Is North America's greatest Dota captain gearing for a comeback?

Just few minutes ago, Peter 'PPD' Dager's name came up in Valve's official Dota roster tracker for the Kiev Major, having signed up under the team WanteD. The former world champion has been away from competitive play the past few months, after stepping down from the Evil Geniuses Dota team in order to become the organization's new CEO.

Joining the salt master in WanteD is aggressive midlaner Sun 'QO' Yeob Kim, who is the latest player from the old MVP Phoenix to leave the Korean megateam, following FoRev and Dubu leaving for Team Liquid and Team Onyx, respectively.

A third big name in joining WanteD, as Canada-based Filipino Jio 'Jeyo' Madayag joins the team. Most Filipino fans will be familiar with Jeyo, as he was the carry of the Rave squad that fiinished 5/6th in the very first Dota 2 Asia Championships two years ago.

Former Alliance and compLexity playmaker Rasmus 'Chessie' Blomdin, the first to register under WanteD, reveals in a tweet that the team will be playing in a limited amount of tournaments as he recovers from back issues.

It remains to be seen just how pdd will balance time (and of course, his interests) as CEO of EG. He has, however, confirmed that the team will be "part-time" in a separate VLOG.

Rounding off the team is none other than Noah 'Monk/Boris' Minhas, a new name that will now have to bear the burden of playing alongside just renowned stars.
