TNC to Announce a New Dota 2 Roster This Week
Philippine-based professional Dota 2 team, TNC Predator revealed that it has come to an agreement with its current players and will announce a full new roster this week. The organization revealed that it has discussed terms of individual growth with its players and came to an agreement that an entirely new roster would be “the best decision moving forward.“
As a result, TNC Predator unveiled that it will announce its full roster on September 15, 2021. Additionally, the org said that it has broken several barriers and overcome many obstacles in the last three to four years with the existing roster. TNC thanked the talented players for helping “spearhead the growth of the Philippine esports on a global scene.” Moreover, TNC thanked Jun “Bok” Kanehara as well as Marvin “Boomy” Rushton personally and acknowledged that the victories this year couldn't have been done without them.
Gabbi, Armel, Timothy “Tims” Randrup, Jun “Bok” Kanehara as well as Marvin “Boomy” Rushton are expected to be released officially during TNC's official announcement this week. Looking at the individual players we see Timothy “Tims” Randrup, who has been a part of TNC Predator for nearly 5 years as he joined in December 2016. Additionally, the organization may also part ways with Gabbi and Armel. Both of them have been a part of TNC Predator since 2018.
“The organization and its players have discussed in terms of individual growth and have come to an agreement that this would be the best decision moving forward,” reads a statement released by TNC Predator
Although Bok and Boomy are the most recent additions to the roster, they will likely part ways with the organization as well. Both of them only recently joined TNC Predator to participate in the 2021 Dota Pro Circuit second season.
Whatever the reason behind TNC's decision is, this may prove to be an opportunity for the players. If they part ways with TNC, they may choose to compete together once again, or start negotiating with other esports organizations and resume playing as a part of new teams.
