Each seasons winds brings change. The trees shed their leaves, flocks and herds migrate, and Dota 2 players look for new teams to take to the next Major. Though theres something to be said for the (relative) stability of the modern Dota 2 scene, there is still plenty of drama surrounding the roster shuffle before and after each International.Since the inception of the Majors system, the chaos has been more structured and reliable, but the post-International offseason alone had 447 different changes logged in the Majors registration database. Between players adding, joining, being dropped or just put on hold, this offseason was a major scramble. So who came out victorious, looking primed for the top, and who could use a second shuffle?The WinnersWings GamingWings is the softball answer to the question, keeping all five members of the TI6-winning roster on the same squad. These five would likely have little reason to want to leave. Its difficult to imagine if Zhang Faith_bian Ruidas oddball offlane picks or Li iceice Pengs massive support pool could translate well to any other squad in China, let alone the world. Theres always the post-TI curse to worry about, but unlike Alliance or Evil Geniuses, its unlikely anyone has fully downloaded Wings yet.Team LiquidLosing Adrian FATA- Trinks to a leave of absence and Jesse JerAx Vainikka to another European super-squad was difficult for Liquid. The two selected to take their spots, however, look to breathe some new life into the team. Amer Miracle- Al-Barkawi is a playmaker, able to offer a one-two punch with Lasse MATUMBAMAN Urpalainen in the core roles. Though Kanishka BuLba Sosale is most recently known for his offlane play, putting him in the four-five support role as a co-captain with Kuro Salehi KuroKy Takhasomi adds some synergy and unity to the team. Smart additions were made here, rather than risky pick-ups, and the current Team Liquid roster looks every bit as fearsome as it did at TI6.Team SecretThe third definite winner of the fall roster shuffle is one that made massive changes to the lineup. Losing three out of five players may look dire for most rosters, but Secret was already in the straits after consecutive disappointing performances in Manila and Seattle. Taking note of the big winners from TI6, Clement Puppey Ivanov and Johan pieliedie Astrom built around themselves a whos who of SEA titans. Former MVP players Pyo MP No-a and Lee Forev Sang-don, as well as Fnatics rising star Yeik MidOne Nai Zheng moved over to form a better SEA-cret. Its hard to know whether communication between teammates will become an issue, but this international roster certainly lives up to the Secret credo of all-star team.FnaticIt was hard to see Fnatic as a candidate for this category at the start of the roster shuffle. The organization parted ways with three players over the course of a week, leaving Chai Mushi Yee Fung with only an offlaner and plenty of spots to fill. In their place, though, Fnatic formed what might become one of the most intimidating rosters in the SEA region. Marc Polo Raven Luis Fausto, Nico eyyou Barcelon and Jimmy DeMoN Ho came over from a stellar TnC roster to fill the gaps, and now Fnatic looks even more promising than last year. The SEA region is steadily becoming a force to be reckoned with in international Dota, and Fnatic will be leading the charge with this lineup.The QuestionableOGA bubble team for the winners circle, OGs roster looks incredible on paper. Just looking at names like Gustav s4 Magnusson and JerAx, you have two top-tier European competitors. Add the relatively unknown Anathan ana Pham, and you have a talented young rookie looking to make a name for himself in mid lane - a situation that has led to breakout players in the past. Once you start to segment off the roles, though, some holes start to show up. Magnusson isnt a tournament-tested offlaner in a meta where offlane play has become critical to success. Pham could certainly make plays, but it could also lead to a similar situation to last years OG, where shutting down the mid means shutting down the team. Theres too many question marks with OG, and this roster will need a LAN or two under its feet before conclusions can really be drawn.Evil GeniusesThe third time could be the charm for prodigal son Artour Arteezy Babaev, who has certainly been a playmaker for the team in the past. Under the tutelage of Clinton Fear Loomis, a player-turned-coach for EG, Arteezy could be a whole new ... Arteezy. In previous tournaments, though, EG has typically relied on its veteran players to direct the squad; Syed SumaIL Hassan, Saahil UNiVeRsE Arora and Ludwig zai Wahlberg are talented, but the guiding hand of Loomis and departing captain Peter ppd Dager were key to many of EGs major victories. Andreas Franck Cr1t Nielsen, who comes over from OG to take Dagers role as both captain and five-role support, has big shoes to fill. Its a new dawn for EG, and it could go either way.Team NPSometimes, to have a good roster shuffle, you just have to make your own team. Built on a desire to avoid organizational issues and just build a team of players who want to play together, Team NP has a pretty intimidating lineup. Kurtis Aui_2000 Ling and Jacky EternaLEnVy Mao make for solid cores, and Theeban 1437 Silva returning to the five-role is great to see. The question marks are Arif MSS Anwar and Avery SVG Silverman, who have been on and off rosters with varying results, competing at mostly regional tournaments and qualifiers. The star power that left Secret is certainly enough to put NP on radars, but whether or not Anwar and Silverman step up will be a major factor in the success of the team.The LosersTnC GamingAfter an incredible run at The International, TnC Gaming set records and broke barriers for the Philippines. It was heartwarming to watch a region so often overlooked make such a massive run, finishing higher than any Filipino team before it. The offseason was not kind, though, as teams took notice, and one-by-one the stellar players of TnC dropped and considered offers. Though two players, Carlo Kuku Palad and Sam Sam_H Enojosa Hidalgo eventually returned, TnC was gutted by the offseason, and now has to compete with several SEA rosters who only grew stronger from the shuffle.LGD GamingThe Chinese teams dropped all their players from their rosters and it was a bit of a shock for most. It was initially intended to de-incentivize players from using free agency to negotiate better contracts, but in some cases, it led to mass dissolutions of rosters, and LGD felt it the most. Left with only Li Maybe Yao, a team formerly made up of superstars and veterans dissolved into a one-man show. The new LGD roster is made up of former CDEC.Youth and Vici Potential players, but this team lacks international experience. Recruited mostly from developmental squads with inconsistent performances, Yao and LGD Gaming will need a lot of practice and LAN experience built up to be a competitor at the next Major.CompLexity GamingThis one hurts a little, as coL has been a personal favorite of mine to watch grow. But if the TI wildcards were unkind to compLexity, the offseason was brutal. Losing both Blomdin brothers and Simon Handsken Haag left coL in a tenuous spot, in desperate need of some new talent. The team was lucky enough to find some in David Moo Hull, but the counterweights are Justin jk Rosselle and Mihai cancel Antonio, two players who are untested on the international stage and generally known for pub play rather than competitive achievements. A full revamp for coL is definitely what was needed for the struggling NA team, but the new roster will be working overtime to establish itself against not one, but two titans in the American scene in EG and DC. Look for Kyle melonzz Freedman in his new support role to be the leader and X-factor.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Andrej Lemanis says his future as coach of the Boomers rests with Basketball Australia.Lemanis has led the mens national team since April 2013, guiding them through the World Cup in 2014 and to a heart-breaking fourth-place finish at the Rio Olympics.He returns to the NBL this season with the Brisbane Bullets, having previously coached the New Zealand Breakers to three championships in his eight-year tenure.But whether that rules him out of the national coaching gig, Lemanis was unsure.He said that will depend on the impact of the new qualifying format for major tournaments, to start from 2017, in which Austrralia will go through the Asia-Pacific region instead of Oceania.ddddddddddddts up to Basketball Australia now to figure out what the new format looks like and whats best for Australian basketball under that system, the 47-year-old said.If they need a full-time coach, then that obviously rules me out.If they decide on a part-time coach, that someone coaching in the NBL can do it, obviously well have that discussion.Its always an honour, but like everybody on the team you do whats best for the team.
