After some time ago, we listened to TI6 champion, Wings Gaming, unable to participate in DOTA Pit Season 5 due to visa issues. Through Dota Pit’s twitter, Elements Pro Gaming was announced which will replace Wings Gaming.

It is unfortunate that Wings Gaming did not participate in seeing its brilliant achievements in 2016. Apart from TI6, they also won the 2016 ESL One Manila, The Summit 5, The Nanyang Championship Crusie Cup # 1, and the Northern Arena BEAT Invitational.
Elements Pro Gaming itself was chosen after they were defeated by OG in the final of DOTA Pit Season 5 European qualification with a score of 3-2.
The following is a list of the teams that take part in Dota Pit Season 5:
- Elements Pro Gaming (Direct Invite)
- Digital Chaos (Direct Invite)
- OG (European Region Qualification # 1)
- Team Secret (European Region Qualification # 2)
- Virtus.Pro (CIS Region Qualification)
- Team Faceless (SEA Region Qualification)
- Invictus Gaming (China Region Qualification)
- Evil Geniuses (American Region Qualification)
Dota Pit Season 5 will be held at Spaladium Arena, Split, Croatia on 20-22 January 2017. Good luck, for the team that will compete !!!
