team were “proud to represent Beastcoast as their first Dota 2 team. We are excited for this opportunity and grateful for the resources and support that has been provided to us. We look forward to a successful partnership and thank all our fans for their continued support.”

TEAM TEAM’s first tournament under their new, more better-named mantle comes after a pair of fifth and sixth place finishes in their past two Major appearances. The team have also secured the top spot in a number of this year’s regional Minors.
At ESL Mumbai, the roster turned heads with their tongue-in-cheek “team shirts”—Red sleeveless t-shirts with TEAM TEAM seemingly scrawled on the front in black marker pen. Under the Beastcoast brand, the team will instead don a more typical esports uniform.
The new Beastcoast roster will be in action this Saturday, May 4, kicking off the group A action at MDL Disneyland Paris Major against Virtus.pro.
