David Dashtoyan, Tundra Esports’ new Head of Business Development, commented: “I immediately pledged my allegiance to Tundra right after the Dota 2 roster announcement when I saw that two of the team members – Sneyking and Aui_2000 – also competed for my own team that I founded in New York back in 2018.

“I travelled to Singapore to cheer for the guys at The International 2022, and the moment they lifted the Aegis of Immortal, I knew I had to become a part of Tundra’s legacy. I look forward to helping drive Tundra’s vision to become a household name for the gaming community.”
