Steak Gaming is dead, long live No Diggity! Troels "syndereN" Nielsen and Adrian "Era" Kryeziu have put together a new squad in time for the Manila Major roster lock and it features both new and familiar faces.

The newest face on the squad will be a familiar face for those acquainted with the HoN pro scene — Maurice "KheZzu" Gutmann, well known for his many achievements while playing Heroes of Newerth. He only switched games late last year, and but did not form a team before the Shanghai Major roster lock. In the mean time he has been playing with COOKISS, who made it to the Round of 16 in the second Shanghai Major European open qualifier.

Yazied "YapzOr" Jaradat has made a name for himself playing on various mid-tier European squads such as Balkan Bears, Monkey Freedom Fighters and Mamas Boys.

Max "qojqva" Broecker is well known for his time on Team Liquid and Team Tinker, but most recently played for mousesports. He took a break from competitive Dota 2 in June 2015, so joining No Diggity marks his return.

Both syndereN and Era have stuck together from their short lived squad Steak Gaming, which was formed in time to compete in the Shanghai Major EU open qualifier. They lost to Kaipi in the first Round of 16 and didn't make it to the Round of 32 the second time around, but showed promise.

The formation of Steak Gaming marked syndereN's return to competitive play after almost two years spent as a caster and analyst. Era was a long time member of Fnatic.EU followed by Ninjas in Pyjamas, who were reasonably successful but fell short of attending any Valve events before disbanding in late 2015.
