Gothenburg, Sweden – September 16, 2016 – Alliance, a world-leading esport team, is announcing today the addition of Jonas “Jonassomfan” Lindholm, Linus “Limmp” Blomdin and Simon “Handsken” Haag to our Dota 2 roster. They will, together with Jonathan “Loda” Berg and Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist, complete the Alliance Dota 2 team.
Simon and Linus have been top competitors in the international Dota 2 scene for the past year and will bring their talent and experience to the team as they make their return to Sweden. While Jonas is a newer face he’s had plenty of competitive experience in the past, most notably on Ninjas in Pyjamas, and is without a doubt one of the most promising up and coming Swedish talents.
We’re thrilled to have them join us and believe that this mix of both old and new blood will bring with it a new and strengthened Alliance.
To reflect this new era we’ve launched a refreshed look for Alliance. We’re immensely proud of our legacy, so we’re retaining core elements of the previous logo while adding modern and simplified elements that symbolize our step forward as the new Alliance.
In addition to this we’re thrilled to announce that Joakim “Akke” Akterhall and Henrik “AdmiralBulldog” Ahnberg will stay in the Alliance family and continue to represent the Alliance brand while not being an active part of the Dota roster. New members to the brand will be joining across Hearthstone and Super Smash Bros Melee in the weeks ahead, as well as a few surprises thrown in there for the fans. Keep your eyes on www.thealliance.gg each week for the latest updates.
Long Live Alliance.
