With both Muhammad "InYourdreaM" Rizky and Kenny "Xepher" Deo leaving their respective teams earlier this week, we suspected that an Indonesian shuffle was on the cards. But we didn’t expect the move across borders to form one of the most formidable lineups in the SEA Dota 2 scene
TNC Tiger has reportedly picked up the two players, replacing Mac and 458 in their active roster. While no public statement has been made from the Filipino organization, it falls in line with their previous practice of not announcing any roster news until the lineup is finalized. Which leads us to believe that these moves might still be tryout sessions for a place on the official roster.
For now, the playing 5 of TNC Tiger are assumed to be:
- Theeban “1437” Siva
- Lee “kYxY” Kong Yang
- Pang “BrayaNT” Jian Zhe
- Muhammad "InYourdreaM" Rizky
- Kenny "Xepher" Deo

TNC Tiger was announced as the secondary squad of the TNC organization formed earlier this year. They have been steadily building up their lineup under the leadership of Theeban “1437” Siva. Despite multiple roster shuffles, the team has yet to make a mark in any of the SEA Open Qualifiers.
Perhaps these acquisitions will be the final push that the organization needs, to push it into the upper tiers of SEA Dota.
