A month ago organization signed Cooman and Afterlife and ended up with a complete roster. This new team already managed to win CIS qualifiers to DAC and take part in ESL One Katowice 2018. Despite failure against Dota scene best teams on ESL, Effect still display a great level of gameplay and motivation to win.

FlytoMoon:

Team called FTMX got an invite to the qualifiers through the 4th open quali's in CIS. Being a mix, FlyToMoon haven't really shown their gameplay yet and are considered "dark horses". Roster features strong players and it's an interesting mix of "oldies" and fresh blood.
