TNC Predator has revealed that it has made the tough call to release the entirety of its DOTA 2 squad following an "extended hiatus." Starting from September 15, Gabbi, Armel, Jun "Bok" Kanehara, Timothy "Tims" Randrup, and Marvin "Boomy" Rushton will be free agents and available to join other line-ups. An exclusive interview with the departed members is set to be held tomorrow on Facebook and can be watched here.
Sharing the news on Facebook, the team said: "It's been quite the journey these past three to four years, especially with Tims, Armel and Gabbi. TNC has broken several barriers and overcome many obstacles during this period, and we are grateful to have had such talented players spearheading the growth of Philippine esports on a global scale. As for Bok and Boomy, you were both essential to our TI run this year, the victories we picked up along the way could not have been done without you. Thank you for sharing your skills and personalities with TNC Predator. You will always be part of our TNC family wherever you may go."
Armel also took to Twitter following the announcement and posted: "4 YRS of ups & down with the team, its been truly an honor to be part of this org. I've grown as a player & as an individual. Wherever I'll go, I will always use what they taught me. Thank you TNC and my teammates for everything!"
It's unclear just what these players will do next, but we wish them the very best of luck.
Thanks, Dot Esports.
