The Pinoy squad was one of the most feared teams in SEA scene towards the end of last season where they managed to qualify for 4 International LANs in a row. However, they were unable to convert any of them into meaningful results. They also failed to qualify for TI7 which has lead to the departures of Gabbi, Flysolo and Rapy.
BoK, Jeyo and MAC will be their replacements in the new look Pinoy Squad.
BoK last played as the offlaner for Entity Gaming in ROG Masters 2017 – Philippines qualifier. He is regarded as one of the best offlaners that the SEA scene has to offer, but success has been eluding BoK for a long time now.
Jeyo was last seen playing for the Happyfeet roster. Prior to that, he was on PPD’s Team Wanted, which fizzled out almost as soon as it was formed. Jeyo is known for playing both the hard carry and support positions, which could serve as a useful dynamic for him and Armel.
Not much is known about MAC except the fact that he is a mechanically gifted player who currently sits at the 13th position in the SEA leaderboards.
Clutch Gamers' full roster will be as follows:
- Marvin "Boombacs" Rushton
- Armel Paul "Armel" Tabios
- Jun "Bok" Kanehara
- Jio "Jeyo" Madayag
- Mac "Mac" Tan
