PENTA Sports are branching into Dota 2 with the acquisition of Greek Dota 2 organization Ad Finem, signing the German based team Going In to the team in the process, the organization announced Wednesday.

"We are proud to announce the acquisition of 'Ad Finem eSports,'" PENTA said in a statement. "We hope we can show all the fans of Ad Finem that PENTA Sports is going to invest substantially in the Dota 2 Scene. We also want to give a warm welcome to Alex Mavroudis, Nikos Fotinakis and Marios Papasarantos who have built up Ad Finem from zero to hero. They are going to help grow our new Dota 2 team and assist in integrating Dota 2 as a second main title alongside CS:GO at PENTA Sports."

Ad Finem have been without a Dota 2 squad since March 6, when the team's roster decided not to renew their contracts with the organization. ex-Ad Finem is best known for their spectacular run at The Boston Major where the team placed second, and have since received an invite to The Kiev Major in April.

PENTA Sports Dota 2 roster is now as follows:

  • Mathis “Jabbz” Friesel
  • Jamal “Blazemon” Sohail
  • Dino “dnz” Šavuk
  • Max “Mikey” Barke
