Business Associates are down to four members after the Peruvian support Joel Mori “MoOz” Ozambela announced his departure from the team.
MoOz joined the squad at the beginning of the season, in September 2019, when Clinton “Fear” Loomis and co were still playing under the J.Storm banner. Regarded as one of the most promising players from the young generation, it didn’t take too long for MoOz to be noticed and scooped out of Peru. Before moving outside his region, MoOz played for Gorillaz-Pride and Infamous. His first important venture into the NA region came with beastcoast in the The International 2019 regional qualifiers. The beastcoast roster from back then featured an SA-NA mix and didn’t make it through the qualifier battle. In the post TI9 shuffle window beastcoast released the entire roster and signed the SA line-up that placed top eight at TI9. MoOz along with his teammate Braxton “Brax” Paulson were recruited by J.Storm.
Despite a top six finish at the first Major tournament of the 2019-2020 Dota Pro Circuit, J.Storm has quietly dropped the team, leaving the five players along with their coach Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho scrambling to find a new sponsor. Earlier this year, the team qualified for the second Minor of the season and branded themselves Business Associates. Unfortunately, the online leagues coming to the Dota 2 competitive scene earlier than anticipated and the travel restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic forced Business Associates to play with two of their members on high ping. With MoOz from Peru and Leon “Nine” Kirilin playing from Europe, BA reached top four at ESL One Los Angeles Online and top 6 at the recently concluded BTS Pro Series Americas. No other online tournaments are announced for now to include Americas division and with no updates coming from Valve about the paused Dota Pro Circuit, Business Associates as well as MoOz might have a bit of time to find new solutions for the future.
