    Happy Friday!

    Demon returns to DC, replaces MoonMeander

    North American veteran DeMoN has returned to Digital Chaos. After being kicked from the team earlier this year, Demon tried his luck with compLexity Gaming and most recently with Team Tuho. Neither engagements worked out for him, but he has found his way back to Digital Chaos, who went on to qualify for The International without him. He replaces former Planet Odd offlaner MoonMeander, who had taken on the reigns at DC as both the captain and 5 position support. Moon was however unable to find success with Digital Chaos, as the team failed to qualify for any event thus far.
