On Friday, January 26, 2024, beastcoast announced its return to competitive Dota 2 with a new all-Peruvian roster. The lineup will feature no returning players form the previous iteration of the roster, which was released on October 29, 2023.

After three months, beastcoast returned to Dota 2 with an announcement of a new roster which will represent the prominent South American organisation in 2024.

The new lineup features Pablo “Vitaly” Angulo, Yheremi “payk” Paucar Arroyo, Luis “Lumpy” Villarreal Yausin, Anthony “Gardick” López, and Joel “MoOz” Ozambela, all formerly of Infinity. However, despite joining beastcoast from the same team, this lineup features both young talent and experienced veterans.

A Promising Group

Beastcoast’s new roster all previously played for Infinity, but left the team at the end of 2023 and have since stuck together, playing as Bulls. 

As an independent squad, the Peruvian players won BetBoom Dacha Dubai 2024: NA and SA Open Qualifier #1 but crashed out of the closed qualifier in fifth-sixth place and earlier this month exited DreamLeague Season 22: South America Closed Qualifier in seventh-eighth.

Despite their lack of success since the turn of the year, payk and co. accomplished plenty as a part of Infinity. They won EPL World Series: America Season 7 and Season 8 and ended the year with a bronze medal from True Fighters 2023.

The roster welcomes a few known faces from the SA Dota 2 scene, including MoOz, who returns to beastcoast after his stint with the team in 2019-2020, and Gardick, who led Hokori to the playoffs of The International 2021.

Even though the new lineup holds some promise, they’ll have big shoes to fill. 

Beastcoast had a solid run through the 2023 season. The team won the first and second DPC SA 2023 Tour 1: Division and placed fourth at BetBoom Dacha 2023. In bigger events, beastcoast weren’t as successful, finishing Bali Major 2023 in seventh-eighth and The International 2023 in 17th-20th place.

Beascoast will debut the new roster at ESL One Birmingham 2024: South America Closed Qualifier, set to kick off on January 28, 2024, when beastcoast clash with another Peruvian squad, South Team.
