Tigers has just announced that they have parted ways with Danil "Dendi" Ishutin and Kenny "Xepher" Deo.


Dendi signed for Tigers earlier this year after parting ways with Na’Vi after 7 years with the organization. The iteration of the SEA squad with Dendi and Xepher didn’t qualify for any DPC tournaments and hasn’t really surpassed fans' expectations.

"Thank you for giving me great opportunity to play in SEA for Tigers. It was great experience and fun times.” said Dendi. “Unfortunately our results were not very good so I decided to try something new. I really wish you to find success and achieve the goals you want."

Xepher, on the other hand, started off the season on a high note, playing a crucial part in their triumph at the DreamLeague Season 10 Minor. Unfortunately, the team has regressed since then, and haven’t really performed that well ever since.

With the departure of Xepher and Dendi, Tigers’ roster is now comprised of only 3 players:

  • Tho Trinh “458” Van

  • Kim “Velo” Tae-sung

  • Sivatheeban “1437” Sivanathapillai

As of the time of writing, Tigers has not yet announced who will be replacing Dendi and Xepher in their lineup.
