The news about the disbandment of the most famous clan Kingdom.Dota (former MYM) hit the DotA community and many questions occured.
What will happen to the clanless players, many gamer asked. Last evening the question was answered partially by H4nn1-. He joined the currently best DotA clan Kingsurf.International and will finally play together with his old friend Levent.
But what about the rest of ex-MYM? Maelk, MaNia and Pusher-Street will join the lately very successful danish-only clan Ravens.
New Ravens lineup:
As you can see, Misery kwoM (who joined Ravens a few days ago) and moods are not part of Ravens any longer. Last mentioned joined up with the top clan diamondZ last night and is now able to play with his old teammates of his former clan wicked.
New diamondZ lineup:
The future clans of MiseRy and kwoM are still unknown.
Former MYM about to disband?
Yesterday the Kingdom.DotA player h4nn1 has played an official match with Kingsurf.International and many people wondered about the future of ex-MYM
In the evening, Maelk made a post at the dota-allstars.com forum and imparts the community that they will probably break up the team.
Kai has had a desire to play with Ks.int for a long time. Their playstyle fits him perfectly and they have his longtime friend, Levent, and of course KuroKy who is also German, so its an obvious move for him to take. Personally I find them stronger than ever, and with their current form it's probably the strongest lineup there has ever been.
As for the rest of us, Pusher, MaNia- and I have been focusing on the upcoming Europeans Nationscup and playing with an all Danish lineup has rekindled the fun of the game. One of the reasons why we weren't performing in the end, was probably because each of us played and practiced with different teams. Kai with the Germans, Loda with his Swedes, us with our Danes whilst Ben has been more or less busy with school, meaning we had three to four different opinions on how the game should be played, which didn't work out as it has in the past.
As for Loda, I am not sure what he is going to do, but our focus is mainly on the Danish team and our actual lives over the course of the summer, so I doubt we'll be building up anything together.
Was a great ride, but it all fell apart with MYM coming to an end. I wish all of the guys the best of luck in their future teams.
MYM was on top of the DotA scene for years and has always managed to be one step further. I can not count how many recommended replays I have seen with Maelk and his team. And countles too are the achievements of that special team.
In the near future we will probably see the ex-MYM players in their respective nation team. Dota Maniacs wishes all the best to all of the members.

Live on Three Tonight with an Exclusive Announcement from Evil Geniuses!
While we reported on the professional gaming team Evil Geniuses picking up five American StarCraft players, the announcements are not done yet. Team EG’s Executive Director will appear on dj Wheat’s new podcast “Live on 3” with an exclusive announcement.
Readers should be familiar with dj Wheat as he has covered both WarCraft III and StarCraft along with Bunny and Tasteless (with their respective games) at past WCG events and BlizzCon. He is extremely passionate about what he does and we expect this announcement to be big!
Live on Three is a brand new podcast covering all aspects of competitive gaming, eSports and tournaments, casual and hardcore with a no holds barred approach. The show is very honest and has eSports personalities from every genre including Slasher (Quake) and Sirscoots (MLG). There is also an oppertunity for YOU to make your voice heard and call in. Want more StarCraft on the show? Call in and talk about it!
Past shows have discussed the possible split of the StarCraft community when StarCraft II drops, comparing it to Counter-strike 1.6/Source. On a recent episode they also got a chance to interview iNcontroL who was just signed to Evil Geniuses and was on the reality tv-gaming competition WCG Ultimate Gamer on Sci-Fi in the U.S.
There will be discussion on tonight’s show about the newly formed StarCraft team and an exclusive announcement from the team (we do not know the details of this announcement, so TUNE IN!).
Here’s what to expect tonight when you listen:
This week's show will feature an exclusive announcement from Evil Geniuses, which will be announced live on the air and only on Lo3. Team EG manager Alex "chibsquad" Garfield will be on the show to discuss in length the announcement, as well as talk with us about various developments of the team as of late including the new StarCraft division, and the Counter-Strike 1.6 team replacing Gravitas Gaming at the KODE5 finals. Expect some CSProMod talk as well!
WCG Ultimate Gamer is down to it's final six competitors as StarSlay3r "Ciji" Thornton was eliminated this week in a rather dramatic episode. We will talk with her about her feelings of being eliminated by Mark and all of the emotions surrounding her relationship with him on the show, her experience on the show, and thoughts about people's comments about her from the Internet.
We will go through the week's happening in eSports including SK's win at KODE5 Sweden, Pandemic's win over compLexity in the TF2 CEVO finals, and the WoW 3.1 patch release and it's effect on eSports.
Tune in Thursday, April 16th at 7 PM EST/01:00 AM CET at the following links. Wheat will be on the air an hour earlier with Wheatisms and music.
Embedded below is episode 10 which includes the interview with iNcontroL, make sure to check it out and then tune in live to hear the exclusive (SK-gaming is calling the announcement “huge”) announcement pertaining to Evil Geniuses. Feel free to speculate what the announcement is in the comments, but make sure to listen tonight!
Make sure to listen to later shows also, as iNcontroL will make a guest appearence to talk in detail about his thoughts on StarCraft II and the StarCraft competitive scene.
