"After a longish break and a roster change, my team and I are really excited for some competition and to prove that we are still on top – Donio 'Doni' Teixeira"

"We're extremely excited for the Bravado Brawl, with our new additions to the team we are confident and motivated to put on a strong performance. Big shout out to all those that brought this tournament together, it's gonna be a real treat – Wesley 'oDu' Rose"
Team Ichigogogo (UK)
“Hi All ^^ Was asked to provide a little statement about us and our thoughts on this tournament. Firstly thanks to Bravado for hosting and inviting us to this tournament, do not know much about the SA Dota 2 competitive scene so we are all very much excited to participate in this tournament and see how we fair against the best of SA!
A little about us, the team consists of myself (1cHiGo_), my brother and 3 other friends. We've known each other for a long time, some of us 7 to 8 years playing Dota together – Essentially 5 friends who play a0l ot of pubs who love to compete and improve! We are not an official team as such and don't really have a name, but in recent UK tourneys we've gone under the alias ICHIGOGOGO. 😀
We hope to do well in this tournament and wish all participants the best of luck! :)”

"Looking forward our top teams fighting against the UK's best. Along with testing the waters with the new addition of Disappoint. All in all should be a fun tournament and hopefully we can give good results – Ryan 'xeRa' O'Doherty"
Team Bronze (UK) Twitter
“We feel very comfortable facing the other british squads having more so than not achieved comfortable victories against them in previous cups despite a couple upsets that have led to the recent roster changes.
On the other hand the SA scene is a scene we know very little about and will be interesting to see what style of DotA they play. The British teams tend to have their own less orthodox ways of playing and I assume it will be the same within the SA scene which could lead to the creation of an exciting tournament.”
Team Liberty FOJ (RSA) Facebook | Twitter
"We as FoJ, moving from NSD to LiB-esports, are excited to be included into the Bravado Brawl, ending summer leg in dgl in a good position and having 3 roster changes, this will definitely be the a step in the right direction for us to grow as a team as more experience will be gained with UK's top teams being in this showdown, looking forward to it and hoping to make another underdog success"
Team Infused (UK) Website | Twitter
"Infused was formed in December 2005 and in the 8 year period of its existence has gone from strength to strength competing at the highest level online over the internet or offline at gaming events around the United Kingdom (Insomnia), Europe (Dreamhack/ESWC) and North America (MLG)."
