Even though Dendi has dropped off in recent years, leaving Na’Vi and searching for a new home, he is still one of the most recognizable names in Dota 2 esports. Now, Danil “Dendi” Ishutin has finally found a new team to play with and it comes just in time for The International 2019 qualifiers.

Dendi is one of the only players ever to make it to not one, not two, but three The International Grand Finals and won the first The International with his team Na’Vi. Now, the prolific player has joined The Pango in their mission to make it to The International 2019 starting in the open qualifiers, a daunting task to say the least.
Dendi’s previous team Tigers from the SEA region didn’t see much success at all and now, he is back to his home region (CIS) with The Pango. An announcement about the team was made on Twitter, which you can view below.

It is definitely too early to scream “Dendi is back!” but the team does look decent and I will certainly be following their progress during the qualifiers.
The Pango completely changed up their roster, only keeping Ghostik from their attempts this season. Check out the full roster below:
- Vladimir “Chappie” Kuzmenko
- Danil “Dendi” Ishutin
- Andrey “Ghostik” Kadyk
- Danial “yamich” Lazebny
- Mihail “Misha” Agatov
