After unsatisfactory results at DreamLeague Season 11, where the team placed 13-16th, Forward Gaming decided to change their roster significantly. Two players – Saahil "UNiVeRsE" Arora and Avery "SVG" Silverman – have left the team, while Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok will take a short break from competitive scene but remain in the organization. In the nearest future the team will play with Quinn "CC&C" Callahan, Jingjun "Sneyking" Wu and Kartik "Kitrak" Rathi.
UNiVeRsE, who used to play on the third position, announced that he will take a short break from competitive scene. SVG, the team’s former captain, has decided to end his Dota 2 career. Resolut1on will miss the qualifiers for MDL Disneyland Paris Major and is expected to return for the qualifiers for The Epicenter Major.
As for the three new players, CC&C is the team’s new permanent member while Sneyking and Kitrak joined the team on trial. As the result of the roster change, Yawar "YawaR" Hassan has transferred to position 1, while Arif "MSS" Anwar will continue to play as a semi-support. With this roster they will participate in the qualifiers for the next major.
